Achieve a Sleek, Firm Profile
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, performed at our Milwaukee-area practice, removes excess fat and skin from your belly to create a sleeker and firmer profile. The procedure usually includes the restoration of weakened or separated muscles. Even men and women of ideal weight can struggle with a slack or protruding stomach, which is one of the reasons tummy tucks continue to be popular in Wisconsin and elsewhere. For patients in the greater Milwaukee area, Dr. Tracy McCall offers abdominoplasty as a way to attain a smoother, more toned appearance around your middle.
How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?
A tummy tuck with Dr. McCall in Pewaukee is done as an outpatient procedure, and you will go home with your family after the surgery. During the operation, the excess skin is removed and the abdominal muscles are tightened. There will be a permanent scar that stretches from hip to hip, passing just above your pubic hair. There will also be a small scar around your belly button. Some people require only minimal tightening and may be candidates for a mini abdominoplasty, which leaves a smaller scar, but also involves less tightening of the abdomen.
What are Pewaukee Tummy Tuck Costs?
Depending on whether you have a full or mini tummy tuck, the costs for abdominoplasty in Pewaukee can vary. Dr. McCall will give you a complete evaluation during your initial meeting to help determine what the procedure would entail for you. Then you will be able to receive a breakdown of Pewaukee tummy tuck prices.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
An abdominoplasty is designed for people who have stretched abdominal muscles and skin. It is particularly helpful to women who have lost the contour of their abdomen after pregnancy or have stretch marks on the lower abdomen. At Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery in Pewaukee, a tummy tuck is best performed on people who are at or near their appropriate weight.

What is the Recovery Process for a Tummy Tuck?
After your abdominoplasty with Dr. McCall in Pewaukee, your incisions will be bandaged, and you will be wrapped in a compression garment. This will help reduce swelling and support your abdomen as it heals. You will also experience some bruising, as well as numbness below your belly button. Most people prefer to sleep in a recliner for the first few nights after the procedure, as the skin of your abdomen will be stretched tightly. You will generally require two to four weeks of recovery time.
