What is a Tummy Tuck?
For many adults, hanging skin and excess fat along the abdominal region can be frustrating and hard to lose. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging are the most popular reasons why someone may not be able to regain a tighter and slimmer abdomen. A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic treatment that successfully transforms the stomach area, creating attractive outcomes for patients. Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Emeka Umerah performs tummy tucks tailored to help you meet your specific needs. This popular surgery at Ageless Aesthetics allows men and women the chance to have a toned, smaller abdomen and more confidence. For more information about how a tummy tuck can eliminate excess skin and fat while also tightening your stomach muscles, contact our Warner Robins or Macon, GA facility to schedule your consultation.
Tummy Tuck Reviews
"I Couldn't Ask for Better. - I have had several procedures done with him or his staff: I had bodytite, tummy tuck, and fat transfer in 1 day. Yes, I had some pain for a few weeks, but I love the results. Everything looks natural and I am healing very nicely. We are doing Fractora for my scars from a breast reduction I had done in 2015 at a different provider. After the 1st session, I noticed an improvement on those scars...."- M. / RealSelf / Sep 27, 2018

Will be putting photos up weekly and before after photos for your view. If anyone has comments that can help me relax please share. ThanksUpdated on 9 May 2015:I am so happy the staff was wonderful. Safety came first for Dr. Umerah and his staff not only was he there another surgeon was there to assist for double safety. I am so pleased with my results and it's only 1 day post op. I will be updating with more photos periodically so keep an eye out. The cost for everything was 16k which is totally worth it and Dr. Umerah worked with me these procedures cost way more elsewhere especially for the quality of work and safety I received I can't thank you enough Dr umerah and staff for making my dream a reality! :-)Updated on 9 May 2015:Today is only day one post op. And I am already excited to see end result. My pain is either minimal or the Doc.gave me some really good pain medication. I am so happy I will post more photos once I can take them of my buttocks.

What Can I Expect from My Tummy Tuck?
Your tummy tuck will be performed while you are under general anesthesia. There are several methods to consider when this surgery is performed by Dr. Umerah, which are based on your particular needs. For starters, the incision type is determined based on the amount of excess skin you have. If you have sagging and loose skin, it may require an extended tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck places the incision along your lower abdomen from hip to hip, just on top of the pubic region. Those who are concerned with minimal skin laxity may be better candidates for a less invasive technique. Regardless of the technique used, all abdominoplasty procedures at Ageless Aesthetics involve the removal of loose skin and liposuction. After your tummy tuck surgery, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression garment to help control swelling. Walking upright will be challenging at first so you should rest for several days. Moving about becomes easier once your abdominal muscles adjust and your incision heals. You can generally resume a normal routine after about two weeks with exercise following after about six weeks unless otherwise cleared by Dr. Umerah. Your stomach will feel sore and tight, but you will feel normal once healed.
Tummy Tuck for a Tightened and Toned Appearance
Many factors can lead to a sagging stomach that leaves behind hanging folds of skin. We know it can be annoying and frustrating, and often, surgery is generally the key to overcoming this. If you are embarrassed by the stretched-out skin in your abdomen, regardless of the severity, a tummy tuck by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Emeka Umerah can allow you to get the look you want.
