The Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) procedure primarily involves the removal of fat and skin from the abdominal region. Underlying muscles can also be tightened during the abdominoplasty. While many techniques are now utilized to perform this procedure, a traditional tummy tuck requires an incision from hipbone to hipbone. During the procedure, the skin is separated from the abdominal wall. Next, the vertical abdominal muscles are tightened, and excess fat and skin are removed. The navel is also repositioned during the procedure. During a consultation with Dr. Howard, he will be able to tell you if you are a good candidate for abdominoplasty. People who are planning to have a baby or lose a substantial amount of weight should postpone abdominoplasty surgery. If you are in relatively good health, you may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty although your candidacy can be further explored during a consultation.
