Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdomen wall, giving you the firm stomach you’ve always wanted.
The procedure will either be a complete abdominoplasty, or a mini tummy tuck. If you are required to have the full tummy tuck procedure, the incision will be made just above the pubic hairline, with the length of the incision depending on the amount of excess skin you have. Dr. Blaine will then construct the skin and muscles accordingly, so that everything remains flat and firm. Another incision will also be made to your belly button in order to free your navel area from the surrounding tissue.
Massive weight loss is not the only reason you may find yourself considering abdominoplasty. You may also have acquired stretch marks from pregnancy, aging, or even from a previous surgery. If you are interested in a tummy tuck, or want to learn more about the procedure, feel free to call us at 631-237-3392.
