FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does a tummy tuck cost?
At the time of your consultation, Dr. Gonzalez will customize your unique tummy tuck plan to reach your unique concerns and goals before estimating costs. He will be able to better estimate your costs as soon as the type of abdominoplasty is decided, among other factors. To ensure you get beautiful results from an experienced plastic surgeon, Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery makes it easier to afford your tummy tuck by taking several payment methods and giving you information on low-interest financing.
What type of tummy tuck should I get?
You will probably get one of the three most common techniques for abdominoplasty: full, extended, and mini. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gonzalez will listen to your concerns and goals before performing a physical exam. Then, he can help you decide the technique that will produce your best results. A full abdominoplasty is better if you would like to fix loose skin in both the lower and upper stomach, whereas a mini abdominoplasty is better for concerns under your belly button, such as a “pooch.” The extended technique can address issues in the stomach, plus your upper thighs and hips.
What will my scars look like?
Incisions for your abdominoplasty will vary based on which technique is being used. During all tummy tucks, Dr. Gonzalez uses the thinnest incisions needed to minimize scarring. He also places incisions in areas that are less visible (through the belly button or in the pubic region) so they may be hidden by underwear or a swimsuit. Following your tummy tuck, it is important to adhere to your scar management instructions so your sutures heal properly and eventually blend into your natural skin.
Can I get pregnant after a tummy tuck?
Although you may get pregnant following an abdominoplasty, it will likely affect your results. Dr. Gonzalez strongly encourages that you be finished building your family before you get an abdominoplasty. If you do become pregnant following your tummy tuck, another surgery may be done to refresh your stomach.
Can I get a tummy tuck with another surgery?
Many patients get a second body surgery with an abdominoplasty to attain more dramatic results. At your initial consultation with Dr. Gonzalez, talk to him about your desires so a personalized surgical plan may be created to match your aesthetic goals. You might combine abdominoplasty with a thighplasty for a lower body lift to rejuvenate your figure after having children or losing a lot of weight.
