What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is formally called an abdominoplasty. Tummy tucks can repair damaged abdominal muscles and strengthen your core. The procedure also involves taking care of unwanted fat and excess skin in the abdominal area. While improving your diet and exercising more will help you lose weight, the physical appearance of your torso may still fail to meet your expectations. There are other circumstances – including childbirth, illness and hereditary factors – that can make it difficult to achieve the look you want. Consult with Dr. Robbins and his staff to see if a tummy tuck can help.
Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
Because the abdomen is so prominently exposed, even minor imperfections in this area can compromise your profile. A Tummy tuck may help fix the problem in the following ways:
- By eliminating loose skin after weight loss
- By getting rid of stubborn fat deposits
- By reshaping your core profile with favorable contours
- By restoring your confidence and positive body image
How is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
Before you schedule a tummy tuck, Dr. Robbins will carefully review your case and determine what procedures best suit your needs. After giving you all of the details and instructions you need, you’ll be slated for either a full abdominoplasty or a less-invasive partial abdominoplasty, commonly called a mini-tummy tuck. Other procedures (like liposuction) may also be included to achieve the results you’re looking for.
