Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Surgeons in Indianapolis, IN

Tummy tuck has become a frequently performed plastic surgery procedure in Indianapolis. Although it is a serious body contouring surgical procedure, new advancements in technology and surgical technique have made the recovery time much shorter. Indianapolis tummy tuck surgeons offer this procedure as a way to flatten and tighten the abdominal area. During the procedure, an incision is made along the lower part of the abdomen, the skin is raised, the abdominal muscles ("abs") are tightened, excess skin and fat are removed and the skin is sutured back in place. The scar, if the procedure is performed properly, should be minimal and hidden by the bikini line. Abdominoplasty is very popular among women who, after their child-bearing years, desire to flatten their mid-sections and regain a more youthful contour. The procedure is also performed after bariatric surgery, such as lap band or gastric bypass, in order to tighten the abdominal area after massive weight loss. Panniculectomy is similar to tummy tuck, but tightening of the muscles is not involved in this procedure. Other popular less invasive cosmetic procedures in Indianapolis include Botox, laser skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion.

Sports While in Indianapolis for a Tummy Tuck

Because of the abundance of athletic activities, a tummy tuck in Indianapolis is a great way to combine surgery with a sporty vacation. Indianapolis is known as the crossroads of the country, and so it is no surprise that many sports organizations' national headquarters are located there. The National Collegiate Athletic Association is in Indianapolis and the NCAA Final Fours for both men's and women's basketball have been hosted there multiple times. The national offices for many sports institutions also call Indianapolis home, including USA Gymnastics, USA Diving, USA Synchronized Swimming and USA Track & Field. These programs manage all events nationally and are responsible for training the Olympic teams. If watching professional sports is more interesting, the Colts and Pacers, in the NFL and NBA respectively, are popular with locals and tourists, with many traveling to Indianapolis just for the games. Perhaps more famous however, are the two big racing events that the city hosts every year, the Indianapolis 500 and the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard. With well over 250,000 people in attendance, these two events are the largest single day sporting events in the world. As the home of national offices and teams, Indianapolis is a powerhouse of sports activities for the tummy tuck patient.
