At Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL, we understand that many adult men and women are unhappy with their tummies, and they look to our team for the solution. Dr. Stan Castor specializes in abdominoplasty, a procedure that removes excess fat and skin and tightens weakened abdominal muscles and skin so you can have a flatter stomach and slimmer waistline. This procedure is often more well-known by the name “tummy tuck,” and continues to be one of our more popular services.
What Happens During the Tummy Tuck Procedure?
A tummy tuck procedure is an effective way to regain your confidence and improve your physical appearance. If you are serious about taking action to attain the physique of your dreams, our skilled surgeon at Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery will be able to help you achieve it! With this medical procedure performed under general anesthesia, Dr. Stan Castor will remove fat from the abdomen through liposuction, tightening up sagging muscles along with removing excess skin before stitching up small incisions using dissolvable stitches. The entire procedure is done as an outpatient treatment and can be done to remove excess fat and skin in areas that remain stubborn to changes in diet and exercise activity.
What Can I Expect During the Recovery Process?
Healing after the tummy tuck surgery typically takes between one to two weeks, but you may need up to six weeks before full physical activities can be resumed. You will likely feel some discomfort immediately following the surgery, and you may experience swelling and bruising in the area. To minimize these side effects, Dr. Stan Castor of Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery will provide you with detailed post-surgery instructions on how to care for your incisions, along with any other recommendations regarding activity levels and medications.
