Am I a candidate for abdominoplasty?
Candidates for surgery usually are men and woman with good health and have a weak abdominal wall or want to remove excess skin. We recommend you to refer to one of our specialists for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for surgery.
Is this procedure painful?
During the procedure, you won’t feel any pain. After surgery, you could experience mild discomfort and swelling. Your specialist will prescribe you pain medication if needed.
How long will recovery take?
Recovery times vary depending on the amount of skin removed. Usually after 2 or 4 weeks you can return to your usual activities. Results will continue to improve for up to 6 months.
For how long will the results last?
Results are generally permanent; however, weight changes may cause fat to accumulate around the abdomen, and this will stretch your skin again.
