Tummy Tuck Kalamazoo

Whether you’re wearing an evening dress or swimsuit, a firm, flat tummy not only looks attractive, but it makes you feel confident. Even if you exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, it can still be tough to maintain a tight, young-looking abdomen, particularly after childbirth. If you’ve had enough of a tired-looking tummy and nothing you’ve tried is working to give you the midsection you want, a tummy tuck could be the solution you’re looking for.

How A Tummy Tuck Works

The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States. This procedure can tighten the muscles of the abdomen and help to remove excess fat, leaving a flat tummy. One of the most attractive benefits of tummy tucks is that they improve your self-image immediately by removing loose skin and fat. Although tummy tucks are primarily cosmetic procedures, they do improve your health in the long run. Because an abdominoplasty can help you feel better about yourself, it can also make it easier for you to live an active life.

How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost

According to the 2020 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for a tummy tuck is $6,154. However, this is not the full price. Dr. Holley’s fee for a tummy tuck will include several related expenses, including operating room facilities and anesthesia. Other factors that will impact the cost of your abdominoplasty include:

  • Medical tests
  • Surgeon’s fees
  • Postoperative garments
  • Medication and prescriptions 

Typically, health insurance plans do not cover tummy tuck surgery or any complications that may arise from the procedure. However, it’s worth investing the money in yourself, and you may, in some cases, be able to get financing.

Am I A Good Candidate For A Tummy Tuck?

As with any procedure, a tummy tuck is not suitable for all patients. You must consult a tummy tuck surgeon to determine if tummy tuck surgery is right for you. You are a good candidate for abdominoplasty if you are in generally good health, have realistic expectations for tummy tuck surgery, and if you suffer from stretching of the abdominal skin and soft tissues as a result of significant weight loss. 

What is the Abdominoplasty Like?

Because Dr. Holley knows that there is no “one size fits all” tummy tuck, he offers several different abdominoplasty options. During your consultation, you and Dr. Holley will decide which tummy tuck is the perfect one for you.

What Results Can I Expect?

You will be able to see the initial results of your tummy tuck within 7-10 days. Bear in mind that you may not see the optimal results until 3-6 months after your procedure. You won’t have to worry about visible scars from your abdominoplasty because they will be hidden within your bikini line and will gradually fade over time.
