What is a Tummy Tuck?  

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure intended to eliminate surplus skin and fat from the lower abdomen while also tightening the skin of the upper abdomen and the abdominal muscles. This procedure aims to create a firmer and smoother abdominal profile, addressing concerns such as loose or sagging skin and weakened abdominal muscles. For those looking to also improve their breast augmentation results, abdominoplasty can be combined with breast surgery to achieve a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing result.

What are the Benefits of Abdominoplasty? 

Embarking on the journey of tummy tuck opens the door to a world of positive transformations, both inside and out. With a tummy tuck, you can: 

  • Achieve a more toned and contoured midsection
  • Enhance the results of breast augmentation for a balanced and proportionate figure
  • Boost your confidence and self-esteem
  • Enjoy increased comfort in clothing and physical activities
  • Bid farewell to self-consciousness and embrace a renewed sense of pride and liberation

Is Abdominoplasty Right for Me?

The ideal candidate for abdominoplasty in Omaha should be in good general health, at a stable weight, and not planning on becoming pregnant. Having realistic expectations for the procedure is crucial, and it's important to recognize that the results of a tummy tuck are long-lasting, although fluctuations in weight can impact the outcome in the long run. If you're considering abdominoplasty in conjunction with breast augmentation, our esteemed cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Bradley Hall, can help determine if this combination of procedures is suitable for you.

The Day of Your Procedure

On the day of your abdominoplasty procedure, you'll receive general anesthesia to ensure you're comfortable and pain-free throughout the surgery. The details of a tummy tuck can differ depending on the specific technique chosen by Dr. Hall to address your requirements. However, in general, it typically involves making incisions to eliminate surplus skin and fat, tightening the abdominal muscles, and create a new belly button.

The duration of the procedure can range from two to four hours, depending on the extent of the surgery and the desired results. After the procedure, you'll be under observation until your anesthetic wears off and Dr. Hall approves you to go home.

Recovery and Results 

Recovery from a tummy tuck in Omaha varies for each individual. While you may see initial results within a few weeks, swelling can persist for several months, and your final results are often not seen until at least 3-6 months. Dr. Hall will give you specific post-operative guidelines designed to suit your individual needs, ensuring a seamless recovery process. It's important to schedule adequate time off from work and other commitments to allow your body to heal properly. Gradually reintroducing activities under Dr. Hall’s guidance and being mindful of your body's signals can contribute to a successful recovery.

Following abdominoplasty, you can look forward to experiencing a more toned and contoured midsection, which can significantly enhance your overall body profile. As the initial swelling from the surgery gradually subsides, you will start to see the remarkable impact of the procedure, resulting in a renewed sense of confidence and contentment with your appearance. This enhanced physical outcome often translates to a notable boost in self-confidence and a positive impact on your self-esteem.

Abdominoplasty FAQ

Can abdominoplasty be combined with breast augmentation?

Certainly, abdominoplasty can be combined with breast augmentation to attain a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing result.

Will there be visible scarring after abdominoplasty?

Yes, scarring is the tradeoff for an improvement in your contour. Even the best scars will still be visible. However, several steps are taken during and after surgery to ensure the scar is placed in a conspicuous location and that your scar has every opportunity to optimally heal and mature after your surgery.

How long do the results of abdominoplasty last?

The effects of abdominoplasty are long-lasting, but it's important to sustain a stable weight and lead a healthy lifestyle for the best possible outcome.

Can abdominoplasty address stretch marks?

While abdominoplasty can remove some stretch marks below the belly button, its primary focus is on tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin and fat. Stretch marks above the belly button are not removed as part of this procedure. If desired, your surgeon can provide guidance on additional treatments for addressing stretch marks.

How soon after pregnancy can abdominoplasty be performed?

It's generally recommended that you wait until you have completed your family planning and reached a stable weight before considering abdominoplasty. This helps achieve the best results and lowers the chance of requiring further surgery in the future.
