Choosing Tummy Tuck from Dr. Fisher
During your initial tummy tuck consultation, Dr. Fisher will spend as much time as necessary to make sure you are comfortable with the procedure. He will perform a thorough examination of your abdomen and let you know what he thinks is possible. Dr. Fisher believes strongly in establishing realistic expectations with his patients.
The best candidates for the tummy tuck procedure are in fairly good shape but have abdominal skin and muscle laxity that does not respond to diet or exercise. In some cases, patients who think they need a tummy tuck are better candidates for liposuction. Women who are considering having more children in the future or patients who want to lose more weight may want to postpone their abdominoplasty.
Your Surgery & Recovery
Most tummy tuck procedures are done on an outpatient basis under a general anesthesia. The procedure can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to complete but could vary depending on your needs. In some cases, abdominoplasty is one of a combination of procedures performed for body contouring after weight loss. It can also be helpful for moms who are interested in combining their tummy tuck with breast implants in Nashville .
Prior to your tummy tuck, Dr. Fisher will give you preoperative and postoperative instructions to follow. To be prepared for your tummy tuck and make your recovery process easier, we suggest you follow these instructions closely. Should you have any questions, make sure to contact the office immediately.
The amount of time you will need to recover from your tummy tuck will vary based on the extent of the surgery. You will be up and walking the day after surgery and should be able to resume limited activities after about a week. Full recovery may take up to 4 weeks. Dr. Fisher will cover the recovery process in detail with you prior to your surgery.
