Fearlessly Go Poolside this Summer- Get a Tummy Tuck

Submitted by Dr. Fasching on Tue 04/18/2017 - 07:59

Swimsuit season is on its way. Are you looking forward to sporting that bikini, or dreading it? If you prefer to hide under your cover-up every summer, come see us and rediscover a fearless love for your body. With a tummy tuck you can eliminate stretch marks, tighten up loose abdominal muscles, and ditch that extra skin. Lounge by the pool and love it, this summer and beyond!

Can a Tummy Tuck Really Restore My Bikini Body?

You used to love your bikini, but then life happened. Pregnancy, weight gain/loss, and aging all take their toll on the abdominal area, leaving stretched out skin, stretch marks, and excess belly fat. You may think that your bikini body is gone forever, but don’t worry, it’s just in hiding. With a tummy tuck you can get it back and look better than ever.
A tummy tuck restores the appearance of the abdominal area. During the procedure we:
• Remove excess skin (and the stretch marks on it)
• Tighten abdominal muscles
• Correct abdominal muscle separation
• Remove unwanted fat
• Redrape the skin
A tummy tuck really does restore a tighter, flatter, more youthful abdominal appearance. Many patients say their stomach looks better after their tummy tuck than it ever did before, even at its prime.

Tummy Tuck Now- Results by Summer!

How long until I see results from my tummy tuck? Many patients are anxious for surgery and excited to show off their new body. It’s not too late to enjoy your results this summer. Hurry in though as it does take some time to heal and summer is right around the corner.
Most patients take 1-2 weeks off from work after a tummy tuck. You’ll need to avoid strenuous activities for about six weeks. Most patients are ready to sport a swimsuit after several weeks, but you should know that scars do take time to fade. This summer your incisions will likely be more noticeable than they will be in future years. You’ll also want to avoid exposing your scars to too much sun, since this can lead to permanent discoloration. Enjoy a flatter tummy this summer, even if you’re not quite bikini ready yet.
Don’t fear summer any longer. With a great body the warmed weather can be one of the most enjoyable times of the year. Get your body back with a tummy tuck. Call today and schedule your consultation with Dr. Fasching.
