Tummy Tuck

Regular exercise, a wholesome diet, and a healthy body weight can only go so far when it comes to achieving a firm, attractive midsection. While you may take good care of yourself, you might still be frustrated by a belly bulge and sagging skin. Abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, with Baton Rouge plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Weiler or Dr. Robyn Daugherty may be the most effective solution when abdominal skin and muscles don’t bounce back after pregnancy or other major weight loss. Our surgeons help women and men attain the contoured look they envision for themselves with this surgery.

Are You a Tummy Tuck Candidate?

Women and men visit Dr. Weiler and Dr. Daugherty for tummy tuck surgery in Baton Rouge and Hammond, LA, to renew their midsections after pregnancy, significant weight loss, and aging have caused sagging and bulging in the abdominal area. Our surgeons personalize this procedure for each patient’s unique anatomy and cosmetic goals to provide the following benefits:

  • Tightening lax, wrinkled abdominal skin
  • Flattening a belly bulge by repairing stretched, separated abdominal muscles
  • Contouring the waist and hips
  • Reshaping the belly button
  • Reducing stretch marks

Multiple concerns can be addressed in one surgery by combining tummy tuck with other procedures. After pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding, women may choose Mommy Makeover surgery to rejuvenate the tummy, breasts, and other areas. After bariatric surgery, a tummy tuck may be combined with an arm lift and thigh lift for an even greater improvement.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

Dr. Weiler and Dr. Daugherty perform abdominoplasty as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. They typically place an incision that spans between the hip bones just above the pubic area, and a second incision that traces the inner navel. After separating the skin from the inner tissues, your surgeon repairs the abdominal muscles if necessary. Your surgeon also performs aggressive liposuction of the belly, hips, and waist to contour the midsection. Your surgeon completes the procedure by smoothing the outer skin down, inserting the navel through its new location in the tightened skin, trimming excess lax skin, and closing the incisions.

During the surgery, 2 thin tubes called surgical drains are inserted through the incision to aid in removing excess fluid from treated areas to accelerate healing and reduce swelling.

Recovery

You will need an adult friend or family member to drive you home after surgery and help you out for the first few days. Because a non-opioid medication called EXPAREL® is applied to the surgical area during surgery, pain is typically well controlled for the first 72 hours.

Help the Healing Process

While you may not be able to stand fully upright initially, it is important to get up and walk slowly as soon as the evening of your surgery or the next morning. Light walking promotes circulation and facilitates the healing process.

You will need to wear a surgical body-shaping garment at all times for the first 2 weeks, and then as much as possible for a total of 4 to 6 weeks. The constant gentle pressure minimizes swelling and encourages smooth contours as your body heals.

Check in With Your Doctor

You will return for your first post-op check a day or 2 after surgery so we can remove your dressings and examine the incisions. Drains are usually removed at the 1-week post-op visit.

Return to Your Routine

While recovery rates vary, most patients are ready to return to work and daily activities within 2 weeks. You will need to hold off on strenuous exercise for about 6 weeks or as directed by your doctor.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a tummy tuck cost?

The cost of a tummy tuck depends on several factors, including the extent of the procedure, the training and experience of the surgeon, and the geographic location of the plastic surgery practice. It is worth noting that tummy tuck surgery has a 97% “worth it” rating on the RealSelf website. Our practice offers several financing options designed for plastic surgery patients who want to spread their payments over several months.

Can insurance cover a tummy tuck?

Medical insurance typically does not cover the cost of a tummy tuck because it is considered elective, cosmetic surgery. More extensive skin removal surgery following massive weight loss may be partly or fully covered if a physician says the procedure is medically necessary.

Is tummy tuck surgery safe?

Tummy tuck surgery is considered safer than ever today, thanks to advanced surgical techniques such as longer-lasting numbing agents, and improved pre-op measures that significantly minimize the risk of complications. Weiler Plastic Surgery enjoys an excellent safety record for tummy tuck surgery and all other procedures.
