That extra bit of flab on your stomach or the love handles on your hips can leave you feeling particularly self-conscious about your appearance. Many times, these areas of the body won’t respond to dieting or exercise. Perhaps the sagging is a result of body changes due to pregnancy,weight loss and/or aging. Whatever the case may be, a tummy tuck can help you regain your figure.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that surgically removes loose skin and tightens the abdomen. The procedure involves removing sagging excess skin from the abdominal area, repositioning the belly button and potentially tightening the abdominal muscles. The surgery results in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour but should only be attempted if you have reached a stable and ideal weight, do not smoke, and are physically healthy. Abdominplasty is usually combined with liposuction to achieve the most natural and proportionate look.
Speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Andre Aboolian to determine if you are a candidate for an abdominoplasty. Please visit our website to view the before/after photos of body contouring performed with abdominoplasty and liposuction.
