Abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”) results in a flat and well-toned abdomen and stronger abdominal muscles. The most common candidates for abdominoplasty are women or men or women who has loose abdominal skin. Patients that have lost a lot of weight or had previous abdominal surgery, especially with scars below the navel, are also excellent candidates for abdominoplasty.

A tummy tuck is the surgical removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen, along with the re-positioning of abdomen muscles into a tighter formation. The results of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) include a proportioned body shape, improved tone, decreased fatty deposits and an overall stunning body transformation.
Judging from his office, he is a very busy plastic surgeon. We clicked right away. He talked me out of doing a few things I brought up, but overall, we agreed on a plan to help me look younger. He has operated on my face and body and it would be hard for me to choose which I am happier with. Also, he has the best nurses ever! Highly recommend! 🙂 ~ Vitals
What is a Full Abdominaplasty, Full Tummy Tuck? A full abdominplasty, full tummy tuck is performed to remove excess fat from the lower and upper abdomen and hips and is a more extensive plastic surgery than a mini tummy tuck. In comparison to a mini tummy tuck, a full tummy tuck focuses on the entire abdominal wall and is recommended for candidates with problem areas along the entire abdomen. Benefits of a full tummy tuck include a much flatter, smoother abdomen, and reduced appearance of stretch marks.
- Flat abdomen
