Why Should You Consider a Tummy Tuck?

Boosted Confidence

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck can help you feel more confident inside and out. Patients can wear dresses and swimsuits that show off their figure without worrying about how they look.

Lasting Results

With proper maintenance through a healthy lifestyle and exercise, the results from abdominoplasty can last a lifetime. For patients with excess fat, we can combine treatment with liposuction for dramatic results.

Life-Changing Results

Are you tired of exercising and dieting with no success? Excess skin can feel impossible to target without plastic surgery. For many patients, abdominoplasty is the best way to get the results they want.

I recently had a tummy tuck with Dr. Mesna in late December of 2020. I had been self-conscious about the hanging skin on my abdomen for years which was compounded by separation of my abdominal muscles from 2 pregnancies. Dr. Mesna exceeded my expectations! I was able to move around independently from day one and the pain was minimal. Dr. Mesna is meticulous and a perfectionist, my scar is so thin and perfect and I know it will fade to nothing over time. My only regret is not doing this sooner!

I highly recommend Dr. Mesna! He and his staff are so caring and kind. He really listened to what I was concerned about and trying to accomplish with my body and gave me the results that I was hoping for! After my pregnancies and breast-feeding my 3 beautiful children- I wasn't feeling so confident about certain areas of body. Dr. Mesna was able to give me my confidence back! He really is talented and provides results.

What to Expect During Tummy Tuck Recovery 

Pain

Some swelling, bruising, and tenderness are to be expected during the first week. We will prescribe pain medication to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible during this healing period.

Compression Garment

Patients must wear a compression garment for several weeks after the procedure. This helps with blood flow, facilitates healing, and helps your skin and tissue adjust to your final contour.

Activity

Any tummy tuck procedure will require several weeks of reduced activity and at least one week of downtime. However, we encourage patients to regularly walk short distances as this improves circulation and helps avoid complications during recovery.

Recovery Period

Many patients with sedentary occupations can return to work in about a week after a mini tummy tuck. After a traditional abdominoplasty, it may take up to two weeks to return to activities, and an extended tummy take may take up to several weeks.

Follow-Ups

Dr. Mesna closely monitors your recovery and is always available to answer any questions or concerns. We will schedule several follow-up appointments at our Minneapolis, MN, office to monitor your progress and ensure everything is on track.
