What is a Tummy Tuck?
The abdomen can begin to protrude or sag after pregnancy, weight gain, or extreme weight loss. So to help remedy this, Cosmetic Surgery Center of Austin recommends a Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty. A Tummy Tuck is a procedure performed by Dr. David Mosier to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen. This procedure is meant to tighten the abdominal muscles.
How Does the Procedure Work?
During the procedure, surgeon Dr. David Mosier will lift the skin from the abdomen and tighten the underlying muscles with carefully placed sutures to ensure long-lasting results. Excess fat in the area is sculpted, sometimes using liposuction techniques, to create more proportional contours and a smoother silhouette. Once this is complete, the skin is drawn downward, excess skin is snipped away, and the incision is stitched carefully to minimize scarring.
Am I good candidate for Tummy Tuck?
Over time, some women experience loss of elasticisty in their abdomen. This is usually due to significant weight loss or pregancy. It this sounds like you, then you are an excellent candidate for a Tummy Tuck. This procedure is not intended to lose weight but to tighten and tone the skin around the abdomen to give you that sleek look. Patients have experienced a surge in confidence after the procedure.

What Should I Expect After Surgery?
Dr. Mosier wants to ensure you have a speedy recovery after surgery. For about a week post-surgery, the abdomen will be a little swollen and sore. One to Two weeks is recommended before returning to work. Approximately 6 weeks is expected for a full recovery. There will be a scar at the bottom of the abdomen that flattens and lightens in color about eight to nine weeks after surgery. Have more Questions?
