Tummy Tuck Services
Northern Virginia, Maryland and D.C.

Tummy TuckDo you have a protruding abdomen that just doesn’t respond to regular exercise and/or a healthy diet? Factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, and/or aging will affect the appearance and quality of an individual’s midsection, and may not be able to flatten out without the help of a qualified plastic surgeon. At my practice, Widder Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center in Northern Virginia, tummy tuck surgery can be of great assistance to those who seek a more sculpted abdomen. Along with my caring staff, I am dedicated to patient safety and satisfaction.

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Technically termed “abdominoplasty,” this procedure is designed to provide patients with a more toned appearance. This procedure is typically performed through incisions made in the lower abdomen from hipbone to hipbone. The skin is separated from the underlying muscles, which allows me to tighten them. I will then pull the skin down and trim away any excess; a new opening for the belly button is made as well during a full abdominoplasty. Ninety-nine percent of patients receive a full tummy tuck because they have loose skin from the chest bone down to the pubic bone. The technique you choose, however (i.e., the mini tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck), will be dependent on the amount of stretched muscles and loose, excess skin present. After a thorough examination and discussion regarding your desired results, the most appropriate method will be determined. Prior to surgery, you must refrain from smoking approximately two weeks before the procedure and follow the diet sheet provided during your consultation. Also, refrain from taking aspirin for two weeks before surgery.

Tummy Tuck Recovery

After your procedure a binder garment must be worn for three weeks to allow for optimal healing. You may return to light duty work in one week and exercise and normal activities may be resumed in six weeks. We can further discuss the tummy tuck recovery period during a consultation. Visit our Tummy Tuck Recovery page for more details...

In addition, tummy tuck patients, including those who reside in the area of Washington, D.C., may wish to undergo other body contouring procedures in order to achieve an overall makeover. Some of the most commonly combined surgeries include liposuction and breast augmentation surgery.
