Thousands of individuals undergo the tummy tuck procedure every year. Whether it’s to get back to a pre-baby body, remove excess skin from weight loss, or simply to improve the look of their tummy, we’re ready to help you achieve your tummy goals. But despite its popularity and countless articles with FAQs, there are questions you should ask during your tummy tuck consultation.
Questions for your tummy tuck consultation
- What procedure is right for me? We perform full, mini, and extended tummy tucks to help our patients achieve their desired look. Depending on your goals and the amount of fat/skin removal required to get there will dictate what procedure is right for you.
- What is your experience with the procedure? It’s important that your surgeon is well versed in the procedure you’re looking to have completed.
- What can I expect for recovery time? Recovery time will vary depending on the extent of your procedure so you should ask your surgeon what to expect prior to getting started. Additionally, some individuals heal faster than others so your surgeon should be able to give you an estimated recovery time based on a variety of factors. The average recovery time is roughly 2-3 weeks.
- Is this the best procedure for me? You may think a tummy tuck is best for you and can achieve your results but that may not be the case. In some scenarios, we recommend additional procedures to achieve your desired look. For example, a mommy makeover if you’re trying to achieve your pre-baby body or an arm or thigh lift if you have additional skin that needs to be removed.
