What is a Tummy Tuck?
During a tummy tuck procedure excess skin and tissue are removed from your abdomen. The muscle layers can also be tightened, allowing Dr. Nimtz to create a more hourglass shape to a woman’s form, and a more chiseled appearance to a man’s. A tummy tuck may be advised if you have difficulty trimming down your abdominal shape despite diet and exercise or if you’ve noticed changes to your shape after pregnancy. Typically this procedure includes liposuction to the flanks to offer a final trim look. One variation on the tummy tuck is the mini-tummy tuck. When milder amounts of skin laxity or protrusion are present, a smaller incision can be used to target these concerns, particularly if the excess skin and fat are below the naval area.
What are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?
Men and women who have some skin laxity but do not need or want surgery may be interested in treating their abdomen with laser skin tightening, which is an in-office procedure performed two to three times using our Fotona laser. While the results are not as significant as with a tummy tuck, patients have seen improvement in the skin laxity around their abdomen.
Who is a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
Candidates for tummy tuck notice a protruding abdomen or loose, sagging skin of the abdomen. Typical causes of these issues are weight gain and loss, pregnancy, heredity, etc. Patients who desire a tummy tuck should have a stable weight at their desired goal. Women who desire a tummy tuck should not be planning to have more children.
