Tummy Tuck: Do you have a case of “mommy tummy”? After pregnancy many women find themselves with a permanent pooch, causing them to look slightly pregnant, even when they aren’t. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging change your midsection, but that doesn’t mean you’re doomed to a lifetime of a saggy belly. Ask us about a tummy tuck and get your flat stomach back. Call today.
What Is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that restores a youthful, flattened appearance to the abdominal area. Men and women both love the results they see from this procedure. It is commonly performed after weight loss or pregnancy.
During the procedure, a long incision is made across the lower abdomen, often extending from hip to hip. Excess skin and fat are removed. The abdominal muscles are tightened and any separation is corrected. The skin is stretched tight and the belly button is repositioned if needed. A tummy tuck is often paired with liposuction to provide additional contouring to the area and achieve the desired shape.
Do I Need a Tummy-Tuck?
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your midsection? Ask us about a tummy-tuck. The first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified surgeons. They’ll provide an examination and review your medical history. Then they can recommend the best options for tightening up your tummy. Many men and women can benefit from the procedure. Some patients may be able to achieve good results with abdominal liposuction alone.
A tummy tuck may be right for you if:
- You have excess skin and/or fat on the abdomen
- Diet and exercise aren’t enough to tighten up your tummy
- You have lost a great deal of weight
- You want to restore a pre-pregnancy appearance to your abdomen
- You want a flat, tight midsection again.
Do you see yourself on this list? Call and schedule your consultation today.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mini Tummy Tuck?
A full abdominoplasty is the gold standard for shaping and contouring the abdominal area. This procedure provides a dramatic transformation to the entire front midsection. Some patients may not need a full tummy tuck to achieve optimal rejuvenation. If you have good contours and minimal laxity, a mini tummy tuck may be an option. This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen only. Abdominal muscles are tightened, but they are not cut. The belly button is not repositioned. This procedure is less invasive than a full tummy tuck and provides exceptional results for some patients.
