What Is A Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tuck procedures have a 95% worth it rating on RealSelf and are a very commonly performed procedure in the United States. A tummy tuck procedure, medically called abdominoplasty, is performed to tighten the abdomen and remove excess skin to achieve a flatter and more contoured stomach. Generally, women tend to undergo abdominoplasty procedures after they have finished having children or after they have lost a significant amount of weight since they cause the skin to stretch. During the surgery, an incision line is made across the bottom of the abdomen so that the abdominal muscles can be tightened and any stretch marks and excess skin can be removed.
What Are The Different Types Of Tummy Tuck?
There are several different techniques that can be used for the procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Liland will discuss these techniques and suggest which option is most suitable for your surgical needs. The two main types of abdominoplasty are:
Mini Tummy Tuck
This technique is suitable for patients with more minimal concerns as the procedure only alters the lower region of the abdomen. Many patients only have concerns with the lower section of their stomach so do not require a full abdominoplasty procedure to address these issues. A smaller incision line is made across the bottom of the abdomen so that the muscles of the lower abdomen can be tightened and any excess skin can be removed. The recovery from this technique is less significant since the procedure is less extensive.
Full Tummy Tuck
Many patients have concerns regarding their entire stomach and so require a full abdominoplasty procedure to achieve their surgical goals. The surgical technique is the same as stated above, but the incision line is longer so that the upper region of the abdomen can also be accessed and tightened. In some cases, the belly button will be repositioned on the abdomen by creating a new opening to ensure the belly button remains in the correct position on the stomach.
What Procedures Can Be Combined With A Tummy Tuck?
Abdominal liposuction is very commonly performed alongside an abdominoplasty procedure so that unwanted fat deposits can be removed across the stomach to achieve an even flatter and more contoured abdomen. Liposuction can be performed across the entire abdomen if a full tummy tuck is performed, but only lower abdomen liposuction will be performed with a mini tummy tuck.
Many surgeons recommend getting liposuction performed alongside the procedure so do not be offended if this is suggested during your consultation as it produces the best results. Liposuction removes the fat deposits using a cannula that vacuums out the fat cells from the skin.

Mommy makeover procedures tend to always include an abdominoplasty surgery alongside a breast procedure for patients who want to restore their bodies after childbirth. If you have concerns regarding your abdomen as well as your breasts or another area of your body such as the buttocks then you may be suitable to have a mommy makeover procedure. The advantage of undergoing the procedures together is that it tends to be cheaper and there will only be one recovery period. For information regarding the recovery from a mommy makeover procedure, you can read our blog ‘Mommy Makeover Recovery In Dallas‘.
Tummy Tuck Recovery
Generally, it takes eight weeks for our Johnson County tummy tuck patients to have recovered from their procedure and be able to return to normal activities. Initially, after the procedure patients should be driven home by an adult and have someone stay with them for the first few days when side effects from the surgery and the pain will be at their worst. Some patients will have drains in place and will require a follow-up appointment to have them removed. It is essential that the incision site is kept covered and clean to reduce the risk of infection. A compression garment is also likely to be advised by your surgeon to help with the excess fluid build-up and swelling after the procedure.
RealSelf explains that recovering from an abdominoplasty procedure can be difficult and so it is important that patients do not rush their recovery period. During your recovery, you should not over-exert yourself and should ensure you get plenty of rest and have pain medication when necessary. If you experience any symptoms your surgeon did not discuss with you prior to your surgery you should contact them to help ensure a safe recovery period.

How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost In Johnson County, Texas?
RealSelf state that the average cost of a mini tummy tuck in the United States is over $6,300 which is cheaper than the other surgical techniques since only the lower half of the abdomen is impacted. According to RealSelf, the average cost of a full abdominoplasty procedure is over $8,300. However, the actual price of both these procedures is likely to be significantly higher than these figures after hospital and anesthesia fees are paid. Furthermore, many patients choose to undergo abdominal liposuction with their procedure which will increase the price of the surgery.
Insurance companies very rarely finance the cost of abdominoplasty procedures since there is no medical purpose to most abdominoplasty procedures. This means that the vast majority of our Johnson County tummy tuck patients will need to finance the entire process themselves. This is why surgeons will offer a variety of financing plans from a range of different companies to help their patients set up a suitable payment plan for their surgery.
