Also known as a “tummy tuck”, abdominoplasty is the most effective cosmetic surgery for achieving a flat, taut stomach.
IS A TUMMY TUCK RIGHT FOR YOU?
Every person has a unique medical history, and their own personal goals for their figure. The best way to determine whether you’re a good candidate for abdominoplasty is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Neaman or Dr. Christiansen. They will examine you, understand your medical history and aesthetic goals. From there, they will determine whether a tummy tuck is appropriate for you.
In general, ideal candidates should meet the following criteria:
Are at or close to a healthy weight they feel they can maintain
Have loose skin and stubborn fat pockets in the abdominal area
Do not smoke
Are generally in good health
Do not plan to have more children
WHAT CONCERNS CAN A TUMMY TUCK ADDRESS?
A tummy tuck can improve a range of concerns in the abdominal area, many of which will not resolve without a surgical procedure:
Saggy skin in the belly area
Loss of abdominal muscle tone
Fat deposits around the belly that don’t budge with diet and exercise
Stretched-out belly skin after childbirth or weight loss
