Tummy Tuck Scottsdale
Top Tummy Tuck Surgeon in Arizona
If you’re not happy with the way your abdomen looks despite your efforts with diet and exercise, you may be wondering if there are any steps you can take to change it for the better. Thanks to modern medicine, it’s never been easier to effectively alter the appearance of your midsection. Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can help to eliminate excess skin and allow one to enjoy a better-looking belly. If you are interested in cosmetic surgery in the Scottsdale and North Phoenix area, AV Cosmetic Surgery can provide you great surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
What is a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that aims to make the abdomen smoother, firmer, and tighter by taking out unwanted fat and excess skin. The procedure can also be used to repair muscles that have been stretched or damaged by pregnancy, aging, and after losing a large amount of weight. If you have recently been pregnant, were formerly overweight, or have sagging skin due to age, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Tummy tucks may also be performed in addition to other procedures such as liposuction in order to provide patients with the cosmetic changes they are interested in achieving. Often times, this is called a “Mommy Makeover,” which is a customized surgical plan that addresses different areas of your body that you wish to change, and it can also be a great way to save money by having multiple procedures done at the same time.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
There are two different procedures available to people who are interested in abdominoplasty. When you meet with your cosmetic surgeon, he will advise you regarding which type of tummy tuck is most suitable for your individual case.
- Partial abdominoplasty: If your belly fat is mostly situated below the navel, your surgeon may recommend a partial tummy tuck. This type of surgery doesn’t require moving the navel, and it is also a relatively short procedure.
- Full abdominoplasty: This more extensive procedure requires an incision from hip to hip. The surgeon reshapes and contours the muscles and tissues under the skin to provide a smoother, tighter abdominal appearance.
- Extended abdominoplasty: is an expanded tummy tuck procedure, where the surgeon also removes excess skin from one’s sides and improves muscle laxity at the love handles (flanks) and hip region.
It’s important to remember that following a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery, you will need some time to fully recover. Follow all of your surgeon’s instructions for aftercare and recovery, and contact AV Cosmetic Surgery Center anytime if you have any questions or concerns.
