Many patients seek abdominoplasty to improve their abdomen’s appearance after pregnancy, weight loss, or the aging process takes its toll on abdominal skin and muscle tone. Additionally, liposuction of the abdomen and flanks is typically included as part of the tummy tuck without an additional fee.
The Tummy Tuck Procedure
In Seattle, our experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Jonov, performs abdominoplasty under general anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on each patient’s specific needs at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery. The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is generally performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing patients to return home the same day.
Depending on the degree of improvement needed, your surgeon will perform either a full or mini-tummy tuck. A full tummy tuck addresses issues of excess skin, unwanted fat and lax muscle in both the upper and lower abdomen. A mini-tummy tuck addresses issues in the lower abdomen only, often requiring a smaller incision and less recovery time than a full tummy tuck.
Through careful consultation, our expert cosmetic surgeon at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery can help you determine if a full or mini-tummy tuck can help you meet your aesthetic goals for your abdominoplasty. Seattle patients can choose a tummy tuck alone or combined with other procedures, such as liposuction, a thigh lift, breast augmentation, and breast lift (mastopexy) for a more complete rejuvenation.
Aftercare for a Tummy Tuck in Seattle
Recovery from a tummy tuck varies from patient to patient, but generally takes 2-4 weeks, with light work activity resuming after 10-14 days. For the first 2-3 days, patients will experience stiffness and limited mobility. Pain is well-managed with a pain pump as well as oral pain medication to control discomfort. Typically, no wound drains are necessary. Swelling will subside after 3-4 weeks, and scarring, though permanent, will fade considerably over the first two years.
