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.
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 Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
Dr. Camp begins abdominoplasty surgery by making a horizontal incision just above the pubic area—low enough so it can be easily concealed by even a low-cut bikini bottom. 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. 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.

The time needed to fully heal after a tummy tuck varies for every patient, but most people take about a month to 6 weeks before they feel like they did before the surgery. Abdominoplasty is major surgery, and it’s important not to push yourself physically before you’re completely healed. It can take several weeks to months for swelling to resolve fully.
It’s important to follow the postoperative instructions Dr. Camp provides to help ensure your recovery experience is as comfortable as possible. Getting up and walking around as soon as possible after surgery, even if it’s just from your bed to the bathroom, promotes healing and reduces the risk of complications such as blood clots.
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.
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 $14,500. 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.

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.
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.
