Many of us deal with excess fat and skin around the abdominal area. Diet and exercise go a long way, but sometimes not far enough. While we do offer many different procedure options that focus on this area, often the best choice is overlooked.
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck is often used following significant weight loss or pregnancy, but can also be effective for anyone that has loose skin and stubborn fat around the abdominal area. The procedure can help tighten abdominal muscles that have been weakened or separated, restoring a firmer, smoother and more appealing midsection.

 

We offer each patient customized variations of the tummy tuck to address individual and unique needs. Patients who are only looking for fat and excess skin removal below the bikini line, but still have tight upper abdominal muscles should consider the mini tummy tuck procedure. Typical patients for a mini tummy tuck include first time mothers, or those who regularly exercise and maintain a fit physique, but are struggling with that stubborn lower abdominal pooch.

 

This is the least aggressive kind of tummy tuck procedure, with an incision made right above the pubic area to easily remove fat and excess skin without moving the navel. Because the mini tuck is less involved than a full tummy tuck procedure, the recovery process is typically shorter. If you have any questions about our tummy tuck options, or want to learn more about other treatments for the abdominal area, give us a call at (404) 257-9888.
