What is a Tummy Tuck?

A Tummy Tuck in Crowley, LA, also referred to as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes fat tissue and excess skin from the abdomen area providing a smooth surface against the muscles.

The majority of the public struggles with diet and exercise to create the same effect, but for many reasons a patient may not be able to reach those goals.

A Tummy Tuck is also able to strengthen and restore otherwise weakened or separated muscles, which may have developed from pregnancy, aging, prior surgeries, fluctuations in weight, heredity or aging.

How is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

The first incision is horizontal between the pubic hairline and the belly button. The size of the incision depends on the amount of skin and tissue removed.  This layer is pulled up on top of the abdomen exposing the muscles. This allows the physician to strengthen and repair the weakened muscles.

There may be a need for another incision at the belly button if there is excess skin. Now, the skin can be rolled down from the upper abdomen. A new opening is created for the bellybutton, which is pulled through. The skin is then sutured together with adhesives, tapes and clips.

While the results of abdominoplasty are permanent, large fluctuations in body weight can still cause changes in the appearance of the abdomen.
