Get a Flatter Stomach with a Tummy Tuck

A flat stomach is something that everyone desires. Unfortunately, while diet and exercise can help to reduce fat in the area, they don’t help with drooping, extra skin, or muscles that are no longer firm. A tummy tuck, sometimes called abdominoplasty, can help you achieve a more contoured body shape and flatter stomach. A tummy tuck eliminates extra fat and skin while also restoring damaged or divided muscles, resulting in a smoother, flatter, and firmer abdominal profile. Tummy Tuck Surgery is a procedure that is used to remove excess skin from the abdomen. Make an appointment with Dr. Krieger now if you’re interested in a tummy tuck surgery in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, or the surrounding areas!

Dr. Krieger will do a full or minor tummy tuck depending on the amount of extra skin and its placement.

A full tummy tuck involves making a horizontal incision between the pubic hairline and the belly button. The amount of extra skin determines the shape and length of the incision. To remove extra skin in the upper abdomen, a second incision around the navel may be required in some situations. The upper abdomen skin is pushed down and the surplus skin is cut away after the incision(s) are created. The underlying weaker abdominal muscles are tightened as the skin is elevated. It’s possible that the belly button will need to be moved.

Recovery after a Tummy Tuck

After your abdominoplasty, you will experience pain and swelling for a few days, and there will be some lingering soreness for weeks, if not months. You may need to take up to a month off work, and you’ll have to wait six weeks before engaging in any vigorous activities. Dr. Krieger will provide you with specific guidance on how to proceed with your recuperation.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Tummy Tuck?

As long as you maintain a healthy weight and exercise program, your tummy tuck from Dr. Krieger will look wonderful for decades.
Weight gain can nullify the benefits of surgery.

Who Is a Good Tummy Tuck Candidate?

Skin is elastic and resilient, but it has a limit beyond which it will not return to its original state if stretched too far. When the stomach is stretched by pregnancy or significant weight gain (and subsequent loss), sagging skin or a bulging stomach pouch can result. Tummy tuck surgery is beneficial to both men and women. A tummy tuck, on the other hand, is a body-contouring treatment, not a weight-loss strategy, and is only recommended for persons who are in good health and have a stable weight. Successful abdominoplasty candidates are generally in good health, with no major medical issues, as with any surgical operation. Women must be certain that they will not become pregnant and have another child, as this will nullify the belly tuck’s results.

What are the Potential Consequences of Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Dr. Krieger’s abdominoplasty is significant surgery, and it comes with all of the hazards that come with it: excessive bleeding, poor wound healing, anesthetic reaction, infection, keloid scar formation, and so on. Dr. Krieger, on the other hand, has a lot of experience with these operations, and they’ve proven to be quite safe and rewarding for our patients. Pulmonary issues and blood clots are the most serious and unusual dangers of abdominoplasty surgery, which can be avoided by employing leg compression devices, blood thinners, early ambulation, and breathing exercises. Patients who are more at risk are admitted to the hospital for observation and intensive early ambulation.

Is a Tummy Tuck Expensive?

There will be some discomfort following your belly tuck recovery. Dr. Krieger repositions and fixes underlying muscles and the abdominal skin through a large incision just above the pubic area (the size of the scar depends on how much loose skin is to be removed). After the core muscles are permanently stitched together, numbing medicine is administered directly into the fascia around the muscle, ensuring that patients are pain-free when they wake up. For the first few days of your rehabilitation, pain medication will be required. You may experience persistent soreness for weeks after your initial recuperation. You’ll need to be aware of your incision and try not to overwork it.

How Long Will the Abdominoplasty Results Last?

Dr. Krieger’s abdominoplasty can result in long-lasting results. In the center of your abdomen, he cuts superfluous skin and reconnects divided muscles.
Your figure will appear leaner and more defined. You’ll be happy with your tummy tuck for the rest of your life provided you maintain a healthy weight and exercise regularly. As you become older, you may notice some sagging, but it will be nothing like it was before your operation.

I believe I will have children or childrens’ children.
Is it possible for me to get a tummy tuck right now?

If a patient is considering abdominoplasty surgery, Dr. Krieger advises them to make sure they will not have any more children. This is because a new pregnancy will undo all of your tummy tuck’s improvements. You’ll acquire all of the localized weight that caused your sagging tummy in the first place. Furthermore, pressing your incisions can cause your scars to distort. This is not the time for a belly tuck if you’re thinking about having another child. If you become pregnant again or gain weight, slight adjustments may be required to get you back to the best potential result.

Can a Tummy Tuck be combined with other procedures?

A tummy tuck is a lengthy treatment with an extended recovery period. If you’re thinking about adding another operation to your tummy tuck, consider these factors.
Dr. Krieger may conduct mommy makeovers if you are a good candidate, which is essentially a name for a mix of procedures that treat the affects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding on your body. Dr. Krieger conducts a breast lift (with or without augmentation), a tummy tuck, and liposuction all in one surgical session during a mommy makeover. Admission to the hospital for 1-2 nights is required in combination situations.
