Tummy Tuck

TUMMY TUCK SURGERY, ALBANY, NY

INDICATIONS FOR TUMMY TUCK, Albany (ABDOMINOPLASTY)
Changes in the abdominal wall occur as a result of pregnancy, weight loss, and aging. The amount of skin and fat and the weakness and separation of the abdominal muscles, directs the extent of surgery necessary. Most often a full abdominoplasty is needed, however we do tailor the operative procedure to the specific needs of our patients to achieve a flat abdomen.

TUMMY TUCK (ABDOMINOPLASTY) SURGERY 
The abdominoplasty surgery includes removal of excess skin through a lower abdominal wall through an incision, possible liposuction to selected areas, and tightening of rectus muscles.
Time 2-4 hrs.

LOCATION FOR THE SURGERY
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)  surgery is performed at Ellis hospital conveniently located just outside of Albany, NY.  The procedure is done under general anesthesia.  It requires a 1-2 day hospital stay.

TRADE OFFS
Moderate surgical discomfort, bruising, swelling, numbness of the abdominal wall skin, and a permanent lower abdominal and periumbilical scar is expected.

RISKS OF TUMMY TUCK SURGERY
Although uncommon, infection, bleeding, delayed healing, skin loss, poor scarring, phlebitis and blood clots are complications that can prolong recovery or necessitate a return to surgery.

RECOVERY FROM TUMMY TUCK SURGERY 
After Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) surgery, our patients wear a supporting garment or girdle for 3-4 weeks to encourage good wound healing and minimize complications. Patients return to work and light physical activity at 2- 4 weeks and a normal exercise routine at 6 weeks. Most patients are tired for 3- 4 weeks after surgery. Scar maturation occurs in 18-24 months.
