If you have loose, excess skin around your abdomen due either to extreme weight loss or pregnancy, then you may be the perfect candidate for a tummy tuck from Dr. Gary J. Price. By surgically repairing your abdominal muscles and removing excess skin from your abdomen and tightening it, a tummy tuck will give you a more taut stomach. If you have a lot of questions about this procedure, Dr. Gary J. Price is your guide, and he can answer all of your questions in your initial consultation. To hopefully help answer a few of the items on your list, this article will answer from frequently asked questions about tummy tuck surgery. Read on to learn more.
Will My Tummy Tuck Scar Be Noticeable?
One of Dr. Price’s goals when he performs a tummy tuck is to make the incisions low enough that you can cover it with a bikini or panties. Depending on how much excess skin that you have, Dr. Price will determine exactly how low he can make the incision while still giving you the best surgical results.
Will I Be Able to Get Pregnant After Abdominoplasty?
Yes, although we don’t encourage patients to get an abdominoplasty until they are done having children because pregnancy may affect your results. However, if you do decide to get pregnant later on or if you receive a nice surprise, then your tummy tuck shouldn’t have any sort of effect on your pregnancy.
How Long Do Tummy Tuck Results Last?
How long a tummy tuck lasts will be determined by the individual, their lifestyle, and their age. Because loose skin is a common part of the aging process, the more you age, the more likely you are to experience this.
