If, for any reason, you have sagging or stretch-marked skin around your abdomen you may want to consider a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, as an option for removing the excess skin that is getting in the way of you having the body you want. Many people choose to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction in order to better define the abdominal muscles or a breast augmentation to provide a more complete full body makeover. Dr. Michael Ciaravino has the ability to help you get the body you have always dreamed of.
Tummy Tuck Procedure
The tummy tuck procedure begins by administering a general anesthetic. Dr. Ciaravino then begins by making a small incision below the bikini line and one more around the navel. At this point, if liposuction is needed, excess fat is removed from around the belly and sutures are placed along the stomach muscles to achieve a more defined look for the stomach. The excess skin is then removed and the skin and navel are reattached at the incision points.
