Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery (Abdominoplasty) in Olympia
One of the most common types of plastic surgery, a tummy tuck can improve a patient’s self-confidence by helping them look slimmer and trimmer. A misconception about tummy tuck surgery is that it is weight loss surgery – it is not. The best candidates for a tummy tuck procedure are only slightly overweight, and just need some contouring and sculpting. Patients who are extremely overweight or obese are recommended to have actual weight loss surgery. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer tummy tuck plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) in Olympia to our patients so they can feel slimmer and trimmer.
The best candidates for tummy tuck procedures often have already lost a large amount of weight, whether naturally or through surgery. Anyone with weakened abdominal muscles or sagging skin is an excellent candidate for an abdominoplasty. Postpartum women and women with stretch marks have also found tummy tuck surgery especially useful. It is not an alternative to weight loss, but can be a jump stat to those who want to begin a healthier lifestyle with a good diet and exercise regimen.
As with any type of surgery, there is some recovery time involved, and for most this is usually no more than a few weeks. Dr. Zemplenyi will go over all aspects of the surgery during a consultation appointment, so patients can always know what to expect. We do recommend full anesthesia for this procedure, but some patients have opted for twilight sedation instead. We do offer both here at the Bel-Red offices.
