Tummy Tuck FAQs

How should I prepare for my Tummy Tuck consultation?

What should I expect on the day of my tummy tuck procedure?

Dr. Lofman will see you before the surgery to mark you in the preoperative area. You will be comfortable during the procedure, like taking a nap. Next, you will wake up in the recovery room.

Will I Have Drains After the Surgery? How long will they stay?

Dr. Lofman typically does not place a drain for a Tummy Tuck procedure.

Do you always repair the muscle?

Dr. Lofman repairs the rectus muscles in nearly every tummy tuck procedure performed.

Will my “abs” show?

The thickness of the abdominal flap will determine whether or not you will see your abs after surgery. Typically those that cannot see the abs before surgery won’t see them after.

Will This Operation Help Me Lose Weight?

While there will be some weight loss after surgery, this is related to the tissue removed.  Most patients feel that this surgery gives them the motivation to continue to eat healthy and lose more weight.

All sutures placed will be absorbable, which do not require removal after surgery.
