What Is a Tummy Tuck?

Dr. Joseph M. Perlman offers tummy tucks to people residing in Spring, TX. A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical operation that removes unwanted fat and skin from the abdomen area. It also repairs the weakened or separated muscles to provide a smoother and firmer tummy.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

The first step to a tummy tuck is administering anesthesia to patients. The most common anesthesia options are general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Then the incision takes place, and the shape and length depend on the amount of improvement needed. A full tummy tuck involves a horizontal incision between the navel and pubic hairline. Through the incision, the surgeon removes the excess fat, tissue, and skin as well as repairs the abdominal muscles. The skin incisions are then closed using various methods, such as sutures, tapes, clips, or adhesives.
