After pregnancy or significant weight loss, the tissues of the abdomen, including muscle, skin, and fascia (the connective tissue between muscles) stretch and frequently don’t rebound back. A tummy tuck elevates the skin over the muscle, then sutures are used to tighten the muscle and fascia back together, which reduces bulging, then the skin excess is removed. The gives an improved contour to the tummy, and a more attractive, youthful appearance. Dr. Wiener uses the no-drain (progressive tension suture) technique for his tummy tucks. In addition, Dr. Wiener does special nerve block techniques that greatly reduce post-op discomfort.
