Excess accumulation of fat tissue and loose skin is common in abdominal area. This may occur due to heredity factors, sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, aging or other reasons. If the stubborn fat and loose skin do not respond to diet and exercise, a person may have the choice to undergo abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery. Dr. Bradley Hubbard is a qualified plastic surgeon in Dallas for tummy tuck surgery. The procedure is equally effective for women and men who are unhappy with excess fat deposits and loose skin in the tummy area.
Full or Partial Tummy Tuck (Mini)
The procedure may be performed as a full or partial tummy tuck, depending on the needs of the patient. Dr. Hubbard adopts a customized approach to tummy tuck so that each patient’s aspirations can be addressed more satisfactorily. Customized approach ensures that scarring is minimized, and appropriate body proportion is achieved in the upper and lower abdominal area.
An Experienced Cosmetic Surgeon
As an experienced cosmetic surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Hubbard performs a tummy tuck surgery on candidates who are fit to sustain surgery for two to five hours under general anesthesia. Following the surgery, drains will be left in place for about a week, and dissolvable sutures will be used so that no stitch removal is required later on. The patient has the option to stay overnight at the facility, or go home the same day. In any case, it is important to follow post-op instructions for a safe and quick recovery.
Dr. Hubbard recommends his patients who have marched through the steps of a tummy tuck plastic surgery to refrain from regular daily activities for about 10 to 14 days following the surgery. Heavy lifting and strenuous physical exercise must be avoided for at least four weeks. Mild bruising and swelling is expected in the first few days. Dr. Hubbard may prescribe pain relieving medication for a few days to ensure the patient is more comfortable.
