Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Elevare MD offers tummy tuck to help you achieve the flat stomach you always desired. A tummy tuck can help improve the loss of skin tone and sagging of skin due to the weakening of the underlying stomach muscles. This procedure is popular for women who are seeking a firm abdominal area that creates an overall more youthful appearance.
Women may lose abdominal muscle tone and seek a tummy tuck for a number of reasons.
Pregnancy. Carrying a child can lead to stretch marks and the weakening of stomach muscles that keep an abdomen firm.
Aging. Time can take a toll on both muscle and skin, leading to sagging and loss of tone in the stomach.
Significant Weight Loss. While it’s good for overall health, weight loss can create excess skin and reveal abdominal muscles that have been worn and stretched supporting extra weight.
A tummy tuck involves liposuction of the abdomen, a tightening of muscles, removing excess skin and making a beautiful, natural-looking belly button. Elevare MD’s skilled surgeon uses an advanced technique to give the very best results with low incisions, a curved silhouette, and elevation of the mons.
Elevare MD recommends a tummy tuck to improve the look and feel of the abdomen, which cannot be addressed through diet and exercise alone. We offer both mini tummy tucks and full tummy tucks.
- Mini Tummy Tuck: for women without much excess skin above the belly button.
- Full Tummy Tuck: for women with a lot of excess skin above the belly button that needs to be addressed.
The Elevare MD Experience
Dr. Michael DeWolfe is Elevare MD’s Board Certified, fellowship-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeon, who is highly experienced in both mini and full tummy tucks. During your initial consultation, you will meet with Dr. DeWolfe for an examination and to discuss the results you are hoping to achieve.
Based on your unique anatomy and goals, Dr. DeWolfe will determine the best technique to tighten muscle, skin and remove excess fat. Tiny incisions will be made around the belly button and lower abdomen. Through these incisions, muscles are repaired and fat is removed. Excess skin is then trimmed. The incisions will be virtually invisible once fully healed.
The Elevare MD team makes the entire surgical experience as smooth as possible. Most patients go home hours after surgery. You will receive instructions on how to care for your stomach and any prescriptions needed to manage any discomfort you may experience. For long lasting results, it’s important for patients to avoid significant weight fluctuation.
Of course, we will always be here to answer any questions or concerns.
