Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Atlanta, GA
The midsection is troublesome for both men and women. It seems that no amount of diet and exercise can eliminate the pooches of fat and sagging skin. At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Angelina Postoev, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, and Christopher Ibikunle, MD, FACS, offer tummy tucks (abdominalplasty) for men and women in Lawrenceville, Suwanee, Johns Creek, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What is Abdominalplasty?
The abdominal area is comprised of a series of muscles under a layer of fat. The muscles provide support for your body and give the midsection a toned appearance. The fat is intended to give the skin a smooth appearance.
Aging, pregnancy, and weight problems leave behind extra fat that hides the natural anatomy of the area. Abdominalplasty is recommended for patients who have tried to tone the tummy area, but have stubborn fat that cannot be addressed with diet and exercise.
What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tucks are categorized as full or mini. A full tummy tuck is for men and women who have excess fat above and below the belly button. A less extensive tummy tuck is appropriate for men and women who only have fat below the belly button. The procedure does not help with any laxity in the muscles.
What Are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominalplasty is often the only cosmetic option for remedying fat bulges and loose skin in the midsection. The procedure may also be used to tighten lax muscles. Muscle tightening may help with back pain, since it will increase core support.
What Should I Expect from Abdominoplasty?
The incision for a full and mini tummy tuck are similar. It extends from one hip bone to the other along the pelvic area. Scarring is well-hidden with your underwear. Once the incision is made, the skin and fat are pulled taut. For a full abdominoplasty, the muscles may be tightened and held in place with sutures. Full tummy tucks also require that a new opening for the navel be created. Liposuction may be used to refine the results.
How Long Do the Results Last?
With proper diet and exercise, you may enjoy the results of your tummy tuck for many years. Aging and other factors do come into play, so individual results vary.
