Many patients who have experienced dramatic weight loss or pregnancy struggle with loose skin on their stomachs and may seek out the services of a cosmetic surgeon due to the lack of viable at-home options to treat the condition. Some people who have an otherwise normal body-weight-to-proportion physique can still develop a protruding, loose, or saggy abdomen. The most common reasons for this include aging, heredity, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations, with the tummy tuck being among the most effective means for Naples, FL patients to address the excess belly skin.
Hi, today I wanted to talk to you about the abdominoplasty, or what’s commonly known as the tummy tuck.
During the tummy tuck procedure, excess skin on the lower part of the abdomen is removed and the muscles underneath are tightened to create a nice waist, and to give you a contour that you desire. A tummy tuck has many different variations that we can tailor to each individual patient–can be used in conjunction with liposuction and that will allow you to have a flatter stomach and an improved waistline. If you feel like a tummy tuck is a procedure you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to call for a consultation.
Also known as an “abdominoplasty,” Dr. Paul M. Gardner, Dr. Leopoldo M. Baccaro, Dr. Mark Walsh, and Dr. Andrew Bonett offer the tummy tuck to their patients in the Naples, FL area. Along with reducing excess belly skin, the procedure can also restore weakened or separated muscles with the effect of creating abdominals that are both smoother and firmer. While dieting and exercise can tone abdominal muscles, only surgical intervention can remove sagging skin on the stomach and tighten flabby muscles. However, a tummy tuck is no substitute for a recurring exercise regimen.
A tummy tuck is a sophisticated plastic surgery procedure that helps patients obtain flatter stomachs by removing loose skin and tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. Once healed, patients typically achieve the looks they desire and feel more confident in their appearance.
Dr. Gardner, Dr. Baccaro, Dr. Walsh, and Dr. Bonett always initiate cosmetic surgery procedures with a one-on-one consultation to determine the patient’s aesthetic needs and to tailor the procedure specifically to the patient’s unique physique and desired outcome. Our doctors also thoroughly discusses procedure steps, answer all questions, and strive to ease patient apprehension by imparting as much detail about the surgery as possible.
