About Abdominoplasty Surgery

For adult individuals, sagging skin and unwanted fat throughout the abdomen can be frustrating and challenging despite attempts to reduce it. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging are the most popular reasons why someone may not be able to create a tighter and slimmer tummy. An abdominoplasty is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that reshapes the stomach area, producing great results for patients. Midland, MI Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. David Yonick performs abdominoplasty that is tailored on the results desired. This popular surgery at Yonick Plastic Surgery allows individuals the chance to have a gorgeous new figure and restored confidence.

Ideal Candidates

Abdominoplasty can be successful for both women and men. If you find yourself upset over sagging skin as well as unwanted fat in the tummy section, this cosmetic surgery can help produce a tighter and slimmer appearance. Before undergoing this treatment, Dr. Yonick suggests that you be at a stable weight. Abdominoplasty is not a procedure to help you lose weight — it treats loose skin. Liposuction is usually implemented during surgery to remove fat. If your stomach area has healthy skin tautness, but you are still unhappy with the appearance of your midsection even though you have worked to lose weight, another option may be liposuction. Women considering this treatment should be be past pregnancy to ensure the the surgical outcomes are not affected.

Surgical Technique

Body contouring of the abdomen is performed with general anesthesia. There are various techniques to consider when performing this surgery by Dr. Yonick, which is geared to the patient's specific goals. For starters, the incision shape is chosen based on the measure of skin that should be removed. Some patients with extensive sagging and loose skin may require a full tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck places the incision from hipbone to hipbone just above the pubic region. Other patients with minimal skin looseness but are still annoyed by the look of their abdomen may be better suited for a mini tummy tuck. These individuals still benefit from skin tightening, but will simply receive a smaller scar. Regardless of the nature of the surgery, all tummy tuck procedures at Yonick Plastic Surgery involve the removal of sagging skin and fat removal.

What to Expect

Following this procedure, you will be monitored and released wearing a compression garment to minimize swelling. Walking upright will be slow-going at first, so you should rest for a few days. Standing and moving becomes easier once the tightness subsides and the incision heals. Most patients can resume everyday functions near two weeks. Exercise can begin later, closer to the two-month mark or when you are cleared by Dr. Yonick. The tummy area will feel tight and uncomfortable, but after healing, you will look and feel normal again.
