The Tummy Tuck Procedure
The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal region. The procedure can help restore weakened or separated muscles in the region, as well, creating a firmer, more toned contour of the body.
The process begins with a consultation and evaluation session in which Dr. Hall will assess your case, talk to you about your goals, explain your options and determine the proper course of action.
The procedure involves an incision made between the pubic line and navel where excess fat and skin are removed and any needed muscle repair is accomplished. The length of the incision will vary based on the amount of fat and skin to be removed. A second incision around the navel may be required to remove excess skin. More dynamic results may be achieved by combining the procedure with liposuction, though this is a decision that should be made in consultation with your doctor. Changes will be immediately apparent, though overall results will become more defined over time. The procedure can take place in an office surgical facility or in a hospital, and is usually performed under general anesthesia.
