Many adults struggle to tone the abdominal area using traditional diet and exercises alone. This doesn’t mean you can’t have a sculpted, firm, and contoured midsection. With procedures such as the tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, you can remove excess fat and skin in this targeted area for remarkable results!
What is a tummy tuck?
Dr. Jeffrey Hartog of The Bougainvillea Clinique is a doctor that describes the tummy tuck as a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal area to achieve a flatter, firmer midsection. In some cases, he may also tighten abdominal muscles as well for optimum results. This surgery is done by creating an incision across the lower abdomen in an area where the scarring is often covered by underwear to reduce the appearance of having cosmetic work completed when wearing a bathing suit or crop tops.
Who is a candidate for a tummy tuck?
We encourage patients to call our office and schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Hartog to find out if they are appropriate candidates for the tummy tuck procedure. We do encourage patients to:
- Be in good health overall
- Stabilize their weight
- Be within their ideal weight range
- Have realistic expectations regarding the results
- Not be pregnant
- Not fluctuate in weight over the last few years
- Require removal of both fat and skin
During an evaluation, our team will evaluate patients and determine what their goals are to decide if the tummy tuck is right for their needs. Additionally, for patients who only need fat removal and not skin removal, alternative treatments may be recommended such as liposuction.
