Many patients express concerns about not being able to reclaim their body after weight loss, aging, genetics and heredity impacts, or pregnancy. Despite a healthy lifestyle, some excess skin and fat resulting from weight fluctuations cannot be removed without a surgical procedure.
There are several options to combat the excess skin and fat around the abdomen, and to help you feel confident and appreciate your body figure, our team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging offers A Tummy Tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty.
The Tummy Tuck Procedure helps to remove excess lower abdominal skin and fat and tighten weak abdominal muscles. This results in an abdominal profile that is slim, smooth, and firm.
Tummy Tuck Options:
This Tummy Tuck incision is made in the pubic area of the abdomen. The incision could range from being a few inches to the entire span of the abdomen. The surgeon will remove excess skin, tighten the muscles, and might use liposuction to help contour the area. This is ideal for patients who have some laxity in the abdomen but have always been in good shape. The patient should have minimal to moderate excess skin.
This Procedure is used to make the abdomen thinner and firmer. Incisions for this procedure are made across the lower abdomen and around the navel. The excess skin in the abdomen is removed, then the muscles are tightened. Liposuction may be used to help contour the abdomen. This type of Tummy Tuck is ideal for post pregnancy, weight loss patients, or patients with genetic laxity of the skin.
These incisions are made longer than traditional Tummy Tuck incisions, to address the areas around the hips. During an extended Abdominoplasty, excess skin and fat are removed from the abdomen, muscle repair is usually always performed, and tissue is removed from the lower sides and back to shape the waistline. It is ideal for patients who have excess skin on the love handles.
This procedure uses the deeper skin tissue to support the repair and involves contouring the hips and flanks.
Am I a good candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
The Abdominoplasty procedure at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging can help a range of patients who have concerns about their abdominal profile. The Tummy tuck can be most beneficial when the patient has a large amount of excess skin around the abdominal area. The best patients for this procedure are in general health, at a stable weight, and are done having children. By scheduling a consultation appointment, we can ensure that this procedure will be beneficial for you.
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
The cost depends on how extensive your procedure will be and any other procedures you may want to have at the same time, such as liposuction. During your free consultation with our team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, our surgeon will examine your abdominal profile, skin type, and goals before determining the final cost of the procedure.
