Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a surgical procedure Â to remove Â excess wrinkled skin and fatty tissue from the abdomen for both women and men. Abdominal muscles will be tightened for a smoother and flatter stomach. If necessary, liposuction surgery is combined with this procedure to achieve the desired results.
A toned, flat abdomen is an immediately recognized sign of youth and fitness. A toned abdomen together with a well-proportioned breast profile makes clothing fit better and the body expresses general desirability.
However, even exercise and diet cannot always produce the abdomen profile desired. Excess fatty deposits, loose skin and loose and separated muscle tissue may be beyond the reach of diet and exercise. If endless crunches and strict diets are not producing the tummy you desire, contact Dr. Apesos for a consultation.
Among the common causes of loose or protruding abdomen include aging, pregnancy, sudden weight loss and even heredity. A tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck can correct for these factors.
Mini Tummy Tuck
This limited procedure can tighten the skin only and involves removing less skin. The technique is reserved only for those people with minimal deformity. The belly button will be slightly repositioned to a lower position thus avoiding the periumbilical scar.
Persons should always consult with Dr. Apesos first to determine which procedure is best suited to meet personal requirements and desired. Dr. Apesos has the training and experience to know which procedure or combination of procedures will be most effective given your body type and desired result.
