The Tummy Tuck Procedure

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, encompasses a range of techniques aimed at removing excess skin and fat and recontouring the body from the ribs to the pubic bone. Dr. Olding skillfully addresses the changes caused by aging, pregnancy, or significant weight changes, through procedures that may involve skin and fat removal, muscle tightening, or both.

Depending on the extent of skin removal, incisions may vary in length, and in some cases, a new belly button is repositioned to enhance the abdominal silhouette. Dr. Olding offers both standard and mini-abdominoplasty options, tailored to meet the specific needs of each patient.

Tummy Tuck Candidates

Candidates for a tummy tuck include individuals seeking to remedy the loose skin or protruding abdomen that persists despite a healthy lifestyle. This procedure is particularly effective for those affected by pregnancy or significant weight loss transformations. During a thorough consultation, Dr. Olding evaluates your health and aesthetic concerns to ensure your suitability for the procedure and that the potential for results aligns with your goals.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Tummy tuck procedures with Dr. Olding may be performed as outpatient or inpatient surgeries, depending on the complexity and individual medical considerations. Patients are placed under general anesthesia for comfort, with the duration of the surgery varying based on the extent of the procedure. Patients should plan for transportation arrangements for the day of surgery and have a comfortable recovery space prepared for their return home.

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful. After several consultations with other plastic surgeons I settled on Dr. Olding because I believed he was the most qualified and showed the best judgment while explaining my procedure to me. He was also recommended to me by my trusted dermatologist so that factored into my decision as well.
