What is a Tummy Tuck?

A person’s stomach can begin to protrude for a wide variety of reasons, including the natural aging process, genetics, pregnancy, and significant weight gain. Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck can be used to correct this protrusion, tightening weak stomach muscles, removing excess fat and skin, and overall flattening the abdomen.

Before surgery begins, an anesthetic is administered to the patient. An incision is then made between the pubic area and belly button. Excess fat and tissue are removed, the abdominal muscles are repaired, and excess skin is removed. Following treatment, most patients are required to avoid strenuous activity for about six weeks. Scarring from the procedure can take about a year to resolve itself fully, but minimal signs of scarring usually remain for the rest of the patient’s life.

What are the benefits of a Tummy Tuck?

A flat, toned abdomen is one of the most sought after aesthetic features. Because it can be difficult to obtain this through diet and exercise practices alone, a tummy tuck offers patients a simple, effective way to reach their cosmetic goals.

A tummy tuck can also be used to improve a patient’s overall degree of mobility and day to day comfort. The abdominal muscles can become torn or weakened for a variety of reasons; this surgery helps strengthen them to improve both their appearance and functionality.

Am I a Candidate for Tummy Tuck?

Nearly anyone male or female that is interested in tightening and toning their abdomen is a potential candidate for a tummy tuck. However, patients must be physically healthy, at a stable body weight, and non-smokers before undergoing this surgery.

Before having a tummy tuck, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia. During this appointment, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will examine the patient’s stomach and inquire about their health and medical history in order to decide if a tummy tuck is right for them.

We’re proud to offer this amazing aesthetic procedure to patients in the Brentwood, Hendersonville, Mt. Juliet, La Vergne, Smyrna, Franklin, and Nashville, TN areas.
