The Refine Institute offers tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) to the residents of Charlotte, Concord, and the surrounding communities in North Carolina and South Carolina.
“The approach to abdominoplasty or tummy tuck has evolved to offer camouflaged incisions and improved body contouring.”
– Dr. Pratt
Pregnancies, extreme weight loss, and aging can produce excess abdominal tissue resistant to diet and exercise. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can remove excess tissue and tighten the abdominal wall. Additionally, the less-invasive mini tummy tuck requires a smaller incision and does not require the naval to be moved. Typically a horizontal incision is made just above the pubic hair line, leaving a scar that will be relatively hidden and will fade with time. This procedure can be used alone or in combination with liposuction to achieve the results you desire. With a healthy lifestyle, the results of an abdominoplasty are usually long lasting.
Although many may offer this procedure, its successful outcome is dependent on the skill of the surgeon. Dr. Pratt, who has been specialty trained in this area, will work with you to achieve your desired outcome and will advise you on which procedure is right for you.
The Tummy Tuck Procedure
Dr. Pratt begins his tummy tuck surgeries by making an incision between the naval and pubic line. This incision allows for the removal of excess skin, tissue and fat. Once the excess is removed, the weakened abdominal muscles are repaired and brought to the desired stomach flatness.
Swelling and discomfort along the incision may occur early on but can be controlled with oral medication. Walking is encouraged, but bending and lifting should be avoided for the first week. You will be able to return to normal activities, other than heavy lifting and contact sports, within a few weeks. Your final result will take several months to be evident.
