Tummy Tuck in Conroe, TX

Dr. Joseph M. Perlman is pleased to offer tummy tuck to the residents of Conroe, TX.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an operation where unwanted skin and fat are surgically removed from the patient’s abdomen. It’s usually performed on a patient who can’t lose the fat through either diet or exercise.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

After the patient is put under general anesthesia, the plastic surgeon makes a horizontal incision between the hairline around the pubic area and the patient’s navel. The surgeon uses this incision to remove the unwanted fat and other tissue while suturing and strengthening the abdominal muscles. After that, the surgical wound is closed with either sutures, skin glue, clips, or tape. Patients can expect a full recovery in about 10 weeks.
