Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Details about surgery?


A1. Loose/ excess skin in your abdomen/ arm is excised. Scar line will extend from one hip bone to another, lying under your lingerie line in abdominoplasty, similar to your cesarean section site just a bit longer. In Brachioplasty, scar line extends from the medial epicondyle to the posterior axillary fold, not visible from the front.

Q2. Can I get pregnant after having a tummy tuck?


A2. Yes, you can undergo the procedure and enjoy the slim figure while u r planning to get pregnant again. Skin stretches at the time of pregnancy and it will continue to do so even after undergoing a tummy tuck. Any revisions that u desire for getting back into shape again can be performed again.
