Tummy Tucks Rochester Hills, MI
Many people struggle with the appearance of their abdomen despite the time and effort they have dedicated to working out and eating right. The truth is that traditional methods of fat reduction and body contouring are not always effective options.
In some cases, the only way to improve the appearance of the abdomen is to address loose abdominal skin, stubborn pockets of excess fat, and stretched-out abdominal muscles. These issues commonly occur as a result of significant or rapid weight loss and pregnancy.
At Plastic Surgery Arts, we have helped thousands of women and men in the Rochester Hills, Oakland County area regain their confidence with the appearance of their abdomen by performing a tummy tuck.*

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?
The best candidate for a tummy tuck is someone who is in good overall health and near their ideal body weight. A tummy tuck is not a weight-loss procedure. It is designed to create a tighter and more toned midsection by addressing sagging abdominal skin, tiny pockets of excess fat, and loose abdominal muscles.
A tummy tuck is also the ideal procedure for addressing a condition known as diastasis recti, where the muscles along the abdominal wall are put under an immense amount of strain and become separated and loose. This issue commonly occurs as a result of pregnancy and can be incredibly frustrating for women who are trying to regain their pre-pregnancy figure.
A tummy tuck is an excellent option for people who are struggling with the appearance of their abdomen. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Mark has extensive experience and expertise performing this procedure. He is highly regarded for his tummy tucks and they are one of his favorites to perform on women and men.
How a Tummy Tuck Is Performed
A tummy tuck is performed under general anesthesia at our surgical center located in the Rochester Hills area. A horizontal incision is made across the lower portion of the abdomen near the pubic line from hip to hip. Another incision may be made in the belly button for increased access to the area.
The excess loose skin will be surgically excised from the abdomen. The remaining skin will be tightly draped over the abdominal muscles. The incision will be sutured to create a tight, toned, and flat tummy. These results are immediate and as you heal over the next 12 months, the results get better and better!
Recovering from Your Tummy Tuck
Swelling and bruising are to be expected following your procedure. A special compression garment will be provided and should be worn throughout your recovery to help control swelling and provide support. Dr. Mark can also provide medication to help manage any pain and discomfort.
It will take around two to three weeks before you can resume most of your normal activities. Light activity is encouraged, as it will help the body recover. However, you must avoid all strenuous activities for a minimum of four to six weeks.
