Tummy Tuck in Houston & The Woodlands
Are You Interested In A Tummy Tuck Procedure, But Unsure If It’s Right For You?
Thousands of people from all over Texas – including the Woodlands and other Houston suburbs – have treated themselves to this procedure. Also known as an abdominoplasty, it can help you get a flatter, more toned stomach in a single treatment with long-lasting results.
Michael J. Streitmann, M.D., a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers tummy tuck surgery to remove excess fat and skin for a smoother, tighter stomach.
Who Might Benefit From An Abdominoplasty?
Otherwise healthy adults of all ages and genders can enjoy benefits from an abdominoplasty. It is especially popular among both women and men who have recently lost weight but found that excess skin or stubborn abdominal fat have prevented them from getting the results they want.
Women, in particular, can find they reverse many of pregnancy’s effects on the figure when they use an abdominoplasty. In combination with exercise and a healthy lifestyle, it is easily possible for women to achieve a flat, youthful tummy throughout most phases of life.
What Does the Abdominoplasty Consist of?
An abdominoplasty is a routine cosmetic procedure, but it should only be performed by a highly experienced and trusted surgeon. When medical best practices are followed to the letter, the odds of any complications are minimized.
During the procedure, the patient is gently sedated. General anesthesia – which is similar to restful sleep – is available for those who feel anxious about the process. In general, the surgery does not take longer than an hour.
A small horizontal incision is made between the pubic hairline and the belly button. When the abdominal skin is lifted, weakened muscles underlying it can be repaired. Excess skin can be removed and a new opening created for the belly button.
Afterward, the incision is closed using sutures or other recognized surgical techniques.
When Can You Expect Results?
You’ll notice results from your abdominoplasty procedure right away. As with any form of surgery, there may be minor swelling, discoloration, and discomfort. It may take a week or two before you can enjoy the complete results in the mirror.
Many aspects of abdominoplasty surgery are permanent. For example, excess skin that has been removed will not grow back. Remember, though: It will still be possible for the body to develop and store unneeded abdominal fat. Exercise and diet assist in maintaining results.
Most patients notice the following benefits:
- A flatter, tighter abdomen and narrower waist
- Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
- Elimination of stretch marks due to tightening of skin
