At our Fort Worth, Texas, practice, we see tummy tuck surgery patients from Abilene, Mansfield, Dallas, Plano, and beyond. These women and men come to Dr. Camp with similar concerns, including excess skin, stretch marks, and weakened abdominal muscles. When these are present, no amount of exercise and dieting can produce the flat, toned midsection that you want. Dr. Camp, a board-certified plastic surgeon and body contouring specialist, is known for getting results that go beyond his patients’ expectations.

What Happens During a Tummy Tuck Consultation?

Dr. Camp creates a surgical plan for your tummy tuck based on 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 and whether you may benefit from a mini tummy tuck are all discussed during your consultation.

Tummy Tuck vs. Liposuction

People who want to renew the appearance of their abdominal area sometimes don’t know if they need a tummy tuck or liposuction. Here is a comparison:

Tummy Tuck

  • Removes stretched, sagging skin
  • Repairs separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
  • Reshapes the bellybutton


  • Removes fat pockets from the belly, waist, hips, and other areas
  • Does not tighten skin

Many patients benefit from a combination of these procedures. People who have a belly bulge caused by excess fat and do not have lax skin may be candidates for liposuction on its own.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

Dr. Camp begins abdominoplasty surgery by making a horizontal incision just above the pubic area—low enough so even a low-cut bikini bottom can easily conceal it. He also makes an incision around the navel to remove excess skin above the bellybutton, 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 to provide patients with excellent results that often surpass what they thought was possible.

What Is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

Patients whose skin retains most of its elasticity and who don’t have stretch marks or excess skin above the bellybutton may be good candidates for a mini tummy tuck. 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 bellybutton and makes more limited repairs to the abdominal muscles.

What Is an Extended Tummy Tuck?

Some men and women considering a tummy tuck also have excess skin on their hips and the sides of their lower backs—especially if they’ve lost significant weight following bariatric surgery or semaglutide treatment. In these cases, Dr. Camp may recommend an extended tummy tuck, which involves making a horizontal incision that stretches across the lower abdomen and the side of the lower back. A vertical incision is also sometimes. Using these incisions, Dr. Camp creates truly transformative results. He often includes liposuction to remove pockets of fat and create smooth contours. An extended tummy tuck requires a slightly longer recovery than a full tummy tuck.

Combining Procedures

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 sometimes performed along with  breast enhancement as part of a  mommy makeover.

How Long Is Recovery From a Tummy Tuck?

The time needed to fully heal after a tummy tuck varies between patients, but most take about a month to 6 weeks before they feel like they did before the surgery. It can take several weeks to months for swelling to resolve fully.

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

Tips for a Successful Tummy Tuck Recovery

It’s important to follow the postoperative instructions Dr. Camp provides to help ensure your recovery experience is as comfortable as possible. Abdominoplasty is major surgery, and it’s important not to push yourself physically before you’re completely healed. Here are some tips to help your recovery go smoothly:

  • Arrange for help. 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 bathing, feeding, and clothing them.
  • Set up for success. Prepare a quiet spot at home with a comfortable place to rest and everything you need within reach. Make sure you have meals covered and you take enough time off work.
  • Adjust your sleeping spot. You will need to keep your abdomen hunched over for about 10 to 14 days, so plan to sleep in a recliner or with post-surgical cushions.
  • Prepare what to wear. Have comfortable clothes on hand that are easy to put on and take off, such as pants with an elastic waist.
  • Minimize swelling. Wear your abdominal compression garment as directed to reduce swelling.
  • Stay ahead of the pain. Minimize discomfort by taking prescription medication at the recommended intervals.
  • Move your body. Get up and walk around as soon as possible after surgery, even if it’s just from your bed to the bathroom. Movement promotes healing and reduces the risk of complications such as blood clots.
  • Don’t overdo it. Avoid bending, pulling, lifting, or doing anything that could strain your sutures early in the recovery process.

Tummy Tuck Frequently Asked Questions

How much weight do you lose with tummy tuck surgery?

While tummy tuck surgery restores firm abdominal contours, most patients don’t see a significant change on the scale.

How painful is the recovery period?

Discomfort is typically moderate to significant after a tummy tuck, especially for the first few days. When taken consistently as directed, prescription pain medication is usually enough to keep discomfort to a minimum. Most patients consider the results of the surgery worth the early challenges of tummy tuck recovery.

Does a tummy tuck really make your stomach flat?

Yes. Once the swelling goes away, people who have had a full tummy tuck can expect their stomach to be firmer and flatter.

Should I lose weight before getting a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck is not weight loss surgery; you should reach your goal weight and maintain it for several months before the procedure. Getting within 10 to 15 pounds of the desired weight is fine. You should avoid weight fluctuations after undergoing a tummy tuck because that can stretch the abdominal tissues and possibly require revision surgery.

Can you be too old for a tummy tuck?

Your overall health, regardless of age, is more important than how old you are. The age span of tummy tuck patients at Dr. Camp’s practice is quite wide. Younger patients tend to recover more quickly than older patients, but that doesn’t mean getting a tummy tuck after 50 or 60 is out of the question. It’s just good to know what to expect.

How long does a tummy tuck last?

Tummy tuck results can last indefinitely when patients maintain their weight and do not become pregnant.

Will a tummy tuck get rid of a “belly pooch?

Many women may have a lower belly pooch after having children. This is often caused by a condition called diastasis recti, which results when the abdominal muscles are separated during pregnancy and remain that way after a woman gives birth. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Camp tightens these muscles, in addition to removing excess skin, eliminating the pooch, and creating a flatter, smoother stomach.
