A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty removes the excess fat and skin around your stomach area. Receiving a tummy tuck also restores weakened or separated muscles which create a much smoother and firmer abdomen.
Many people develop a pooch, and want to get rid of. Years of weight fluctuation or pregnancy can leave people with a stomach of which they are not proud. It can cause them to become self-conscious and unhappy with their appearance. If you are experiencing this excess weight in your stomach area, a tummy tuck may be the answer you have been searching for.
The first step in receiving a tummy tuck is to be put under anesthesia. We will then make a horizontally-oriented incision between the pubic hairline and the belly button. We will determine the length of the incision by how much excess skin is present. Once we lift the abdominal skin, the underlying weakened abdominal muscles are able to be repaired. The upper abdominal skin is pulled down, the excess skin is trimmed and the remaining skin is sutured together. You will be given a new opening for your belly button. Finally, we will close your incision.
We specialize in body contouring and understand that no two patients are the same! This is why during our consultation we want to hear the exact results that you are hoping for. We will work with you to ensure you are happy with the final results.
