Bellevue Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery (Abdominoplasty)
A part of the body that concerns both men and women as they age is the abdomen, or stomach. It is a great misconception that plastic surgery procedures are for the obese and overweight. A procedure such as a tummy tuck can help a person’s stomach become more contoured and flat, and this type of surgery is actually not recommended for those who are overweight. As we age, the skin can sag in the abdomen area, but there are other contributing factors as well. Those who may have lost a great deal of weight may be dealing with issues of sagging skin, and postpartum mothers may have saggy skin in addition to stretch marks. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer tummy tuck plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) in Bellevue, so that all of our patients can look and feel their best.
A tummy tuck is actually a tightening and flattening of the abdominal area, and good candidates for this surgery are typically people who are carrying just a few excess pounds. A tummy tuck can help contour and flatten the stomach where exercise cannot, and this is often a good choice for those who have not benefited from liposuction.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure, and it does require some recovery time. During a consultation with Dr. Zemplenyi, he will carefully go over all aspects of the surgery, including what to expect, recovery time, and he can even provide computer-generated images so patients can see what they will look like afterward. This procedure does require anesthesia, and full anesthesia is typically recommended over twilight sedation.
