I am so glad I picked Dr. Klein to do my tummy tuck. Everyone in the office has been wonderful. - K. K.

How can I obtain a flat stomach with no rolls or bulges?

So, you’ve been dieting and exercising for months now – maybe years – in an effort to drop unwanted pounds and return to the figure of your youth. And you’ve succeeded! You’ve lost pounds and inches – everything but that loose skin hanging on your belly that just refuses to go away. Unfortunately, no number of crunches will tighten loose stomach muscles, no miracle creams will rid you of excess skin, and no diet – no matter how healthy – will tone your stomach the way you envision. Only a tummy tuck will give you the flat stomach you desire.

A tummy tuck – or abdominoplasty – is one of the most requested body contouring procedures for women in the Atlanta and Alpharetta area, and the procedure is becoming increasingly popular for men, too. Both men and women desire an improved youthful abdominal contour, whether to correct changes of aging or after weight loss. Chances are, if you are a viable candidate for a tummy tuck, then you may also be interested in additional combination surgeries, including liposuction or a mommy makeover. To schedule a consultation for arguably the best tummy tuck Atlanta has to offer, contact Northside Plastic Surgery today.

Who makes the best abdominoplasty candidate?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your stomach and have found that non-surgical strategies have had little effect on your physique, an abdominoplasty may be an ideal procedure to accomplish your aesthetic goals. Our doctors suggest the following general guidelines for patients:

  • Non-smokers, or willing to quit before their surgery
  • In good health, both emotionally and physically
  • Free from any major medical conditions that would interfere with treatment
  • Finished having children
  • Good skin elasticity
  • Realistic expectations for their results
  • Willing to follow instructions

What are my abdominoplasty options?

You have several options for your Atlanta tummy tuck: A full tummy tuck, a mini-tummy tuck, and lipo-abdominoplasty.

  • A full tummy tuck involves removal of excess lower skin, tightening of the muscles, and repositioning of the belly button.
  • A mini-abdominoplasty simply involves removal of excess skin in the lower abdomen.
  • Lipo-abdominoplasty involves a combination of liposuction of the trunk, combined with a tummy tuck, and is a procedure that results in improved waist definition, as well as contouring of the upper abdomen.

Whether a full tummy tuck, a mini-abdominoplasty, or lipo-abdominoplasty, the results will be a flat stomach with no rolls or bulges. Now that you’ve dropped the weight, a tummy tuck procedure at our conveniently located Alpharetta plastic surgery center will give you the figure of your dreams.

What can I expect during my surgery?

Our Alpharetta abdominoplasty procedures are performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. In some cases, you might be given an analgesic and be moderately sedated. During the procedure, you might be given an antibiotic to prevent infection. The procedure typically takes about one and one-half to three hours.

What can I expect from my recovery?

After a tummy tuck, your abdominal incision and your belly button will likely be covered with surgical dressing. A drain is often placed to promote healing without fluid in the area.

You’ll likely feel moderate pain, which will be controlled by pain medication. It’s normal to have swelling in the surgical area for about six weeks. In some cases, swelling might take up to three months to resolve.

You’ll be required to wear a supportive abdominal garment (abdominal binder) for about three to four weeks after your tummy tuck. This will help prevent fluid buildup and provide abdominal support while you heal.

For the first six weeks after your tummy tuck in Atlanta, GA, you’ll need to somewhat limit activity, such as vigorous exercise and heavy lifting.

What is the cost of the procedure?

Your tummy tuck costs will be explained in full during your private consultation. The total fees will depend on the option you decide on – full tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck or lipo-abdominoplasty – as well as on whether you undergo any additional treatments at the same time, such as a mommy makeover for instance. As always, our office will work with you ensure you receive the best financing options.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
