Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery (Abdominoplasty) in Seattle
It is a complete myth that all candidates for any type of abdominal plastic surgery, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, are overweight. In fact, some of the best candidates for a tummy tuck are not overweight at all – they are just in need of a little contouring and shaping to help them look slimmer and sleeker again. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer tummy tuck plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) in Seattle, so that our patients have the benefit of gaining some of their self-confidence back.
As we age, the abdominal muscles weaken. This is not always due to age, but can also be due to a sizable weight loss, or after a pregnancy. These weakened muscles can give way to stretch marks, sagging skin, and other problems that sometimes simple exercise just can’t fix. A tummy tuck can easily fix these sorts of problems, and leave skin smooth, contoured, and shapely.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure, and does require anesthesia. While doctor and patient can confer to see what type of anesthesia is best, it is usually recommended that a patient undergo full anesthesia to be as comfortable as possible. We also offer twilight sedation in our offices, but full anesthesia is much more common.
As this is a surgical procedure, it also will recover a few weeks of recovery time. During your consultation with Dr. Zemplenyi, he will go over all aspects from the surgery, including computer-generated imagery of the outcome, recovery times, and what to expect.
