At Park Avenue Plastic Surgery, we understand that it can be frustrating for healthy men and women to be plagued with a less-than-satisfactory abdominal area. Sometimes even rigorous exercise and healthy diets are not enough to fully flatten the stomach, especially after pregnancy or significant weight loss.
An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck procedure can help to remove excess abdominal skin and fat to create a beautifully smooth, toned midsection. There are different types of tummy tucks that can be performed:
- Traditional full tummy tuck
- Mini tummy tuck
- Circumferential tummy tuck
- Modified tummy tuck
Each patient will be suited for a specific tummy tuck technique, depending on:
- The amount of fat to be removed
- The amount of skin to be removed
- The location of the excess skin and fat
- How much stomach muscle tightening is required
A flat abdomen is not only aesthetically pleasing; it can also protect you from potential health risks associated with excess belly fat. However, tummy tucks are not meant to be a substitution for healthy lifestyles, and this is not a weight loss solution.
