Tummy Tuck in Oak Brook
Helping You Achieve the Sculpted Figure You’re Looking For
Having an excess of fat and tissue around your abdomen can be frustrating and embarrassing. Often it will persist no matter how much diet and exercise you do, which can result in a lack of confidence that can affect all aspects of your life. With a tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, our Oak Brook plastic surgeons address the three layers of the abdomen – the muscles, fat, and skin – to help create a more toned and slender midsection. These procedures are frequently sought out by those with excess skin due to pregnancy or significant weight loss.
The best candidates for this procedure will have:
- Loose skin and tissue in the midsection
- Stretched abdominal muscles
- Stretch marks on the abdomen
- Stable body weight
- No intention of having more children
- No smoking habits
How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?
To smooth out your figure, excess skin below the belly button is removed and the remaining skin is stretched down to give you a smoother, more flattering appearance. Though the size of the incision will depend on how much skin is being removed, the scar will be hidden below the bikini line and fades over time if properly cared for.
Patients may return to normal daily activities after about two weeks, but more strenuous activity should be avoided for 5-6 weeks following surgery. Some results can be seen immediately after surgery, with the full final product evident after the swelling and bruising has subsided a few months later.
