Tummy Tuck

Don’t Live with Love Handles and Unsightly Bulges; Get the Toned, Sexy Abs You Want and Deserve!

A toned, flat, sexy abdomen and waist plays an important role in our modern concept of beauty for both men and women. The constant barrage of photos of models and work-out gurus in magazines, on TV, and especially across social media make it seem like getting your abs as flat and contoured as your favorite celeb is downright simple. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Eating right and maintaining a good exercise routine does not always produce the results we desire when it comes to the abdomen. Despite our best efforts, the struggle to get a fit-looking tummy can be a frustrating process for a number of reasons, including:

  • Pregnancy
  • Weight fluctuation
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal changes

More commonly known as a “tummy tuck”, abdominoplasty surgery is designed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area while also tightening the underlying musculature in order to create a slim, toned, sexy abdomen.  Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon Dr. Stephen M. Becker approaches each and every abdominoplasty with a total commitment to patient safety and patient satisfaction by utilizing the most advanced surgical techniques, coupled with a personalized approach in which each surgery is custom-tailored to meet the unique anatomical and aesthetic goals of each patient.  Selecting a highly skilled and experienced surgeon such as Dr. Becker will ensure that your abdominoplasty results in the well-toned, firm, sexy abdomen that you have been dreaming about!


When To Consider A Tummy Tuck Procedure

Despite the rise in non-surgical approaches that promise to deliver “amazing fat reduction”, a surgical abdominoplasty remains the gold standard when it comes to abdominal contouring.  While Living a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise is important and costly non-surgical techniques can possibly eliminate some minor bulges, a surgical tummy tuck is the best way to correct sagging, stretched-out skin and weak, damaged abdominal musculature producing truly transformative alterations to the abdominal area.  

A tummy tuck procedure approaches the following problematic issues simultaneously:

  • Excess or loose skin
  • Weakened or stretched out abdominal muscles
  • Protruding lower abdomen
  • Excess fat

The degree of excess skin and fat, along with the condition of the underlying musculature, will dictate which procedure Dr. Blake recommends for you.  The different abdominal approaches are:  Mini Abdominoplasty, Full Abdominoplasty, and Extended Abdominoplasty.  Each procedure can be customized to address your specific anatomy and concerns and may be combined with liposuction to maximize results.

What To Expect From Your Tummy Tuck Procedure

The tummy tuck surgery is done under general anesthesia.  Patients will generally take about 2-3weeks off work and other regular activities to recover.  Drains may be used in order to minimize post-operative swelling and fluid accumulation and are usually in place for about 7-14days.  The incision can be made below the panty or bikini line, making it easy to camouflage.  Although it may take a few months for all of the post-operative swelling to disappear and the new body form to completely settle, your slimmer, more toned results will be evident right away!
