Tummy Tuck in Nashville, TN
Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers tummy tucks to patients in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville and surrounding areas.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
Every woman dreams of looking sexy in a bikini or having a tiny waist. Unfortunately for some women, no matter how much they diet and exercise, they cannot seem to get rid of belly fat. Pregnancy can also cause a woman to store fat in the stomach and around the waistline. If you have struggled to reduce your waistline and eliminate fat from your abdominal region to no avail, you may want to consider getting a tummy tuck.
During a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, excess skin and fat deposits in the abdomen are removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened. The result of a tummy tuck in TN is a flatter stomach and more defined abdominal muscles. Nashville Tummy tucks are also useful for improving stomach contour after a pregnancy.
How are Tummy Tucks Performed in Nashville?
Tennessee Tummy tucks can provide some of the most dramatic results in our field. Excessive skin and fat, as well as abdominal wall weakness, are all addressed with this procedure.
The procedure can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours, depending on how much fat/skin needs to be removed and the look you wish to achieve. It takes place under general anesthesia and requires an overnight stay. The surgeon will make an incision from hip to hip along the bikini line. The skin is separated from the abdominal wall and the rectus muscles are tightened and stitched into a new position, effectively reducing the waistline. After the muscles are tightened, excess skin is stretched and removed.
During your consultation, you will learn about your Nashville tummy tuck, Brentwood tummy tuck and Hendersonville tummy tuck options and receive an individualized treatment plan.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck in Nashville?
If you are experiencing any of the following problems, abdominoplasty may be beneficial to you:
|•||You have difficulty getting rid of fat in the abdominal area, even with diet and exercise|
|•||You have excess skin due to weight loss|
|•||The skin around your stomach has lost its elasticity due to pregnancy|
|•||Your abdominal muscles are loose (diastases) due to pregnancy|
|•||You have an excessive amount of fat in your abdomen or around your waistline|
If you’re still wondering whether a Tennessee tummy tuck is right for you, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mike Hueneke is available for a one-one-one consultation to answer any questions and ease any concerns.
What Kind of Post-Operative Tummy Tuck Care Can I Expect?
Most tummy tuck patients in Nashville, Brentwood and Hendersonville will spend one night in the hospital. Drain tubes are left in place for a few days. You might experience some pain, swelling, and/or discomfort, but can expect to be up and around in one week. Usually 10 to 14 days are required to be off work and recovery is near complete by one month.
Like any body contouring procedure, a tummy tuck should not be used as a substitute for weight loss. A tummy tuck should only be sought if diet and exercise were unsuccessful. Furthermore, a Nashville tummy tuck, Brentwood tummy tuck or Hendersonville tummy tuck will not keep the weight off permanently. If you continue to eat a poor diet, do not exercise, or get pregnant again, you can gain weight and your stomach could expand.
