Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck Surgery Reshapes Your Midsection

Tummy Tucks is termed as an Abdominoplasty. A tummy tuck procedure is meant to eliminate excess fat and skin from the abdomen area. When Dr. Schwartz performs a tummy tuck, the aim is to restore the abdominal profile by making it firmer and smoother.

If you want to lose weight, you can't think about having a tummy tuck as a substitute for weight loss. The purpose of having a tummy tuck is to remove excess skin that you can’t eliminate with exercises or losing weight.

Reasons for an Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Getting older, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy may change the body in ways that can be out of our control. Frequently, the changes the body experiences can be difficult to improve even with a vigorous diet and exercise plan. Stretched out skin, excess fat, and weak stomach muscles can create the look of a protruding belly. Having hanging skin and a stomach that sticks out can be unflattering and even uncomfortable for a person. Tummy tuck surgery can be performed to reverse the effects caused by weight changes, aging, and pregnancy. By removing excess fat and skin tissue along with tightening the stomach muscles, an man or woman can have a tight, smoother tummy.p>

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?

Tummy tuck surgery is not a one size fits all procedure. Like many cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, abdominoplasty is highly personalized. Ideally, potential abdominoplasty patients should be physically healthy and at a stable weight. Patients considering a tummy tuck need to have realistic expectations with regard to the results. Ideal tummy tuck patients must be non-smokers. People with a poor self image that feel that their tummies are too large also make good candidates for abdominoplasty.

About the Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Procedure

The tummy tuck procedure requires a horizontal incision to be made in the area between the pubic hairline and navel. Dr. Schwartz will allow the amount of extra skin present to determine the shape and length of the incision. Through the point of incision, Dr. Schwartz will repair and tighten weakened abdominal muscles. In order to perform a full tummy tuck, Dr. Schwartz will make a second incision in the upper abdomen in the area around the navel. While a tummy tuck will produce a flatter, tighter stomach, depending on the specific case, Dr. Schwartz may recommend liposuction accompanies a tummy tuck to remove excess fat.
