Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty
Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) removes excess fat and skin and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.
Even individuals with a normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:
- Prior surgery
- Significant fluctuations in weight
Liposuction (lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy or lipo) is a type of cosmetic surgery which breaks up and “sucks” fat from various parts of the body – most commonly the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves and back.
During liposuction, the fat is removed through a hollow instrument – a cannula – which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula.
Loose skin of the arms and underarms can be removed and tightened by an arm reduction (brachioplasty)
Loose skin of the inner thighs can be removed and tightened by this
