Tummy Tuck

pictures-tummytuck2As we age, diet and exercise sometimes do little to eliminate unwanted fat and loose skin in our abdomens.  This is especially true after pregnancy or significant weight loss.  While we encourage everyone to maintain a healthy lifestyle, if you’d like to achieve a flatter, tighter midsection, then a tummy tuck is your best option.

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, tightens the abdominal wall muscles and removes loose or wrinkled skin.  Liposuction is often performed during the procedure to remove excess fat and enhance the overall results. There are three types of abdominoplasty procedures to choose from:  Standard Tuck, which tightens all of the abdominal wall skin; Mini Tuck, which only tightens the lower abdominal wall skin; Extended Tuck, which tightens the abdomen and the flanks or sides. The recovery period is anywhere from seven to 14 days, depending on the type of procedure you choose. During our consultation we will discuss your options in detail and help evaluate which procedure is best suited to your needs.
