What is abdominoplasty?

Sometimes, abdominal tissue sags or protrudes outward despite maintaining a healthy weight and getting regular exercise. Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a type of plastic surgery that improves the appearance of your midsection, making it tighter, toned, and flat when diet and exercise alone can’t.

Am I a candidate for abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty may be a good option if you:

  • Are you are at or near an ideal body weight
  • Have excess loose skin (skin laxity)
  • Have protruding abdominal tissue due to genetics or stretched/weakened muscles
  • Have previously experienced massive weight loss or pregnancy
  • Have stubborn fat

To find out if you’re a candidate for abdominoplasty at Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, your provider discusses your medical history and desired outcome. They evaluate your abdomen and let you know what to expect during the procedure before personalizing a surgery that matches your needs.

Your surgeon might combine multiple treatments into one surgery. For example, they could complete breast surgery or liposuction with abdominoplasty. 

When will I see the result of my abdominoplasty?

While you may notice some results immediately after surgery, you likely won’t see the final results of your procedure until you are three to six months into your recovery. As your tissues heal and swelling subsides in the weeks and months after your abdominoplasty, you can expect a tighter, slimmer midsection and optimal body contours.
