What Is A Tummy Tuck?
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical solution by which sagging skin and excess fat in the abdomen is removed to create a tighter-looking, flatter midsection.
Additionally, abdominal muscles are repaired – if needed – to restore your womanly silhouette.
However, a tummy tuck is more than just removing extra skin and fat.
An abdominoplasty requires a thorough understanding of the human muscular-skeletal anatomy, surgical skills and aesthetic ability to accomplish the most natural-looking, beautiful results.
Because each surgery is tailored to your personal body, the specific techniques utilized to performed your tummy tuck will be determined after a physical examination by Dr. Lorenc during your consultation.
