Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery (Abdominoplasty) in Kirkland
One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, a tummy tuck is often mistaken for being a procedure that is an alternative for weight loss. On the contrary, a tummy tuck is an ideal procedure for a person who has already lost a large amount of weight, or who has weakened abdominal muscles after delivering a baby. A tummy tuck can not get rid of a large amount of excess fat; instead, what it can do is contour and flatten the tummy for an overall slimmer look. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer tummy tuck plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) in Kirkland, so that all of our patients can look and feel their best.
The best candidates for a tummy tuck simply have a bit of extra weight, or sagging abdominal muscles due to age, weight loss, or postpartum. This type of procedure s actually a contouring, flattening procedure and is not an alternative for a proper diet or exercise regimen. It is for those already on the road to living more healthily, or it could be a jump start for others.
This surgical procedure does require a little bit of recovery time. For many patients, it is just several weeks. During a consultation with Dr. Zemplenyi, he will go over everything that a patient should expect with the surgery. We also recommend full anesthesia with a tummy tuck, but some patients do opt for twilight sedation. We offer both types of anesthesia in the Bel-Red offices.
