After childbirth, years of child-rearing, or simply as a part of the aging process, patients often feel concerned about the shape of their abdomen. Sometimes there is fat that refuses to budge or sagging skin that won’t stay in place. At Cornerstone Plastic Surgery, Dr. Coville performs abdominoplasty surgery to restore his patient’s youthful abdomen contour. 

What is an Abdominoplasty?

Often added as part of a mommy makeover, abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, removes excess skin around the waist and readjusts underlying muscles to restore the youthful appearance of the abdomen. Liposuction may be added to a tummy tuck to get rid of excess fat during your tummy tuck. 

The scarring is hidden behind the bikini line but can be considerably noticeable in the first few years. The length and exact position of the incision depends on the patient’s body and goals.

How Much is a Tummy Tuck?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a tummy tuck is $6,092, ranging between $3,000 and $15,000. Factors in the cost of your abdominoplasty are the type of tummy tuck, provider, consultation fees, anesthesia fee, geographic location, and any expenses associated with recovery. 

The only reliable way to get an accurate price for your treatment plan is to schedule an in-person consultation.

How Long is Recovery from a Tummy Tuck?

Recovery from a tummy tuck varies depending on general health, age, and the extent of the tummy tuck. Most patients recover fully after six weeks. Some patients may return to work after two weeks, but most require up to four weeks off. 

If you have any concerns during your recovery, we encourage you to reach out to Dr. Coville about your concerns.

Is a Tummy Tuck Worth It?

Despite a tummy tuck’s high price and prolonged recovery time, 96% of patients on RealSelf say that the procedure is worth it. It is a popular procedure for mothers wanting to reclaim their bodies after childbirth. Men on RealSelf have called the procedure “life-changing.” 

Am I a Good Candidate for Abdominoplasty Surgery?

The best candidates are in relatively good shape but struggle with large fat deposits or loose abdominal skin. Most patients are women whose pregnancies have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin. Other candidates are men and women who have lost significant weight and struggle with remaining sagging skin and older patients who’ve lost their skin elasticity. 

You may need to wait on your tummy tuck if you plan on future pregnancies. Pregnancy can separate the tightened muscles from surgery.
