The goal of a flat, toned abdomen motivates many of people to hit the gym or politely decline that slice of homemade pie. But sometimes, diet and exercise aren’t sufficient to achieve the body of your dreams, so Dr. John V. Williams at the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge in Baton Rouge and Alexandria, Louisiana, uses the most advanced techniques in drain-free Tummy Tuck surgery. If you’re considering a Tummy Tuck, call or click to book an appointment today.
Tummy Tuck surgery removes excess fat and skin from your abdomen and restores weakened muscles, creating a smooth and firm tummy. Dr. Williams performs both mini Tummy Tucks and full Tummy Tucks.
This procedure targets the lower half of your abdomen, below your belly button. If you have excess skin that causes a little pooch of fat between your belly button and pubic area, a mini Tummy Tuck may be right for you. Dr. Williams doesn’t move your belly button during a mini Tummy Tuck.
Tummy Tuck surgery creates a firm and smooth abdomen. It’s not a procedure to help you lose weight but may help restore skin tone after weight loss.
Men and women get Tummy Tuck surgery for a variety of reasons:
Drains are uncomfortable and often induce anxiety, but drain-free Tummy Tucks allow you to return to normal activities quickly.
Dr. Williams offers drain-free Tummy Tuck surgery, which uses TissuGlu, a surgical adhesive that glues the tissue layers of your abdomen together, reducing the need for drains after your Tummy Tuck. Using TissuGlu helps speed up recovery time.
Dr. Williams provides detailed instructions about the care that follows a Tummy Tuck. You should be able to return to work after about two weeks, as long as the job doesn’t involve excessive lifting, pushing, or pulling activity.
