Tummy Tuck in Denver, CO at Atagi Plastic Surgery and Skin Aesthetics
Pregnancy or significant weight gain can sometimes cause abdominal muscles to separate and excess skin to form on the stomach area, creating an unsightly bulge that can be nearly impossible to tame with diet and exercise. A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, can reduce excess fat and skin and tighten the abdominal muscles in your midsection for a slimmer, trimmer appearance.
Where diet and exercise fail, an abdominoplasty in Denver results in a tighter, flatter stomach. Some women also choose to have VASER Lipo® to their hiprolls at the same time as their tummy tuck procedure for enhanced, sleeker results.
A tummy tuck in Denver can:
- Realign separated abdominal muscles
- Reduce excess abdominal fat and skin
- Tighten overlying skin
Frequently Asked Questions about Tummy Tuck in Denver, CO
Will I have a noticeable scar?
Any time an incision is made in the skin, there will be a scar. Dr. Tanya Atagi takes special care to ensure your incision scar is hidden in the bikini line. Our office also carries silicone sheeting, which can help conceal the scarring. We can further discuss silicone sheeting with you at your post-operative appointments.
What happens if I gain weight or get pregnant after a tummy tuck in Denver?
We recommend waiting until after you are done having children to have a tummy tuck, as any future pregnancies would most likely result in having to have another tummy tuck. However, if you do get pregnant, there should be no complications regarding the pregnancy or the baby. If you gain weight after your tummy tuck procedure in Lone Tree, you may undo the results and will have to undergo another procedure.
Can I get a tummy tuck in Denver if I have had a cesarean section?
Yes, patients who have had a cesarean section usually do very well with a tummy tuck procedure. In some cases, the incision from the c-section can even be used.
Is there any downtime?
Yes, there is downtime with the tummy tuck procedure, including swelling and bruising for up to 14 days following surgery. You’ll also need to avoid exercise and heavy lifting for at least six weeks.
