As we get older, our skin starts to droop. The muscles and fatty tissue also begin to sag, and we gain excess fat around our midsection. The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery used to recontour the abdomen and correct these issues.
During a tummy tuck procedure, we are able to trim away and tighten numerous types of tissue using a variety of surgical techniques. Excess drooping skin tissue can be removed using surgical excision with a scalpel. Stubborn fatty tissue is suctioned from the area using liposuction. The sagging abdominal tissues are tightened with the aid of internal sutures.
The tummy tuck has a variety of benefits, and you can find out more when you arrange an appointment for a professional consultation. Dr. Jeremy White, a double-board-certified plastic surgeon, will be available to answer any questions you may have. Contact our office to get started.
