Tummy Tuck

If there is one universal truth, it’s that all people would like to have a flat stomach. Unfortunately, once the muscles and skin in the abdomen have been stretched to a certain degree, they can’t return to their previous degree of tautness. No matter how many crunches you do, no matter how much kale you eat, you can’t get the abdomen to tighten back up. But don’t lose hope — a tummy tuck with Dr. Aydin can do it! A tummy tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess skin and fat and can help tighten and restore separated muscles, usually after a significant weight loss from significant weight gain.
Who Should Get a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck can be a great option for people who have gained and then lost a good deal of weight. However, a tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure. For this reason, Dr. Aydin prefers his patients considering a tummy tuck to be within 10% of their ideal weight.
What is the Procedure?

A full tummy tuck involves two incisions. The first is made from hipbone to hipbone, usually under the bikini line. The second incision is at the navel. These incisions provide access to the underlying abdominal muscles, which have become weak and separated. These muscles are pulled together and stitched into place to create a firmer abdomen and narrower waist. The skin is then stretched downward over the newly tightened muscles, excess skin is trimmed, and the navel is reattached. Candidates should be in relatively good health and must have quit smoking for at least 4 weeks before surgery.

For patients who still have good muscle tone, a mini tummy tuck could be an option. In a mini tuck, only a single incision is made down around the pubic area. Muscles are not usually addressed in a mini tuck, just loose skin, which is pulled down and the excess is trimmed off. A mini tummy tuck can also be a good option for older patients whose abdominal skin has simply become looser due to aging.

How Long is the Procedure?

3-4 hours under general anesthesia

What is the Recovery Like?

Since a tummy tuck procedure involves the underlying muscles, recovery isn’t easy. You will wear compression garments to keep the swelling down and to help your body conform to its new contours. Still, there will be pain and swelling for the first few days, followed by residual soreness for weeks, possibly months. Recovery time ranges from a few weeks to a few months. Lifting objects and any strenuous activity will have to wait at least six weeks, and you’ll need to take up to one month off of work. 

What is the Recovery Time?

4-6 weeks

What is the Price?

Tummy tucks with Dr. Aydin start at $11,500. We also offer payment plans and financing options to make paying for your procedure as easy as possible.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Candidates for a Tummy Tuck

A fleur-de-lis pattern refers to a popular highly-specialized abdominoplasty technique,  performed mainly on both male and female patients following substantial weight loss and gastric bypass surgery procedures. Commonly, these patients will have lost over 100 pounds or more who present with massive skin excess of the tummy region. 

Why the "Fleur-de-lis" Technique?

The main goal of the fleur-de-lis technique is to significantly remove both horizontal and vertical excess skin, narrowing the waistline to provide the absolute best result and appearance for the patient.  This technique removes skin both horizontally and vertically, creating two separate scars: one horizontal scar across the lower abdomen and one vertical scar along the midline, resulting with the final scar in an upside down “T" shape.

Traditional VS "Fleur-de-lis"

The fleur-de-lis technique provides several advantages compared to a traditional tummy tuck, which include the use on patients with pre-existing midline abdominal scars from previous surgery. These patients may experience an interruption of the blood supply to the adjacent skin, and so the fleur-de-lis technique will safely remove excess skin that could otherwise be subject to skin ischemia or necrosis if traditional tummy tuck techniques are used. 

Additionally,  it's common  for post-bariatric patients to present with additional skin and soft tissue redundancy to the flanks, back, and buttocks.  In such cases, the fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty technique (either with or without liposuction)  is designed to extend the scar around the body, removing a complete block of tissue in a 360-degree manner.


What's the difference?

A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess fat, skin, and tissue.

On the other hand, a panniculectomy is performed to remove a "pannus", which is a large flap of skin  distended over the abdomen, genitals, and thighs following significant weight loss or complications from childbirth. A panniculectomy solely addresses the issues of loose, sagging skin and excess fat of the pannus. It also addresses the mobility issues experienced by those who live with this condition and experience  uncomfortable rubbing and and chafing,  which can sometimes lead to infection.

Tummy Tuck or Panniculectomy?

A tummy tuck ("abdominoplasty") takes one step further than a panniculectomy by repairing layers of abdominal muscle, which may be loose, stretched, or split. Tummy tucks allow further contouring the body to achieve a more sleek and slender figure. Therefore, a tummy tuck is a more extensive procedure compared to a panniculectomy, since it also addresses the muscles to create a slimmer and more toned appearance to contour the abdomen.
