Look and Feel Your Best with a Tummy Tuck

Enhanced Figure

Also known as abdominoplasty, patients can expect to achieve a slimmer figure and increased self-esteem after their tummy tuck procedure. This opens doors to enjoy activities and wear clothing that once would have felt impossible.

Long-Lasting Results

The results from abdominoplasty can last a lifetime with proper maintenance through a healthy diet and exercise. We can combine treatment with liposuction, producing comprehensive results for patients wishing to address excess fat around the abdomen.

Repair Abdominal Muscles

Women can experience loose abdominal muscles after pregnancy which causes the stomach to stick out. Our plastic surgeon can repair muscles along the abdominal wall and address excess skin to give you the tightened appearance you desire.

Are abdominoplasties common?

Are You the Right Candidate? 

Generally Healthy

Your health is an important consideration for surgery because certain conditions like autoimmune diseases and smoking can increase your risk of complications. 

At a Stable Weight

You should be committed to a healthy diet and exercise to prevent significant weight gain. For these reasons, you should also wait until after you are finished having children to undergo abdominoplasty at our Greenville office.

Tried Dieting and Exercise

Typically, we recommend that patients first try diet and exercise to achieve their desired figure. However, plastic surgery is an excellent option to achieve what lifestyle changes cannot.

Unhappy with Your Waistline 

Whether due to aging, pregnancy, weight loss, or simply stubborn fat accumulation, a tummy tuck or liposuction is typically recommended to patients who are genuinely unhappy with the size and shape of their waistline.

Have Realistic Expectations

Setting unrealistic expectations can leave you disappointed. Discuss any questions with your doctor and educate yourself about the procedure beforehand to set realistic expectations.

Refine Your Figure after Massive Weight Loss

Losing substantial weight can be exciting. However, many patients are disappointed with their results because their skin has significantly stretched out. This can result in loose skin that prevents you from having the waistline your desire. Fortunately, a tummy tuck can be performed to refine the area, allowing you to achieve the toned abdomen you have worked hard for through weight loss.

"Dr. Graham and his staff are so caring and thorough. They truly do what is best and listen and talk through any concerns or questions that you may have. I am so happy with my results and I wish I would have done it years ago. I am so thankful and would recommend the aesthetic center of greenville to any woman who is looking for a doctor and staff that is kind, caring, practical, and skilled in what they do! Thank you Dr. Graham, God bless you and your wonderful staff!" Sarah Chastain

The Tummy Tuck Procedure What to Expect

Consultation

During your initial consultation at our Greenville office, Dr. Graham will conduct a thorough evaluation to learn about your cosmetic goals. He will walk you through the procedure, techniques he uses, and where the incisions will be located. You can also preview your anticipated results during this appointment.

Anesthesia

To begin the process, our plastic surgeon will administer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Patients usually have no recollection of the surgery and are in a sleep-like state.

Incisions

Dr. Graham carefully places a horizontal incision in the area across the hips and below the belly button. He may create a second incision if muscles along the abdominal wall will be tightened during the procedure.

Modifications

Excess skin and fat are removed from the area to create your slim, sculpted abdomen. Any separated muscles are repaired during this stage as well, and a new opening may be created for the belly button.

Sutures

To complete the process, the skin is pulled down, and any excess skin is trimmed away to ensure a flat midsection. The area is then sutured into place.

Recovery

Patients can rest as long as needed in our recovery area and are typically able to return home the same day. Our plastic surgeon will provide detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a seamless healing experience.
