How does tummy tuck surgery work?
- An incision is made between the hip bones, at about the level of pubic hair
- Separated muscles are reattached and tightened with stitches
- Excess fat, tissue and skin are also removed via liposuction
- Because tissue near the navel area may have been removed, the navel will also be repositioned
How long is a tummy tuck surgery?
The length of your tummy tuck procedure will depend on how much skin needs to be removed, but the surgery can take anywhere from one to five hours. After the procedure, you may be required to stay at an aftercare facility overnight, where you’ll be safely monitored by the Soma Care Team before being discharged.
Is tummy tuck surgery safe?
As with any other surgery, having a tummy tuck does pose some risks. Complications are associated with certain risk factors, such as having combined procedures (i.e. more than one surgery at the same time), being aged 55 or older, or being overweight – which is why this procedure is typically performed after significant weight loss. Dr. Naim will spend time getting to know your needs, goals and unique health journey, ascertaining the risk and discussing any potential complications with you.
His specialized training and experience performing more than 2,000 bariatric surgeries in the Los Angeles area means that you’ll be in good hands.
After tummy tuck surgery
Expect some pain and swelling after a tummy tuck. The good news is, this discomfort is temporary and treatable with medication. Wearing the compression garment the doctor has given you will help reduce swelling.
Plan to take about one to two weeks off work because of soreness. After the surgery, you’ll need to modify physical activity for up to six weeks to ensure proper healing. As you recover, bruising and swelling will decrease, and your scars will improve.
Be patient with the healing process, and be proud of yourself! You’re improving your life and your body. If you have any questions or think something is “off,” don’t hesitate to call our Soma Bariatrics offices in Los Angeles.
