1) Who’s an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck?
Every year, thousands of people seek tummy tuck surgery to improve their body shape.

2) How does a tummy tuck work?
A tummy tuck procedure is an outpatient surgery that takes about three hours. Dr. Feledy makes two incisions across your lower abdomen, hidden beneath your bikini line. The excess skin between the incisions is lifted or removed. He repairs the abdominal muscles that have stretched over time. Once these steps are completed, the incisions are closed with sutures. A surgical dressing and a compression garment will be applied to the treated areas to minimize swelling.
3) What should I expect after my tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck is an extensive surgical procedure. Plan to limit your physical activities for a few weeks. Walking shortly after surgery will be encouraged to get you moving again. After several weeks, you will no longer need to wear a compression garment and you will be able to do all your activities with no restrictions. Scars will fade as they heal over the next several months. But protect yourself from the sun. Specific instructions will be provided by Dr. Feledy and the staff at Belmont Plastic Surgery.
4) Are there any tummy tuck alternatives to consider?
For some candidates, there are less extensive procedures like a mini tummy tuck or liposuction. But to achieve optimal contouring of the midsection, there's no substitute for the full tummy tuck. No other procedure can flatten your abdominal area as effectively as abdominoplasty.
5) Are there any risks or side effects to getting a tummy tuck?
Most of the potential side effects of a tummy tuck involve the appearance of the final body shape and contour. Make sure to communicate effectively throughout your procedure to prevent problems.
