What Happens During A Tummy Tuck, DC

During the procedure for a tummy tuck, one of our doctors will make the appropriate incision depending on the technique that is chosen for your procedure. The upper abdominal skin is then pulled down and any excess skin will be trimmed. The incisions are then closed accordingly. Liposuction is often performed before and during the procedure.

While you may benefit from having both a tummy tuck and liposuction depending on your journey/procedure, a tummy tuck is more frequently used to remove excess skin. Liposuction allows for the removal of small areas of fat that cannot be shifted despite proper dieting and exercise.

Benefits of Tummy Tuck, DC

There are several documented benefits of tummy tuck procedures. A tummy tuck requires board-certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown, that will provide expert care and knowledge regarding your procedure.

You may expect benefits such as:

  • Flattening the stomach area
  • Improving the appearance of abdominal muscles
  • Reducing the size of the waistline and hipline
  • Enhancing the overall figure
  • Tightening the stomach muscles
  • Removing excess skin, loose skin, or hanging skin, which may be the result of weight loss or pregnancy
  • Reducing one’s appearance of stretch marks, particularly after pregnancy

You may be considered a good candidate during your scheduled consultation if:

  • You are someone who would like to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy days
  • Have recently lost a significant amount of weight
  • Are in good general health
  • Are near your ideal weight or figure
  • Have realistic expectations for their results
  • Have excess skin or fat in the stomach region

DC Tummy Tuck Healing Process

The process for healing after your tummy tuck varies from patient to patient. Some patients tend to notice the results the next day. Most can return to regular activity after two or three weeks and exercise after you’re fully healed. Again, every patient’s recovery and healing process will be different/ If you have any questions, feel free to consult with your plastic surgeon.

Can I Get A Mommy Makeover and Tummy Tuck In DC?

Tummy tuck surgeries are often associated with mommy makeovers but can be done entirely separately. Mommy makeovers will differ for every patient and we suggest making a consultation with a plastic surgeon regarding your specific surgery plan.

Can I Get A DC Tummy Tuck For Weight Loss?

It’s important to remember that a tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program.

A tummy tuck is not suggested if your lifestyle and levels of activity will be fluctuating due to things such as substantial weight loss or if you are considering becoming pregnant. We do recommend that you wait for a tummy tuck if any of the above ring true. During your consultation, you can discuss with our doctors about your lifestyle and overall goals.

DC Tummy Tuck Testimonials

We interviewed a Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery patient who had a tummy tuck. She shared her experience with our practice and the procedure process.

We asked, “How was your overall experience?”

The patient replied:

“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.”
