Tummy Tuck in Portland

WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK?

Many people celebrate the loss of weight but are disappointed by the excess, deflated skin afterward.  Some have done it through diet, exercise, or bariatric surgery.  Others have a normal weight but have seen the effects of pregnancy and in particular, multiple births or twins.  In her Portland, OR area practice, Dr. Elisa Burgess is pleased to offer tummy tuck procedures, or abdominoplasty, to patients who want a firmer, flatter abdomen.

There are multiple reasons people chose to undergo tummy tuck surgery, including:

  • To remove excess skin and fat that has not responded favorably to diet and exercise
  • To repair abdominal wall muscles and contour the abdominal shape after childbearing has been completed
  • To assist bariatric patients in removing excess tissue following weight loss

I AM NOT DONE HAVING CHILDREN, CAN I GET A TUMMY TUCK?

These are popular procedures and have been performed around the world hundreds of thousands of times. There are the risks associated with any surgery: reaction to anesthesia, excessive bleeding, infection, poor wound healing, and the like. These are very rare. The main side effect, per se, is the scar created by this procedure, as is discussed above. A tummy tuck incision is the longest in cosmetic surgery. There is a risk with inexperienced surgeons that the incision will not heal evenly and may even be wavy. That’s not the case with Dr. Burgess, whose board certification, training, expertise, and 20 plus years of surgical experience ensure you’ll love your new contoured tummy.

THE TUMMY TUCK PROCEDURE

As with all of her surgeries, Dr. Burgess adapts each procedure to the particular needs of the patient. A Tummy Tuck in Portland is often sought by women who’ve had children because the localized weight gain of pregnancy stretches the skin so dramatically and it also tends to separate the rectus abdominis muscles in the center of the stomach area. No matter how many crunches you do, those muscles cannot return to their original position in the center without surgery.

During your consultation, the two of you will discuss your options for the method Dr. Burgess will use for your tummy tuck.
