With age, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy, the abdomen can become perpetually flabby and misshapen – no matter how often you exercise. When this occurs, a tummy tuck with Dr. Fenner can restore your firm and flat midsection.

The benefits

A tummy tuck can transform your figure and deliver the stomach you’ve been unable to achieve through diet and exercise alone. When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Geoffrey Fenner, the procedure has the power to:

  • Tighten loose abdominal muscles
  • Trim away excess skin on the stomach
  • Remove unwanted fatty deposits and love handles
  • Minimize the appearance of stretch marks

A personalized tummy tuck experience

In an effort to provide the best tummy tuck experience available, Dr. Fenner offers a variety of customizable procedures. His extensive preoperative consultation with each of his Chicago tummy tuck patients helps him better understand his or her goals while creating a customized treatment plan that may include a mini tummy tuck or a modified abdominoplasty, depending on the patient's current health and body contours.

The procedure: What to expect

Your tummy tuck will be done under general anesthesia to ensure a comfortable and safe surgical experience. During the procedure, Dr. Fenner will remove unwanted fat, trim away excess skin, and tighten lax muscles. Depending on your needs and anatomy, he will utilize one of the following approaches:

Traditional tummy tuck

The traditional tummy tuck requires an incision that extends from hip to hip, along with a cut around the navel. The procedure allows Dr. Fenner to tighten and reshape the entire abdominal area and reposition the belly button, if needed.

Mini tummy tuck

The mini version of this procedure is the best tummy tuck for Kenilworth, IL men and women who are close to their ideal body weight and exclusively want to address excess flab beneath the belly button. Because this approach targets a limited area, it is associated with a quicker recovery period.

Extended tummy tuck

The extended tummy tuck is ideal for North Shore men and women who want to address the stomach area and love handles. The incision extends behind the hips and offers a comprehensive transformation.

Once unwanted fat and excess skin have been removed, Dr. Fenner will often reposition the navel as well. This involves an additional incision along the central abdomen to detach and reattach the belly button. It is important for patients to understand that navel reattachment is a delicate art form and requires an experienced plastic surgeon to ensure natural results. The length of your procedure will depend on the type of tummy tuck you’re having done. While a mini tummy tuck can take 90 minutes to complete, the extended version of the surgery can take a few hours. Once your abdomen has been completely rejuvenated, Dr. Fenner will close the incisions carefully to minimize scarring.

Refining your tummy tuck results

Some of Dr. Fenner's patients undergo their tummy tuck procedure concurrently with liposuction for enhanced body contouring results. In addition to performing body contouring procedures for Chicago liposuction and abdominoplasty patients, Dr. Fenner also provides a variety of aesthetic procedures for the face and breast.
