Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery (Abdominoplasty) in Renton
A common type of plastic surgery, a tummy tuck is a procedure that can help flatten and contour the stomach. It is often mistaken with weight loss surgery, which is for those who are extremely overweight or obese. In fact, candidates for tummy tuck surgery usually are not very overweight at all – they may suffer from weakened abdominal muscles or sagging skin, and have a desire to look slimmer and trimmer. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer tummy tuck plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) in Renton to our patients so that they can look better, and regain some confidence.
Good candidates for tummy tuck procedures may already have lost a great deal of weight, whether it was through surgery or naturally. Losing a lot of weight can lead to weakened muscles and sagging skin. Postpartum mothers and women with stretch marks can also benefit from tummy tuck procedures, as it can eradicate stretch marks and help them get more contoured and sculpted, much quicker than a gym. A tummy tuck can be a jump start to living a healthier lifestyle, but it is not a replacement for weight loss surgery.
Like any other surgical procedure, there is several weeks of recovery time involved with a tummy tuck procedure. Dr. Zemplenyi can go through all the particulars of surgery and what to expect during a consultation visit. We do recommend full anesthesia with this type of surgery, however we also offer twilight sedation in the Bel-Red offices for those who prefer it.
