About Tummy Tuck
What Tummy Tuck Treats:
Say goodbye to unwanted skin
Loose, excess skin
Unwanted stomach fat
After a Tummy Tuck procedure, it’s important to rest and relax to ensure proper healing. After a few weeks, the bruising and swelling will diminish. Within months the scars will begin to subside, and you will feel confident and comfortable in your own skin.
1 week for daily activities
2-6 weeks for physical activity
6 months for a full recovery
Dr. Collins and his experienced team of surgeons provide four types of tummy tucks for patients. Each tummy tuck procedure is aimed at erasing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. With each procedure, small incisions are made to minimize scarring. Once the incisions are made the unnecessary skin is removed and the targeted areas are eliminated to ensure desired results.
Standard Tummy Tuck
The Standard Tummy Tuck is the most commonly preferred Tummy Tuck and is a crowd favorite among many mothers. The Standard Tuck is aimed to tighten abdominal muscles and remove excess fat tissue.
Mini Tummy Tuck
A Mini Tummy Tuck, or more commonly referred to as a”scarless tummy tuck” is for those that have stubborn stomach fat that exercise and diet can’t keep off. An incision is made along the bikini line to tighten muscles and remove excess skin.
Endoscopic Tummy Tuck
This is perfect for patients who want to tone and tighten loose muscles in the abdomen. It will not remove loose skin. After a short incision, your surgeon performs the procedure using an endoscope and camera.
Circumferential Tummy Tuck
The Endoscopic Tummy Tuck aims to tighten and tone muscles within the abdomen, but it doesn’t remove excess skin. The procedure is completed with an endoscope and miniature camera. The Circumferential Tummy Tuck is helpful for those who experienced extreme weight loss and are looking to remove excess sagging skin from the weight loss journey and tighten the muscles.
Can I expect my tummy tuck results to last?
A tummy tuck procedure isn’t a weight loss surgery. With a healthy diet and exercise regimes, the tummy tuck results will last as long as you allow them.
How noticeable is scarring?
Scars from tummy tucks are inevitable. Although, Dr.Collins brings expert skill and precision to his practice and strives to ensure the scar will easily be unnoticeable and easy to cover.
