One of the most frequently requested of these procedures among mothers is abdominoplasty, popularly known as tummy tuck surgery. The tummy tuck procedure is potentially ideal for mothers who are struggling to eliminate accumulated deposits of fat from their abdominal regions after giving birth, despite their best efforts to do so through exercise and diet.

In discussing tummy tuck after pregnancy during consultations at his San Antonio, TX plastic surgery practice, Dr. Fisher explains that he can perform the procedure on its own or in conjunction with other procedures as part of a comprehensive mommy makeover plan. A typical mommy makeover plan might also include such procedures as liposuction, breast lift surgery, and thigh lift surgery. Ultimately, Dr. Fisher wants you to be as satisfied as possible with your results and your post-pregnancy body contours.

What Does Tummy Tuck after Pregnancy Entail?

As any woman who has been pregnant knows, pregnancy definitely changes the body. It can stretch out the abdominal muscles and leave lingering deposits of fat that stubbornly resist attempts at diet and exercise across the tummy area. While many women are content to let the changes in their bodies be after pregnancy, others want to regain their previous figures. It is with these women in mind that Dr. Fisher provides tummy tuck surgery customized to the unique needs of women who have given birth.

During tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Fisher removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal region. He also tightens the underlying musculature, which can significantly improve the appearance of the tummy. Once the necessary adjustments have been made, he pulls the remaining skin taut and closes the incision with sutures.

Because the tummy tuck procedure is customized to the needs and goals of each individual mother, the size and placement of the incision will vary. Some patients require only a small amount of skin and fat to be removed from beneath the navel, in which case minimally invasive techniques can be employed to ensure as little scarring and downtime as possible. Most mothers, however, prefer to achieve the more dramatic results that are possible only through the traditional tummy tuck, which accounts for the entire abdominal region. For mothers with excess tissues that extend to the flanks and around to the lower back, Dr. Fisher can perform an extended tummy tuck, which yields even more thorough results.
