What is a Tummy Tuck?

For both women and men, sagging skin and excess fat on the stomach can feel frustrating to lose when you try to eat healthily and exercise. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging can impact your ability to attain a slimmer tummy. Achieving attractive results for patients, an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure that tightens the stomach area. In Tulsa, OK, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina personalizes your tummy tuck so you can attain your desired results. This cosmetic treatment at Tulsa Surgical Arts gives patients the opportunity to have a redefined physique and restored confidence.

Is A Tummy Tuck For You?

At Tulsa Surgical Arts, we can perform abdominoplasty on both men and women. If you struggle with sagging skin or stubborn pockets of fat on the stomach, a tummy tuck can help you look slimmer and more toned. Before undergoing this treatment, Dr. Cuzalina recommends being at a stable weight because it could impact your final results. It is important to realize that abdominoplasty is not a weight loss procedure; instead, it focuses on loose skin and tightening the muscles. We may incorporate liposuction to eliminate fat and to enhance your results. However, if your lower stomach has healthy skin tightness, but you still feel unhappy with the appearance of your tummy, you may be a better candidate for liposuction. For long-lasting results, women considering this treatment should be past pregnancy.

Surgical Technique

We perform tummy tuck surgery with general anesthesia. Before your procedure, Dr. Cuzalina will consider various incision techniques, which he tailors to meet your needs. To start, the incision size is determined based on the amount of excess skin. Some patients with an abundance of sagging skin may require a full tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck places the incision from hip to hip, just on top of the pubic area. Patients who have minimal skin laxity may only need a mini tummy tuck. These patients still benefit from skin tightening, but they have a smaller scar. Regardless of the technique, all tummy tuck procedures at Tulsa Surgical Arts involve body contouring and liposuction.

What to Expect

After completing your surgery, we will carefully monitor you and send you home in a compression garment to assist with swelling. Standing upright and walking may feel painful for a while so you should take it easy for a few days. Resuming normal movement becomes less painful once the abdominal muscles adjust and the incision heals. Most patients can resume their normal routines in around two weeks. Generally, workouts can restart in around eight weeks or when Dr. Cuzalina lets you know. The abdomen will feel sore and tight, but you will look and feel normal after recovering.

Tummy Tucks

Many factors can create a sagging stomach, which causes loose and wrinkled skin. We understand it can feel frustrating to try and reduce these problems with diet and exercise. A tummy tuck can help you attain your desired results. If you feel embarrassed by saggy skin on your abdomen, regardless of the severity, a tummy tuck with Dr. Cuzalina can help you get the body you want.
