Georgia Institute For Plastic Surgery – Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
No matter how many hours you spend at the gym, or how clean your diet is, the abdominal area is notoriously difficult to tighten and tone.
The abdomen is also a hard area to slim if you have:
- Had multiple pregnancies
- Noticed signs of aging
- Experienced weight fluctuations that left loose skin
- A genetic disposition for a larger midsection or loose abdominal skin
Tummy tuck, otherwise known as abdominoplasty, reduces the appearance of a protruding abdomen by removing excess fat and loose skin. The remaining skin is brought down and tightened across the midsection. If the muscles of the abdominal wall have separated, they are tightened. Liposuction techniques are incorporated into tummy tuck surgery to reduce localized fat deposits.
Some scarring from tummy tuck is inevitable, but our surgical team at The Georgia Institute For Plastic Surgery make special efforts to conceal the scars in inconspicuous areas (typically hidden beneath the bikini line).
