About Tummy Tuck Surgery
A full tummy tuck can reshape the entire abdominal wall to give you a contoured and sculpted appearance. It is typically performed under general anesthesia and involves making a large incision from each hip bone so the doctor can gain access to the area. Dr. Foley will lift the skin and repair any weak abdominal muscles. He can then remove excess skin around the abdomen and pull down the skin to tighten the area before repositioning the belly button. Incisions are closed with sutures, skin adhesives, tapes, or clips.
Dr. Foley highly recommends and performs the high lateral tension tummy tuck for many of his patients. It is a more thorough surgery which provides a beautiful abdominal shape upon completion. Some patients who only need more minor repair will be able to achieve similar results with a mini-tummy tuck. Additional information regarding differences in tummy tuck procedures and general patient satisfaction ratings with them may be found on https://www.realself.com/Tummy-tuck/reviews.
You will see a significant difference after the swelling and bruising have subsided. Tummy tuck patients may need to wear a binder and compression garments for several weeks after surgery to ensure proper healing.
The results of tummy tuck surgery are permanent but you may experience changes in body contours if you gain weight or have children. Those who are planning to lose more weight or have children are advised to postpone tummy tuck surgery.
What will a tummy tuck cost?
A full tummy tuck involving the high lateral tension surgery has a total approximate cost of $7400. A mini-tummy tuck total approximate cost is $3100. Prices may vary slightly for patients based upon your needs. After your consultation with Dr. Foley, you will receive a personalized quote.
