Tummy Tuck Surgery
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is an amazing choice for patients who are not simply seeking to remove belly fat, but also wish to tighten their stomach muscles. Drs. Rosenberg and Lambruschi are able to rid the stomach of excess skin and tissue while also tightening the muscles to create a more contoured belly.* If you are looking to boost your confidence with a tummy tuck, call Valley Plastic Surgery Center today to schedule a complimentary consultation with our outstanding surgeons.
How are Tummy Tucks Performed?
Drs. Rosenberg and Lambruschi begin tummy tucks by making a horizontal incision directly above where the pubic hair begins that goes from one hipbone to the other. The muscle and soft tissue will be tightened, and then the flap will be closed so that the excess skin and fat can be removed. Our patients also have the option of a partial tummy tuck, which involves the surgeon making an incision around the navel so that excess fat deposits can be removed endoscopically. The tummy tuck can last around 2 to 5 hours.
What to Expect After Your Tummy Tuck?
Following your tummy tuck, your surgeon may recommend that a tube is used for 2 to 3 days for excess drainage, and an elastic bandage will be placed around the area to reduce swelling. Swelling, bruising and numbness should dissipate after about 3 weeks, and normal activity can resume after 4 weeks, but a pressure garment should still be worn. For more information about the full recovery process, schedule an appointment with our surgeons at Valley Plastic Surgery Center.
How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost?
Our surgeons will be able to assess the cost of your tummy tuck at your complimentary consultation. All surgeries and procedures are performed at our surgery center, rather than an outside facility. We do this in order to be more cost effective for our patients, while maintaining the highest standards of quality and control. To schedule your consultation, call our office so that you can be on your way to a toned, fit stomach.
Our patients love the smooth contours their stomach has following their tummy tuck, and you can see how incredible the results are in the before and after photos of our Valley Plastic Surgery Center tummy tuck patients.*
Drs. Rosenberg and Lambruschi would like to remind you that your comfort with us is just as important as the entire tummy tuck procedure.
