Some of the most common questions.
This procedure is ideal for men and women as well as older, slightly obese individuals whose skin has lost elasticity over time. Individuals with pockets of excess fat or skin that have not responded well to traditional diet and exercise are also excellent candidates. Women with stretched skin and muscles from pregnancy are prime candidates for a tummy tuck. It is recommended that women wait until they are done having children to undergo a tummy tuck procedure as results can decrease should the patient decide to have more children. A significant amount of weight-loss can also alter results, thus it is suggested that candidates forgo surgery until they have completed any significant weight loss program.
Tummy tucks take approximately 2-5 hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis meaning you get to go home the same day, depending on the individual and the recommendation of Dr. Barrett.
Recovery time is approximately 2 weeks. Vigorous activities should be limited for at least six weeks. During your postoperative care, Dr. Barrett will provide specific instructions for your individual recovery. Following these instructions can help reduce post-surgery complications as well as speed up recovery time.
Dr. Barrett specializes in tummy tucks and makes his incisions very low so that they are not visible when wearing a bikini bottom or underwear. He also specializes in making the belly button natural appearing vs the standard circular belly-buttons most surgeons perform.
Partial abdominoplasty, or “mini tummy tuck”, is similar to the regular tummy tuck procedure, but is ideal for candidates who need only slight alterations to achieve their desired goals. A mini tummy tuck involves a shorter incision and skin is lifted to the navel rather than moving the naval as in a traditional tummy tuck. Dr. Barrett can discuss the differences between the two procedures as well as weigh their benefits to decide which procedure is right for you.
