Baltimore tummy tuck expert, Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber, has been performing tummy tucks for many years. His vast experience with this procedure allows him to remove as much skin as possible from the belly area and allows him to tighten the abdominal muscles to make the belly as flat as possible. The tummy tuck procedure is wonderful for women who have had children and can’t get rid of stubborn stretch marks and excess skin despite a great diet and exercise. It’s also good for men and women who have lost a lot of weight from diet and exercise or bariatric surgery who have excess, hanging skin in the abdominal area as well as loose muscles.
During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Schreiber will take an extensive history and do a thorough physical examination in order to fully assess your areas of concern. Then, he will take you back into his office to discuss your aesthetic goals. He takes as much time as you need in order to answer all of your questions. In fact, his cosmetic surgery patients rave about how Dr. Schreiber does not make them feel rushed and he takes a lot of time to listen to them and answer their questions thoroughly.
For the tummy tuck Baltimore patients are usually taken to the cosmetic surgery center at Northwest Hospital for the procedure. This is a state-of-the-art facility that has the most caring operating room staff around! Dr. Schreiber will do some surgical markings in the preop area and then he will perform your tummy tuck. If you combine other cosmetic procedures with it, like a breast augmentation or liposuction, Dr. Schreiber will include this in his markings. The tummy tuck procedure takes about 3-4 hours. Patients can stay overnight or go home the same day, depending upon personal preference and upon the amount of surgery performed.
Recovery from a tummy tuck takes about 7-10 days. Driving can resume at 1 week with light exercise resuming at that time as well. Heavy weightlifting and cross training can resume at 4-6 weeks. Dr. Schreiber will place several small drains underneath the skin to remove any excess fluid. The drains that Dr. Schreiber uses are painless when he removes them! They are also very easy to take care of and clean. You will also be fitted with a binder to help with the healing process. This is worn for the first week constantly and can then be removed for showering and exercising for the next five weeks.
