Tummy Tuck

At our Fort Worth, Texas, practice, the women and men who visit Dr. Camp for tummy tuck surgery from Abilene, Mansfield, and beyond have similar concerns. Those usually include excess skin, stretch marks, and weakened abdominal muscles that prevent them from having the flat, toned midsection that they want, even for patients who exercise and watch what they eat. Tummy tuck surgery addresses those concerns and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Camp, a body contouring specialist, is known for getting results that meet and exceed his patients’ expectations.

What Happens During a Tummy Tuck Consultation?

Dr. Camp creates a surgical plan for your tummy tuck based on both a physical examination and a conversation about your aesthetic goals. The consultation is the time when Dr. Camp discusses the procedure in detail and explains your options. The specific incision location and length, in addition to whether you may benefit from a mini tummy tuck, are all discussed during your consultation.

In some cases, Dr. Camp recommends combining liposuction with a tummy tuck to sculpt the midsection and create a feminine, hourglass figure for women. A tummy tuck is also sometimes performed along with breast enhancement as part of a mommy makeover.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

A tummy tuck begins with a horizontal incision made as low as possible, usually just above the pubic area so it can be easily concealed by even a low-cut bikini bottom. In a full tummy tuck, Dr. Camp makes another incision around the navel to remove excess skin above the belly button, which is repositioned to an aesthetically pleasing level. A full tummy tuck removes most stretch marks in the abdominal area. Dr. Camp tightens the abdominal muscles stretched by pregnancy or weight gain and removes excess skin before closing the incision. Depending on the procedure’s complexity, he may have you spend the night at the surgery center or allow you to go home the day of surgery.

Few plastic surgeons in Texas have aesthetic surgery training equal to Dr. Camp’s. His advanced training and experience enable him provide patients with satisfying results that often surpass what they thought was possible.

What Is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

The mini tummy tuck is an option for patients whose skin retains most of its elasticity and who don’t have stretch marks or excess skin above the belly button. In this procedure, Dr. Camp makes a shorter incision above the pubic region, similar to what’s used for a cesarean section birth. He removes excess skin below the belly button and makes more limited repairs to the abdominal muscles.

How Long Is Recovery From a Tummy Tuck?

Within a month to 6 weeks, tummy tuck incisions and abdominal muscle tightening involved in the surgery should be well healed. Because it is major surgery, it’s important to be patient with the healing process. It can take several weeks to months for the swelling to completely resolve. It’s important to follow the postoperative instructions Dr. Camp provides to help ensure your recovery experience is as comfortable as possible.

Dr. Camp recommends getting up and walking as soon as possible after surgery, even if it’s just from your bed to the bathroom. Walking promotes healing and reduces the risk of complications.

Because many tummy tuck patients have young children at home, it’s important to have a support system in place before undergoing surgery. It will be a few weeks before you can lift children and you’ll need help with bathing, feeding, and clothing them.

Complications following a tummy tuck are rare, but we encourage you to call with any questions or concerns.

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?

As you can see below in the body contouring procedures pricing, the cost of a tummy tuck combined with liposuction at our Fort Worth practice starts at $14,000. The cost of your tummy tuck will depend on the extent of the procedure needed. Dr. Camp may recommend a mini tummy tuck or an extended tummy tuck, which involves a longer incision. Dr. Camp discusses all of your options during the consultation.
