Tummy Tuck


Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty , is a procedure to remove excess fat and skin,and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.

  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Significant fluctuations in weight
  • Heredity
  • Prior surgery

Tummy tuck surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if:

– You are physically healthy and at a stable weight

– You have realistic expectations

– You do not smoke

What a tummy tuck won’t do:

Tummy tuck procedure is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropiate exercise program.

This surgery cannot correct stretch marks, although these may be removed or somewhat improved if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised, generally the treated areas below the belly button.

What happens during tummy tuck surgery?

Step 1 – Anesthesia

The choices include intrave-nous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you. Medications are administered for your comfort during abdominoplasty surgery.

Step 2 – The incision

A full tummy tuck procedure requires a horizontally-oriented incision in the area between the pubic hair-line and navel.

The shape and length of the incision will be determined by the degree of correction necessary.

Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips will be used to close the skin incisions.

Step 3 – See the results

After this surgery you will obtain a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with your body type and weight.
