Tummy Tuck is a surgical procedure that helps improve the shape and appearance of your stomach.

Tummy Tuck Procedure
A Tummy Tuck is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia. During the surgery, Dr. Korman will perform a horizontal incision above the pubic bone. Next, excess skin and fat is removed, and abdominal muscles are tightened to create a toned and tighter looking stomach. Finally the incision is closed with sutures.
Recovery from Tummy Tuck Surgery
Recovery from a Tummy Tuck takes about one month to six weeks, after which you can typically resume your normal activities. Typical side effects of the surgery include pain, swelling, and bruising, which usually subside within weeks. You can manage pain with prescription or over-the-counter pain medications. It is also recommended you wear an elastic bandage to reduce swelling and aid healing until Dr. Korman says you can stop.
