What is a Tummy tuck or Abdominoplasty?
An Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a type of plastic surgery designed to firm and tighten the abdomen. This type of plastic surgery is most commonly requested by women who have an excess of loose abdominal skin and/or abdominal muscles that have been weakened by pregnancy or age.
What to expect during an Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) consultation?
During your plastic surgery consultation at Youthful Images of Connecticut, Dr. Felice will review your medical history, examine your abdomen, discuss your expectations, review the Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure, discuss the recovery period, review other patient photographs and take your picture so that Dr. Felice can review with you the plans he has for your new look. Finally, we will discuss the cost of the procedure. In addition, we offer several financing plans if that may be of interest to you.
Dr. Felice feels that each individual must have a specific approach. Some patients have loose skin but excellent muscle tone; others may have less skin but poor muscle tone; while others may have both loose skin and poor muscle tone. In any case, creating the proper plan is key to a good result. In addition, Dr. Felice utilized pain pumps that help minimize the pain in the recovery period.
