Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is designed to firm and smooth the abdomen. This cosmetic procedure removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and may also tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. Abdominoplasty is best suited for women and men who are in relatively good shape, but have loose abdominal skin and/or a significant amount of abdominal fat that won’t respond to dieting or exercise.
You may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty/a tummy tuck if you have one or more of the following conditions:
- Excess or loose abdominal skin, often the result of massive weight loss
- An abdomen that protrudes and is out of proportion to the rest of the body
- Abdominal muscles that have been weakened by pregnancy or aging
- Excess fat that is concentrated beneath the abdominal skin
Those exploring abdominoplasty that have plans to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight should discuss these plans with Dr. Mazaheri.
If you are considering abdominoplasty and have recently had weight loss surgery, you may be a candidate for a body lift procedure that includes body sculpting for massive weight loss.
