A tummy tuck provides patients with a taut, flat abdomen by removing excess skin from the abdominal area. A mini-tummy tuck exclusively affects skin below the navel. Many times, a tummy tuck also requires a bellybutton reconstruction. Tummy tucks are often combined with liposuction to optimize results and remove any unwanted adipose tissue deposits.
Tummy tucks also tighten and strengthen abdominal muscles, which is especially helpful for post-partum women who have stretched or torn muscles after pregnancy. Incisions are hidden below the beltline. At Spectrum Plastic Surgery, the Vectra 3D Imaging System is used so patients can visualize their “after” results using real photos. Because individual results may vary*, we invite you to schedule your tummy tuck consultation today and see what’s possible for your unique body.
