A tummy tuck in Southlake Texas, or abdominoplasty, is a major surgical procedure that eliminates excess skin and loose tissue from the stomach and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. Many individuals find that even with rigorous diet and exercise, they cannot get rid of the extra skin and often the protrusion of the stomach. This is common in women with children.
A tummy tuck in Southlake Texas is ideally for men or women with abdominal fat or loose skin around their stomach and those who are in good overall general health. It also ideal for women who no longer wish to have further pregnancies.
What it Treats

Approximately 3 hour
Performed under general anesthesia.

Will it hurt? Will I be in pain?
Before a tummy tuck in Southlake Texas, a trained anesthesiologist will confirm the patient is unconscious to ensure safety and comfortability throughout the procedure. Patients are unable to feel any pain during the surgery. After the procedure, a compression bandage may be applied to the incisions to minimize swelling and discomfort. Although, during the following week, the patient’s abdomen may feel sore as the muscles are tightening.
Walking may be difficult the first few days, and the stomach will feel swollen. A compression garment is worn for six weeks, but people can usually return to a desk job after approximately a week. We encourage light physical activity, such as walking, after a week. Patients are restricted from full physical exercise such as aerobics, running, or weightlifting for at least six weeks. During the healing process, the scars may appear to worsen for 3-6 months, but they usually begin fading after 9-12 months with the help of scar cream and time.
