You don’t have to feel self-conscious about how your stomach looks. I am devoted to providing beautiful results to help my patients feel confident once again.”
– Dr. Frank Campanile
The appearance of a prominent belly can be frustrating, especially if that stubborn spare tire remains even after you’ve reached your target weight and are exercising regularly. Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, helps Denver men and women feel great about their body contours again by creating slimmer, smoother lines through the lower belly and midsection.
Request a consultation today or call 303-345-7476 to meet with Dr. Frank Campanile in person. His refined tummy tuck technique and detailed understanding of the structures of the body allow him to provide outstanding care during cosmetic and reconstructive abdominoplasty and body sculpting procedures.
Dr. Campanile understands that no two patients are alike when it comes to body contouring. That’s why he customizes each surgery for your particular needs. There are a number of concerns that can be resolved through a tummy tuck:
- Excess skin and tissue left behind following major weight loss
- Loose muscle tone and stretched skin after pregnancy
- Midsection puffiness that’s particularly resistant to diet or exercise
In some cases, low stretch marks on the belly and C-section scars can also be improved as a byproduct of abdominoplasty, depending on their position and severity.
During surgery, Dr. Campanile begins by making an incision across the lower part of the abdomen. Through this access point, he can repair the muscles of the abdominal wall by retightening them with internal sutures. This pulls the structure of the abdomen taut again. Next, any excess skin and tissue is excised, and the remainder is draped over the restored musculature. In some cases, Dr. Campanile may recommend that liposuction be incorporated as part of the surgery for further improvement of body contours, in which case he will perform a C.L.A.S.S.® tummy tuck instead.
Immediately after surgery, patients will have some discomfort and soreness, especially when standing fully upright, as this pulls on the muscles. Over-the-counter medication is often enough to help patients feel more comfortable, although Dr. Campanile can also prescribe something stronger if needed. It’s important to follow all postoperative instructions from Dr. Campanile, and to take it easy, allowing your body the rest it needs for a fast and safe recovery.
You should notice an improvement in your body contours right away after your procedure, although swelling will initially disguise your final results. After recovery is complete, your belly will look firm and smooth again, with improved muscle tone and a more distinct waistline.
