An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is undertaken by patients to make the abdominal area firmer and tighter. At REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, we perform abdominoplasty procedures to correct loose or excess skin in this area.
Serving the Melbourne area, our abdominoplasty procedures are performed by Mr. Stephen Salerno. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out more information about abdominoplasty procedures.
What is Abdominoplasty?
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a procedure during which excess skin and/or fat are removed from the abdominal area and underlying muscles are tightened for a tighter, more toned appearance. There are several techniques to perform this procedure, which can depend on the patient’s individual condition and the level of correction desired.
In some cases, abdominoplasty can also be paired with other procedures such as liposuction or breast work to maximize results or treat multiple areas of the body at once. These options can be discussed with Mr. Salerno during your consultation.
Who is a Good Candidate for Abdominoplasty?
Patients who have loose or excess skin and/or fat deposits in their abdominal area as a result of pregnancy or weight loss and who are seeking surgical correction of this condition may be candidates for abdominoplasty. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our Melbourne office. During your appointment, we will discuss your surgical options and create a plan according to your preferences and aesthetic goals.
What is the Recovery Like?
Recovery can be different for every patient, but a degree of bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort may develop after surgery as the abdominal tissues heal. The area may also be bandaged to protect the new contours of your abdomen during the healing process. Mr. Salerno can help you determine how long you should take to recover as well as when you can return to normal activities. All necessary aftercare instructions for your incision sites will be shared with you prior to your procedure in order to reduce the risk of infection or complications.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Abdominoplasty surgery is typically long-lasting, and pairing this procedure with a lifestyle of healthy diet and exercise can help add longevity to this surgical correction to the abdominal area.
