What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery that repairs stretched abdominal muscles and removes loose skin after weight loss or childbirth. To achieve your desired results, Dr. Greer repairs the weakened abdominal muscles to get rid of the stretched-out look on your stomach.

The second phase of a tummy tuck involves removing all the extra skin from your belly button to your bikini line. A tummy tuck can be an extremely life-enhancing surgery for you. Call us today and schedule your tummy tuck consultation to jumpstart your transformation with Greer Plastic Surgery in Mentor!

Should You Get a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is very routine plastic surgery, but it can add value to your daily life in numerous ways. Many women who have gone through childbirth or experienced significant weight loss find it difficult to attain a flat-stomach appearance.

There have also been studies that show tummy tucks can lower back pain following childbirth. If you are looking to remove excess skin, repair stretched abdominal muscles, and achieve an overall tighter stomach, then a tummy tuck from Dr. Greer can be a perfect solution for you.

See how a tummy tuck can improve your overall appearance.

What Happens During Your Tummy Tuck?

First, Dr. Greer will make an incision in the area between your belly button and bikini line. She then lifts the abdominal skin and repairs your loose abdominal muscles. The skin is then pulled down and the excess skin is removed. Next, a new opening for the belly button is cut before your incisions are closed.

The specific factors that go into a tummy tuck procedure vary depending on the condition of your abdominal muscles, the amount of excess skin you have, and your specific medical history and health. Dr. Greer takes a unique approach to give you the most natural, flattering results.

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost in Mentor, Ohio?

Because Dr. Greer takes a customized approach to every cosmetic surgery, there is no set price for a tummy tuck. The cost to you depends on the specifics of your procedure as well as your unique treatment needs and whether you have additional procedures done at the same time. All of Dr. Greer’s procedures are designed with quality and affordability in mind, and you’ll get a thorough breakdown of your plastic surgery’s cost during your consultation.

What Is the Recovery for a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is an outpatient procedure, and Dr. Greer will guide you through the entire post-operation process to ensure proper healing. The recovery for a tummy tuck surgery may take a little longer than other plastic surgeries because of how frequently you use your core muscles, but Dr. Greer is sure to make your recovery as comfortable and easy as possible.

Dr. Greer may have you use a drain following your surgery, but she will determine if this is even necessary after your tummy tuck. She does nerve blocks so that you feel as comfortable as possible the first night after your surgery, and most patients continue to take pain medication for about a week or less.

You should be able to return to work within two weeks, and a tummy tuck typically takes 6 weeks to fully heal. At this time, you can resume your usual workout routine.
