Your tummy tuck will be completely customized based on your unique needs. We will begin by administering general anesthesia to ensure that you are completely asleep and unable to experience any pain during surgery. In addition to keeping you comfortable, this form of anesthesia also allows us to ensure your safety.
Once you’re sedated, we will make the smallest incision possible to gain access to the underlying fat and muscles. For example, if you’re only removing a small amount of fat from your lower abdomen, we can generally make a tiny incision. However, if you need to remove a more substantial amount of fat from the entire abdomen and address loose underlying muscles, we may need to make a more extensive incision from hip-to-hip and around the belly button.
Once the incision has been created, we will tighten your sagging abdominal muscles to restore a taut look. We will then begin reducing unwanted fat, taking special care to evenly remove the volume to ensure a natural-looking and seamless outcome. And finally, we will trim away your excess skin and improve the appearance of any stretch marks. Very much an art form, our leading plastic surgeons will continue to sculpt and contour the area until we’ve created a firm, flat and youthful abdomen.
