Abdominoplasty


This section features before and after photos of abdominoplasty. Sometimes, in order to achieve the optimal result, abdominoplasty is combined with liposuction.

If a woman - or man - exhibits excess abdominal skin, pronounced stretching or “aproning” (a fold in the lower abdominal area), it’s impossible to fix these problems through diet and exercise. This is because outstretched skin and subcutaneous tissue are incapable of “snapping back,” while physical exercise to strengthen the abs can improve the shape and tone of the muscles but not the skin. The aforementioned problems are usually observed among women who’ve undergone pregnancy and childbirth, and among men who’ve experienced rapid weight loss or undergone surgery on the abdominal wall. In these cases, our plastic surgeons perform what’s known as a tummy-tuck - abdominoplasty.
