If you struggle with trying to get rid of your protruding stomach through regular exercise and healthy diet, a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure may be ideal. A tummy tuck, also known as "abdominoplasty," may provide you with a more toned, flatter midsection. If you are in the Boca Raton area, a qualified plastic surgeon can help you reach your desired body contour with this procedure.

What is tummy tuck surgery?

Medically termed “abdominoplasty,” tummy tuck surgery can reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen caused by pregnancy, massive weight loss, or aging. Your surgeon will thoroughly examine the area to be treated in order to determine which technique will be most beneficial. Based on the amount of protrusion and excess, sagging skin, a tradition, mini, extended, or circumferential abdominoplasty will be chosen.

Typically, a long incision in the lower abdomen is made from hipbone to hipbone in order to separate the skin from the underlying muscle. The surgeon will then tighten the abdominal muscle, pull the skin down, make a new opening for the belly button, and trim away excess skin. This produces a more slender and better contoured shape.

A tummy tuck can be performed alone or in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures, such as:

  • Liposuction
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Arm lift

Be sure to view before and after plastic surgery photos to see examples of patient results.
