Patients who seek out abdominoplasty often have not achieved their personal goals through diet and exercise alone. The tummy tuck surgery addresses excess skin and weakened abdominal muscles.

In abdominoplasty, the wall of the tummy is tucked and reinforced, which gives the name tummy tuck. Dr. Ashraf possesses incredible skills for modeling as well as forming the abdominal muscles, and this helps her to deliver outstanding results to patients.

Why Get Abdominoplasty?

Multiple factors contribute to excessive fat deposition, weak muscles and skin laxity. Reasons why patients seek out abdominoplasty include:

  • pregnancy
  • natural body type
  • abdominal surgery like C-section
  • significant changes in the overall weight of the body
  • aging

Excess skin and stretch marks are removed. The muscle weakness is reinforced and tightened. The surgery can be combined with other procedures like breast enhancement and liposuction for better results.

Healing and Recovery

The overall healing phase depends on the extent of the procedure and the techniques. The average recovery is from 4-6 weeks. Depending on the extent of the surgery, patients may be admitted for an overnight hospital stay.

The patient will have to wear a supportive abdominal garment, also known as an abdominal binder, for the next six weeks post-surgery. It is used to prevent fluid buildup and to offer support to the abdomen during the healing phase. One can expect final results between 3-6 months.
