A common concern for cosmetic surgery patients, and a legitimate one, is that of loose, hanging skin on the front of the abdomen. This issue can easily be eradicated with the use of an abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck. The condition of this loose skin can be the result of:

  • Significant weight loss
  • Pregnancy
  • Aging abdominal skin

A tummy tuck removes the excess, unsightly, sagging skin and abdominal fat to restore a flat contour to the tummy area. When indicated, this surgery can also repair or narrow the gap between the abdominal muscles, which many women experience during pregnancy, giving the tummy an odd “split” appearance. The belly button is moved to a new, natural-appearing location. An abdominoplasty can also benefit those who have not been able to achieve the taut, contoured tummy they want through diet and exercise alone.

Mini-Tummy Tuck

A mini-tummy tuck, is for people have only has loose skin present in the lower portion of the abdomen. This procedure requires less surgical intervention, and typically does not require addressing the belly button. In either this or a more traditional scenario, an initial consultation will help you and your surgeon decide which procedure is best for your needs.

After the Abdominoplasty

After the surgery, patients can expect a life and body they’re more comfortable with. Aesthetically, the visibility of the surgery scars is minimal. The resulting abdominoplasty scar, for example, can be low enough on the abdomen to be hidden well. A tummy tuck alone, or sometimes in conjunction with liposuction, can help patients to achieve that hour-glass, bikini-ready figure they’ve been longing for.
