Your surgery will be performed at our on-site surgical facility by Dr. Olivier Deigni. The procedure will take approximately three hours. You will not be in a condition to drive following your surgery, and you should arrange for a ride home ahead of time.
At the start of your tummy tuck, Dr. Deigni will carefully perform strategic incisions in the abdominal area. We will do our best to conceal your scars as much as possible. Through these incisions, the desired amount of excess skin and fat will be removed. After all the desired fat is removed, any separation of the abdominal muscles will be repaired. This procedure will give you an overall slimmer, trimmer, and more toned tummy.
Your recovery will depend on your age, health condition, and other factors. During your initial consultation for your Cypress tummy tuck procedure, we will give you personalized guidelines to help you optimally recover. It is in your best interest to follow these directions outlined by our staff. In general, you can expect a recovery time of two to three weeks, during which you may be required to wear a compression garment. Depending on your individual needs, you may be required to wear your compression garment for up to three months.
Most patients can enjoy their results for at least ten years. If you take good care of your body with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and avoid smoking, you can enjoy your results even longer, perhaps even permanently.
Dr. Deigni specializes in the drainless tummy tuck. This surgical advancement eliminates the need to insert fluid drains in your body after surgery, which can enhance the comfort and quality of life for our patients. Be sure to discuss it with Dr. Deigni during your initial consultation.
