Tummy Tuck Performed by Top Surgeon Dr. Fiorillo

Posted February 10, 2016 in Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty, which is commonly known as a “tummy tuck” is a noteworthy surgical method to expel overabundant fat and sagging skin from the lower and middle abdomen. This surgery also fixes the muscles of the stomach wall. The process can drastically diminish the presence of a sagging stomach. It will produce a permanent scar, as with any surgery, that is contingent upon the degree of the condition and the surgery required to tighten the muscle. If you're considering the tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Fiorillo offers a full line of treatment in his two convenient locations. Dr. Fiorillo can answer any of your inquiries that are related to abdominoplasty. To help you get started, here is a small guide that will provide you the essential understanding of a tummy tuck procedure.

The ideal candidates for a tummy tuck surgery are those who are fit, but are annoyed by the expansive fat or sagging stomach skin that won't react to a healthy eating routine or exercise. Dr. Fiorillo tells the patient that abdominoplasty is not a treatment for obesity, and doctors generally require their candidates to weigh at least under 110% of the Army's prerequisites for age and height. The surgery is especially useful to women who went through pregnancies causing their stomach muscles to extend massively and can no longer be reverted back to its previous state. Older patients who lose the elasticity of their skin are also considered for the surgery by Dr. Fiorillo.

Those who are planning to lose weight and those who are thinking about pregnancy are recommended to skip the process since vertical muscles found in the stomach area are affected during the tummy tuck and can be damaged during your pregnancy. In the event that you have scarring caused by past stomach surgery, the specialist will educate you about the possibility of a permanent scar and will prepare you for the whole process.

Under the guidelines and standard of federal law and government agency, the doctors will also need to figure out if your method is corrective or reconstructive. On the off chance that it's principally restorative, there might be a charge for the system and different confinements might apply.

Dr. Fiorillo can enhance your appearance as well as boost your self-confidence. Before you undergo an abdominoplasty, you should set an appointment with the surgeon to talk about your expectations. Contact Dr. Fiorillo today about your tummy tuck at 888-537-0954.
