About Tummy Tuck procedures with Dr. Yily De los Santos

With this surgical procedure excess skin is removed, and the weakened muscles of the abdominal area are strengthened by stitching them together to achieve a tighter abdominal wall, resulting in a smaller waist and flatter abdomen.

The Tummy Tuck plastic surgery can also correct decreasing excess fat, and eliminates scars and stretch marks located below the navel that can be caused by pregnancy, massive weight loss, aging and other possible factors.

This procedure can be performed along with other surgical procedures (example: Hernia Repair, Liposuction, Fat Grafting, Breast Reduction and/or augmentation, etc.) as long as the patient is healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions about Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty surgery:

  • TUMMY TUCK
  • I HAVE AN UMBILICAL HERNIA, AM I A CANDIDATE FOR TUMMY TUCK?

    Probably, yes, the recommended procedure for you would be a Tummy Tuck, but, still, is better to have a consultation with your preferred surgeon to discuss that. If it happens to be that you're eligible for Tummy Tuck, the hernia can be repaired in that same surgery.

  • HOW SOON AFTER BARIATRIC SURGERY CAN I HAVE A TUMMY TUCK, AND WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?

    You need to have stable weight for about 3 months after your surgery. That usually happens after a year post op. I have operated on post-bariatric patients and I recommend you to wait a year because your body will be going through changes and if you have a Tummy Tuck now you will probably lose more weight and get loose skin again, which will mess up the work. Now, after a Tummy Tuck I recommend 4 weeks of rest, after that you will feel much better, but the results will be more visible in 3 months.

  • HAD A TUMMY TUCK WITH LIPO IN JANUARY. CONSIDERING A BBL A YEAR LATER. WILL I BE SATISFIED WITH MY RESULT WITH SO LITTLE FAT?

    The satisfaction with the BBL will be based on your expectations and what you have to work with. If you don't want something ''big'' (which is relative) you should be fine; but it's better if you send picture to your preferred surgeon or have a consultation in person to discuss it and get certain opinion.

  • WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU GET A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT, IS IT A MUST THAT YOU GET A TUMMY TUCK AFTERWARDS?

    A Tummy Tuck is not needed for all the patients who get Lipo. Tummy Tuck is mostly recommended for patients who need muscle tightening after having kids, have a hernia, or those who have excessive/saggy skin on the abdomen or could end up having excess of skin after surgery Lipo. There's no need for you to get a Tummy Tuck if your Doctor doesn't consider you have these problems I mentioned. If it is the case, what I usually do is to combine both procedures, focusing on tightening the abdominal muscle and doing the more Lipo on the sides and back; as long as the patient qualifies for it.

  • MIXED PROCEDURES WITH BREASTS
  • SHOULD I GET A TUMMY TUCK AND BREAST LIFT? HAVEN’T FISNISHED PREGNANCIES.

    What I recommend to my patients is to wait after finishing pregnancies before getting a Tummy Tuck. It's true that many patients don't have drastic changes if they have a baby after a TT. But you can't really guess if you will be one of the lucky ones. Another thing is that a TT limits your abdomen because of the muscle tightening, which can possibly interfere with your pregnancy development, but this is not something too common.

  • MASSAGES AFTER MOMMY MAKEOVER?

    Tummy Tuck and Liposculpture always require massages, in fact, without massages you have no guarantee of good results. You need this treatment to avoid lumps and hardness on the areas you get worked on, and, also, to drain possible rest of liquid that might be left after your drain is removed. I always recommend my patients to start with the massages on the 5th day post-op, and to take at least 10 sessions of 30 minutes minimum, you can get more sessions if desired, like 15 or 20.

  • I'M LOOKING TO GET BREAST AUGMENTATION W/ LIFT, BBL, TUMMY TUCK, AND NOSE SURGERY. CAN I HAVE THESE DONE ALL AT ONCE?

    I, sincerely, don't recommend to get all these done at the same time. Every surgical procedure has it's own risk, getting many procedure done together, like the ones just mentioned would be just too much. I would recommend to do it in 2 or 3 rounds, depending on your health. My advice is to focus on the main areas first and leave the rest for a second round, this you should discuss with your surgeon to get a certain opinion.

  • GENERAL QUESTIONS
  • SHOULD I HAVE PREPPING TESTING? I’M 43

    An EKG isn't mandatory if you don't have cardiac history, but some Clinics have this policy that patients from 40 and above should have this test just for safety. But you shouldn't be scared, it's just the routine.

  • WHAT ARE THE BEST FOODS TO EAT AFTER MY BODY SURGERY?

    Usually, you won't have to go on a diet right away. You can eat regularly, just avoid unhealthy food (like greasy food) food. Try to eat things that give you strength because you may be anemic after surgery.
