An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and sagging skin around the lower abdomen. Generally, the loose abdominal muscles under the skin are also tightened to create a significantly smoother and firmer profile.
Tummy tucks improve the shape and tone of the tummy region by removing excess fat and skin, and restoring weakened or separated muscles. It is a very common plastic surgery procedure and has a very high level of patient satisfaction. Abdominoplasties are highly individualized, considering the unique situation of every patient who chooses to undergo the procedure.
An abdominoplasty is not and should not be seen as a substitute for weight loss or exercise routine. This is a point Dr. Graham Sellars wants to reinforce to all patients. The procedure also cannot correct stretch marks and other similar problems.
While the procedure is ideal, it is not for everyone. The best candidates for abdominoplasty are, first and foremost, patients who are in good health. It is ideal for men and women who were once obese, but still have loose skin or excess deposits of fat around their lower abdomen. It is also recommended for women who have had several pregnancies and would like to tighten muscles and reduce skin around their abdominal area.
