Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty
Diet and exercise will keep your body as healthy as possible, but it has limited ability to actually shape specific parts of your frame. While you can build muscle with targeted exercise, you can’t lose weight in specific areas that way. Instead, you’ll need to turn to plastic surgery like a tummy tuck. Scheduling a consultation with a plastic surgeon for abdominoplasty will give you a good idea of what you might achieve with a tummy tuck.
How Does This Surgery Work?
Often used after liposuction to remove unwanted abdominal fat, a tummy tuck is designed to tighten the loose skin of the abdomen. This is often done after extensive weight loss as well. You get a tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking abdomen and lower tummy area. Other plastic surgery techniques can remove fat or reduce the appearance of this area, but only a full abdominoplasty will give you the results you want. The key is choosing a skilled plastic surgeon for the process so that surgical scars are minimal and basically unnoticeable. A skilled surgeon also reduces your recovery time by minimizing unnecessary incisions.
The Importance of a Personalized Approach to the Tummy Tuck
Each patient’s body is unique, and our team works hard to provide a customized approach to plastic surgery. When a patient comes in for a consultation for something like a tummy tuck, we discuss their desires and learn what kind of results they’re looking for in the end. This allows us to craft a custom plan for abdominal improvements, ranging from liposuction to excess skin removal. Since Dr. Mallol is a body contouring expert, you can expect a multi-procedure approach that helps you achieve exactly what you have in mind with minimal recovery time.
Who Might Benefit Most from Abdominoplasty?
While almost anyone can carry a little extra skin around the abdomen as they age, this procedure is more common among mothers who experienced skin stretching during pregnancy. After having multiple children, your tummy may develop a bit of a looseness that is hard to address with anything like exercise. If there’s no fat creating the pooch effect you’re noticing, only a tummy tuck can help. If there is a little fat accumulation under the skin, our liposuction services can be combined with abdominoplasty for maximum improvement.
