Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery (Abdominoplasty) in Lynnwood
One of the most common reasons a person may consider plastic surgery procedures is the desire to be a little slimmer and trimmer. Contrary to popular belief, most plastic surgery procedures that remove or reduce the look of fat are not for those who are extremely overweight or obese. Procedures such as a tummy tuck are best for those who are just slightly overweight, or have sagging abdominal muscles due to a large amount of weight already lost, or postpartum women. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer tummy tuck plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) in Lynnwood so that all of our patients can look and feel their best.
A tummy tuck procedure actually contours and flattens the tummy, so patients with just a little extra weight who are in search of contouring and toning are the best candidates. A tummy tuck is also a good choice to get rid of stretch marks. Those who have recently already lost a lot of weight may also want to consider a tummy tuck, as exercise alone may not help to tone that sagging skin. This type of procedure is not an alternative to weight loss, but is meant for those already on the road to living a healthier lifestyle.
As with any other surgical procedure, a tummy tuck procedure does require some recovery time, and for most patients this is just several weeks. Dr. Zemplenyi will go over the procedure and what to expect well before the day of surgery, so patients know what will happen and what they will look like afterward. Full anesthesia is recommended for an abdominoplasty, however some patients do elect to have twilight sedation. Both types are available in our offices.
