Tummy Tuck

The majority of tummy tuck patients are mothers after pregnancy or people who have lost a significant amount of weight, but are left struggling with the burden of hanging skin. There is really no diet or exercise that can help them to effectively restore a firmer look and feel. A tummy tuck can help eliminate the bulge of excess skin to provide you with the smooth, flat belly that you want.

Some people may only need a mini tummy tuck while others will benefit more from the full procedure. This will depend on where on your abdomen the sagging skin occurs as well as its severity.

A complete tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can take from 1 to 5 hours. A mini-tummy tuck (partial abdominoplasty) can be completed between 1 to 2 hours.

Tummy Tuck Procedure

To remove the excess skin, a horizontal incision will be made below your belly button – just low enough so future scarring can be easily concealed beneath a bathing suit or underwear. One of our doctors will then repair the underlying abdominal wall, strengthening the muscles for a solid foundation. Once we have repaired the underlying structures of your abdomen, we will carefully pull the skin to achieve a taut appearance, trimming away any excess skin and tissue left over.

While a tummy tuck is not designed to address stubborn fat, liposuction can be performed during your tummy tuck to remove any lingering fat that may reside in your abdomen.

The Tummy Tuck has proven to be a life-changing procedure, helping men and women to take back control of their bodies and regain confidence.
