Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, can improve the contours and firmness of your abdominal area. It is often combined with liposuction to create an overall balanced look. The procedure will tighten up the underlying abdominal muscles and remove sagging skin to provide a more firm tummy.
Here at Gaines Plastic Surgery, abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck is a procedure that we’ll typically perform for a patient who either has a little too much subcutaneous fat or too much/excess skin, either one, to be handled by other techniques. This is an operation that’s primarily for patients who are at or very near to their ideal body weight. They’re not fluctuating a great deal in their weight, and may have either some excess skin or excess fat on the anterior abdomen. In that case, this operation is perfect for those patients. For our post-pregnancy patients one of the advantages of abdominoplasty is ability to take the muscles of the abdomen, return them back to their original position which for these particular patients can allow them a much better abdominal contour and give improvements that you can’t get with exercise, because of the nature of the problem. Here at Gaines Plastic Surgery we have financing options available through CareCredit. It’ll allow patients to finance the procedures that we do through this clinic for up to six months with no interest.
