During your consult with Dr. Eisemann, he will evaluate whether you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck and tell you the expectations for you to get the best results from a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck procedure is performed under a general anesthesia. Initially an incision is made on the lower abdomen from hip to hip. Then the skin is separated from muscle of the abdomen, while excess skin and fat are removed. After this, the two large abdominal muscles get sutured together, the incision is sutured closed, and bandaging is applied. The entire procedure usually takes about three hours. Patients have some bruising and swelling after their procedure, which usually fades away in two weeks. Though there is a scar following surgery, it softens and flattens within about 3-4 months, and the scar is usually covered by underwear or bathing suit bottom.
