WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK?
As the summer rolls around each year, do you dread having to be seen in a bathing suit because of your protruding belly? Does your stomach make you feel old and unattractive? Do you spend countless hours at the gym exercising, but still find that genetics prohibits you from achieving the sleek, sculpted contours that you desire?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, Dr. Emer and his trusted team of plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills may be able to help you shift your entire paradigm. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure to tighten the six-pack muscles in the abdominal wall, which often soften and separate after pregnancy. A tummy tuck can be performed in combination with hi definition liposuction and other companion treatments for optimal results.
Candidates for this procedure consist of women who have had children or individuals who have experienced extreme weight loss and were left with excess skin. During the evaluation, we will discuss your needs and identify the best abdominoplasty technique for you.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A BEVERLY HILLS TUMMY TUCK WITH DR. EMER?
- Tight, toned stomach
- A better fit in swimwear and tight clothing
- Increased self-confidence
- Reduction in unwanted, stubborn fat
- Restoration of six-pack muscles
- A more youthful aesthetic overall
WHO MAKES THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR A TUMMY TUCK?
Surgery should only be performed on patients who are in optimal physical and emotional health, and who do not suffer from any major medical conditions such as hypertension. Clients should be non-smokers with a positive and realistic outlook for their results. While a tummy tuck can help remove stubborn fat from the mid-body, it’s important to understand that it is not a weight loss procedure. You should be at a stable, healthy weight in order to undergo a tummy tuck. If you are a woman who is planning to have children, you may want to consider postponing your treatment until after you have finished giving birth.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY RECOVERY?
It will typically take 4-6 weeks to recovery from a tummy tuck, depending on your personal healing abilities. You will be fitted with a compression garment that can help mitigate your swelling and maintain your new, more attractive shape. Dr. Emer will ensure you are kept comfortable with pain medications, as well as detailed aftercare instructions on bathing, taking care of your wounds, sleeping, sitting and lying down. You will be scheduled for frequent follow up visits to ensure your recovery stays on track.
