Can I Get My Tubes Tied At The Same Time As A Tummy Tuck
Yes, but....: You can if a gynecologist joins the operation but I recommend against it. Entering the abdominal cavity during surgery increases the risk of blood clots and other more dangerous, but less common risks of the operation. Doing the two operations at separate times decreases the overall risk. ...Read more
How long should I wait to have a tummy tuck afterc section and what do u tjthink about tummy tucks (witch hazel)?
I perform a significant number of tummy tucks (witch hazel) each year for my young mothers and feel that this is a great procedure when done by a qualified plastic surgeon with experience in this area.
I generally recommend waiting a few months following a c-section so that soft tissue swelling has gone done and your hormones have returned to a more natural state. ...Read more
Can a tummy tuck help a post-pregnancy belly? I recently gave birth to twin girls. Right now, I am five months postpartum, but none of the exercises that I am doing are helping get rid of my saggy belly skin. Can tummy tucks actually get rid of all this e
Yes: Tummy tucks (witch hazel) or adominoplasty is great at rejuvenating the post oartum abdomen. This procedure will realign your rectis muscles in the midline limiting the diastasis typically created by your pregnancy as well as remove excess skin laxity and unsitely stretch marks. Remember, however, if you plan to having more children this will typically recur. ...Read more
Sometimes: Depending on the type and size of the hernia, these procedures may sometimes come together very nicely; other times, not so much. I recommend that you see a hernia surgeon to see if you are a candidate; they can then coordinate your care with a plastic surgeon if it is feasible. Word of caution: while your insurance will pay for the hernia repair, the aesthetic procedures are not covered. ...Read more
Want to get tummy tuck and gynestomia breast reduction on the same surgery or at the same time. Is this possible and can u recommend someone in ny/nj?
Totally Possible: Yes, this combined procedure is generally well tolerated. Since this multiple procedure surgery can take 5-6 hours in the OR, I use IV anesthesia (instead of general anesthesia) to reduce the risk of pulmonary embolism. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. The best way to find one near you is to search the ASPS site at find. Plasticsurgery. Org. ...Read more
I got my tubes tied last year and ever since my stomach has been hard and for the last 2 weeks I get a stabbing pain in my sides, what should I do?
See your doctor: That is very strange and unusual. That procedure should really not cause those symptoms. So the first question is why are you having symptoms and are they related to the procedure. You likely need an ultrasound and exam to figure out. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely!: A tubal ligation performed at the time of c/s carries an extremely low failure rate over time. While it is never wrong to go ahead and do a pregnancy test, this seems like an unlikely explanation for your "flutter". In the right upper quadrant is your gallbladder, liver, and a portion of the large intestine. Given the lack of pain, this is of low concern but should be discused with your doctor! ...Read more

Can other procedures be done at the same time as a mini tummy tuck? I am worried about anesthesia, but I want to have a couple of other procedures as well as a mini tummy tuck. Can they all be done at once? .
Often: Generally, it is possible to have several procedures performed at the same time; whether or not these procedures should be performed at the same time is a decision that should be made based on safety considerations. For example, concerns such as duration of surgery, blood loss, medical condition, risks/complications etc. Are taken into consideration. Anesthesia/surgery center facilty also key. ...Read more
Can a tummy tuck be done at the same time as butt augmentation? I would like to have a tummy tuck as well as a butt augmentation. Can they be done at the same time? .
Yes it can: I do it on almost every tummy tuck, as my ok league mentioned it depends on what volume you are looking for. If you want much bigger, more aggressive lipo is needed to get more volume, and this is advisable separately. Shape change can be seen with small volumes, but not so much size. ...Read more
Yes: This is a very popular "mommy make-over" combo because women who have children often have abdominal bulges afterwards and the breasts may have enlarged/drooped. The procedures are safe to do at the same time if the patient is in good health otherwise and the doctor has experience with the procedure. Combining the two increases risks slightly so some people choose to do them separately. ...Read more

Are there any less invasive ways to achieve the same results as a tummy tuck? I would love to get a tummy tuck but I am afraid to go through such a drastic procedure. Are there any alternative procedures that achieve similar results as a tummy tuck? .
The first item to discern is to determine if there is extra skin, bulging fat above the muscles, separation of the vertical abdominal muscles or fat within the deeper cavity that is pushing outward. Once that is established then the proper procedure can be selected for you.
If only localized fat in the front and sides of the abdomen then liposuction can give be used to sculpt these areas. Otherwise the abdominal muscles need to be tightened with removal and contouring of the skin & fat.
A complete evaluation will choose the procedure that is optimal for you. ...Read more

Can I have breast implants at the same time as my tummy tuck? Is it possible and/or advisable to have breast implants at the same time as my tummy tuck? .
Yes, but: A given plastic surgeon may legitimately feel the answer is 'no' especially once individual circumstances are considered. Both procedures have post-op pain, but the physiological burden for a healthy patient is not too much. I have done the augmentation thru the tummy tuck incision under certain circumstances... ...Read more
Can a mommy makeover get rid of stretch marks? After having two kids, my body isn't the same as it used to be. I have stretch marks on my upper thighs and all over my stomach and love handles. I would like to get a tummy tuck, but can a mommy makeover als
Possibly.: Removal of stretch marks will require direct skin excision. For example, stretch marks that are present along the lower abdominal wall may very well be removed during tummy tuck surgery. Of coarse, in person consultation with board certified plastic surgeons will be your best option for precise advice. Ask to see lots of examples of their work and communicate your goals clearly. Best wishes. ...Read more
