Your Guide to Tummy Tuck Surgery in DC

For your tummy tuck surgery, your expert plastic surgeon at Bruno |Brown Plastic Surgery will work with you to determine how the procedure can best address your goals. We take a holistic approach to this surgery which means that the overall waistline is shaped to achieve the best results, rather than focusing solely on the problem area. This approach is so comprehensive it can help you drop several pants sizes and ensures the results are as natural-looking as possible.

During this procedure, the appearance of your abdomen is reshaped. Benefits can include a flattened abdominal area, tightened stomach muscles, reduced waistline size, reduced appearance of stretch marks (particularly after pregnancy), and removal of excess, loose, or hanging skin (especially after a significant weight loss). The surgery usually takes two to four hours with a recovery time of two to three weeks. Your expert plastic surgeon will work with you to determine which option is best for your circumstances.

Tummy Tuck options include:

  • Full tummy tuck: Involving an incision across the hip line and around the belly button
  • Mini tummy tuck: Involving a much smaller incision (often combined with liposuction)
  • Extended tummy tuck: Involving multiple incisions around the flank, lower back, and hip line (best for patients who have lost significant amounts of weight)

Many candidates for tummy tuck surgery have experienced pregnancy or a significant weight loss which has left stubborn, excess tissue and loose skin that diet and exercise alone cannot remove. Ideal candidates for this procedure are in good health and near their ideal weight, with realistic goals in mind for their desired look.

As experienced plastic surgeons, we look forward to hearing from you to schedule your tummy tuck surgery in Washington, DC or free consultation soon.
