Are you a candidate for a tummy tuck?
If you are unhappy with the loose skin and fat on your stomach area, you may be a candidate for a tummy tuck. Many people, both women and men, discover that even with diet and exercise, it is impossible to fully resolve a flabby tummy area. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure for the following common body issues:
- Loose, sagging skin present after significant weight loss.
- Stretched, loose skin and stretch marks in the tummy area after pregnancy.
- Loss of natural skin elasticity leaving the tummy skin stretched and sagging.
- Separated abdominal muscles giving a “double tummy” appearance.
- Protruding belly.
A personal evaluation of your general health and the condition of your abdominal skin, fat, and muscles will allow us to determine which advanced procedure will provide the best results. For less extreme cases, a mini-tummy tuck may be the best procedure. Each patient has a unique physical situation, and a treatment plan will be developed to correctly address it -- we use the most advanced surgical techniques available.
The procedure is performed under sedation, and we focus on patient comfort and safety. Whether the technique you need is a mini-tuck or traditional tummy tuck, your surgery will be performed with the most stringent safety procedures in our state-of-the-art surgical suites.
Traditional Tummy Tuck
A traditional tummy tuck transforms the body to restore a firmer, slimmer, and far more youthful profile in the abdominal area. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthetic. This technique removes excess fat and skin, as well as tightening the muscle structure in the stomach area to restore a trim, firmer appearance to the abdomen. The procedure involves the surgical removal of the problem areas, including the excess fat deposits, loose skin, and for many patients, a repair of the abdominal muscles. For patients with stretch marks, although these cannot be completely repaired, the procedure is capable of diminishing the appearance by the overall tightening and removal of excess skin.
Mini Tummy Tuck
A mini tummy tuck is the appropriate procedure for many patients, and essentially involves a shorter incision. This procedure is ideal for those who have excess skin and fat below the belly button area. The procedure may not require general anesthetic. A full evaluation of your condition and your concerns about your comfort during surgery are important to us. Your individual treatment plan, including the type of anesthetic used in our state-of-the-art surgery suites will be discussed with you thoroughly prior to procedure.
