Everyone wants a flat, toned stomach, but sometimes lifestyle choices aren’t enough. If you’ve dieted and exercised your way to within a few pounds of your ideal weight but still struggle with loose skin on your abdomen, you may be the perfect candidate for abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck.
Abdominoplasty involves removing excess skin and tissue from the abdomen to create a tighter, more youthful appearance. While the general procedure is similar from one patient to another, you can customize your treatment with several tummy tuck options.
- Combining your tummy tuck with liposuction can remove excess fat for a more sculpted appearance.
- If stretch marks have plagued you after weight gain or pregnancy, your procedure may be customized to address those in some cases.
- Depending on your specific aesthetic goals, the incision may be located in such a way as to be virtually invisible.
While a tummy tuck can address some unwanted tissue, it’s not the same as liposuction. For patients who also wish to remove more than a small amount of fat, we often recommend that liposuction be performed in conjunction with the abdominoplasty procedure.
Ultimately, each tummy tuck procedure is completely customized for you. Please contact the Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & today at (248) 723-9370 to schedule your Detroit abdominoplasty consultation with Dr. Rouchdi Rifai.
