Achieve a Flatter Abdomen with a Customized Tummy Tuck
Excess skin, fat, and loose abdominal muscles can make you appear heavier than you are and can limit your clothing and activity options. If you want to achieve a leaner, trimmer midsection, Dr. Ashish K. Jain can perform a personalized tummy tuck procedure at his Columbus, GA, practice. Dr. Jain is dedicated to helping each patient achieve the best aesthetics possible for their figure. With his attentive and experienced care, you can achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results.
Choosing the Right Approach
A tummy tuck is a highly customized plastic surgery procedure, also known as an abdominoplasty. This surgery can remove excess skin and fat as well as tighten the underlying muscles to improve the appearance of your midsection. During an in-depth consultation with Dr. Jain, you will discuss the specific parts of your stomach and the surrounding area that bother you.
Abdominoplasty can smooth and tighten your contours to provide results that are often unattainable through diet and exercise alone.
He can help you decide the extent of surgery to be performed and which areas to address the most. If you are bothered by additional areas, you can discuss combining treatments like arm lift or thigh lift into your plan. Dr. Jain is dedicated to providing highly individualized procedures and will listen to your concerns to design the most precise and beneficial surgery plan for your needs.
Why Get a Tummy Tuck?
Age, weight loss, and pregnancy are the most common reasons that our patients have excess skin and fat in their abdomen. This excess tissue can make it difficult to wear the clothes you want or engage in some activities. You may also feel self-conscious about your appearance. However, abdominoplasty can help you achieve the leaner, trimmer figure you want. The procedure can smooth and tighten your contours to provide results that are often unattainable through diet and exercise alone.
Candidates for Treatment
Patients who wish to undergo a tummy tuck should be in good overall health and able to receive general anesthesia. Candidates should note that any future weight gain or pregnancy can reduce or eliminate the results of a tummy tuck. Patients who smoke or drink heavily should be willing to quit before and during recovery, since these behaviors can limit your ability to heal.
What to Expect during Surgery
Your procedure will take place at our advanced ambulatory surgical center, the first accredited facility of its kind in Georgia that is dedicated to plastic surgery. During the surgery, Dr. Jain will begin by making an incision, typically right above your groin area. The length and exact location of the incision will depend on the extent of your surgery. More extensive treatment will result in a larger incision. Through this incision, Dr. Jain can remove excess skin and fat, as well as tighten the abdominal muscles. He may also perform liposuction to improve your surrounding contours.
Depending on the extent of your procedure, you may be able to return home the same day. Some patients will require an overnight stay in the surgical center for observation. After your surgery, you may have drains placed to help remove excess fluid, and you will need to clean and empty your drains every day. You will also be required to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling and help your body shrink to its new contours. Most patients will require a minimum of two weeks off from work. Exercise and physical activity can typically be resumed in six to eight weeks, or when cleared by Dr. Jain.
