Like many of us, this patient struggled with excess fat around her stomach and abdomen. Sometimes stubborn fat hangs around in unflattering places and you can’t get rid of it with regular diet and exercise. We have many patients come in seeking help for their stomach areas. When this patient came in for a consultation, we devised a unique plan for her procedure involving liposuction and an abdominoplasty to address her concerns and leave her with a slim, feminine shape.

A tummy tuck is one of our body contouring procedures \, used to tighten abdominal muscles that have been weakened or separated. To do this, an opening is made above the pubic area, as well as around the belly button. During this process, the belly button is repositioned and the abdominal muscles are tightened up, resulting in the removal of fat and excess skin in the upper and lower abdomen. With all tummy tucks, only necessary incisions are made to help reduce scarring while still providing beautiful results. This patient’s belly button scar is so well hidden, you don’t even notice it! If you have hesitations around the scarring, there are other options that involve less incisions, including a mini-tummy tuck in which only the bottom half of your abdomen is addressed or an umbilical float tummy tuck where an incision is not made around your belly button.

As part of this patient’s procedure, we utilized liposuction to help remove fat and leave her with a firm, slim abdomen. If you’re looking to address your stomach area and this sounds like something you may be interested in, please give us a call at (404) 257-9888.
