After childbirth, years of child-rearing, or simply as a part of the aging process, patients often feel concerned about the shape of their abdomen. Sometimes there is fat that refuses to budge or sagging skin that won’t stay in place. At Cornerstone Plastic Surgery, Dr. Coville performs abdominoplasty surgery to restore his patient’s youthful abdomen contour.
What is an Abdominoplasty?
Often added as part of a mommy makeover, abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, removes excess skin around the waist and readjusts underlying muscles to restore the youthful appearance of the abdomen. Liposuction may be added to a tummy tuck to get rid of excess fat during your tummy tuck.
The scarring is hidden behind the bikini line but can be considerably noticeable in the first few years. The length and exact position of the incision depends on the patient’s body and goals.
