A complete tummy tuck, or complete abdominoplasty, may be recommended as an alternative to liposuction. Performed exclusively on the stomach area, a tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall to create a smoother, flatter appearance. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. View Tummy Tuck Before and After Photos.
Am I a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
The best candidates for tummy tuck surgery are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise. The surgery is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients, which frequently occurs with slight obesity, can also be improved. Very often with a complete tummy tuck, Dallas tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Rai will also perform ultrasonic liposuction to improve the definition of your waistline.
Your Dallas Tummy Tuck Surgery Procedure
Dallas board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai generally performs an endoscopic tummy tuck with most of his patients. Endoscopic tummy tuck surgery allows Dr. Rai to tighten abdominal muscles and restore abdominal tone through limited incisions. Usual incisions are placed on the pubic hairline and around or through the belly button. Dr. Rai places an endoscope through these incisions and examines the muscles under the skin. Using specially made instruments, Dr. Rai tightens the abdominal muscles to restore abdominal tone.
Endoscopic abdominoplasty has advantages over traditional abdominoplasty surgery in that there is less bruising and scarring and faster healing.
