Tummy Tuck Atlanta
A "tummy tuck," or an abdominoplasty, flattens and firms your abdomen, enhancing your appearance and creating a smoother abdominal profile. This procedure is designed to tighten the abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen.
If you are dieting and exercising and you still haven’t achieved your ideal body image, a tummy tuck may be right for you. Often, excess skin and fat results in a bulge or a protrusion of the abdomen; however, a tummy tuck can help you address bulges that may occur from pregnancy, aging, weight fluctuations and more. Smaller areas of loose skin or bulges may only need a mini tummy tuck.
When you receive a tummy tuck, liposuction is sometimes performed at the same time to remove troublesome love handles and improve your waist line. Incisions are usually low on the body and can be hidden with most clothes after surgery.
Tummy tucks are outpatient procedures performed under general anesthesia. Many of our patients return to normal activity in one to two weeks and make a full recovery in four to six weeks.
