Do you want to look as good from the back as you do from the front?
Have you looked at countless “before and after” galleries of tummy tucks and thought, “Wow, these women look great from the front, but they don’t look any different from the back”? Or did some of them look “boxy” to you from the front? Dr. Gordon and Dr. Reid often thought that too, so instead of accepting the status quo, our innovative surgeons developed a new surgical procedure and named it the Tummy Tuck 360™. Their Tummy Tuck 360™ will not only transform your stomach from flab to flat but will also transform your entire trunk, the result of combining your tummy tuck with SAFELipo® of any back fat, bra rolls, and/or muffin tops. Treating the front and the back as a unit results in tightening of the skin that is unprecedented. It’s so powerful, the doctors like to refer to it as their “shrink wrap” procedure.
Tell me more about how the Tummy Tuck 360™ procedure was developed?
Plastic surgeons have been performing tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedures for several decades with great success. A traditional tummy tuck involves removing excess skin and fat below the belly button, along with tightening or repairing the separation of the paired abdominal muscles in the midline. Dr. Gordon and Dr. Reid regularly performed standard tummy tucks, but they found that while the patients were thrilled with their “flat” stomachs and their overall appearance from the front, they lacked any visible change in the “back”. The traditional technique wasn’t able to provide their goal of delivering a “Before Baby Body” result. As we all know, pregnancy and/or weight fluctuations don’t only cause changes in our appearance from the front, they cause changes along our sides and our back. People tend to get bigger or thicker all around. The patients looked great from the front, but didn’t look any different from the back. Unfortunately, traditional plastic surgery training had always taught surgeons NOT to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction due to perceived risks and complications. However, with advances in surgical techniques and the introduction of innovative procedures such as SAFELipo®, patients have safe, effective options that have never been available before.
The Tummy Tuck 360™ Difference
Upon learning about this new liposuction technique a few years ago, Dr. Reid and Dr. Gordon traveled to Shreveport, Louisiana to train with the creator and inventor of SAFELipo®, Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr. From this experience, they were able to safely combine liposuction with their tummy tuck procedure, providing an all-around body contouring solution and revolutionizing their results. Many patients experience a total transformation – not only in the abdominal area but also along the entire circumferential trunk, from the bra roll to the top of the buttocks. Dr. Gordon and Dr. Reid are proud to be among the first plastic surgeons in the country to incorporate this technology into their practice, and they are the only certified SAFELipo® providers in all of Austin. With such amazing transformations, Tummy Tuck 360™ has quickly become one of Restora Austin’s most requested procedures.
Is the Tummy Tuck 360™ right for me?
Tummy Tuck 360™ results are dramatic. When considering the Tummy Tuck 360™ option, patients should understand the combination surgery requires additional time, and is, therefore, more expensive than a traditional tummy tuck. At your consultation, Dr. Reid or Dr. Gordon will evaluate your concerns and discuss your options to help you determine which procedure will provide you with the optimal, natural result you deserve.
Tummy Tuck 360 Austin — FAQs
How soon can someone get back to their regular routine after having a Tummy Tuck 360?
In general, patients who have undergone Tummy Tuck 360 with SAFELipo can expect to return to work after just a couple of days and usually feel back to their normal selves in less than a week. Everyone heals at their own pace, but most patients return to their everyday routines and workouts after about 3 weeks of recovery. It’s important to wait before adding anything new or strenuous into your workout until Dr. Reid or Dr. Gordon have given you the go-ahead.
How many sizes will I go down after a tummy tuck 360?
Depending on your current size, your tummy tuck 360 procedure can help you go down 1-3 dress or pant sizes from your waist. Tummy tuck 360 is an excellent procedure if you have unwanted hanging abdominal skin from past pregnancy or weight gain that hangs over your skin and forces you into a size that maybe isn’t right for you. However, it is essential to note that a tummy tuck procedure is not a weight loss substitute.
Can I get a six-pack after a tummy tuck?
Yes, you can get a six-pack after tummy tuck 360. The procedure won’t give you abs, but a tummy tuck 360 can help remove excess fat and skin, revealing the muscles you’ve worked hard for underneath. After about six weeks of recovery from your procedure, you can start exercising again and tone up your abdominal muscles even more.
What is the best age for a tummy tuck?
There is no ideal age for a tummy tuck; however, some patients prefer to have a tummy tuck after they’ve finished having children or when their bodies no longer respond to diet and exercise the same way as they did in their youth. For most patients, this is generally their 30-50 range.
Should I lose weight before or after my tummy tuck 360?
It is best if you lose weight before your tummy tuck procedure. Ideally speaking, you should be at or near your ideal weight before undergoing a tummy tuck 360. This is because if you have your tummy tuck procedure and continue to lose weight, you may find more loose skin as you lose more weight. It’s best to treat it all at once.
