Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, is a great surgical option for patients who want to remove excess and outstretched abdominal skin after pregnancy or weight loss. At the time of your consultation, Dr. Li will analyze your abdomen in detail and discuss whether Tummy Tuck Surgery is a good option for you.
In the standard procedure, liposuction is first performed in the torso, including the upper abdomen and flanks. Excess skin and fat are then removed from the torso, and healthy skin is brought downwards to create the new abdomen. At the same time, muscles which may been stretched apart are brought back together. The belly button is re-used. The result is a smooth and tight abdomen with a final scar which is low and hidden.
In some situations, there may also be excess skin involving the back and/or bilateral thighs, which may require removal for the best results. These surgeries are more complicated and involve a more extended recovery.
