ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- Dr. James A. Matas, a provider of Orlando plastic surgery, offers a range of abdominoplasty procedures at his practice, the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery. While some candidates may be eligible and opt for partial abdominoplasty, Dr. Matas wants to make sure that his patients are well-educated about tummy tuck procedures and have realistic expectations about their experience and their recovery. Dr. Matas believes that well-informed patients are better able to decide which procedure is the right choice for their individual circumstance.
The tummy tuck procedure encompasses different degrees of abdominal tightening along with the removal of excess skin and fat. If a prospective patient has a mild amount of lower abdominal skin excess then a full abdominoplasty may not be necessary and a more limited procedure is performed. Dr. Matas strives to be honest with his patients and let them know that the tummy tuck is not a minor procedure. The surgical nature of the procedure is why he believes it is important patients consider an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who can give a reliable consultation and help formulate reasonable expectations, as well as a surgeon who is experienced in liposuction.
Dr. Matas says many of his abdominoplasty patients are mothers who are looking to tighten the abdominal wall after child bearing and weight gains. He advises that women who expect to have children in the future wait before undergoing the procedure. Before any surgical work is performed, he encourages his patients engage in an exercise routine to begin the weight loss process. Recovery care begins immediately after surgery, with nurse-side care. Follow up sessions of postoperative massage are performed as part of the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery's treatment package. Within two weeks, Dr. Matas urges patients to resume light exercise, waiting a full six weeks before engaging in more rigorous exercise regimes. Dr. Matas, a board-certified Orlando plastic surgeon, also provides patients with topical scar treatment options and follows his patients' progress during the healing process. At the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Matas seeks to operate his practice with honesty, ethical standards, a caring demeanor, and exceptional surgical skills.
