Tummy Tuck

Looking to flatten your tummy and narrow your waistline?  A tummy tuck (also known as an abdominoplasty) may be right for you.  The aging process creates changes to the abdomen in both women and men (such as increased laxity of the abdominal skin and stretched abdominal muscles).  Some individuals, such as females after pregnancy, are especially prone to these changes.  The extreme physiologic changes experienced from pregnancy can leave women with a figure that feels and looks very different from pre-pregnancy.

While diet and exercise assist in weight loss, many patients discover that neither improves the loss of skin elasticity and the presence of stretch marks nor the separation of the abdominal muscles. No matter how strong the “six-pack” muscles become, a bulge will be present where the muscles are separated.  Moreover, a scar from a cesarian section (c-section) can accentuate this bulge.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideal candidates for abdominoplasty include men and women who want to remove excess abdominal skin and fat. These cosmetic concerns may be caused by the following factors:

  • Weight fluctuations
  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Genetics

Tummy tuck surgery is not a weight loss procedure and should not be performed on people who are significantly overweight. While the surgery does remove localized fat from the abdomen, it is a body contouring procedure. This means that your shape will be slimmer, and your clothes will probably fit you better, but the surgery will not result in significant weight loss.

There are two main types of abdominoplasty: partial abdominoplasty (“mini-tummy tuck”) and complete abdominoplasty. Some patients initially want to undergo a mini-tummy tuck simply to avoid having a longer scar. This may not be possible based on your degree of abdominal sagging and fat deposits.

True candidates for partial abdominoplasty are those rare individuals who only require surgery of the area below the navel. The procedure is not offered simply as a less-invasive alternative to complete abdominoplasty. Most patients are best treated with the complete abdominoplasty.

Tummy tuck surgery can remove localized fat from the abdomen and excise drooping skin. It can also repair abdominal muscles that have separated due to pregnancy or other factors. It restores a more youthful and fit appearance to the abdomen.

Abdominoplasty typically begins with liposuction to reduce localized fat deposits. Then, a hip-to-hip incision is made across the lower abdomen, passing above the pubic area. This incision allows the abdominal apron to be pulled up, so the surgeon can access deeper tissues. Once the abdominal apron is lifted the surgeon can tighten separated abdominal muscles with stitches. Excess skin is excised, and fat deposits are removed, and then the incision is sutured back together. The belly button is brought out through a new opening in its original position, resulting in a scar around it.

The overall recovery process from tummy tuck surgery usually lasts six to eight weeks. For the first week you will experience moderate discomfort and a feeling of tightness in your abdomen. You will be required to wear a post-surgical compression garment for the first four weeks. This helps control swelling and fluid retention in the weeks following your surgery. It also helps your abdomen take on its newly sculpted shape.

Most patients return to work and regular daily activities within three to four weeks. Exercise and vigorous physical activity will need to be avoided for eight weeks to allow the repaired muscles to heal.

Dr. Cone and his staff were amazing. They took such good care of me and my daughter like family. Highly recommend for adult and kids! Esther Cheung-Phillips
These guys are awesome! The personal care given by Dr. Langevin is absolutely second to none. You will feel like the only patient there Skeeter Ham
From beginning to end Dr. Langevin and his staff took care of me in the most excellent way. From scheduling all the way to post op, they never made me feel like a number but a human that was in good hands. I really appreciated the personal call from Dr. Langevin- not from his staff but from him. That is rare these days to have doctors call you themselves to check on you after surgery. I couldn't be more happy with my results. Aguerra Love
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cone at Wellspring. Their entire staff is incredibly kind and obviously care about their patients. Crystal was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. They did a removal of a large facial nevus for me and I am so happy with the results! The entire thing has been truly lifechanging for me. I am very grateful for Dr. Cone & his team and look forward to seeing them when I go for my follow-up visit. Kaylie Peterman
My experience so far has been amazing, even though my anxiety is over the roof when it comes to Dr's. Dr.Cone and his staff have been awesome and make me feel as comfortable as they can. I got otoplasty done and I can't wait for the final results, I do definitely recommend this place for anything else you'd like to get done. I do plan on getting other things done in the Future and without a doubt this is the place! Thank you Dr.Cone, Crystal, Brandi, & Cici you all are the best! Dori Dori
