Initial Consultations for a Tummy Tuck in Troy

Initial Consultations for a Tummy Tuck in Troy

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a body contouring surgery that removes excess skin and fat that is resistant to diet and exercise to reveal a more toned, smooth, sculpted midsection. During the surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell can also restore weakened muscles caused by pregnancy, genetics, or weight gain.

Your first step on your transformative journey starts with scheduling an initial consultation for a tummy tuck in Troy. Call our office today to speak with our team and get started.

What Happens During a Tummy Tuck Consultation?

Your initial consultation for a tummy tuck in Troy is an excellent opportunity to learn more about your surgeon and the practice staff as well as the procedure itself, your results, and expected recovery and downtime. Before your consultation, be sure to write down all the questions you might have about pre-and post-operative instructions. The answers to these questions are generally dependent on the surgical approach Dr. DeLuca-Pytell uses and the extent of the surgery.

During your initial consultation, you will also discuss your surgical goals and review your medical history and current medications. Vitamins, over-the-counter medications, and herbal supplements, as well as alcohol, tobacco, and drug use, can affect your anesthesia, surgery, and recovery. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell will advise you on the best surgical approach for your needs and make any necessary lifestyle recommendations such as quitting smoking. In some instances, she may recommend additional treatments to help you further optimize your results such as liposuction or a mommy makeover.

How to Prepare for Tummy Tuck Surgery

After your initial consultation for a tummy tuck at our Troy office, you may decide to schedule surgery. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell and our team will give you instructions, which will help you prepare for your recovery period.

The instructions you receive may vary depending on the extent of your surgery and your overall health. Generally, you will wear a supportive garment to help protect the area and help it heal, which we will provide you with after surgery.

You may receive prescriptions for antibiotics or pain medication in the days before surgery that you should fill, so you have them on hand. Prepare your home so you do not have to climb stairs for the first several days and ask for help with household chores until your surgeon releases you to lift, push, and do errands on your own.
