Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck is indicated for patients with loose skin, excess fat, and lax muscles. These conditions most commonly present after childbirth.

Abdominoplasties remove excess skin and fat as well as tighten lax muscles creating a more youthful and firm abdomen. Although a relatively long scar results, the scar can be placed low allowing for styles such as hip-hugger pants/skirts and bikinis. If only slight to moderate laxity is present, a mini Abdominoplasty, which limits the length of the scar, may be indicated.

1 1/2 to 3 hours

Anesthesia
Local with sedation or General Anesthesia

Risks
Infection, unsightly scarring, fluid collections, navel irregularities, and the need for revision can occur.
