Abdominoplasty (“Tummy Tuck”) Chicago
Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as the tummy tuck, appeals to patients who want to flatten and shape the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles.
For individuals looking to improve the look of their abdomen and waist, Abdominoplastys (“Tummy Tucks”) are often recommended. Abdominoplastys are completed by removing excess fat and tightening the muscles in the abdomen area. Most often, individuals seeking tummy tucks have excess skin and pockets of fat that they haven’t been able to remove through diet and exercise. Often, women seeking Abdominoplastys have muscles and skin that have been stretched during pregnancy.
An Abdominoplasty is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia and lasts between two and five hours. Recovery can take anywhere from two weeks to a few months. As long as the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercises regularly, the results from an Abdominoplasty last a long time. Although and Abdominoplasty will most likely leave a permanent scar between the hips, the scar is generally low enough to be concealed by a bikini.

You can expect a full recovery anywhere between two weeks and a few months, and with regular exercise and a healthy diet, the results are long-lasting.
