Tummy Tuck


Reshape Your Tummy

As we go through life, it's natural for our bodies to undergo a series of changes. Whether they were caused by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or aging, a tummy tuck is a popular procedure for those who are looking to restore a slimmer, firmer, and more contoured appearance to the abdomen. This look can be achieved by removing excess fat, tightening the skin, and underlying muscles around your midsection.

For those who have dedicated themselves to shedding a significant amount of weight, a tummy tuck can also mark the completion of your successful body transformation by addressing any excess skin and stretch marks left behind.

Beyond the physical improvements, an abdominoplasty can also enhance your overall comfort, confidence, and self-esteem.

What’s involved in a tummy tuck procedure?


A tummy tuck restructures the stomach by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the abdominal muscles. The incision is made horizontally along the lower abdomen and is concealed by most bathing suit bottoms. The procedure takes 2 to 3 hours and is performed in an operating room. After adequate observation in the recovery center, patients are discharged the same day. 

What should I expect in terms of recovery after a tummy tuck?


The recovery time for a tummy tuck procedure can vary from person to person. Generally speaking, most patients will need to take 3 weeks off of work and heavy physical activity.

In the immediate aftermath of the surgery, patients are advised to rest and limit their activities. During this initial phase, soreness, swelling, and bruising are common. It is important to follow Dr. Hedi’s post-operative instructions, which may include wearing a compression garment, taking medications as prescribed, and avoiding strenuous activities. As the weeks progress, most patients gradually return to their daily routines with noticeable improvement in their abdominal contour.
