Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

An abdominoplasty is a frequently performed procedure which addresses loose abdominal skin, excess fatty tissue, or a laxity of the rectus abdominus muscle. These conditions which may result fom aging, excess weight gain or weight loss, pregnancy, or abdominal surgery cause the tummy to be more protuberant than desired.

A tummy tuck addresses these issues, by removing excess skin or fat, and tightening the rectus abdominal muscle resulting in a flatter abdomen. An abdominoplasty procedure is often performed in conjunction with liposuction to remove fat from the flank (love handles).

An incision is placed below the bikini (panty) line to hide the incision even if you're wearing a swim suit. Patients who have undergone a tummy tuck procedure find a great deal of satisfaction in regaining the body shape, and better fitting clothes that they lost over the years.

It is amazing to see the renewed sense of self-confidence and enthusiasm for life that many patients develop after this procedure. You can too! Call Dr. Orten's office today for a consultation - 972-378-0060.
