An abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a commonly performed plastic surgery procedure that gives excellent results that are often difficult, if not impossible, to achieve with diet and exercise alone.
By eliminating excess sagging skin and fat, the result is a slimmer, flatter and nicely contoured tummy. The surgery is popular in women who have difficulty losing excess abdominal tissue after childbirth and in both men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight. Sometimes women undergo a tummy tuck at the same time as a breast lift or breast reduction (a combination known as a “mommy makeover”).
When considering a tummy tuck, an in-depth discussion with your plastic surgeon is essential in order to understand the procedure in detail, what to expect your abdomen to look like after surgery, the scars, and the recovery time. The goal is to achieve an excellent cosmetic result and Dr. Loizides will help you make a well-informed and safe decision.
