Tummy Tuck in Richmond, TX

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to improve the shape and appearance of your abdomen. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat around your abdomen, and the tightening of abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is an ideal way to shape your stomach after a considerable weight loss that has left behind sagging and unattractive skin. Signature Plastic Surgery offers tummy tucks to residents of Richmond, TX.

Benefits of Tummy Tuck

  • Removes protrusion of the abdominal area.
  • Removes sagging or excess abdominal skin.
  • Improves and tightens weakened and loose abdominal muscles.
  • Creates a firm and tight-looking stomach.

Tummy Tuck Procedure

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia. During the surgery, excess skin is removed, and loose abdominal muscles are tightened. The remaining abdominal skin is stretched downward in order to create a slim and toned-looking stomach. Finally, the incision is closed with sutures.

Recovery from Tummy Tuck

Typical side effects include swelling, bruising and pain, which subside during the days following the surgery. You will receive detailed instructions on how to care for your incision, and how to relieve pain. A follow-up appointment is scheduled to ensure the surgery was a success and that you are healing properly.

Dear Patients,

I am announcing the closure of my practice, Signature Plastic Surgery. Effective December 31, 2022, I
will be moving on to a new practice opportunity. I have enjoyed serving the people of Sugar Land since
2008. This has been a difficult decision for me to make, but I am looking forward to the new
opportunity, and I know that I will look back fondly on the past 14 years.
