There are many men and women who are dissatisfied with their mid-section for various reasons. Factors such as genetics, aging, dramatic weight loss, and pregnancy often play a role in creating undesirable waistlines. For those with excessive sagging skin in the mid-section, or loose and/or separated abdominal muscles, a Danville Abdominoplasty may be the best way to restore youth and improve the body contour of the abdomen.
Just as there are different factors which contribute to dissatisfaction of the abdominal region, there are a couple different Tummy Tuck techniques designed to meet the individual needs of each patient, some of which are more invasive than others depending on the amount of treatment needed. Likewise, a Tummy Tuck alone may not be enough to create the desired results and other body contouring procedures are often used in conjunction with it such as Liposuction to remove any excess fat deposits, Thigh and Buttock Lift or Breast Lift.
“The surgery takes 2-3 hours depending on the patient and can be done with an overnight stay or as an outpatient procedure in a fully accredited private surgery center. The procedure is done under a general anesthetic. Activity level and weight resistance is restricted for 2-3 weeks and then light aerobic exercise for 3-4 weeks with adding weight resistance and increasing intensity to a full work out by 6-8 weeks. Sit-ups and push- ups can be started at 6-8 weeks.”
