Body (Trunk) Procedures


The tummy-tuck flattens and contours the front of the abdomen by removing excessive skin via a lower abdominal incision. This is not a method of weight loss. In fact, the overall esthetic result improves when the amount of abdominal fat is lower. The contour of the flank region is also improved with an abdominoplasty, however liposuction can often help shape this region as well. Occasionally, only a localized region of skin below the belly button is excessive. In these cases, a mini tummy-tuck utilizing more limited incisions can produce the desired contour changes.
