Dr. Lee is especially famous for prioritizing your health and offering natural-appearing results with all procedures. Often, we get patients who are fit and at their ideal weight yet struggling with stubborn fatty deposits. Usually, this unwanted bulge is in the abdominal area and could be a result of aging, genetics, pregnancy, and massive weight loss. When clothes do not fit well over an unshapely tummy, it can affect your confidence. Some patients find that not only do they have excessive fat and skin in the area but also loose and separated abdominal muscles. Unfortunately, it is not possible to lose this without surgical intervention. When you are faced with such issues, it is time to schedule a tummy tuck consultation with Dr. Lee.
Are you a good candidate for a tummy tuck?
Just like any other surgical procedure, you must be in good physical and emotional health, be near your ideal weight, and not be suffering from any pre-existing medical issues such as diabetes or heart disease to be a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Dr. Lee will evaluate your abdominal area to determine whether a tummy tuck is the right procedure for you. You must have realistic expectations from your tummy tuck procedure.
In most cases, it is best that you wait before you consider getting the tummy tuck. This holds when you are planning a pregnancy or wish to lose weight. This is because these events will stretch your abdomen and change the stunning results you get with the tummy tuck.
What can you expect from a tummy tuck?
Medically called abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck procedure is highly customizable and this allows Dr. Lee to use different techniques depending on the severity of your condition. Our patients from Buckhead can benefit from different techniques of a tummy tuck:
- Mini abdominoplasty – When you only have a small amount of fat that is below the belly button, a mini tummy tuck is the best procedure for you. Dr. Lee will make a small incision slightly above your pubic area and remove the excess skin and fat as well as tighten the abdominal muscles.
- Full abdominoplasty – This is the technique used by Dr. Lee in case you are bothered with moderate fat and skin on your tummy. Your incisions are made above the pubic area and go around the navel to remove the excessive fat and skin as well as tighten the underlying muscles. Liposuction may also be used for enhanced results.
- Extended abdominoplasty – Our patients who have undergone massive weight loss and are riddled with excessive loose skin and fatty deposits, benefit the most from the extended version of the tummy tuck. Dr. Lee will make an incision right above your pubic area and extend it around the hips. Another incision will be made around the navel which will be re-positioned to fit in with your new tummy contours.
What results can be expected?
After your tummy tuck surgery, you might experience some soreness, bruising, discomfort, or pain but Dr. Lee will prescribe medication to take care of it. You must follow the specific aftercare instructions given to you so that you can ensure a smooth recovery. Once you see your final results, you will find that the flabby excessive skin and side bulges are gone and the slimmer and toned abdomen will boost your confidence.
