Tummy Tuck Benefits

What Can You Expect With Tummy Tuck Surgery

The best way to determine if a tummy tuck (and/or a panniculectomy) is the right procedure for you is to have an initial consultation with Dr. Zeuke. You will have an opportunity to discuss your goals and expectations with the doctor, and ask any relevant questions you have about the surgery.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Zeuke will:

  • Review your medical history and any medications you are taking
  • Discuss the part of your body that you would like treated
  • Provide recommendations based on you needs and your goals

Dr. Zeuke will listen to your needs, expectations, and your desired outcome from the surgery. Dr. Zeuke will review all the surgical options that are available to you, and you will be able to tour our state-of-the-art facility and meet with our caring staff that will be part of your team.

There are actually several different types of abdominoplasty, and Dr Zeuke will determine which option is best for you. This is based on the amount of loose skin, excess fat and the laxity of the stomach muscles. The options include:

  • Review your medical history and any medications you are taking
  • Discuss the part of your body that you would like treated
  • Provide recommendations based on you needs and your goals

There are actually several different types of abdominoplasty, and Dr. Zeuke will determine which option is best for you. This is based on the amount of loose skin, excess fat and the laxity of the stomach muscles. The options include:

  1. Tummy Tuck (Complete Abdominoplasty): in this procedure, an incision is made above the pubic hairline, another is made around the belly button, and the muscles that run vertically on each side of the stomach’s front wall are tightened. The skin removal and the muscle tightening are the most critical steps in improving the contour of the stomach. Liposuction may be performed along with the complete tummy tuck, depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed.
  2. Mini Tummy Tuck (Partial Abdominoplasty): a mini tummy tuck is done for patients who have mild to moderate stomach contour changes and have minimal excess skin and little weakness in the abdominal wall.
  3. Circumferential Abdominoplasty: if there is a large amount of excess skin and fat in the back and hip area as well as the abdomen, circumferential abdominoplasty is performed. This helps to improve the body’s contour in three dimensions.

The tummy tuck surgery will be performed in our certified and state of the art medical facility located in Watford. Tummy tucks generally take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. The length of your surgery will depend on your body type and the amount of work that is required.

Differences Between A Mini Tummy Tuck and A Tummy Tuck

There are many differences between a mini tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck. The main differences is that with a mini tummy tuck the area at and above the navel is not treated, so there is no scar or repositioning of the navel.

Reasons to Consider Abdominoplasty

A large amount of weight loss and the resulting sagging skin is only one reason to consider a tummy tuck. Other causes of excess, loose and sagging skin include:

  • Aging
  • Heredity
  • Previous pregnancy
  • Prior surgery

It is perfectly normal to want to have sagging skin or a protruding belly corrected. In addition to wanting to remove the loose skin around the midsection, patients may also want to consider a tummy tuck to:

  • Correct a protruding stomach that is not consistent with the body’s proportions
  • Improve tone in the abdominal and stomach muscles
  • Eliminate skin problems in the skin fold under the abdomen
  • Remove those areas of fat that simply won’t respond to exercise or dieting
  • Correct prominent C-section scarring and stretch marks
  • Repair diastasis recti
  • Repair abdominal muscles that are overly stretched out
