Many people struggle with stubborn fat and excess, flabby skin they would love to shed. However, sometimes traditional weight loss methods don’t have much effect on certain areas of the body.

Abdominoplasty in Oak Brook

What is A Tummy Tuck?

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can help you get the flat stomach you have always wanted. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that involves removing unwanted fat and excess skin in the abdominal region. This procedure is used to sculpt the torso and eliminate fat that doesn’t respond to weight loss and exercise, leaving your stomach smoother and flatter.

We offer a variety of tummy tuck solutions at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute. Each procedure method produces highly effective, personalized results when executed by our skilled plastic surgeons in Oak Brook, IL.

Some of our tummy tuck procedure options include:

  • Traditional Tummy Tuck
  • Mini-Tummy Tuck
  • Vaser Lipo-Abdominoplasty
  • Vaser-Assisted High Lateral Tension Abdominoplasty

Over the years, tummy tuck procedures have evolved to allow cosmetic professionals to cultivate highly custom results with faster recovery times. Many of our procedure options also help to create a more contoured abdomen.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

The tummy tuck procedure involves surgically removing excess skin to flatten and sculpt the abdomen. Excess or sagging skin often results from significant weight loss or pregnancy. This is because our bodies conform when we put on additional weight. When we lose that weight, sometimes we’re left with flabby skin in the abdominal region.

A tummy tuck also involves liposuction. Liposuction in Oak Brook is used to permanently remove fat that doesn’t respond to traditional diet and exercise. Liposuction involves loosening fat cells before removing them through suction. The abdominal area is a common location for liposuction treatment, although many clients also opt to get liposuction done on other areas of the body, such as the thighs and back.

Good Candidates for Tummy Tuck

Good candidates for a tummy tuck in Oak Lawn are individuals who are near their goal weight and are dedicated to maintaining results after surgery. This means sticking to a good diet and exercise program that will ensure your results are long-lasting. Candidates also should not smoke, as this impedes the healing process.

Some examples of individuals who commonly undergo this procedure include:

  • Individuals with diastasis of the abdominal wall.
  • Women who have loose skin in the abdominal area, unwanted fat, and/or a bulging abdomen due to diastasis of the abdominal wall after pregnancy.
  • Individuals who have undergone moderate to extensive weight loss.
  • Individuals who desire a flatter, more taut appearance of the abdomen.

Individuals who are still planning on having children or breastfeeding are not good candidates for tummy tuck surgery.

Tummy Tuck Recovery

The tummy tuck recovery process varies from person to person, depending on the extent of the surgery, how much fat or skin was removed, the patient’s general health, and other factors. Surgical procedure methods also play an important role in how quickly you will recover from your tummy tuck.

After surgery you will be instructed to wear a compression garment for 6-8 weeks. Surgical drains may also be placed to aid in the healing process, but these are typically removed within a week after the procedure. Patients should wait 6-8 weeks before taking part in strenuous activity or exercise.

Most patients take about 1-4 weeks off work to recover, depending on their job demands. It can take up to 6 months for patients to fully heal from the procedure. Swelling and bruising usually lasts anywhere from 2-3 months. Some patients may experience mild numbness or a tugging sensation during their recovery, but these symptoms usually fade with time.

How Long Do Results Last?

The results of a tummy tuck should last at least 10 years with proper diet and nutrition. Things like pregnancy, injuries, weight gain, and other surgeries can impact results.
