Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, can improve the definition, firmness, and contour of the abdomen. Many people are unable to achieve a flat tummy with traditional dieting and exercise. Weight fluctuations, pregnancy, aging, and genetics may work against you, leaving persistent localized fat, loose skin, and weak muscles in the abdominal area. Tummy tuck surgery creates a leaner, firmer, and smoother abdominal contour by tightening the abdominal muscles, trimming away stretched skin, and removing excess fat.

Who Can Benefit From Tummy Tuck Surgery?

What Do You Desire?

A flat, firm tummy is a sign of youthful attractiveness. Factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, aging, and genetics eliminate or prevent a flat and firm waistline for many adults. Often, this causes self-confidence and self-image issues along with discouragement because exercise and dieting are often futile in the attempt to reclaim a youthful figure. Abdominoplasty can restore a flat, firm tummy by addressing issues such as loose skin, weak muscles, and localized fat so that you can look and feel more youthful and confident.
Excess, loose skin in the abdominal area may be caused by weight loss, pregnancy, aging, or a combination of these factors. Lost skin elasticity cannot typically be restored through exercise. Additionally, stretch marks can mar the appearance of your abdomen. Both stretch marks and loose abdominal skin can limit your clothing options and make you feel uncomfortable with your appearance. Tummy tuck surgery can trim away loose skin and eliminate stretch marks from the lower abdomen so that the abdomen appears more youthful, attractive, and smooth.
Pregnancy and weight loss are the primary causes of loose abdominal muscles and diastasis recti. Diastasis recti is when the muscles of the stomach wall become separated, causing the abdomen to protrude. The resulting stomach pooch may cause you to look pregnant or overweight simply after eating a meal. Tummy tuck surgery tightens the muscular structure so that the abdomen no longer protrudes and the waist is firm and toned.
Despite healthy dieting, regular cardiovascular exercise, and fat-burning routines, localized fat may persist in your lower belly. Even if you are incredibly fit everywhere else, stubborn abdominal fat can make you look and feel overweight. The removal of unwanted fat from the abdomen creates a youthful and narrow waistline that can highlight your figure in an attractive way.


Tummy tuck patients are admitted to the hospital for 48 to 72 hours after surgery. Once you return home, you should follow the list of post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Ashoor. These instructions will help you have the most successful healing experience and will include guidelines regarding your diet, medications, bathing, wound and dressing care, managing drains, and the like. You should wear your pressure garment as instructed to reduce swelling and improve your results. Limit your physical activities for four to six weeks, and limit all sports and athletic activities for at least six weeks. Swelling will take eight weeks to subside. Once your recovery period has passed and you are feeling better, you can look forward to enjoying long-lasting results.
Dr. Ashoor uses a bikini incision to perform abdominoplasty. This incision is so named because the resulting scar is hidden beneath the bikini line. Scarring after tummy tuck surgery is unpredictable but will be inconspicuous most of the time and can be covered by most clothing. Your skin type plays a major role in determining the quality of your scar, but all scars are likely to fade over time.
The cost of tummy tuck surgery is influenced by factors such as hospital fees, physician’s fees, and anesthesia fees. At your consultation, you will be given more details on what your tummy tuck surgery will cost.
After your tummy tuck procedure, you may experience some pain and discomfort. Prescription pain medications will help keep you comfortable during your recovery. As your body heals, your discomfort will diminish, and all soreness and tenderness related to your surgery should dissipate after several weeks.
