Life-Changing Benefits of Getting a Tummy Tuck

tummy tucktummy tuck can be a life-changing surgical procedure for many individuals seeking to restore the body they once had or simply to look as good as they feel. Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck can help you skim off excess fat and tighten your belly area for a firmer, more refreshed appearance. Here’s what you need to know.

What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?

The purpose of a tummy tuck is to effectively eliminate excess skin and fat in the lower abdominal area while simultaneously enhancing the elasticity of the abdominal muscles.

During a tummy tuck, the incision is skillfully placed around the navel, extending just above the pubic hairline and along the bikini line. Through the incision, the surgeon lifts the skin of the abdomen, removes fat and excess tissue, and repairs weakened abdominal muscles. The belly button is repositioned, the skin is pulled down tightly, and the incision is closed.

Typically, post-surgery recovery following a tummy tuck lasts approximately one to two weeks. After your surgery, it is expected to experience a sensation of tightness and numbness in your abdomen. However, this is a regular and temporary condition that will gradually improve over time.

After your recovery period from your tummy tuck, you may expect to experience the following benefits:

Top Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Excess Skin Removal

Pregnancy, fluctuations in body weight, and hereditary factors may all cause the skin in your abdominal area to become loose. A tummy tuck is a highly specialized procedure in that, rather than simply removing fat, it also trims excess skin and tightens the surface of your abdomen.

Long-Lasting Results

The tummy tuck procedure is widely recognized for its long-lasting results, providing many individuals with a permanent solution to keeping a trim abdominal area. By maintaining a stable weight, patients may enjoy enduring results that do not diminish over time.

Strengthened Abdominal Muscles

During a tummy tuck, weakened and separated abdominal muscles are reconnected by the surgeon. For the most part, this is done to avoid abdominal hernias by tightening the waist. This has the added benefit, however, of potentially tightening and strengthening the core. With a stronger core, you can improve flexibility and posture and even relieve back discomfort.

What you need to know about facial implants

At Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, our doctors are available to assist with facial and body surgeries to improve appearance and confidence. For patients who need to augment the face, facial implants may be considered. Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot can educate you on what to expect with facial implants and the surgery required.

What do I need to know about cosmetic facial implants?

If you’re considering getting implants to augment your face, there are a few things you should know. First, it is critical that you consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and see if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. During this consultation, Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot will evaluate the structure of your face to determine which type of facial implant would work best for your needs. They will also take into account your skin thickness and elasticity, as well as the amount of existing fat on your face.

What can I expect from surgery?

After you have decided on the type of implant you want, the next step is to undergo surgery to have the implants placed. The surgery is done with proper anesthesia. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon makes incisions in strategic locations around your face. He will then insert the implant or implants through these incisions and position them in the desired location. Finally, he closes the incisions with sutures or skin adhesive.

Post-operative care following facial implants

After the surgery, you can expect to experience some swelling and bruising around the incision sites. These potential side effects should subside within a few days. You might also notice some numbness in the area where the implants were placed. This is temporary and resolves on its own over time. Once the swelling and bruising have subsided, you’ll be able to see amazing results!

Using Vanquish® for nonsurgical fat reduction

At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg in Hattiesburg, MS, Drs. William Reno IIII and Paul Talbot work directly with patients to help them achieve their face and body goals. Adult men and women who are within their ideal weight range but still have areas of unwanted fat remaining will want to talk to our team about their options. While liposuction, tummy tucks, and other plastic surgeries are effective at addressing these areas of unwanted fat, some of our patients are seeking a non-surgical solution to achieve their desired results. If you have been spending extra time at the gym and have been closely monitoring your food intake without fat reduction in some areas of the body, then a treatment called Vanquish® might be right for you!

What is Vanquish, and how does it actually work?

Vanquish is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive fat reduction treatment. It uses selective RF energy to target and destroy fat cells, without harming the surrounding skin or tissue. The treated fat cells are metabolized by the body and eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system. The result is improved body contours and less fat without diet and exercise–and most importantly, without surgical interventions, scarring, and the risks that come along with these more invasive procedures.

What does Vanquish treat?

Vanquish can be used to treat areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, thighs, and arms. The treatment is safe for all skin types and does not require any downtime. Results are seen in as little as four weeks, with optimal results usually achieved after eight weeks. Our team will discuss aftercare instructions with patients before the procedure is performed, so they have a complete understanding of the recovery process.

How do I contact a Hattiesburg, MS area professional to learn more about Vanquish?

This revolutionary treatment is gaining popularity as more and more patients learn about the wonderful benefits of this radiofrequency energy treatment that eliminates the need for plastic surgery.

Obtain the body contours you deserve with non-invasive Vanquish treatments

Do you work hard to achieve the sculpted body you desire but find that you are still unable to address specific areas of fat? Does diet and exercise fail to target specific area of the body where fat tends to accumulate? Are you tired of muffin tops or a noticeable belly even though you’re at your ideal weight? If this sounds like you, the team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg encourages you to take a moment to learn about a body sculpting treatment that does not require invasive plastic surgery or liposuction. This treatment is known as Vanquish.

