Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) in Danville

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is the ideal surgical procedure for women and men who are bothered by the loose and saggy appearance of their stomachs. At Blackhawk Plastic Surgery, we can provide you with natural-looking results from your tummy tuck in Danville.

Tummy Tuck Candidates

The typical patient that presents for abdominal contouring complains of extra skin, extra fat, a stretched or loose abdominal wall(diastasis), stretch marks, and/or poor lower abdominal skin quality. These conditions are often results of pregnancy or weight loss. Some patients complain that they can’t see their belly button and others that their clothes don’t fit properly. The abdominoplasty or tummy tuck procedure addresses all of these issues.

*Individual results may vary

The abdominoplasty is completed through an incision made across the lower abdomen in an area that is usually covered by undergarments, typically at or even below the of a c-section scar. Through this incision, most of the abdominal wall is exposed. With pregnancy, the paired ‘washboard’ or rectus abdominus muscles typically separate from each other (horizontal excess) and lengthen (vertical excess). Sit-ups and other exercises may strengthen the muscles but no amount of sit-ups can bring the abdominal wall back into its normal, unstretched postion. During the abdominoplasty operation, these muscles are plicated, or tightened, with sutures. The rectus muscles are visibly closer together and have better form. This achieves a flatter and tighter abdominal wall.

Next, the excess skin and fat is removed. Usually, this results in removal of all of the skin and fat from just above the belly button down to the incision. This discarded skin tends to contain most or all of the stretch marks and often is inelastic and of poor quality. The upper abdominal skin, which is usually of better quality, more elastic and without stretch marks, is stretched to the lower incision. The closure technique further contours the flanks in order to create a pleasing hour-glass figure in women or a V-shape in men. Finally, the belly button is recreated in an ideal position.
Depending on a patient’s goals, high definition liposuction can be used to highlight the muscular contours of the abdominal wall in order to achieve a more athletic core.

Actual Patient Testimonials Following Tummy Tuck:

“I’ve had an amazing experience with Dr. Ronan and his staff. They are all very knowledgeable and caring. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction done a year ago. I’m so happy with the results! After having two children, I didn’t think I would ever wear a bikini again. now I’m able to wear a bikini with confidence! I highly recommend Dr Ronan!”

Recovering from a Tummy Tuck

With the use of a pain block, pain after surgery is significantly reduced and in some cases eliminated. There may be some swelling and bruising around the area following your tummy tuck, but these issues will subside over time. Depending on the type of work, most patients are ready to return with 1-2 weeks.

Enhancing the Results of Your Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasties are often combined with other procedures discussed such as liposuction of the lower back or thighs, or a breast augmentation and/or lift. Combining different body contouring procedure provides more comprehensive results that can rejuvenate the appearance of your entire figure. Dr. Ronana can recommend any additional treatment that may enhance the results of your tummy tuck during your consultation,

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?

If a patient has some excess but not enough to warrant an abdominoplasty, he or she may be a candidate for the Titan procedure. The Titan is a laser procedure designed to heat the deepest layer of the skin which causes skin tightening. It will not be as dramatic as surgery but is a nice alternative for someone with more modest laxity.

The Cost of a Tummy Tuck

The price of your abdominoplasty can vary depending on the techniques used and whether or not you choose to undergo any additional procedures. Dr. Ronan can address any question you have about financing and price during your consultation.
