If you have stubborn fat and loose abdominal skin, a tummy tuck may be the ideal procedure for you. Most tummy tuck patients are women who have stretched skin and muscles due to pregnancy and men and women who have had significant weight loss. Dr. Copeland is highly skilled in abdominoplasty and emphasizes minimal scarring and optimal results. She can remove excess fat and skin to create a flatter, slimmer waistline.
A mini-tummy tuck is a great option for those who want to slim the stomach and waist, but don't require extensive repair of the abominal muscles. It's especially effective for those who suffer from moderate but persistent potbelly or "bikini bulge." The main difference between the two procedures is that the mini-tummy tuck doesn't require moving or reconstructing the belly button.
