Genetics, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can all result in unwanted fat and sagging skin around the stomach. If you struggle with loose skin and stubborn, exercise-resistant fat around your abdominal area, contact Michigan Plastic Surgery to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Lee H. Colony. During your consultation, Dr. Colony will determine if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck in Michigan. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that can be used to remove excess fat and skin around the stomach and even tighten muscles that may be separated or weakened as a result of pregnancy.
A tummy tuck procedure is most often performed under general anesthesia, but may also be performed under intravenous sedation. Together, you and Dr. Colony will decide which type of anesthesia is most appropriate for you. Once the anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Colony will make a horizontal incision above the pubic area. Through this incision, excess fat will and skin will be removed, and muscles can be repaired as needed. Skin is tightened before the incision is closed to create a leaner, smoother abdominal area.
Following your surgery, you will need some downtime before you can return to work or resume your normal daily activities. Be sure to follow all of Dr. Colony’s post-surgical directions carefully for a safe recovery process.
