Plastic Surgery & Cosmetic Center

Tummy Tuck

in Reno, Nevada

My experience with Dr. Janiga and his office, has been excellent in every way. From office visits to surgery, post-op, scheduling. It’s all been absolutely professional and worth every penny.

The Procedure

Tummy tucks are performed at a Reno outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia by Dr. Timothy Janiga. The procedure generally involves a hip-to-hip incision to allow for muscle and skin tightening and fat removal.

An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck typically takes around two hours with two to three hours of post-surgery recovery time before you can go home.

Abdominoplasty Overview

Patients choose a tummy tuck to smooth out their abdomen.

At Janiga MDs, Dr. Timothy Janiga specializes in plastic surgery and Dr. Jennifer Janiga specializes in dermatology, giving their practice a unique, comprehensive perspective on their patients’ cosmetic needs in the Reno, Nevada area.

Recovery & Results

Dr. Timothy Janiga will examine you during your post-op visit, and will advise you on when you can return to work. He typically does not want patients to lift more than five to 10 pounds for the first six weeks following the surgery. Depending on your profession, your return to work can be expected within two to six weeks. Full results are expected within three months of your tummy tuck.

Once fully recovered, you will likely notice a tighter, slimmer waistline and abdomen.
