Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

The presence of a relatively flat stomach is an important component of a physically fit appearance.  Therefore, the development of a bulging abdominal contour or excess lax, hanging abdominal tissue can represent a considerable source of concern for many individuals (both men and women), especially where there’s no improvement despite a healthy diet and regular abdominal exercise.  In these situations, an Abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck) may be the perfect solution.

What Is An Abdominoplasty?

By removing variable amounts of excess abdominal skin and fat as well as tightening bulging or weakened abdominal muscle, abdominoplasty is a powerful surgical technique which can restore a flatter, tighter abdominal contour.

Candidates For A Tummy Tuck

Excellent candidates for this procedure include individuals who have developed relatively lax, redundant abdominal skin as a result of significant weight loss, weakened abdominal muscles as a result of previous pregnancy, or excess abdominal protrusion which is disproportionate to the remainder of their body.  For those with an unsatisfactory abdominal contour which is restricted to the lower abdomen (ie. below the navel), a ‘mini-abdominoplasty’ procedure may provide optimal enhancement.

Where Will My Abdominoplasty Be Performed?

Usually performed under general anesthesia, a tummy tuck is safely performed in a  State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgical Facility (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’) on an outpatient basis requiring approximately 2 to 4 hours of operative time.
