Body Contouring Surgery
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of adults work hard for through exercise and weight control, but sometimes these methods alone cannot help us achieve these goals. Dr. Alfonso Oliva can help you have the toned and youthful midsection you have dreamed of having. The tummy tuck procedure (also known as abdominoplasty) removes excess fat and skin in the abdomen, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles, creating a smoother and firmer profile.
Some of the most common causes of a protruding or sagging abdomen area include:
- Aging process
- Significant fluctuations in weight
- Prior surgery
Tummy tuck surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
Is a Tummy Tuck Right for You?
A tummy tuck may a good option for you if:
- You are at a stable weight
- You have realistic expectations
- You are a non-smoker
Although the results of an abdominoplasty procedure are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be significantly affected by fluctuations in your weight. Individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies may be advised by Dr. Oliva to postpone their abdominoplasty surgery.
