About Abdominoplasty Surgery

For adult individuals, sagging skin and unwanted fat surrounding the abdominal region can be a source of frustration despite efforts to reduce it. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are the main reasons an individual may not succeed at trying to reclaim a slim and tight tummy. An abdominoplasty is a body contouring procedure that reshapes the abdominal region, producing youthful-looking outcomes for patients. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia performs tummy tuck surgery that is tailored based on the amount of excess skin and fat present. This cosmetic treatment at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery allows individuals the opportunity to have a slimmer, tighter tummy and restored confidence.

Ideal Candidates

Tummy tuck surgery can be successful for both women as well as men. If you are frustrated with sagging skin in addition to unwanted fat in the lower abdomen, this cosmetic surgery can help reclaim a slimming and more toned silhouette. Dr. Movagharnia suggests you be at a stable weight before undergoing this treatment. Tummy tuck surgery is not a procedure to help you lose weight — it reduces loose skin. A form of liposuction is usually incorporated during the procedure to eliminate fat. If your lower stomach has good skin tautness, but you still are not satisfied with the appearance of your midsection even though you have worked to lose weight, we may recommend liposuction. Women interested in abdominoplasty should be past childbearing to ensure the results are not affected.

Surgical Technique

Body contouring of the abdomen is performed with general anesthesia. There are various techniques to consider when this surgery is performed by Dr. Movagharnia, which is unique to the individual's specific goals. To start, the incision size is chosen based on the quantity of skin that should be excised. Some individuals with extensive lax skin might benefit best from an extended tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck makes the incision from hipbone to hipbone just on top of the pubic line. Some individuals with minimal skin looseness but still feel upset by their appearance may be better candidates for a mini tummy tuck. These individuals still benefit from skin tightening but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of the type, all abdominoplasty procedures at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery involve the excision of sagging skin and liposuction.

What to Expect

Following this procedure, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression device to reduce swelling. Walking upright will be a bit painful in the first few hours, so you should take it easy for a few days. Moving about becomes less painful once the tightness subsides and the incision heals. You can resume everyday functions in about two weeks. Workouts can begin around six weeks or earlier if you are given permission by Dr. Movagharnia. The abdominal area will feel tight and uncomfortable, but once healed you will look and feel normal again.
