Tummy Tuck in Atlanta with Michael N. Mirzabeigi, MD

Tighten your tummy

Your body is capable of amazing things. But there are also some issues that your body cannot fix on its own. Atlanta's board-certified Michael N. Mirzabeigi, MD, wants to help you treat yourself to a tummy tuck that can trim down the unwanted extra skin and fat around the midsection. He strives to deliver the best Tummy Tuck Atlanta has to offer. Schedule a consultation at Mirzabeigi Atlanta Plastic Surgery to learn how a tummy tuck can help you reach your body goals in ways diet and exercise cannot.

What is a Drainless Tummy Tuck?

Lean and Toned

Even if the rest of the body is lean and toned, pregnancy, considerable weight reduction, age, and genetics can leave some people with excess fat and skin around the abdomen. This persistent belly bulge can be aggravating, especially when no amount of diet or exercise appears to help.

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical operation that removes extra abdominal fat and skin. A tummy tuck may help restore muscles that have become weaker or divided due to pregnancy or trauma, depending on the individual. As a result, the abdomen is firmer, flatter, and more sculpted. Dr. Mirzabeigi utilizes the most modern and innovative techniques such as the drainless tummy tuck. The drainless tummy tuck avoids the use of post-operative surgical drains allowing for a faster and easier recovery. Not every patient is a candidate for the drainless technique. Dr. Mirzabeigi will carefully analyze each Atlanta Tummy Tuck patient and determine a plan that is specific to every individual.

What are the benefits of a Tummy Tuck?

A Firmer Core

Without a doubt, abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, provides numerous cosmetic benefits making your stomach tight, smooth, and younger-looking. In reality, a tummy tuck can also offer medical benefits, particularly when it becomes a necessary corrective surgical operation for individuals with some instances. Because tummy tucks tighten your weakened abdominal muscles, you will see improved posture and decreased back pain. With a firmer core, you'll look better and feel better too.

Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck?

A Healthier You

The ideal candidate for a tummy tuck is someone who is at their desired weight, is not planning to lose anymore, and is not having any more children. If you are relatively healthy and committed to a healthy lifestyle, a tummy tuck will be successful and it will last a long time. To find out if a tummy tuck is the best option for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Mirzabeigi.

Your Tummy Tuck Procedure

Feel confident

A comprehensive tummy tuck requires a horizontal incision between the pubic hairline and the belly button. The amount of extra skin will affect the shape and length of the incision.

The underlying weaker abdominal muscles are restored once the abdominal skin is raised. To remove extra skin in the upper abdomen, a second incision around the navel may be required. The top abdomen skin is drawn down, excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is sutured together. There is a new aperture for the belly button.

Tummy Tuck Recovery

Take a Break

During your Atlanta Tummy Tuck consultation, Dr. Mirzabeigi will help you come up with a timetable for your rehabilitation so you have enough time to recuperate and focus on your healing. Then, you can make the necessary preparations and ensure that you are adequately prepared.

Your drains will be left in place for one to three weeks following surgery. While your drains are in place, you will most likely need to take an antibiotic and an anticoagulant. You will need to wear an abdominal binder for around two to four weeks. This helps to prevent fluid buildup and supports your abdomen. While the recovery period for a mini-tummy tuck is usually shorter, you will still need to avoid heavy exercise for at least six weeks. This includes any strenuous activity or heavy lifting.

Tummy Tuck Results

A More Slender Feeling

Swelling and your inability to stand fully erect may mask the final benefits of tummy tuck surgery until internal recovery is complete. Within a week or two, you should be standing tall and confident in your new smaller profile. Following your tummy tuck, you will have a flatter, firmer abdomen contour that is more proportionate to your body type and weight.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks?

There are dangers, as with any procedure. Although problems are uncommon, they can include infection, delayed healing, bleeding under the skin flap, or blood clots. Complications are more common if you have poor circulation, diabetes, heart, lung, or liver illness.

Do I need to have someone drive me home because of anesthesia?

It's critical to arrange for assistance for at least the first day or two after surgery. You will be given pain medicine and will have limited mobility, so you will be unable to drive yourself home.
