The tummy tuck procedure can dramatically change the appearance of the "sagging abdomen" and create a more aesthetical silhouette in the waist area for both men and women. Results of an abdominoplasty are long-term when followed by regular exercise and a well-balanced diet. An abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia.
If the fat distribution is confined to the area around the navel, a less demanding procedure will be sufficient, called a partial abdominoplasty. In some cases, a combination of partial/complete abdominoplasty and liposuction may be more beneficial, which can remove fat from the hips, thereby improving the body contours.
Our plastic surgeon will recommend a procedure that is right for you and whose results will be as close to the desired body shape as possible.
The best candidates for abdominoplasty are women or men who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won't respond to diet or exercise. A tummy tuck is procedure we suggest for body reshaping not for weight loss. The procedure can also resolve stretched muscles and skin of women post pregnancy.
