Tummy Tuck Surgery in Houston, TX
For many reasons, millions of people across America experience sagging around their abdomen. If this sounds like you, Signature Plastic Surgery is proud to offer tummy tucks to residents of Houston, TX.
A typical tummy tuck candidate is someone who has sagging or protruding skin due to weight loss, surgery, pregnancy, or aging. The aim of the procedure is to remove folds of skin that look out of place, leaving behind an abdomen that is smoother and more attractive.
On the day of your surgery, Dr. Stapenhorst will make marks to indicate where incisions will be made, then remove the excess skin and fat. The procedure will be performed under a general anesthetic.
For the first week after surgery, you will need to rest as much as possible to prevent placing physical strain on the surgical wound. After two weeks, you should be able to resume light activities and exercises. The overall recovery period should last about six weeks. Initially, you will experience some pain, which can be alleviated with painkillers. You will be asked to wear a supportive garment, and you may also be required to take antibiotics.
Signature Plastic Surgery offers Houston, TX residents both cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, and will be more than pleased to assist you in achieving the look you want via a tummy tuck. You can contact us at 281-616-8800 with any questions you might have or to set up an appointment with our professional staff.
