What is a 3D Abdominoplasty?
A 3D abdominoplasty, also known as a full tummy tuck, addresses the stubborn fat and loose skin in the stomach area that many people have issues with. Our skilled team at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics can provide marvelous results, helping to make you feel younger, more attractive, and give you a firmer, more appealing stomach. This is a great option if you struggle to get rid of large, annoying fatty areas in your mid-section with a healthy diet and exercise or if you have loose, baggy skin on your stomach due to natural aging or pregnancy. During your tummy tuck, plastic surgeon Dr. Sawan will start by removing excess fat and skin from your stomach and will then tighten your abdominal muscles. During your 3D abdominoplasty, your lower back and flanks will also be addressed, thus creating a well-rounded 3D change to your body. After your tummy tuck, you'll feel more confident in bathing suits and clothing that highlight the waist.
"I am so happy I chose Dr. Sawan for my breast reduction surgery. Two people recommended him to me which prompted my initial consultation. I knew he had an impressive career and expertise, but at that first meeting I found there to be an ease about him that made me trust him immediately. He was the surgeon for me. His staff is great, too. Knowledgeable, efficient and nice! You just know you’re in good hands. My whole experience from pre-surgery visits to follow-ups and the actual surgery itself has been so positive. Dr. Sawan listened and created exactly what I wanted. I’m super happy with my results. I highly recommend Sawan Surgical Aesthetics!"- B.R. / Google / Jul 12, 2020
"Let me tell you about Dr. Sawan. He took on my case after several other plastic surgeons either were too scared to operate on me due to a health condition I have or wouldn’t even see me until after I went through radiation. Dr Sawan not only saw me, he was confident he could not only perform the surgery but was sure I would be fine and heal easily. He and his office worked with and got insurance to cover things. His office staff was amazing to help us through the insurance chaos. Even through surgery delays due to Covid, his office stayed in touch with me and scheduled my surgery as soon as the surgery center was open. He was upbeat and encouraging on the day of my surgery knowing I was nervous due to my husband not being able to be with me. He took time to talk to him and explain everything to him and he was so sweet and gentle through my hospital stay. He sent all the removed tissue off to pathology and it all came back negative which resulted in me having NO RADIATION!!! 🎉🎉 I’ve healed perfectly, had no issues with my health condition and feel like I’ve been given a new lease on life! I have many amazing doctors on my cancer team but Dr Sawan has gone above and beyond to help us be informed and stay positive. Today I got an “Everything looks great” and a clearance to go back to go back to “whatever I want to do”. I highly recommend Dr. Kamal Sawan if you ever need a plastic surgeon. He’s the BEST!"- K.S. / Google / Jul 10, 2020
"After losing 100 pounds, I was left with lots of flab and extra skin. I had a 3D body lift. The surgery went smoothly With no complications at all! Dr Sawan was able to remove 16 pounds of superfluous skin and left me with perky breasts and tight abs. His work is AMAZING! I can’t even believe I am looking at myself when I walk by the mirror. I highly recommend Dr Sawan for any cosmetic procedure. He has a very helpful, kind staff and you will be treated with highest respect."- M.R. / Google / Jun 29, 2020
"I began my journey 9 years ago with weight loss surgery. I lost 128 pounds after weight loss surgery and within the last year I started working out in the gym, lifting weights. I wasn't seeing the results I thought I would see due to the fact that I had extra skin from being overweight previously. I went to see Dr. Sawan and talked to him. He gave me his recommendation and showed me pictures. He felt that I had very little fat and was actually toned from lifting, but my extra skin was getting in the way of my body showing the hard work I had put in. My surgery was May 14th. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sawan. He did a fantastic job! The office staff were extremely kind, professional, and considerate. He let me ask every little question I had to ask and was very patient and caring. I look better than I have ever looked in my life. I'm excited to be back in the gym and enhance what Dr. Sawan has done for me."- K.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2020
"Highly recommend Dr Sawan! Amazing doctor and super nice staff!! You will for sure feel at home!"- A.S. / Google / Feb 01, 2020
Can I Get a 3D Abdominoplasty?
You may be qualified to get a 3D abdominoplasty if you continue to struggle to get rid of stubborn belly fat. Sometimes known as a "celebrity tummy tuck," a full tummy tuck is suitable for both men and women who have a moderate amount of excess skin in their midsection. It's important that if you're considering a tummy tuck that you are at or near your ideal weight since losing or gaining weight could impact your results. If you have further questions about whether or not you're a good candidate for a 3D abdominoplasty, contact Sawan Surgical Aesthetics for a consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Sawan.
How is a 3D Abdominoplasty Performed?
Considered an outpatient procedure, a tummy tuck is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility, taking around two hours to complete. At the start of your surgery, an incision will be made that extends from one hip bone to another, giving Dr. Sawan full access to your midsection. Liposuction will be used to remove fat, and the abdominal muscles are pulled and tightly secured. The belly button is usually repositioned for natural placement, as well. From there, Dr. Sawan will address your lower back and flanks to ensure that both your front and back are symmetrical and achieve the look you desire.
What Can I Expect After a 3D Abdominoplasty?
After surgery, we will have you wear a compression garment for the duration discussed with Dr. Sawan in order to successfully heal. The first 48 hours should be devoted to rest. While you should do your best to move around in order to help promote blood circulation, you should only attempt to initially stand at a 45-degree angle in order to protect your incisions. Pain medication will be provided to help with any post-operative discomfort. You will probably notice some results immediately, but you should see full results as your swelling dissipates, which can take a few weeks. You will likely be able to get back to your everyday activities after 4 – 6 weeks.
