What is a Tummy Tuck?

A Tummy Tuck – also known as Abdominoplasty – is a surgical procedure designed to repair abdominal walls that may have been damaged by aging, weight gain, and/or pregnancy. The goal of the tummy tuck is to fix the abdominal walls so that they have a much more flat appearance. The Tummy Tuck allows patients to achieve a smoother, flatter, and more contoured tummy region.

Candidates for a Tummy Tuck

Candidates for a Tummy Tuck may have difficulty getting a flatter tummy as a result of pregnancy, aging, or weight fluctuations. All candidates should be healthy nonsmokers with realistic expectations for their procedure.

How Does It Work?

During a complete tummy tuck, Dr. Bull makes an incision across the lower abdomen in the bikini line. Using this incision the abdominal muscles are tightened using sutures to give a more normal abdominal wall position and a better shape.

Next, the excess skin and fat are removed. This skin usually contains most of the stretch marks caused during pregnancy. The remaining skin from the upper abdomen is then repositioned to close the incision. The belly button is relocated in an ideal position that is in proportion with the new shape.

For a partial or “mini” Tummy Tuck, the incision is shorter and the belly button will remain in place. The “mini” Tummy Tuck primarily focusing on the abdominal area below the belly button.

What Results Will I See?*

Many of Dr. Bull’s Chicago tummy tuck patients are pleased to learn that the results of Abdominoplasty are long-lasting, barring major weight gain.

“I had a tummy tuck with liposuction done by Dr Bull. I am totally happy with my results. I am only 6 weeks post op and I have already dropped 2 sizes in my jeans. After loosing 57 lbs. I was having a hard time buying pants because of my waistline. If the waist fit, the legs were baggy and made me look heavy. My pouchy belly was just awful. So glad to see it gone forever! I feel 20 yrs younger. Dr Bull and his staff are excellent.”*
