Body Contouring

The appearance of the abdominal section of the body can be refined and contoured using various surgical procedures.

Surgery of the Abdomen
(Abdominoplasty or "Tummy Tuck")

Generally referred to as a "tummy tuck", abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen.  The procedure also helps to flatten the abdomen by tightening the surrounding muscles.  

Women, with stretched abdominal areas due to previous pregnancies, can benefit considerably from abdominoplasty.  Older individuals whose skin has lost some of its elasticity and are slightly obese can experience an improvement in their abdominal area.

If you are in generally good physical shape but are concerned about abdominal fat deposits or loose skin that does not respond to diet and exercise, the procedure can potentially reduce or even eliminate a protruding abdomen.  Abdominoplasty can produce a permanent scar which can possibly extend to both sides of your hips, although the scar will likely be located below the bikini or bathing suit line.

(Lipoplasy / Suction Lipectomy)

Now among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, liposuction (also known as "lipoplasty" or "suction lipectomy") sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat from areas around the neck, chin, upper arms, waist, flank, back, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs and knees.  Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), tumescent technique are among the various techniques used to provide precise results.  


Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, but the procedure can eliminate areas of fat that are unresponsive to typical weight-loss methods.
