Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) In Salt Lake City

If you have had children or lost a significant amount of weight, you may be dealing with excess skin hanging off your belly. This happens because your skin has been stretched out over a period of time, whether due to pregnancy or weight gain. When the baby is born or the fat is lost, the skin remains in its stretched-out state. People will often spend hours trying out crazy workouts that claim to help tighten loose skin, but due to a loss of elasticity, there is really no diet or exercise that can help to effectively restore a firmer look and feel. A tummy tuck can help eliminate the bulge of excess skin to provide you with the smooth, flat belly that you want.

Is a Tummy Tuck Right For Me?

The majority of tummy tuck patients that we see at Envi Plastic Surgery are mothers who are looking to regain confidence and feel great about wearing a swimsuit again. We also see several people who have lost a significant amount of weight, but are left struggling with the burden of hanging skin.

It is a good idea for women considering a tummy tuck to be finished having kids. While you can still safely become pregnant after the procedure, having a baby can reverse the results of your tummy tuck.

One common misconception is that a tummy tuck works to remove excess fat. If this is what you’re looking for, you may actually be looking for liposuction. The tummy tuck is strictly for removing excess abdominal skin. However, a tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction in order to treat both problems.

How Does A Tummy Tuck Work?

In order to flatten your belly and achieve a taut appearance, the excess skin needs to be removed. During your consultation, we will take a look at your abdomen and determine the extent of surgery you will require. Some people may only need a mini tummy tuck while others will benefit more from the full procedure.

To remove the excess skin, a horizontal incision will be made below your belly button – just low enough so future scarring can be easily concealed beneath a bathing suit or a pair of underwear. One of our doctors will then repair the underlying abdominal wall, strengthening the muscles for a solid foundation and then carefully pull the skin to achieve a tight appearance, trimming away any excess skin and tissue left over.

Recovering From A Tummy Tuck

Recovery from your tummy tuck will take some time. Make sure that you are able to take a few weeks off from work, and take it easy at home. While you will notice an immediate flattening of your belly, some initial bruising and swelling will prevent you from seeing your final results. Yes, there will be a significant scar running across you in the beginning, but this will fade and flatten dramatically over time.

Within a few weeks, your abdomen will appear naturally tighter and any excess skin will be gone. The tummy tuck has proven to be a life-changing procedure, helping men and women to take back control of their bodies.
