How Long Do DC Tummy Tucks Generally Take?
Times will of course vary for any Tummy Tuck. At a glance, your procedure may take between 2 to 4 hours, with a possible recovery period between 2 to 3 weeks. There is usually no overnight visit required for this procedure.
Our team at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery is here to guide you through every step of the procedure and post-care process. Each and every patient may have a different surgery recovery process.
What Options Are There For The DC Tummy Tuck?
At Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery we have various DC Tummy Tuck options to be aware of when considering this procedure. Bruno | Brown has three procedures we perform for Tummy Tucks. Whether you want to remove excess skin or fat or want to be evaluated as a candidate for a tummy tuck – we are here to help you find the best options personalized to you.
The Full Tummy Tuck: This involves an incision across your hip line and around the belly button.
The Mini Tummy Tuck: This involves a smaller incision and is often complemented with liposuction.
Extended Tummy Tuck: This is best for people who have lost a significant amount of weight and includes extending the incision around the sides of the body and possibly the lower back.
You can also combine procedures during this time if you wish to receive additional procedures done during your Tummy Tuck. For example, when you’ve lost weight, you may be left with unwanted stretch marks, unwanted excess skin, and loose abdominal muscles. While tummy tuck surgery can help with your stomach area, you may have other areas you would like to target for these various reasons. Many patients choose to combine procedures, especially women who are hoping to get back to a pre-baby body, via the coined term mommy makeover. We can discuss your body contouring goals and additional procedures that can be done at the same time to achieve your ultimate body goals.
We interviewed a Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery patient who recently got a Tummy Tuck. She shares her experience with Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery and the Tummy Tuck procedure. She expressed how long she had wanted the procedure and her comments on the surgery”
“I had been seriously thinking about it for about 3 years. I had thought about it longer than that, but I started seriously considering it about 3 years ago, started doing research, looking at doctors. I didn’t know anyone who had a tummy tuck, but then people don’t really talk about it. I can’t stop saying good things about the doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery. You never know with these kinds of things and you hear so many horror stories. I watch that show ‘Botched,’ but it was just such a great experience. If I ever need anything else done, I’d definitely go to their office, for sure.
Even afterward, the nurses and the recovery nurses and staff were great. Dr. Brown went the extra mile. And he made sure he called; he took the time to make me feel like a VIP. I wasn’t just another patient, another number. I said to him ‘just treat me as if it was your wife.’ And he did, I felt like part of the family. It was a great experience before, during, and after, just impeccable.”
