Tummy Tuck

Restore Your Youthful Physique with a Tummy Tuck

Do you keep losing the fight to a flatter, well-toned abdomen, despite the time you spend exercising and watching what you eat? Dr. Joseph Jensen may be able to help you win the battle of the bulge with his safe, state-of-the-art tummy tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty. The tummy tuck is a surgical option perfect for removing excess skin and fat, and restoring weakened or separated muscles affecting your abdominal profile. You can have a flatter, firmer abdominal contour in no time to match your body type and weight.*

Why Get a Tummy Tuck?

Anyone can encounter a sagging or loose abdomen from age, heredity, pregnancy, surgery, or significant fluctuations in weight. Abdominoplasty removes excess and loose abdominal skin. Abdominal muscles can be tightened if needed. If a patient has skin laxity, bulging or loose abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck is the only procedure which can treat those problems.

What Does a Tummy Tuck Involve?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a major surgical procedure performed in an outpatient surgical facility under general anesthesia. Dr. Jensen is a board certified general surgeon with extensive training and experience as a practicing surgeon in Davis County for more than 13 years.

First, a bikini line incision is made and carried down to the muscles. The fat is then separated from the muscles up to the ribs so the skin and fat can be pulled down until appropriately tightened, at which point, the excess skin and fat is removed. If needed, the abdominal muscles can be tightened once they’re exposed. A small incision is made around the belly button, so that it can remain in its place. The belly button is then sutured in place through the now tightened skin. The bikini line incision is then closed. People go home about two hours after the procedure.

What Can I Expect Afterwards?
You’ll spend about a week recovering at home. People usually return to sedentary jobs one to three weeks after the procedure. You’ll need to be careful with any strenuous activities for up to six weeks following the procedure. If you maintain your weight, your tummy will likely remain tight the rest of your life.

Why Wait?
If you’ve been suffering with a spare tire or muffin top, it’s time to take action so you can enjoy a firmer, flatter mid-section. Contact us today to find out if a tummy tuck procedure is right for you.
