Tummy Tuck in Nashville, TN
What is a Tummy Tuck?
When it comes to the “battle of the bulge,” the midsection is often a target for men and women. The abdominal area often collects fat before other areas of the body. Coupled with weakening abdominal muscles, this gives your stomach and flanks a rolled appearance rather than the chiseled, shapely look that you want.
Tummy tuck surgery may help. Drs. MaDan and Hueneke make an incision from one hip bone to the other to allow access to the muscles and tissues of the abdominal area. During the procedure, he may:
- Use sutures to tighten muscles
- Sculpt fat with liposuction
- Remove excess fat and skin
What is the Cost of a Tummy Tuck?
The average cost of a tummy tuck is $8,000 - $8,500, although this does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your tummy tuck at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
What Are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?
- Gives the abdomen a flatter appearance
- Tightens underlying muscles
- Improves body proportions and how clothing fits
What is the Recovery Time for a Tummy Tuck?
Your abdomen may be wrapped with a special bandage that keeps a slight amount of compression on the abdominal area. This helps to reduce swelling, hold the tissues in place, and shorten recovery. You will wear the bandage for up to six weeks. During this time, avoid any strenuous activities, including exercise.
Prepare to remain at home for a few days immediately after your surgery. Due to the limitations on your activities, we recommend that you arrange for someone to stay with you and help you eat, bathe, and perform other daily tasks.
