Tummy Tuck

Service Description

Sought out by patients who have gone through pregnancy or major weight loss, abdominoplasty or the “tummy tuck” is among the most common procedures performed by a Plastic Surgeon. Used to remove excess skin in the upper and lower abdomen, the tummy tuck can greatly improve the overall shape and contour of the body.

Abdominoplasty patients typically complain of flabby, loose skin in their midsections, or the “pooch”: weakness of the lower abdomen. Sadly, especially in the case of post pregnancy or extreme weight loss, these conditions can’t be corrected with diet and exercise alone. The tummy tuck surgery is designed to correct the weakness and extra skin to improve the shape and size of the midsection, yielding dramatic results when performed by skillful cosmetic surgeons.


Typically performed as an outpatient procedure, the surgery begins once the anesthesia has taken effect. An incision is then made right above the pelvic area stretching from hip to hip. A second incision is then made to free the navel from the skin of the abdomen.

Once the skin is released from the abdominal wall, the abdominal muscles are tightened via sutures in order to correct diastasis recti, the separation of the abdominal muscles which can occur during pregnancy. Diastasis recti is common among pregnant women and occurs due to the enormous pressure on the muscles of the abdomen during pregnancy.

 The excess skin and subcutaneous fat are then cut away, the remaining skin pulled down and stapled. A new incision is made and the navel is pulled through and reattached.
