Tummy Tuck

Model

Women and men aspire equally to have a toned abdominal area, both for optimal looks and overall comfort. Weakened abdominal muscles, sagging skin and excessive fat in this area, whether as a result of genes, pregnancy or extreme weight loss, can diminish your self-image and make certain types of clothing off-limits. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, helps Boston, MA men and women firm their abdominal areas, tighten lax muscles and rid the area of excess fat and skin.

In your private consultation with Dr. Guenther in Boston, he will answer all your tummy tuck questions and work with you to determine which course of action will best benefit you. His advanced surgical techniques allow him to maximize your satisfaction with your newly toned body.

Advanced Techniques & Options

In order to respond to your specific requirements, Dr. Guenther offers all forms of abdominoplasty. He will adapt his highly refined techniques to fulfill your unique surgery goals. For his female patients, Dr. Guenther often combines this procedure with breast augmentation or breast lift — a package surgery known as a mommy makeover that also sometimes incorporates labiaplasty.

Dr. Guenther routinely uses liposuction during abdominoplasty, a procedure known as lipoabdominoplasty. By suctioning out pockets of fat, Dr. Guenther ensures the abdomen is evenly contoured. The addition of liposuction improves the results dramatically without requiring any additional recovery time.

If the procedure is a mini tummy tuck, which is appropriate for some patients, Dr. Guenther makes a single, horizontal incision just above the pubic area. However, the majority of abdominoplasty patients are best served by a full tummy tuck, meaning Dr. Guenther makes an additional incision around the navel.

In addition to the removal of excess skin and fat, a tummy tuck involves tightening stretched and weakened abdominal muscles. Dr. Guenther takes extra care to keep the incision, and the resultant scar, lower on the abdomen. Because of this incision location, the scar will remain hidden by underwear or a bikini bottom.

In a full tummy tuck, one incision encircles the navel, while another U- or V-shaped incision stretches from hip to hip. Dr. Guenther repairs abdominal muscles stretched and weakened by pregnancy or excess weight.

Dr. Guenther uses internal sutures to tighten the abdominal muscles, and uses liposuction to contour the area. He removes excess skin and then creates an aesthetically pleasing navel. He closes the incision with advanced suturing techniques. The resulting scar is shown here on the right.

Dr. Guenther ensures a natural navel shape and position after abdominoplasty, and he takes pride in camouflaging the scars to conceal them. Many tummy tuck methods distort or even obscure the navel; because it is our only innate scar, Dr. Guenther knows the importance of maintaining its natural appearance.

Healing & Enjoying Your New Look

After the surgery, you will be placed in a compression garment to be worn continuously for a few weeks. If the surgery incorporates drains, they will be removed within a few days at the clinic.

The majority of Dr. Guenther's abdominoplasty patients will spend a single evening under medical supervision for optimal safety and comfort. You will typically be able to return to your normal routine within 2 weeks, although Dr. Guenther will advise you not to lift more than 10 pounds for the 6 weeks following your surgery. You may resume abdominal exercises and sports after 3 months.

The amount of excess skin will determine the length of your scar. Mini-abdominoplasty will create a small scar just below your waistline; a more extensive tummy tuck surgery with body lift will result in a scar extending around the lower torso.
