Tummy Tuck


Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a highly effective way of creating a tight, flat abdomen. The goal is to produce a flatter and more toned looking stomach and tighten the muscles that might be less effective due to weight loss or age. The procedure involves tightening the abdominal muscles giving you a contoured look.

How We Do Tummy Tucks

BENEFITS of Abdominoplasty

  • Minimize excess skin and fat in the abdominal area
  • Youthful, flat and firm abdomen
  • Produces a lifting of the groin and perineal region
  • Improved cosmetic appearance


A tummy tuck sculpts and tones the abdominal area. The abdominoplasty procedure is customized depending on a patient’s specific goals.


  • Traditional Tummy Tuck: Incision is made from hip to hip and on the navel. This procedure is commonly combined with abdominal liposuction.
  • Mini or partial abdominoplasties require only a single small incision. Partial abdominoplasties result in less dramatic changes to the appearance of the abdomen.  Also, this procedure also offer a shorter recovery time than most tummy tuck procedures.
  • Endoscopic: This tummy tuck technique is employed for patients who suffer from rectus diastasis (a disorder that involves the separation of the abdominal muscles at the midline of the belly). During an endoscopic tummy tuck, a plastic surgeon inserts a tiny camera attached to a slender tube (endoscope) into the site of incision.
  • Extended: This technique involves the removal of love handles on either side of the waist as well as the removal of fat and excess skin from the stomach area.
  • Circumferential: This involves the removal of excess skin from the thigh, buttocks, and hips, as well as the central abdominal area.  Basically, this procedure is for individuals who endured gastric bypass surgery.