What is Vanquish and how does it work?

Vanquish is a body sculpting treatment that is used to help patients achieve fat reduction in a targeted area of the body. Vanquish does this in a non-surgical manner with the use of radiofrequency technology. This energy is delivered through a specialized handpiece and penetrates deep beneath the skin to target the fat cells and break them down. In doing so, patients can reduce the fat deposits in the area safely and effectively. It eliminates the need for patients to undergo treatments such as liposuction to remove unwanted fat directly where it is located.

What are the benefits of undergoing Vanquish body contouring?

Vanquish has many advantages which make it a popular choice for patients who visit our team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg. Some of the most desirable benefits include:

  • Treatment of large areas on the body
  • Shorter treatment times
  • No downtime or recovery needed
  • Pain-free procedures
  • Permanent fat reduction

Augmenting various areas of the face using facial implants

If you are interested in contouring your facial features for a more stunning, striking appearance, you may want to speak to the team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg about the advantages of using facial implants. Just like implants are used to contour the breasts or buttocks, implants are also available to help define one’s facial features. Some of the more common types of implants used by Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot include the chin and cheek implants.

  • Chin implant – patients with a weak chin that is either small or setback in the profile will find that a chin implant can make a dramatic difference in their appearance. The chin implant is placed in a way to improve facial structure and contour. It can make the jawline more apparent, ensuring a more chiseled appearance. At the same time, the chin implant can reduce the appearance of a double chin, or “submental fullness.” This can result in patients looking thinner in the face while ensuring the jawline in more dramatic in overall appearance.
  • Cheek implant – some patients will find that a cheekbone implant can dramatically change the facial structures in a positive way. With more defined cheekbones, patients will have a more defined look to the face. It also reduces fullness in the cheeks that might give a patient a more childlike look. The cheek implant is placed above the cheekbones to add improved definition while contouring the face for better aesthetics.

Am I a good candidate for cheekbone or chin implants?

The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for facial implants is to book a consultation visit with the surgeons at our facility.

Melt fat away with Vanquish

When men and women think of fat reduction, they may rely on improving their diet and exercising more. However, there are some areas of the body where fat continues to reside regardless of food intake and activity. One of the areas most commonly affected is the abdomen. If stomach fat is bothering you, but you want to avoid plastic surgery, it may be time to ask the team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg about nonsurgical fat reduction with Vanquish.

Understanding how Vanquish works

Vanquish is one of many non-invasive fat reduction procedures available on the market today. Vanquish is best utilized on the abdominal area to treat belly fat. Using radiofrequency energy, Vanquish heats and destroys fat cells where it is targeted. While this will not result in massive weight loss or dramatic changes in the way liposuction can, it can provide more natural and gradual improvements in body shape and contour without the risks associated with surgical treatments.

How many treatments do I need?

Vanquish is not a “one and done” treatment. Instead, most patients will benefit from four to six treatments to see noticeable results. Many patients can lose a pant size or two during this process, and find that their clothes fit better than ever! Vanquish treatments are noninvasive, nonsurgical, and comfortable. They are effective for both men and women seeking fat reduction without plastic surgery.

Who is a candidate?

Most patients who are within their ideal weight range and are seeking a body contouring option for the abdominal area may be considered a good candidate. We provide this treatment for adult men and women, and can evaluate an individual to see if they are a proper fit for this or other solutions available in our practice.

Turn back time with Botox injections

When patients come to the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg seeking a solution to aging skin, our team of professionals have a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical options to choose from. Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot of Hattiesburg, MS may suggest the benefits of Botox injections.

What is Botox?

Most of our patients have heard of Botox, but most don’t know exactly how Botox works. Botox is a neuromodulator that is made with botulinum toxin type A. This medication is FDA approved for not only cosmetic use, but for conditions such as chronic headaches and migraines, excessive sweating, and even overactive bladder. The medication works by reducing contractions of certain muscles. When injected into muscles of the face, dynamic wrinkles will smooth. These include glabellar lines, forehead folds, and crow’s feet. While not a long-term option, results from Botox can last up to six months before reinjection is required.

Who is a candidate for Botox?

Most adult men and women over the age of 30 are proper candidates for Botox injections as an anti-aging solution. Botox is one of many injectables available in our office, and can be combined with dermal fillers for a complete and natural-looking transformation. These cosmetic injectables can turn back time and allow patients to feel confident in their appearance. Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds will diminish with Botox injections, and the overall signs of aging can be slowed.

What should I expect during my Botox appointment?

Botox is injected into the areas of concern right in our office by one of our trained professionals. In just minutes, injections are completed, and patients can return to the rest of their day without any interruption. Results are seen within a week, and continue for several months.
