Tummy Tuck in Philadelphia
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is designed to remove excess fat and tissues located throughout the abdominal area. During the procedure, muscles throughout the abdominal region can often be tightened, as well. Tummy tuck surgery can be especially beneficial for patients who retain excess bulk in their mid-sections despite healthy diets and previous weight loss attempts, as well as for females who have undergone multiple pregnancies.
Your Individual Goals
Your tummy tuck procedure goals will be discussed realistically with Philadelphia Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Bucky. Together you will decide which procedures Dr. Bucky will perform to achieve your desired results. You will set a date for surgery and be given instructions about how to prepare.
Tummy Tuck Procedure Details
Dr. Bucky will perform one of two tummy tuck procedures: the full abdominoplasty or the partial abdominoplasty (mini-tummy tuck). If you only want to reduce the size of your lower belly, Dr. Bucky will make an incision along the lower waistline, removing excess fat and skin while tightening your abdominal muscles. For more dramatic results, Dr. Bucky will utilize the full abdominoplasty technique. Although this tummy tuck method is more extensive, it is considered to be more effective at reducing the size of your abdomen. Dr. Bucky often performs liposuction in conjunction with your tummy tuck. Your abdominoplasty will be performed under general anesthesia administered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Dr. Bucky works with a Board Certified operating team. Your tummy tuck procedure will have a rapid recovery rate with Dr. Bucky’s extensive post-operative care program. You will have access to a pre-operative vitamin regimen, personalized nursing, and a post-operative physical therapy and exercise protocol developed specifically for you, if desired.
