Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck Surgery – Abdominoplasty in Utah

Some people are predisposed to carry a little extra weight around their midsection, while others develop a sagging, protruding abdomen after pregnancy or weight loss. Whatever the reason, lax muscles and loose skin around your middle can be very difficult to improve with diet and exercise alone. For his patients who want a slimmer, firmer midsection, Dr. Rose performs abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) at his Provo, Orem and Salt Lake City, Utah area clinic.
Why Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty can restore a firmer, slimmer appearance to the waistline and flatten the abdomen by:

  • Removing excess fat
  • Eliminating sagging skin and stretch marks
  • Tightening muscles of the abdominal wall

About the Procedure

Abdominoplasty is the surgical procedure designed to flatten a protruding abdomen by tightening the muscles in the abdominal wall and removing excess fatty tissue and skin. Also called a tummy tuck, patients considering abdominoplasty have several options to choose from. If your excess skin is below your navel, a “mini” tummy tuck may be right for you. If you have laxity of your abdominal muscles or excessive skin, a full or traditional tummy tuck may be your best solution. In some cases, liposuction can be performed alone to produce a slimmer appearance, or may be used in addition to the tummy tuck procedure to remove unwanted fat. Dr. Rose will usually offer liposuction along the “flanks” area when performing tummy tuck surgery, to give an hourglass or contoured look. Dr. Rose may also suggest breast augmentation for women who want to restore balance to the body or enhance body contours.

Depending on the extent of your procedure, surgical time can range from 2 to 5 hours. At the Riverwoods Surgery Center in Provo, tummy tuck surgery is typically performed by Dr. Rose with general anesthesia. In most cases, Dr. Rose will have his patients stay overnight at the Riverwoods Surgery Center for their first night following surgery. Typically, a full tummy tuck will utilize a long incision that runs between the pelvic bones – hidden by a bathing suit or underwear – with a second incision around the navel. The mini abdominoplasty uses a shorter, lower-abdominal incision only.

Our abdominoplasty patients may need to take 2 to 4 weeks off of work, and up to 6 weeks or more off from strenuous activity. Bruising, swelling, and tenderness should subside over the course of a few weeks, while scars may take several months to a year to fade. Once you have recovered, you will enjoy showing off your new, slimmer midsection and flat tummy.

Testimonials

I have been meaning to send you an email and let you know how happy I am with my results and experience with you. I went to 5 different doctors and chose you. Knowing different results with people that I know, I am pretty sure that those other doctors would have done a fine job. After going to your office and the experience that I had with you and your staff, I knew that you were the doctor for me. You are the most professional doctor that I saw. It was so much more comfortable for me to go over all of the information about breast augmentation with you at your desk and me fully dressed. I didn't have that experience with any of the other doctors. You have a way of making people feel at ease as much as possible. It was nice to have a doctor tell me sizes to consider that would be proportionate to my body frame.

Your staff is so wonderful. Each person in your office is so pleasant to deal with. I don't think that you could have better staff and it helped make my final decision to go to you to have my procedure done.

You did an amazing job!! This is confirmed to me each time one of my friends or family members tells me how natural and great I look. I have decided, if you have something about yourself that bothers you and can be fixed, fix it! The confidence boost that this breast augmentation has given me is awesome. My husband said Dang, I have never heard you talk about any part of yourself like this before. I replied with, Have you ever seen any part of me look so great? We both said that you must have been very gentle during surgery, because I had one tiny little bruise and I felt great quickly after.

I am very happy with my results and I would recommend you to anyone. I have found myself trying to think of people that I could tell to go to you and I realized it probably wouldn't be very nice to tell people that they need to improve their looks if they hadn't even thought of it before. Two of my friends have come to you already and feel the same as I do. We need more surgeons out there like you.

Sincerely,K
