Tummy Tuck in Lake Charles, LA

A tummy tuck in Lake Charles, LA will result in a slimmer, well-toned tummy that aligns with the patient’s own body type and weight.

What is a tummy tuck?

Among those procedures are “tummy tucks,” also known as abdominoplasty. The benefits are improved emotional and physical health. Excess skin and fat is often due to weight loss, pregnancy, aging, and it may be an inherited condition. When diet and exercise fail to tighten the abdomen, it is time to consider a tummy tuck.

How are tummy tucks performed?

The procedure involves the removal of unsightly excess skin and fat. Weak and distended muscles are restored to normal creating a fitter stomach profile. With a complete tummy tuck, a major surgical procedure, our experienced plastic surgeons open the area between the hips.

Excess fat is removed as needed. Then, muscle and tissue is contoured. Excess skin is removed during the procedure. Partial tummy tucks are less involved and may be limited in scope. Our surgeons, during the consultation, will explain all facets of a procedure tailored to your needs.

A tummy tuck is performed with general anesthesia. As the anesthesia wears off, you will probably feel tired, groggy, and nauseous. While most patients return home the same day, you will need someone to drive you.
