Video: Tummy Tuck
Dr. Rumalla has extensive experience performing tummy tucks, often doing two or three a week. For optimal results, it is important that patients keep in mind that a tummy tuck is a body sculpting procedure, not a weight loss remedy. Patients should also closely follow post-operative procedures and activity restrictions to avoid complications and help with recovery.
A tummy tuck is a commonly performed procedure at our practice serving Keller, Fort Worth and South Lake, Texas. The medical term for a tummy tuck is an Abdominoplasty. The effects of pregnancy, time, sun, gravity, genetics, and repeated cycles of weight gain and -loss play havoc on our shape and figure. Tummy tuck procedures can be designed to address many of the common concerns you may have about your abdominal contour, including:
- Loose skin
- Folds of skin and fat
- Stretch marks
- Abdominal wall weakness and bulging
- Unsightly surgical scars
- How you fit into your clothes
Tummy tuck procedures performed at our Keller, Southlake, or Fort Worth practices improve your figure by removing extra skin and fat, and tightening the abdominal wall to improve your waistline. At Tarrant Plastic Surgery we pride ourselves on extremely low scars which are usually well-hidden in the bikini line. Both men and women may be good candidates for tummy tucks, but men often do not need muscle repair.
Liposuction is often used on the love handles, thighs, and abdomen to further enhance your overall shape. During your complimentary consultation with Dr. Rumalla, he will spend the time it takes to create an individual plan that best addresses your needs and enhances your look.

Tummy Tuck procedures are usually performed at our surgery center and overnight stays are available. Full recovery takes several weeks, but most patients can be back at work at a desk job in one week. Truly transform your life and appearance with a tummy tuck.
