Several techniques for tummy tucks are offered to patients seeking abdominoplasty doctors for this procedure, depending on the patient’s unique anatomy. Aging, heredity, pregnancy, weight fluctuations and other factors can wreak havoc on our tummies, causing sagging and protrusion. An abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, helps achieve a flatter, smoother and firmer abdominal profile.
During this procedure, Keelee MacPhee, M.D. removes fat and skin from the abdomen discussed and agreed upon by the patient in pre-op consults to ensure the healthiest and safest recovery. After removal of these identified problem areas on the abdomen, Dr. MacPhee restores weakened muscles in the abdominal wall. In some cases, stretch marks can be removed if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised.
When abdominoplasty doctors perform a full abdominoplasty, it involves tightening the muscles and skin, as well as performing liposuction to smooth the pubic and flank areas. A mini tummy tuck may be the best approach for patients with only lower abdominal excess skin, often as result of a C-section.
