Abdominoplasty, also called a "tummy tuck" is a common surgical procedure. A full tummy tuck provides a flat, toned stomach through tightening of the abdominal muscles and removal of loose skin and stubborn fat. Results are immediate and dramatic. A mini tummy tuck is ideal for patients whose problem area is just below the belly button and who do not have stretch marks or sagging skin. A mini tummy tuck is less invasive than a full tummy tuck. A full tummy tuck involves an incision around the belly button and from hip bone to hip bone. A mini tummy tuck leaves the belly button intact and requires a much smaller incision.
For optimal results, Dr. Pensler often combines a tummy tuck with liposuction. Other procedures can also be performed at the same time.
