Tummy Tuck Fort Worth
Experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Louis Strock regularly performs the tummy tuck for Fort Worth patients seeking a trimmer and more streamlined abdominal area. The tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty surgery, refers to a group of techniques that address specific areas of laxity of the deep abdominal wall and excess skin.
Women in good general health who want to improve the appearance of their abdominal wall and waist areas can request a consultation online to discuss their surgical options with Dr. Strock. Or feel free to call our office at 817-335-1616 to have a member of our friendly staff help schedule an appointment.
Customizing Your Procedure
Tummy tuck procedures usually include at least some liposuction, in addition to a direct surgical tightening of the deep abdominal wall, depending upon your specific needs. The length of your incision is based on your physical characteristics and depends in part on the amount and location of redundant skin.
If you have tight skin but a lax abdominal wall, you may benefit from minimally invasive techniques that have short incisions with minimal scarring (often known as a mini tummy tuck or partial abdominoplasty).
On the other hand, if you have large areas of lax (loose) skin with many stretch marks from multiple pregnancies, it’s likely you would need a full tummy tuck to accomplish the desired changes to the contour of the abdominal wall. Incisions are oriented according to individual preferences for swimsuit and undergarment styles.
Most body contouring procedures, other than small areas for liposuction, are best performed using general anesthesia. If you undergo a mini tummy tuck, you will return home the day of surgery. Full abdominoplasty patients usually stay overnight for observation following the procedure and return home the following morning.

The Recovery Process
Postoperative recovery entails a short period of activity restriction following the surgery and a pressure garment to be worn for about 4 weeks. Many tummy tuck patients will have surgical drains left in place for about a week, which prevent the accumulation of fluid at the surgical site. Tummy tuck patients are restricted from vigorous exercise for several weeks to allow for the deep abdominal wall repair to completely heal and stabilize.
Tummy Tuck Cost
Because no two abdominoplasty cases are the same, there is no one-size-fits-all tummy tuck cost. The price of the surgery will be impacted by its specifics, including the amount of tissue removed, the anesthesia administered, and the tummy tuck techniques utilized. We also offer financing through CareCredit.
