Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and skin from the lower abdomen, while restoring weakened or separated abdominal muscles creating a tighter, firmer, and thinner abdominal profile. The number of Tummy Tucks performed annually in both men and women is steadily on the rise. Well over 100,000 Tummy Tuck procedures are performed annually in the United States (statistics provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons).
Common causes of a Protruding, Loose or Sagging Abdomen
- Significant weight loss
- Prior Surgery
Traditional or “Full Tummy Tuck” Plastic Surgery
This is the best tummy tuck procedure for most of our Novi & Troy plastic surgery patients. A full tummy tuck addresses all three layers of the abdomen: skin, fat, and muscle. This procedure exchanges a scar that is usually well concealed behind most bathing suits and underwear for a flatter, firmer and shapelierabdomen. With a full tummy tuck plastic surgery procedure most of the excess skin between the belly button and the pubic region is removed.
Mini Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery
A mini tummy tuck is a smaller version of a full tummy tuck that addresses only mild amounts of excess skin and fat in the lower abdomen (below the belly button). The ideal candidate for the mini tummy tuck procedure is someone with a small amount of excess skin in the lower abdomen.
Who Should Consider Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery
People who undergo tummy tucks often complain that their midsection will not shrink despite changes in diet and exercise. They state that no matter how much they exercise or diet they simply can not lose the weight / fat. For these men and women, the biggest problem is that weight loss has resulted in an excess of loose abdominal skin that will not shrink on its own. If you fall into this category, then tummy tuck plastic surgery may be a great option for you.
The Benefits of the Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery Include:
- Firm abdominal skin
- Visible muscle tone
- Flat abdomen
- Youthful lower abdomen and navel
- Diminished appearance of stretch marks
- Removal of excess, sagging skin
- Flatter, more sculpted abdomen
