A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes loose skin and fat from the lower abdomen. I usually try to make the incision 5 cm above the clitoris so that it is concealed with most bathing suits. Sometimes I will make the incision along a naturally occurring skin fold for better cosmetic results.The incision goes down to the fascia but does not enter the abdominal cavity, making this a very safe procedure. The skin is then carefully lifted off the abdomen up to the rib cage. I then place sutures to tighten the rectus muscles to give a tighter hourglass look. Once I wash the area with antibiotic solution, I pull the skin down and remove the excess skin. Care is taken to make the incision long enough to remove all redundant skin so there are no folds or "dog ears" on the sides of the abdomen. I than reshape the belly button and close the skin in layers for maximum support and for minimizing the scar. The incision is covered with a sterilebandage and after about one hour, the patient is sent home with family to begin the recovery process. Patients can start eating right away and are encouraged to walk and stay hydrated. I see patients the next day to check the incision and make sure they understand post op care instructions. Patients are given our cell phone numbers to call 24 hours a day. We encourage our patients from Phoenix, California, Mexico or other areas to stay in one of the many hotels in the area for at least one night. Out of town patients having a tummy tuck receive a complimentary two night stay in a nearby hotel.
