Tummy Tuck Q & A
What’s a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure in which Dr. Ku removes loose tissue around your belly to tighten and flatten it. In the process, he repairs separated abdominal wall muscles and reconstructs a natural belly button appearance.
Is a tummy tuck right for me?
A tummy tuck is perfect for those who have a protruding abdomen, despite their best efforts at diet and exercise. If you have extra loose skin and stretch marks on your abdomen from pregnancy or significant weight loss, you can get a tummy tuck to improve their appearance.
For the best results, before you have tummy tuck surgery, you should be:
- In good overall health
- At a stable body weight
- Not planning to have any more children
A tummy tuck isn't a weight loss solution. It’s important to remember the procedure doesn't replace a healthy diet and exercise program.
How do I choose a doctor to perform a tummy tuck?
When considering which trusted surgeon to choose for your tummy tuck, it's important to find a doctor with the right qualifications and personality for you. First, your surgeon should be board-certified in plastic surgery with extensive surgery training.
Other determining factors include experience, results, specialty, and personality.
Your doctor should have adequate experience performing successful tummy tucks. Tummy tucks are one of Dr. Ku’s most practiced surgeries, and he prides himself on attaining the most natural-looking results.
Your doctor’s before and after pictures should give you a good idea of what kind of results you can expect. Dr. Ku has an impeccable talent for performing tummy tucks with minimal scarring, excellent results, and natural belly-button placement. It won’t even look like you’ve had surgery.
A plastic surgeon with advanced training in tummy tucks like Dr. Ku provides the most specialized care. As Dr. Ku’s primary focus, he’s handled many cases and mastered every aspect of the procedure.
You should be able to trust your surgeon and feel comfortable discussing any concerns you may have. Although personality isn’t necessarily a reflection of their expertise, it's essential to have a mutually amicable relationship with your surgeon.
