What is tummy tuck?
If your body has been through a pregnancy — or if your weight has fluctuated significantly for other reasons – your midsection may have experienced unwanted aesthetic changes. Even if you had a flat and firm belly before pregnancy, diet and exercise may not be enough to get you back to where you want to be.
Dr. Rod performs tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) to help Phoenix women restore their pre-baby body. He also supports patients who have lost substantial weight or who want to recontour their midsection after liposuction. The surgery can eliminate excess skin and repair weakened muscles, both common symptoms after major weight change.
Dr. Rod is certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and American Board of Surgery and has years of experience, during which he has conducted hundreds of tummy tuck procedures. Patients frequently combine the surgery with breast augmentation and breast lift as part of a mommy makeover to rejuvenate their body and their breasts in a single surgical session.
Dr. Rod’s Approach to Tummy Tuck
Significant weight gain and loss can:
- Leave you with excess tissue around your belly.
- Cause your abdominal muscles to separate.
- Create unaesthetic stretchmarks.
A tummy tuck removes the excess skin and reconstructs the abdominal muscles to give you an hourglass figure. Most of Dr. Rod’s patients see a reduction in the appearance of stretchmarks by 50% to 100%.
With any surgical procedure that he conducts for his Phoenix patients, Dr. Rod prioritizes comfort and safety. One of the most common issues that people experience after a tummy tuck is that they are sent home following surgery and don’t feel well enough to take needed medications on the first day. Dr. Rod avoids this issue by performing tummy tuck surgery in a hospital setting, where patients can receive around-the-clock nursing care.
