Everyone wants a fast recovery from their cosmetic surgery including breast augmentation, breast reductions and lifts, tummy tucks or abdominoplasties and many other. Rapid recovery from surgery can be related to the commercial about arthritis that says, “A body at rest tends to stay at rest”. This saying is taken from Newton's First Law of Motion which states that, “a body at rest will remain at rest unless an outside force acts on it’. If you took high school physics you will remember this!
Unlike liposuction of the abdomen, the tummy tuck procedure usually involves the removal of fat and skin, as well as tightening of the abdominal muscles. The incision is much longer than with a traditional liposuction procedure and you’ll have a long scar from the incision that’s made across the pelvic bone. Since the tummy tuck is a much more extensive procedure, it’s crucial that you follow the surgeon’s post-operative instructions diligently and take extra care of yourself for the weeks after surgery.
The tummy tuck procedure can completely transform your midsection and is an attractive option for those who have lost a lot of weight and want a tighter, defined waistline, or women who have had multiple pregnancies. Since this procedure is more extensive than liposuction of the abdomen, you need to follow your surgeon’s post-op instructions and know what red flags to look out for during the recovery process.
We have talked a lot about the Mommy Makeover which usually includes a breast augmentation (with or without a lift), liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to help moms get their pre-pregnancy figure back. However, dads are also helping take kids to soccer along with trying to keep up with today's fast-paced environment. So, let us not forget about Dad's option to help improve his appearance, too!
Preparing for your first meeting with a tummy tuck surgeon can be stressful. You must mentally prepare to get undressed and show your doctor the area where you need work. In addition, you are anxious to talk to the doctor about what you want changed about your figure and you aren’t quite sure if this doctor will give you the results you envision.
Individual surgeons have different philosophies in their approach to cosmetic plastic surgery. We have all seen surgical results that look obviously operated and sometimes distorted. Dr. Samuel aims to achieve a surgical result that looks as natural as possible. This is especially important in nasal surgery and rejuvenative facial surgery but is a principal which should be observed throughout the plastic surgery field.
