Tummy Tuck in Chicago, IL
What Is A Tummy Tuck?
If you struggle with fatty, flabby areas despite your best efforts with diet and exercise, you aren't alone. Whether it's a result of pregnancy, age, or weight loss, it's normal for your body to have trouble bouncing back, especially when stubborn fat gets in the way. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic enhancement that reshapes the stomach area, creating a flatter, more toned figure. At Iteld Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL, Dr. Lawrence Iteld performs tummy tuck surgery that varies on the amount of excess skin and fat present. This cosmetic treatment allows individuals the chance to have a new, youthful shape and renewed confidence. If you want to eliminate excess fat and skin and attain a slimmer silhouette, contact our facility to schedule your abdominoplasty consultation.
How Does A Tummy Tuck Work?
Tummy tuck surgery at Iteld Plastic Surgery is performed using narcotics-free anesthesia to ensure an easier, low-risk recovery. There are several possible methods Dr. Iteld might use for your abdominoplasty, which will be discussed during your initial consultation at our Chicago, IL practice. To start, the incision size is determined based on the amount of excess skin. Some individuals with an abundance of sagging skin might benefit best from a full tummy tuck. This method places the incision along the lower abdomen from hip to hip, just above the pubic region. Some individuals with minimal skin looseness may be better candidates for a smaller incision. These patients still benefit from tummy tuck surgery but will simply have a smaller scar. Regardless of the nature of the surgery, all abdominoplasty procedures at Iteld Plastic Surgery involve the excision of sagging skin, liposuction, and repair of the abdominal wall.

World class tummy tuck! Instructions extremely clear & outcome is amazing - I had the best experience at Dr. Iteld’s office. He spent considerable time with me to understand my concerns and design a surgical approach that was tailored to me and my desires. In addition, his surgery coordinator, Linda, was phenomenal. She accompanied me through the entire visit, ensuring that I felt at ease and that I understood every step of the process from consultation through scheduling of the surgery. I also had several non-surgical treatments with his nurse, Kimmy Vu. I cannot say enough good things about her.
