Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty is one of the most commonly requested plastic surgery procedures. Many moms, as well as people who have loose belly skin from weight loss, cannot simply tighten their muscles and skin through exercise. This is where a tummy tuck can offer dramatic improvement in the center of the body.

Dr. Umerah takes the time to do a few things to make your tummy tuck results look great, and your scars undetectable, including the following:

  • Low scar placement so that a tiny bikini or undergarment can still hide it.
  • Natural contouring so the abdomen is not flat and fake-looking.
  • Create a small “innie” belly button that is in the right location.
  • Liposuction the flanks (love handles) and anywhere else needed to enhance the waist and hip curves.
  • Tighten the stomach muscles by creating an inner corset.

Abdominoplasty is very popular among moms. The rapid weight changes, the peaks and valleys of hormones, the stress of delivery and the effects of breast-feeding can all wreak havoc on a woman’s body.

The most common complaints are weight gain, abdominal stretch marks and droopy, deflated breasts. Unfortunately, once these changes have occurred, it’s difficult for women to get their pre-baby bodies back through weight loss and exercise alone.  Many women therefore look to plastic surgery to improve their bodies and get back their “pre-baby” bodies.

As the abdomen expands to accommodate the baby during pregnancy, stretch marks and excess skin may result along with weakening of the abdominal muscles. Once this happens, the abdomen can develop a “pooch” and appear “flabbier.”  Our abdominoplasty procedure (tummy tuck), can restore a flat and toned tummy by removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles.
