Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

An abdominoplasty is performed to remove excess skin and fat from the stomach area and to tighten loose abdominal muscles; most often the result of pregnancy or significant weight loss. It is sometimes coupled with liposuction and takes between three and four hours to complete. General anesthesia is used, and frequently the patient will stay one night in the hospital for recovery.

If diet and exercise are just not able to target that stubborn belly fat like you had hoped it can be disheartening. But don’t lose hope. Our amazing cosmetic surgeon Paul Fischer, MD PC makes it possible to get the body you want even when traditional and more conservative methods fail. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can actually remove loose, excess fat and skin from your stomach and finally give you the shapelier and more contoured body you’ve been wanting. A tummy tuck can even tighten the muscles around the abdominal wall and reduce and eliminate stretch marks.

If you want to feel more confident sporting that bathing suit or wearing your favorite clothes and think that getting a flatter stomach could restore your self-esteem then a tummy tuck might just be the perfect option for you. It’s important to note that this treatment isn’t right for everyone. When you come in for your consultation we will discuss your goals for treatment. Those with a healthy, positive outlook who have realistic treatment goals will find that a tummy tuck or other cosmetic surgery can give them the beautiful results they’ve always wanted.

It’s also important to know that you will have a visible scar near the bikini area from a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck may also not be the right option for you if you are planning to have more children in the future, as being pregnant could reverse your results. The same goes for those who end up gaining the weight back after their surgery.
