Many patients approach Deigni Plastic Surgery because they struggle with unwanted and persistent weight gain in the midsection. Because this weight gain cannot be solved with diet and exercise alone, we understand your frustration. You are not alone if you are disappointed with weight gain or loose skin and tissue in your midsection.

These issues can be corrected with a tummy tuck in Sugar Land from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Olivier Deigni. We offer several kinds of body contouring procedures and could help you choose the one that will deliver the results you want.

When Does Abdominal Weight Gain Become a Medical Concern?

Abdominal weight gain is a pressing cosmetic concern for many of our patients. It is often hard to control with diet and exercise, and it can be caused by several factors, sometimes simultaneously, including:

  • Age
  • Diet
  • Genetics
  • Lifestyle
  • Pregnancy
  • Chronic health conditions

Stubborn abdominal weight gain can be a medical issue if left unaddressed. Excess abdominal weight gain can be dangerous and lead to several chronic health conditions and issues, including heart disease, diabetes, liver issues, certain cancers.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

Medically known as an abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck in Sugar Land is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the cosmetic appearance of the abdomen. It improves the look of the abdominal region by removing unwanted skin, tissue, and fat. It could also help enhance muscle definition in the abdomen and make it look more toned.

Benefits and Ideal Candidates of a Tummy Tuck

Patients can benefit from a tummy tuck by our expert medical team if they experience the following concerns:

  • Loose, sagging abdominal skin
  • Stretch marks and other markings on the tummy
  • Excess and stubborn visceral fat in the abdominal area
  • Loss of muscle tone and definition in the abdominal area
  • Chronic health conditions that can be exacerbated by excess fat

A tummy tuck in Sugar Land from Dr. Olivier Deigni could help you address all these concerns and more. You will be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you:

  • Are an overall healthy adult
  • Are generally unhappy with the appearance of your midsection
  • Seek to improve the cosmetic appearance of their abdominal region
  • Have a tummy that is permanently affected by weight gain, weight loss, or pregnancy

If this sounds like you, reach out to us. We would be delighted to help you make a change that produces real results.

Tummy Tuck Procedure

The tummy tuck takes approximately three hours, and it is performed at our private surgical facility by Dr. Deigni.

The tummy tuck is performed with a careful incision from one hip to the other. In all cases, an additional incision is performed around the belly button. Through these incisions, excess skin and fat are removed. The abdominal muscles are brought together, then the remaining skin is tightened and stitched together.

Drainless Tummy Tuck

Deigni Plastic Surgery offers a drainless tummy tuck, which is a surgical technique that eliminates the need for drains post-procedure. This dramatically enhances your comfort and quality of life after the surgery.

Mini Tummy Tuck

A partial or mini tummy tuck is another option for patients who simply wish to target the lower portion of their midsection. The mini tummy tuck requires fewer incisions, and the incisions are generally shorter and less invasive. It also takes less time to perform and requires a shorter recovery time. This treatment is often combined with liposuction depending on the patient’s needs.

The results from the mini tummy tuck will not be as dramatic, full, or complete as the results from the full tummy tuck procedure, but it could be the best choice for Sugar Land patients who want to change a smaller, more specific section of their abdomen.

Recovery From an Abdominoplasty

During the initial consultation, Dr. Deigni will provide a full medical consultation, which will include exactly what to expect during recovery. Patients also receive a personalized list of guidelines to help them optimally recover from your tummy tuck procedure; these guidelines will depend on individual factors such as age and general health condition.

Here are a few general tips that we offer to our patients. Recovery guidelines may include the following:

  • For three to six weeks following the procedure, avoid driving, physical labor, vigorous exercise, or heavy lifting
  • When provided with compression garments, wear them for the time prescribed, typically up to three months
  • Be sure to attend all follow-up appointments
  • Exercise and eat a healthy diet to maintain the results of the procedure

Patients who undergo a tummy tuck in Sugar Land will also benefit from preparing their homes for maximum comfort during recovery.
