Sculpting Dreams—Shaping Confidence

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the abdominal area. Dr. Guilfoyle is highly skilled in performing this transformative procedure. The surgery typically involves removing excess skin and fat, tightening the abdominal muscles, and repositioning the belly button for a more sculpted appearance. Dr. Guilfoyle’s expertise ensures precise contouring, resulting in a flatter and more toned abdomen.

If you’re considering a tummy tuck, schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and benefit from Dr. Guilfoyle’s proficiency in delivering exceptional results.

Beyond scars: The evolution of tummy tuck surgery

The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, originated in the early 20th century to address excess skin after weight loss or pregnancy. Early techniques resulted in notable scarring and complications. In the 1950s-1960s, Dr. Thorek introduced a horizontal incision, refining the procedure. The late 20th century saw advancements like liposuction integrated into tummy tucks, and modern techniques focus on preserving blood supply and minimizing scarring.

Dr. Guilfoyle’s expertise ensures patients benefit from the latest advancements, providing optimal results in a safer and more efficient manner.

Tummy Tuck FAQ

How much is a tummy tuck in Utah?

A tummy tuck in Utah typically costs around $10,000. Prices may vary based on factors like surgery time and additional procedures. For a personalized estimate and to discuss your unique goals, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our experienced team.

Is there a certain weight threshold for a tummy tuck?

There’s no definitive weight requirement for a tummy tuck, but we generally recommend patients to be within 15 pounds of their ideal body weight for optimal results. During a consultation, we’d be happy to discuss your individual circumstances, goals, and determine the most suitable approach for your tummy tuck procedure.

How many sizes can you lose with a tummy tuck?

The impact of a tummy tuck on sizes varies among individuals. While there’s no fixed rule, many patients typically see a reduction of one to two sizes following the procedure. The final outcome is influenced by factors such as your starting size, body composition, and individual healing. To gain a more accurate understanding tailored to your specific case, it’s best to discuss your goals and expectations during a consultation.

How much weight will a tummy tuck take off?

The weight removed during a tummy tuck procedure typically involves excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. This can weigh between 3 to 5 pounds for the skin flap. If combined with liposuction, an additional 3 liters (approximately 6.5 pounds) of fat may be removed.

Is it better to lose weight before or after a tummy tuck?​

Ideally, it’s recommended to be within 10 to 15 pounds of your goal weight before undergoing a tummy tuck. Losing weight before the procedure can optimize results and enhance the overall outcome. This approach ensures that the surgery addresses specific areas of concern, and any subsequent weight loss post-tummy tuck can further enhance the results.

Can I combine my tummy tuck procedure with other ones?

Yes, combining a tummy tuck with other procedures is common. Many patients opt to have additional surgeries, such as breast augmentation or liposuction, performed simultaneously for a more comprehensive transformation. During a consultation, we can discuss your goals and determine the most suitable combination of procedures tailored to achieve your desired results.

How long is the recovery from a tummy tuck?

Recovery from a tummy tuck typically takes around 5 to 7 days for most patients. During this time, pain management is often required, and afterward, individuals can resume most of their daily activities.

Who is a good candidate for a tummy tuck?

Most individuals within 10 to 15 pounds of their ideal body weight, without significant medical complications, can be excellent candidates for a tummy tuck. If you’re considering the procedure and wish to achieve a more contoured abdomen, scheduling a consultation would allow us to assess your suitability and discuss your specific goals.

Does a tummy tuck include liposuction?

Not all tummy tucks include liposuction, but it is often performed simultaneously for enhanced results. Whether liposuction is recommended depends on individual goals and areas of concern.

“Loose abdominal skin and pockets of persistent fat can cause a person to appear out of proportion. For those looking for the best way to address this problem, a tummy tuck is usually the best procedure.”
