Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?in Rockford, IL

Tummy Tuck

You work hard to take care of your body. You eat the right kind of diet and you're active every day. You've managed to reach your ideal weight, but your stomach is a trouble spot. There is fat hanging on that will not go away, no matter what you do. Whether you've lost a considerable amount of weight, you have been pregnant or you just can't get that flat, tight stomach that you have always wanted, a tummy tuck could be the answer for you.
When to Consider Abdominoplasty
A tummy tuck is not a weight loss solution. If you need to lose excess pounds, you will have to find a diet and exercise plan that works for you rather than this surgery. This procedure is ideal if you are happy with the rest of your body, but you haven't managed to get the results you want with your stomach. It is recommended that you wait to have a tummy tuck procedure until you are done having children due to the fact that your body will go through changes every time that you are expecting a baby.
You should be in good health before undergoing any type of surgical procedure; if you have a chronic condition that could put you at risk, our surgeon is likely to advise against a tummy tuck. You should also not smoke as this can lead to complications. If you are prepared for surgery as well as the healing process to get a flat stomach, a tummy tuck is a good alternative for you.
What is Involved in the Procedure?
During a typical tummy tuck, excess skin will be removed. Excess fat may also be removed. Your muscles will be tightened. The flap of skin will be drawn down until it is tight. You will be sent home on the same day as your procedure. You will need to take care of yourself at home in order to heal properly. Pay attention to our advice about restrictions in what you can do. Once you have healed completely, you will be able to enjoy your new, flat stomach.
