(Tummy Tuck)

Indications: Accumulation of excess fat and loose, sagging skin in the abdominal area resistant to diet and exercise. The purpose of this surgery is to remove excess skin and fat from the level of the pubic hairline to the level of the lower ribs. In this procedure the underlying abdominal muscular wall is also tightened. The belly button (umbilicus) is also recontoured and repositioned slightly. This procedure not only tightens the skin in the up/down direction, but also side to side, providing a cinching effect of the lower abdomen. If liposuction is desired during this procedure it should be limited to the flank regions only. Surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Over night stay in hospital.

Procedure: Flattens, firms and smooths the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat, and tightening the abdominal wall muscles

Anesthesia: General

Note: Overnight Stay

Side Effects: Temporary swelling, soreness, numbness. Tiredness for several weeks

Duration of Results: Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight you can expect to retain our new shape for many years. Aging may cause the skin to loosen somewhat.
