Tummy Tuck in Alexandria, LA

Residents of Alexandria, La can utilize a variety of plastic surgery services provided by the Plastic Surgery Associates of Lafayette, La, including a tummy tuck.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Abdominoplasty, (tummy tuck) is a surgical procedure used to remove unwanted fat and loose flabby abdominal skin from a protruding belly, as well as strengthen weakened muscles of the abdominal wall.

 How is a tummy tuck procedure performed?

We begin the tummy tuck procedure by making a horizontal incision in the lower pubic area. The length of the incision is made from one hip to the other hip. The result from making the incision in this area allows under clothing or bathing suits to hide the incision scar.

From the abdominal wall, we lift the loose skin and tighten the “rectus” abdominal wall to strengthen and repair it. We then disconnect the belly button and tighten the thighs and the buttocks.

After removal of loose skin, the tightening of the abdominal walls, buttocks and thighs, we reattach the umbilicus (belly button). After a tummy tuck In Alexandria, LA, we use drains on either side of the abdominal incision to remove and prevent the buildup of fluid excess.

You should arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery, and to help you out for a day or two after you leave the hospital if needed.
You can reduce your risk of complications by closely following your surgeon’s instructions before and after the surgery, especially with regard to when and how you should resume physical activity.
