A Tummy Tuck procedure is one of the more common cosmetic procedures for the body
A full tummy tuck addresses three basic components within your abdomen: the skin, fat, and muscle. The most notable fact is that the muscles are tightened, which benefits patients who want a stomach as flat as possible. Results with Dr. Blinski, especially when combined with procedures like Liposuction, are dramatic.
Unlike many doctors performing Tummy Tucks, who are actually General Practioners with a weekend seminar teaching them that single procedure, Dr. Blinski is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. His understanding of every aspect and nuance of all cosmetic procedures, including the Tummy Tuck, is comprehensive. Wouldn’t you have better peace of mind knowing that the surgeon performing your Tummy Tuck had a comprehensive education and certification credentials?
And since he is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, as well as a widely recognized expert on cosmetic procedures, Dr. Blinski has a comprehensive understanding of every nuance of other cosmetic procedures outside of the Tummy Tuck, such as Liposuction, Labioplasty, or Thigh Lift. Dr. Blinski is also experienced in other types of cosmetic surgeries, such as Rhinoplasty or Breast Augmentation. When you are with Dr. Blinski, you can be confident that he will choose the procedure best suited for your particular situation.
What Is a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty, or a Tummy Tuck, is a procedure aimed at tightening your stomach area, as well as making loose or wrinkled skin vanish. Stretch marks located between the pubic area and belly button are eliminated, while fat tissue located in the abdomen gets removed. Wall muscles in the abdomen are tightened such that the abdomen doesn’t stick out, even when bending over or sitting down.
How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
In the Tummy Tuck procedure, Dr. Blinski cuts the skin between the navel and top of the pubic area. The incision is made below your panty line. The muscles from the pubic bone to the ribs are then tightened. The navel stays in place. The skin above the navel is then stretched down to the pubic area and stitched in place. Finally, the navel is brought out to its original position. Minor liposuction is performed, fine tuning the newly shaped abdomen area.
What Happens After Surgery?
Tummy Tucks are a more complex than normal procedure, so patients should plan to be out of work for 3 weeks. However, some patients can resume their work functions on a limited basis after 2 weeks.
