The surgery was under general anesthesia because Dr. Patronella thoroughly removes as much fat and skin as he deems necessary. Don't let anyone tell you that nurse sedation is ok for a tummy tuck. You don't want to wake up half-way through the surgery! That can happen with nurse sedation.
I was pretty sore for three weeks, but then, slowly, the discomfort subsided and in four weeks, I went back to the gym to walk on the treadmill.
That was a few years years ago, and my tummy looks better now than ever because the scar has faded. That is one of the side-effects of a tummy tuck that can't be escaped: you will have a scar that varies from patient to patient. But let me tell you this: it's worth the trade off. I may have a faintly appearing scar, but I look great in my jeans!
When you enter Dr. Patronella's office, you know right away this feels right and you will see for yourself his professionalism, expert knowlege and proven skill creates a package of success all wrapped up with a warm, friendly smile! I can attest to having wonderful results with several procedures with Dr. Patronella.One procedure I love to talk about is my tummy tuck. After 8 years I can still show off my flat, tight tummy and even if I say so myself, I look great in my jeans!
