Tummy Tuck (Lipoabdominoplasty) Hopkinsville, KY

Would you like a flatter, tighter tummy? Lipoabdominoplasty combines the benefits of liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) for enhanced results. Lipoabdominoplasty is a revolutionary procedure that can help you achieve a smoother, more toned abdomen, even if you have areas of fat and loose skin that seem to stay put no matter how much you exercise. This is different from a standard tummy tuck, which *does not include* aggressive liposuction. Dr. Mitchell Kaye and his team are here to help you reach the results you desire for a more attractive appearance and improved self-confidence.

Is lipoabdominoplasty right for me?

Lipoabdominoplasty has a number of advantages over liposuction or abdominoplasty alone. As you consider whether lipoabdominoplasty is the right choice for you, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have excess fat or skin in the abdominal area that you would like to remove?
  • Do you have loose skin in the abdomen following pregnancy or weight loss?
  • Do you struggle with areas of fat that seem unresponsive to strict diet and exercise regimens?
  • Would you like to achieve a flatter, tighter tummy?
  • Can you define your desired result? In other words, do you know what you want to look like after the procedure?
  • Are you in good health?

If your answer to one or more of these questions is, “yes,” then you may be a good candidate for lipoabdominoplasty.

How is lipoabdominoplasty done?

Our plastic surgeon performs lipoabdominoplasty as an outpatient service in his IMQ accredited outpatient surgery center. The procedure is performed under total intravenous anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. During lipoabdominoplasty, Dr. Mitchell Kaye performs liposuction on the abdominal area, repairs muscles as needed, and removes any loose, excess skin.

After your procedure, you will be discharged home. You can expect a follow-up call on the evening of surgery, as well as an office visit with Dr. Mitchell Kaye on the day after surgery. If you are one of our many patients who travel significant distances to have your procedure with us, we recommend staying overnight in a local hotel to avoid long car rides after the surgery. We have special discounted rates with local hotels, and our Patient Care Coordinator will be able to provide you with the information you need.

What is recovery like after lipoabdominoplasty?

Recovery from lipoabdominoplasty is typically faster than would be expected from traditional abdominoplasty. We encourage you to refrain from strenuous activities for about one week; we recommend one week of rest and relaxation following your procedure. You can usually expect to return to work and resume light daily activities after one week. As part of your follow-up visits with Dr. Mitchell Kaye, he will also provide you with instructions on when you can resume your normal gym workouts. We are committed to ensuring that you heal as comfortably and quickly as possible.

What will my lipoabdominoplasty results be like?

Following lipoabdominoplasty, your abdomen should be smoother and flatter. Many of our patients love their enhanced contours and tighter tummies! Removing excess fat and loose, saggy skin can give you the confidence you need to finally wear a two-piece bathing suit again, get rid of your “fat” clothes for good, and take your shirt off without embarrassment.
