Dr. Wali’s Technique
Dr. Dev Wali performs the tummy tuck procedure with a keen eye on creating a sculpted form. He takes what is there and creates curves and contours by selectively removing tissue by surgical sculpting and liposculpting. Also he has mastered a unique method to create a beautiful belly button which is the cosmetic center of the abdomen. He prides himself on his meticulous technique and dedication to patient safety and satisfaction. He is known in the community and by fellow plastic surgeons as a compassionate artistic surgeon who goes above and beyond to care for his patients.
Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. As the body recuperates, the patient can expect some swelling, pain, and discomfort. Medication can be prescribed to relieve any pain caused by the procedure. The stitches will be removed shortly after the surgery depending on the procedure(s) involved. Normal activities can generally be resumed within two weeks. It may take up to a year for the body to completely adapt to the new abdominal configuration. With proper diet and exercise the striking results of the surgery will be long lasting.
