If you are working to regain your contours after pregnancy or weight loss, loose skin and accumulated fat can leave you with an abdomen that resists all your efforts. While no amount of weight loss will restore a flat stomach after it has started to sag, abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck can help you achieve a slimmer, more shapely figure.

What is Abdominoplasty?

Whether you call it abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck, this procedure is used to address concerns around your abdominal area related to pregnancy, weight loss, aging, or other factors. These concerns commonly include stretched or sagging skin, pockets of stubborn fat, and weakened or separated muscles. Abdominoplasty tightens the skin and sculpts your contours to restore your confidence. 

How Much Does Abdominoplasty Cost?

While cost always plays a role when considering a procedure, it should only be one part of your choice. You should never compromise on the quality of your surgeon’s work. The cost of a tummy tuck varies due to factors such as:

  • Your location
  • Your surgeon’s credentials, skills, and experience
  • The details of your procedure
  • Associated costs such as lab work, anesthesia, and medications

Sources report that the cost of abdominoplasty ranges from $3,000 to $15,000. This wide range comes from the fact that each one is a unique procedure, with the size of the incision and many other factors customized to your needs. As a result, we recommend a consultation so Dr. Greenberg can discuss your goals and develop a treatment plan.

How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?

Dr. Greenberg performs abdominoplasty under general anesthesia in our accredited surgical facility. He will make an incision across the lower abdomen below the bikini line, with the length of the incision depending on how much loose skin you have and the results you want. Excess skin is removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened, restoring a stronger core. 

Resistant pockets of fat are addressed with liposuction, which can also be used to shape the flanks, thighs, or other areas to improve your contours. The belly button will be moved to its natural position on your tighter stomach, and the incision is closed with sutures. 

What is Recovery Like After Abdominoplasty?

We recommend that tummy tuck patients stay overnight in our comfortable recovery space before returning home to recuperate. Discomfort is managed with medication for the first few days or as needed. You will wear a compression garment for three weeks after surgery. People with low-activity jobs can return after two weeks, but strenuous activities should wait for four to six weeks. Your scar will look red at first, but it will fade over several months to become less visible.

It was exactly the experience I was expecting. Professional, thoughtful, focused on my goals and needs. Dr. Greenberg has a grounded, authentic and realistic approach. He and his staff gave me the confidence I needed to do enhancement surgery. I would work with Dr. Greenberg and his staff again and highly recommend him.
