What is a Tummy Tuck?
More properly known as an abdominoplasty it’s an operation designed to tighten the skin and muscle layers of the abdomen. I have found that it can provide the most dramatic change of any cosmetic surgical procedure that we perform!
Women most commonly request this procedure to reverse the undesired effects of childbearing. A tummy tuck significantly improves loose skin, stretch marks and muscle weakness as well as removing excess fat from the lower abdomen.
We all know that working out can help muscle weakness, but all the sit-ups in the world will not improve damaged skin. Removing and tightening loose abdominal skin is the key to a successful tummy tuck. The fact that the muscle layers are tightened and fat is removed results in amazing definition along with a narrower waist.
The surgical incision is hidden in the bikini line – you could walk right by someone on the beach, and they would never think you had surgery.
A tummy tuck can also be combined with other procedures such as breast augmentation. The combination of a flatter tummy with a full perky breast shape can make an amazing change to overall body contour.
The correction of abdominal contour problems has become one of the most commonly performed and most satisfying cosmetic surgical procedures in my surgical practice.
