Check out this awesome tummy tuck result for our patient in her 60’s! She had been bothered for a long time with her excess fat and extra abdominal skin. We decided on liposuction 360 of the torso with muscle plication and tummy tuck. She is over three months from surgery in the photos.

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the abdomen. It’s often chosen by individuals who have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area that hasn’t responded well to diet or exercise.

Here’s what it accomplishes:

  1. Removal of Excess Skin: A tummy tuck removes loose, sagging skin, particularly in the lower abdomen. This excess skin can result from significant weight loss, pregnancy, or aging.
  2. Tightening of Abdominal Muscles: Pregnancy or significant weight changes can cause the abdominal muscles to weaken or separate, resulting in a protruding belly. A tummy tuck will tighten these muscles, creating a firmer and flatter abdominal wall.
  3. Improved Contour: By removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles, a tummy tuck can create a smoother, more contoured abdominal profile.
  4. Scar Placement: The incision for a tummy tuck is typically made low on the abdomen, usually within the bikini line. The scar can be easily hidden by clothing or swimwear, but its visibility can vary depending on the individual’s healing process and the surgical technique used.
  5. Enhanced Confidence: For many people, a tummy tuck can lead to increased self-confidence and satisfaction with their appearance.
