Your Tummy Tuck in Birmingham

tummy tuck

After pregnancy or extreme weight gain or loss, the skin, tissues, and muscles of the abdomen may lose tone and elasticity. Choosing to have a tummy tuck in Birmingham can help. During abdominoplasty, a surgeon skillfully removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen while adding support and reconstructing the abdominal muscles. The result is a flatter, smoother stomach that is more defined and attractive.

There are several different kinds of abdominoplasty, however, and your doctor will discuss with you the type best suited for your body. Less invasive procedures entail making many small incisions on the abdomen, i.e. the endoscopic method. Other options that result in only minimal scarring are the so-called “mini” tummy tucks with shorter incisions more suitable for the removal of smaller amounts of tissue and skin.

For more extreme results, a full abdominoplasty may be required. This is where the incision runs from hip bone to hip bone, and an incision circles the navel. The “fleur-de-lis” incision is another more drastic option and resembles an anchor running down through the navel, extending to either side to each hip bone.

Some surgeon may also suggest including liposuction with your tummy tuck to shape and define your abdomen and give you the best results possible. Not every surgeon prefers to include liposuction with a tummy tuck, however, so we recommend asking your surgeon their opinion during your consultation.

Depending on the technique your surgeon selects for you, you’ll need to spend 1 to 3 nights recovering in hospital after the operation. The full cosmetic results can take between 6 to 8 weeks to be fully appreciated as swelling and bruising subside.

Tummy Tuck in Birmingham: Frequently Asked Questions

As with any surgery, it's completely normal to have questions about your tummy tuck in Birmingham. We’ve compiled some answers to a few commonly asked questions to help you decide if this is the treatment for you.

  • What happens to my belly button after a tummy tuck?

    expand_more

    Many patients worry about what will happen to their navels after the procedure. A mini tummy tuck or endoscopic tummy tuck will leave your navel as it is; full abdominoplasty will require an incision that circles your navel and may result in a belly button that appears higher than it was before.

    However, a plastic surgeon cannot actually move the navel itself, which is attached to the abdominal muscles. Once the skin and underlying tissues are treated, however, the navel may appear to be very slightly lifted, if any change is noticed at all. If this occurs, patients are usually happy with the outcome.

  • What happens if I gain or lose weight after my tummy tuck?

    expand_more

    A tummy tuck is intended to tighten, tone, and flatten the midsection, but it will not help significantly reduce excess fat tissue. While the surgeon can remove excess skin and fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, the results are not on par with liposuction.

    Surgeons at Medbelle recommend that you are at your ideal, stable weight before attempting a tummy tuck. This is because weight fluctuations after the procedure could reverse the results and take away from the aesthetic you’re trying to achieve. Weight gain after surgery will stretch out the tissues and skin again, whereas weight loss will lead to loose, hanging skin.

  • Will a tummy tuck remove my stretch marks?

    expand_more

    This is not the main aim of the surgery, however, it sometimes does happen that in tightening the muscles and removing excess skin, the abdominal surface is smoothed and the appearance of stretch marks and scars reduced. Though this can happen, however, it’s unpredictable and advisable not to expect this specific outcome.
