“With my experience performing nearly 1,000 abdominoplasties, I have been able to refine my techniques to minimize patient time under anesthesia, and lower their risks while maximizing cosmetic outcome. This allows me to more safely combine abdominoplasty with other procedures so patients can achieve more complete results while minimizing time away from work. It’s amazing how fast our patients recover after a tummy tuck, and the dramatic changes they experience in the clothing they wear and their lifestyles.”
– Dr. Yager
If you are considering weight loss, it is best done prior to surgery, as Dr. Yager will be able to maximize your result. Being five or ten pounds overweight is not a problem, but more than that can affect your result. All smoking must be stopped 3 weeks pre and post surgery, as nicotine can delay wound healing and even cause skin loss.
If it is a tummy tuck that you require, it is best done after your last child, as pregnancy with weight gain can cause the same stretching to occur again. If you do become pregnant after surgery, there is no danger to you or your child.
