ABDOMINOPLASTY (TUMMY TUCK)
An abdominoplasty or better known as a tummy tuck, is a common aesthetic procedure that removes excess fat and sagging skin from the middle and lower abdomen as well as tightening of the abdominal wall muscles. The results are amazing and can give patients a flatter, firmer and more shapely abdomen.
For best results, we recommend that our patients are close to their ideal body weight but still have a lot of excess skin and fatty deposits that can't be improved by exercise and diet.
Pregnancy can cause the skin and muscles to stretch to a point where they don't go back to normal and this is most common in women that have had caesarean sections. Other causes of an unappealing and overhanging abdomen are the loss os skin elasticity, loss of muscle tone and obesity.
Undergoing an abdominoplasty can give you a great cosmetic outcome however it is also very beneficial for issues that are medical. Performing an abdominoplasty can repair an abdominal hernia, remove a pannus which is a large apron of fat that hangs over causing skin infection, difficulties in walking and overall hygiene. It can also improve muscle functionality in the abdomen and other defects of the abdomen.
