What Is A Tummy Tuck?

Many men and women work hard to lose weight but are plagued by stubborn fat deposits on the abdomen. Others are able to lose weight, but loose skin remains even after abdominal weight has been shed, preventing the smooth appearance they desire. If you are lacking skin elasticity or wish to remove unsightly fat deposits, John F. Burnett, MD offers a specialized procedure known as abdominoplasty. This procedure, also known as a tummy tuck, creates a flat, slender abdomen by surgically removing fat and excess skin. With Dr. John F. Burnett's considerable expertise, our team can help you experience a toned and attractive midsection. Reach out to our Fresno, CA office to schedule a consultation.

How Do We Perform A Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Burnett will make incisions along the lower abdomen or around the navel, depending on the quantity and location of tissue to be removed. This will be discussed during your personal consultation, and the technique will be customized based on your goals, weight, and natural body type. After making an incision, Dr. Burnett will remove excess fat by liposuction, remove excess skin, and stretch abdominal muscles and other tissues to create a more taut appearance. If necessary, the procedure may involve cutting a new aperture for the belly button as skin is stretched and repositioned. Once the procedure is complete, recovery times may vary, but you'll be provided with antibiotics and details on how to manage your recovery. Many patients take up to a month off from work, as this procedure is relatively involved. It can take several months for swelling to fade completely, and some scarring may persist, although scars do fade over time.
