Sagging, loose skin that accumulates around your abdomen may be preventing you from having the attractive body contours that you want. You may have excess tissue as a result of pregnancy, weight loss, or the natural aging process. Dr. Yospur can perform a tummy tuck to eliminate excess hanging abdominal tissue for patients who desire firmer, more toned abdominal contours.
If you have tried doing hundreds of crunches and following different diets, and nothing seems to be working, a tummy tuck may be the answer. We specialize in body contouring and understand that no two patients are the same. This is why, during our consultation, we want to hear the exact results that you are looking to get. We will work with you to ensure you are happy with your results.
The ideal candidate for a tummy tuck is in good health and has realistic expectations for their results. Tummy tuck surgery is not a weight-loss procedure. Instead, it is for people that have flabby, sagging skin around their abdomen, a lack of shape due to pregnancy or weight loss, unsightly stretch marks, and low confidence due to their appearance.
Dr. Yospur will start the procedure by creating a pencil-thin incision in the lower area of the abdomen, directly above the pubic bone, that will follow the natural curve of your pelvis. He believes that this area is ideal for an incision because it will typically be covered by underwear or a bathing suit, which makes the incision easy to hide. Once the incision has been made, he will carefully trim away the excess skin, thinning out the tissue, and targeting the deeper fat of the upper skin flap, so that it matches the slimmer aesthetic of the rest of your abdomen. At the same time, he removes the tissue from your mid to lower abdomen.
The muscles are stitched back together by pulling the midline edges and adding another layer of sutures to provide extra support. This will tighten the abdomen muscles to flatten and tone your stomach. Dr. Yospur utilizes the latest and best techniques throughout the entire procedure.
There are also two other variations of a tummy tuck. You can get a mini tummy tuck, which is reserved for patients who have good skin elasticity, no diastasis, and only isolated fat on their lower abdomen. We can remove excess fat and skin from the lower abdomen easily.
We also offer an endoscopically assisted tummy tuck.This is for patients who are thin and have only a little excess skin, along with muscle laxity. Dr. Yospur will be able to remove the little bit of skin that the patient wants to be rid of.
The results of a tummy tuck will be long lasting as long as you follow the postoperative care. If you do gain weight, this can alter your results so we always suggest trying to stay at a stable weight following surgery. Dr. Yospur always works to achieve only minimal scarring so that you will be confident with your stomach for the rest of your life.
