Several factors can lead to weak abdominal muscles, extra fat, and loose skin, including weight loss, aging, and numerous pregnancies.

A tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) tightens the abdominal skin and muscles and reduces the unwanted extra skin and fat deposits above and below the belly button.

Dr. Naseebah Nayef performs this surgery for women after having children or losing significant weight to remove excess abdominal skin and reduce stretch marks or scarring from earlier surgeries. Many of Dr. Naseebah’s patients described their tummy tuck results as life-changing since they boosted their confidence and improved their health and lifestyle.

Am I a suitable candidate for this procedure?

The ideal candidates for abdominoplasty are at or near their optimal body weight, are nonsmokers, and have good general health and reasonable expectations for what surgery can do. You can consider getting abdominoplasty if you have:

Your consultation

Dr. Naseebah Nayef, specialist plastic and cosmetic surgeon, is one of the leading female doctors in aesthetic and plastic surgery. She understands her patient’s mental and physical demands, and she is aware of the most effective ways to address those needs. Dr. Naseebah will analyze your body type, medical history, and goals during your consultation appointment. She will weigh these factors before recommending the optimal technique options, which may involve combining multiple operations to get the desired body contour.

How To Prepare For A Tummy Tuck?

If you are a smoker, Dr. Naseebah will advise you to quit at least six weeks before your surgery. Smoking increases the risk of developing chest and wound infections. It may also slow the healing of your wounds; therefore, it may take longer to recuperate from surgery.

Dr. Naseebah will also instruct you to stop using contraceptive pills approximately four weeks before surgery to reduce your risk of blood clots; she’ll recommend an alternative method of contraception.

Dr. Naseebah will perform your abdominoplasty surgery under general anesthesia, meaning you have to abstain from eating and drinking a few hours before the operation.

What To Expect During A Tummy Tuck?

There are several approaches for a tummy tuck; Dr. Naseebah can tell you which option is ideal for you depending on how much fat and skin needs to be removed.

Tummy Tuck Recovery

During recovery, your incisions may be wrapped with dressings or bandages, and your abdomen may be bound in an elastic bandage or compression garment to reduce swelling and promote healing. Additionally, Dr. Naseebah may temporarily insert small, thin tubes beneath the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may accumulate.

Dr. Naseebah and her expert staff will advise you on how to clean and maintain your drains. You may be required to take antibiotics for as long as the drains are in place.

Dr. Naseebah also recommends taking it easy for the first six weeks following abdominoplasty. Avoid activities like stooping or exercising that put too much strain on the incision to keep the wound from opening again.

Will I have visible scars?

The visibility of your scars will depend on the location of your incision and your body’s natural capacity to recover. Dr. Naseebah adopts innovative incision techniques to decrease scarring as much as possible. The majority of scars are either unnoticeable or will fade over time.

Can I have children after surgery?

Although surgery will not restrict you from having children in the future, Dr. Naseebah recommends postponing surgery until you have finished having children. Pregnancy can affect the quality of your tummy tuck results, necessitating corrective surgery.

Can I combine my tummy tuck with liposuction?

Yes! Your surgery can be performed with liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits and define certain parts of the abdomen, resulting in more contoured and toned features.
