Dallas Tummy Tuck with Dr. Jay Burns

Do you have low self-esteem or feel insecure about your body? Have you still not gotten your pre-baby bod back yet? Do you loathe being seen in a bathing suit? Then it’s time to consider a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck can help you feel confident, comfortable and yes, sexy in your body – no matter what your age is.

Think a Dallas tummy tuck could help resolve some of your problems? Here are a few things to know first:

1.   What is a Tummy Tuck, and what does it help?

Abdominoplasty (the “Tummy Tuck”) is used to address excessively loose abdominal skin and abdominal wall laxity. A common myth is that the tummy tuck is primarily to excise fat. While, yes, some fat will be removed, the primary abdominoplasty candidate would be near their goal body weight, but have problems like loose skin or abdominal wall laxity.

2.   How is a Tummy Tuck performed?

The goal of the Tummy Tuck is to remove the majority of the skin between the pubic area and the belly button, tighten and reposition the abdominal muscles and leave the patient with a more youthful, toned stomach. While abdominoplasty is one of the surgeries with the most patient satisfaction, it also often comes with a difficult recovery. Patients will need to wait up to two weeks to stand completely upright. It is also recommended that patients do not lift anything over 10 pounds for approximately one month.

3.    How will Dr. Jay perform my Dallas Tummy Tuck differently?

Dr. Jay Burns understands that many patients, especially new moms, don’t have time to sit around for weeks before they can even stand. That is why Dr. Burns does things a little differently. While still maintaining optimal health standards, he manages to cut down your recovery time. Not only can your recovery time be one-third shorter with Dr. Burns, but the discomfort associated with your procedure can be cut in half, as well.
