What is a plus-sized tummy tuck?

A plus-sized tummy tuck is a term for abdominal surgery performed on heavier women. It produces a remarkable reshaping effect, creating a more hourglass figure. The procedure is 100 percent customized for the individual, and the surgical plan will vary, person to person. Essentially, it involves removing excess skin and fatty tissue, tightening loose abdominal muscles, removing love handles, and creating a flatter, firmer, more sculpted tummy.

What is the surgery? 

Your plus-sized tummy tuck will be performed while you are under general anesthesia. You will not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure and will have no memory of the actual surgery after you wake up. After the anesthesia is administered, your custom surgical plan will be initiated. Every surgery is unique and will reflect the individual condition of the person. 

Excess skin, fat, and tissue will be surgically removed. Stretch marks appearing lower on the abdomen will be removed, or the skin tissues tightened. The underlying muscles are often weak and require surgical tightening to achieve a flatter, firmer structure. The navel structure may be repositioned. The incisions are then closed with meticulously placed sutures, and the surgery is complete.

What is the recovery from a plus-sized tummy tuck?

The recovery from the surgery will take time – you have had major surgery and must plan for several weeks to begin to feel back to normal. You should plan for two weeks away from your usual activities and must avoid vigorous exercise for about six weeks. You will have restricted motion in the early stage of healing but should take gentle walks as soon as possible. Arrange for a friend or family member to stay with you for several days and assist you through the first phase of recovery.
