About Tummy Tuck Cosmetic Surgery – Piedmont Triad
For your comfort and safety, you will be asleep under general anesthesia during your abdominoplasty at our Greensboro AAAHC accredited outpatient surgical center. Your Piedmont Triad tummy tuck plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis will perform one of two tummy tuck procedures:
Full Abdominoplasty or Full Tummy Tuck
For the full abdominoplasty, board certified Greensboro plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis will make an incision along your lower abdomen, removing excess fat and skin while tightening your abdominal muscles. She will also make an incision around the navel.
Mini-Abdominoplasty or Mini-Tummy Tuck
A mini abdominoplasty is done primarily when just the lower abdomen, often called the “mommy pouch”, is the area of concern. It is a smaller incision than the one created for the full abdominoplasty.
Though an abdominoplasty is a more extensive surgery, it is a more thorough and effective technique to reduce your abdomen size. Female board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis at our Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness in Greensboro often performs liposuction in conjunction with your tummy tuck.
Recovery from Abdominoplasty – Piedmont Triad
If you have a regular exercise plan, you will heal more quickly after your tummy tuck at our Piedmont Triad AAAHC accredited outpatient surgical center. An abdominoplasty is major surgery, so it is natural that getting back to normal may take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Swelling usually takes at least 6 months to resolve completely. Scars can take six months to a year to flatten and fade. At that point, they will not show under your clothes or be visible when you wear most swimsuits.
