Learn More About Hourglass Tummy Tuck Surgery
Dr. Shienbaum offers the sought-after hourglass tummy tuck, an abdominoplasty procedure that accentuates the curves for an hourglass figure. This involves a combination of Tummy Tuck, LipoSculpture, and Brazilian Butt Lift. During the hourglass tummy tuck, fat is removed from the abdominal area and used to enhance the buttocks. At the same time, excess skin is removed from the abdomen and loose tissue is tightened, resulting in a total body transformation. Dr. Shienbaum has performed so many hourglass tummy tucks that is has become his signature procedure at Brandon Plastic Surgery.
In a lipo-abdominoplasty procedure, patients initially undergo circumferential liposuction to remove excess fat from the abdomen, hips, back and flanks. Dr. Shienbaum will often utilize Vaser ultrasonic technique for areas of stubborn fat and fine contouring. Only with this combined procedure can the traditional Tummy Tuck achieve a truly spectacular result.
In Tampa, will liposuction be performed with my Tummy Tuck?
Yes. For many years, Dr. Shienbaum has performed his Lipo-Abdominoplasty procedure that includes extensive liposuction of the hip love handles, protruding thighs, and redundant back rolls. This combining of procedures allows for the dramatic body sculpting and contouring results seen in his before and after photographs.
A Mini-abdominoplasty is often performed for problems areas located below the belly button. Small areas of lower abdominal fat deposits or sagging skin can be addressed with a much smaller incision. The Mini Tummy Tuck also allows for a much quicker recovery time.
The Hourglass Tummy Tuck provides a stunning curvaceous body silhouette by combining three procedures into one: Tummy Tuck, LipoSculpture, and Brazilian Butt Lift. This has become Dr. Shienbaum’s Signature procedure at Brandon Plastic Surgery.
One can always try more diet and exercise. But no amount of abdominal work can tighten loosened fascia or reunite separated rectus musculature. Some plastic surgeons in the Tampa areas may suggest Liposuction. However, hanging flabby excess abdominal skin will not be improved with liposuction. The stubborn, resistant love handle fat remains a perpetual struggle. Unfortunately, nothing can compete with the total sculpting achieved by a well performed and executed Lipo-Abdominoplasty body contouring procedure.
The most talked about risks are an anesthesia reaction, bleeding, hematoma or seroma formation, scarring, sensation loss, blood clots and an unsatisfactory cosmetic appearance.
However, most concerns usually reflect the potential swelling, discomfort and recovery time associated with an Abdominoplasty procedure. Long-term naval appearance, scar position, and the overall body contour are the most relevant concerns.
You will have to limit strenuous abdominal activity after your procedure. Tummy Tucks performed in the Lakeland, Brandon, and Riverview areas usually require several weeks for recovery. However, Dr. Shienbaum encourages early walking, light treadmill and elliptical work and other lower body exercise as soon as possible. This increases circulation and helps prevent stasis and swelling.
The average cost of a tummy tuck is $5,798, according to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, but tummy tuck surgery cost can vary widely. To determine a more accurate cost for the Tampa area, you should contact our office. We can help provide an estimate and go over any additional fees you may pay.
Because the tummy tuck procedure is personalized, recovery time will differ from patient to patient. However, many people are able to resume everyday activities after 2-4 weeks and should be able to stand up straight within a couple of days. Any tight or tugging sensations at the treatment site should be gone by 4-6 weeks, although an occasional twinge of pain may occur even after a few months.
A doctor’s board-certification by the American Society of Plastic Surgeon is the best indicator of appropriate training in the field of plastic surgery. A Tummy Tuck procedure and the more advanced Lipo-Abdominoplasty technique require extensive time, dedication and experience to achieve expertise. Make certain your surgeon can demonstrate the results and competence you expect.
