Abdominoplasty, most commonly known as a “Tummy Tuck,” is a procedure performed by Dr. Scott Wells to remove all the excess skin and fat between the pubic line and above the belly button.
During a tummy tuck, the abdominal muscles are tightened concurrently to contour and reshape a more youthful waistline. The skin from above your umbilicus is then brought down to the pubic area.
Dr. Wells and his Board Certified anesthesiologist and surgical nurse utilize pain relief catheters and other techniques that have made the discomfort, previously associated with this procedure, a thing of the past.
Dr. Wells often performs liposuction on the adjoining “love handles” to get an optimum shape and result. In most cases, liposuction is performed of the upper abdomen to give the most sculptured shape possible.
The incisions from an abdominioplasty are located very low down on the abdomen and can be hidden in most bikini or “French cut” underwear. The incisions take a few months to fully mature, and become almost invisible.
The results following an abdominoplasty by Dr. Scott Wells are significantly dramatic. For patients who have stretch marks or scars below the umbilicus, the results are unbelievable.
Most patients return to work in about a week following their tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedure. You should see incredible results in about two to three weeks.
