Tummy Tuck 

Losing weight and giving birth can cause the skin around the stomach to droop and sag, which can negatively affect your appearance and self-esteem. 

An abdominoplasty by Dr. Bernard Kopchinski removes excess skin and other tissue in the midsection, giving you a slimmer and more toned frame.  

Why should you consider a tummy tuck at our San Antonio, TX plastic surgery center?

How Abdominoplasty Can Help You

Undergoing a tummy tuck has many benefits for those who are self-conscious about their appearance after weight loss or giving birth:

A More Attractive Figure

Sagging skin can bulge and alter the overall shape of your figure. A tummy tuck removes the loose skin, improving your figure and allowing you to wear clothing that fits better.

Repaired Abdominal Muscles

Patients often have loose, separated abdominal muscles following pregnancy. A tummy tuck can repair separated muscles and incorporate liposuction to give you the fit appearance you desire.

Better Overall Physique

A tummy tuck goes beyond just improving the look of your midsection. The results can complement your entire figure for an overall improved appearance.

A Boost in Self-Confidence

Excess belly skin, stubborn fat, and other post-pregnancy and post-weight loss issues are often a source of self-consciousness and poor body image. A tummy tuck can improve your self-esteem and help you feel much better about your appearance.

How the Procedure Works The Basics of Abdominoplasty

There are many misconceptions surrounding tummy tuck surgery and why it is performed. Here are the facts about this body contouring procedure:

Performed After Weight Loss

A tummy tuck is not a weight loss surgery. It is a body contouring procedure performed after losing a significant amount of weight. It is often done after bariatric surgery, healthy lifestyle changes, or childbirth.

Tightens Tissues

Gaining weight stretches skin out, and the skin doesn't always conform following weight loss. In some cases, surgery is the only solution. It can also repair separated muscles and remove unresponsive fat deposits.

Discreet Scarring

Dr. Kopchinski takes care to place the incisions in areas that can be easily concealed by underwear and swimwear. By following his post-op instructions, you can expect scars to fade significantly after surgery.

His staff is amazing and sweet they will answer any questions no matter how silly you might think they are. Dr K even calls you himself the night after your surgery to check on you. Would highly recommend him to anyone and will be going back to him if I need anything else done.

The Abdominoplasty Treatment Process: A Timeline for the Procedure

To provide realistic expectations about the procedure and what it involves, we have provided a general treatment timeline. We can provide a more detailed breakdown of the procedure during a consultation at our San Antonio plastic surgery office.

The Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, we can examine your midsection and determine if this or another body contouring surgery is right for you. 

Tummy Tuck Surgery

After placing lower abdominal incisions, surgeons remove sagging skin and may also perform liposuction to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat. If needed, the abdominal muscles are sutured back into their proper positions. The abdominal skin is tightened and the incisions are sutured closed. The surgery takes one to five hours.

Returning Home to Recover

Patients return home following surgery for recovery. They will need a few weeks off from work and strenuous physical activity to heal. Side effects will improve steadily throughout the healing process.

Attending Follow-up Visits

Patients will periodically return to our San Antonio office for follow-up visits. These are essential because they allow us to monitor recovery and discuss any issues or concerns following the procedure.

The Final Results

Once patients have fully recovered, they can expect to notice dramatic improvements in their body contours and self-esteem. With proper care, scars fade and can be easily covered by undergarments and bathing suits.
