How is a tummy tuck performed in Ventura?
During tummy tuck surgery, the laxity in the abdominal wall can be corrected by tightening the muscles of the stomach region with a technique called facial plication. Excess skin and fat can be directly removed via an incision in the lower abdominal region, at the bikini line. Dr. Pickart will place the incision in a discreet area to create the most inconspicuous scar possible.
During the surgery, additional fat can be removed by using liposuction, which can allow for a more detailed re-contouring of the abdomen and flank regions. A tummy tuck procedure takes approximately three to five hours.
What can I expect after a tummy tuck in Ventura?
Most tummy tuck patients feel discomfort at the incision site for approximately five to seven days. This can be counteracted with a prescribed oral pain reliever. You can expect to return to work after one to two weeks, and return to your normal exercise routine after six to eight weeks. It is important to attend all follow-up visits for proper recovery.
