Tummy Tuck

As with most surgeries procedure length varies on the patient and the extent of the procedure. Abdominoplasty takes about 3-4 hours to perform.

In a traditional tummy tuck an incision is made from hip-to-hip, leaving a sizable scar. Fortunately, most scars are placed below the underwear line. A second scar is placed around the belly button. By adding post-operative laser treatments to the incision sites, our doctors do everything possible to minimize the amount and size of the scar.

Our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Jared Mallalieu, will walk you through an abdominoplasty procedure in the below video. The results of this procedure are remarkable.

No. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia. People generally do very well after treatment and pain is minimal. Discomfort controls nicely with Tylenol or Motrin. The application of ice the evening after surgery helps to reduce swelling and pain.

Cosmetic surgery removes excess tissue to correct this condition. Laser treatment also works with cosmetic surgery to thicken collagen and to enhance healing of surgical incisions.

Patients may shower and wash their hair the first day after surgery. You may also return to exercise the next day. It is advised that you avoid sleeping on a flat surface immediately following surgery. Spend the first night slightly elevated to minimize swelling.

Incisions usually heal well, leaving only a faint white line. We see the patient after two weeks and apply laser treatment to the incision to further enhance the healing process.

The lower lids typically present with a “bag”. This represents a fat pocket which develops with age.
