A full range of body contouring surgeries and treatments is available.
Once stretched by pregnancy or weight gain, the abdomen often fails to return to its original shape. Stretched beyond the capacity to return to normal, these tissues will also fail to respond to exercise or diet programs. In these cases, abdominoplasty can provide a long-lasting solution.
Abdominoplasty (commonly called a tummy tuck) is a frequently performed procedure used to tighten overly stretched abdominal muscles and skin for a smoother, flatter appearance.
One of the most common of all cosmetic procedures, liposuction is a technique for recontouring the body by permanently removing fat deposits. The tendency to accumulate fat may be inherited, and this fat is often especially resistant to diet and exercise.
Many patients become discouraged at having lost unwanted pounds without seeing a change in shape. The overall proportions of the body may be unbalanced, or they may simply have retained areas of fatty tissue. In these cases, liposuction can successfully trim excess fat.
