Tummy Tuck Q & A

What is a tummy tuck?

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a plastic surgery procedure to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen. At Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Tamburrino helps many men and women in South Jersey and the greater Philadelphia area achieve a flat and toned abdomen with a tummy tuck.

Why should I consider a tummy tuck?

The lower abdomen is one of the most common problem areas for loose, flabby skin and fat to accumulate. When you lose weight from dieting and working out, it’s common to be left with cosmetic issues such as:

  • Excess, loose skin that may sag
  • Stubborn fat deposits that don’t go away
  • Extra skin around the belly button
  • Poor skin elasticity
  • Weakness in the lower abdominal wall
  • Stretch marks in the lower abdomen

No matter how hard you work in the gym, many of these problems never go away without plastic surgery. Dr. Tamburrino believes that when you work hard to lose weight, you deserve to see the body of your dreams in the mirror. That’s why he offers tummy tuck procedures to help you achieve your desired figure.

Many women choose to get a tummy tuck after childbirth. Tummy tucks, along with other procedures, such as breast augmentation and facial sculpting, are popular procedures to include in a mommy makeover.

What should I expect from a tummy tuck procedure?

First, Dr. Tamburrino attentively listens to you discuss your particular concerns and desired outcome during a consultation. You can expect to spend over an hour at your personal consultation.

Then, he creates a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your ideal body. If you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck, Dr. Tamburrino may recommend additional procedures, such as liposuction, to complement your body-contouring transformation.

Dr. Tamburrino performs tummy tuck procedures in his office or at a local hospital. These procedures typically take about three hours and involve a recovery period of about six weeks.

Most of Dr. Tamburrino’s tummy tuck patients say they wish they had scheduled an appointment sooner. Don’t hesitate to call Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery or book an appointment online.
