Fort Worth Tummy Tuck surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients in Fort Worth with loose tissues after pregnancy or individuals with sagging skin after major weight loss.

Tummy Tuck operations vary in scope and are frequently subdivided into categories. In Fort Worth depending on the extent of the surgery, a complete Abdominoplasty can take 1 to 5 hours. A partial Abdominoplasty (Mini-Tuck) can be completed between 1 to 2 hours.

A Tummy Tuck in Fort Worth involves: An incision is made from hip to hip just above the pubic area. Another incision is made to free the navel from the surrounding skin. The skin is detached from the abdominal wall to reveal the muscles and fascia to be tightened. The muscle fascia wall is tightened with sutures. The remaining skin and fat are tightened by removing the excess and closing the defect. The old belly button stalk is brought out through a new hole and sutured into place. Liposuction is often used to refine the transition zones of the abdominal sculpture. A dressing and sometimes a compression garment are applied and any excess fluid from the site is drained.
