Tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) are a frequently done procedure to tighten the abdominal wall and remove loose skin. It can be done alone, or with other procedures such as liposuction.
The cases and results below are based on Dr. Gutowski’s own patients. They are a representative sample of the hundreds of tummy tucks that he personally performed. Results are based on each individual patient’s goals, expectations and body proportions. Dr. Gutowski is experienced with the following types of tummy tucks: Mini tummy tuck, standard tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck, circumferential tummy tuck, corset tummy tuck and tummy tuck with liposuction (lipoabdominoplasty). He is also offers a “no drain tummy tuck” for most patients. If a hernia is present, it can be fixed at the same time.
A standard tummy tuck procedure can last between 1.5 and 2.5 hours and can be done using sedation anesthesia for a faster recovery.
