Tummy Tuck FAQ

Interested in getting a tummy tuck, but have a few questions about the procedure? A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, eliminates sagging abdominal skin and repairs the underlying musculature to reveal a tighter, toned tummy. Dr. Fasching created the below infographic that includes frequently asked questions about the tummy tuck. For more information about the procedure, contact Dr. Fasching to schedule a consultation!

1. Am I a good candidate?

If you are near your ideal weight and leading a healthy lifestyle, you may be a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery.

2. How does it differ from liposuction?

Liposuction removes localized fat while a tummy tuck removes excess skin from the abdomen.

3. Does it hurt?

You will be anesthetized during the procedure and receive pain medication for recovery to minimize the pain you may feel.
