Achieve A Toned &
Contoured Midsection

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to achieve a toned and contoured midsection. It targets excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, tightens weakened muscles, and creates a firmer abdominal profile. Ideal for individuals who struggle with sagging skin and stubborn fat pockets despite their efforts through diet and exercise, a tummy tuck offers a transformative solution. With the expertise of Dr. Z, you can achieve the sculpted abdominal appearance you desire.

Tummy Tuck Corrects:

  • Excess skin in the abdominal area
  • Stubborn fat pockets around the midsection
  • Weakened or separated abdominal muscles
  • Stretch marks caused by pregnancy or weight fluctuations
  • Post-pregnancy or post-weight loss loose skin
  • The appearance of a protruding or sagging abdomen

Your Tummy Tuck Options

Mini Tummy Tuck

For individuals with localized concerns in the lower abdomen, a mini tummy tuck offers a focused solution. This procedure targets excess skin and fat below the belly button, providing a more contoured appearance. With smaller incisions and a shorter recovery period than a full tummy tuck, the mini tummy tuck is an excellent choice for those seeking targeted improvements in their lower abdominal area.

Full Tummy Tuck

The full tummy tuck is a comprehensive procedure to address excess skin and fat throughout the entire abdominal region. It involves an incision from hip to hip, allowing for the removal of significant amounts of skin and tightening of the underlying muscles. This option is ideal for individuals with more extensive concerns, such as significant skin laxity or muscle separation. Dr. Z can evaluate if you need a full tummy tuck.

Extended Tummy Tuck

The extended tummy tuck is an advanced option that targets the abdomen, flanks, and lower back areas. This procedure is ideal for individuals who desire comprehensive body contouring and wish to address excess skin and fat in multiple areas. By extending the incision around the hips, Dr. Z can sculpt a more harmonious silhouette and achieve stunning results. Discover the transformative possibilities of an extended tummy tuck.

Carefully Concealed Incisions

During a tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Z takes great care to make incisions in discreet locations. Incisions are typically placed low on the abdomen, within the natural crease of the bikini line, allowing for easy concealment by underwear or swimwear. Additionally, incisions are carefully closed with sutures or surgical adhesive to minimize scarring. Dr. Z’s meticulous approach ensures the most aesthetically pleasing and inconspicuous results possible.
