4 FAQ About Tummy Tucks, Manhattan, New York

If you’re not happy with the way your body looks, you might be considering a tummy tuck. This procedure uses both liposuction and excision to remove unwanted fat and tighten the skin, resulting in a flatter stomach and a thinner appearance. While it’s commonly performed, many patients still have questions about it. Below are a few common queries about this surgery.

Common Questions About Tummy Tucks

Will I Be in a Lot of Pain Afterward?

While many people think these procedures are painful, you won’t be in unbearable discomfort when you wake up. Pain control methods have seen a lot of advancement in recent years. For instance, there is now a medication that controls discomfort and lasts for up to three days, making the recovery easier.

What Is the Recovery Like?

tummy tuckGenerally, it takes about a week after the procedure to return to normal activities, like driving. However, you may want to wait an additional seven to 14 days before going back to work, so you regain your energy and aren’t uncomfortable. You can expect to be fully recovered in about six to eight weeks.

I’m Unhappy With My Stretch Marks. Can This Procedure Help With Those?

If the stretch marks are located in the area that the doctor will operate on, this procedure can remove them. This is an added bonus for many women who have given birth or gained a lot of weight.

Why Should I Schedule This Instead of a Liposuction?

While liposuction removes excess fat, it doesn’t tighten the abdominal walls or remove stretch marks. It’s generally only recommended for women who have not been pregnant. A tummy tuck is a more extensive procedure but can achieve all these goals. In the end, your abdomen will be noticeably smoother and flatter.

Is the Procedure Permanent?

The results are permanent, provided that you do not gain an excessive amount of weight after the procedure. Patients who have this operation usually do not need it more than once.
