Tummy Tuck

A flat and well-toned tummy is a goal that many women strive for through exercise, diet and weight control. Despite one’s best efforts, the goal of a flat tummy may not be achieved. There may be loose skin and skin rolls that do not improve, fat deposits on the front and love handles (sides or flanks) that just will not go away despite all your efforts at exercise and diet. In these situations, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty may be recommended to achieve your goals. A tummy tuck recontours the abdomen by removing loose skin, stretch marks, fat bulges and repairs the abdominal muscles. This restores the abdomen to a more normal flat contour that is better proportioned to your body type and weight.

Scarless Breast Augmentation - Tummy Tuck

Dr. Adrian Lo has performed hundreds of tummy tucks in combination with scarless breast implant surgery giving women the body that they desire. You may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you have any of the following scenarios:

  • You have loose skin or skin rolls from pregnancy. Your stomach/abdomen is not as flat as you would like it or you look like you are still pregnant when you are not!
  • You have loose skin or skin rolls from weight fluctuations or weight loss from dieting or gastric bypass procedures.
  • You have an abdomen that protrudes and is out of proportion to the rest of your body. A protruding abdomen is usually due to areas of fat deposits on the front of the abdomen and love handles (sides) with loose skin. Often, this type of abdomen may be hereditary and does not improve with exercise or dieting.
  • You have had prior surgery that has resulted in excess skin or accumulation of fat. For example, sometimes loose skin may hang over a Caesarean section scar (C-section); this skin can be removed through a tummy tuck procedure.
  • Your abdomen may bulge out and be rounded or convex. This is called rectus muscle separation or diastasis and occurs frequently with pregnancy, weight loss or aging. A tummy tuck procedure will repair the muscles, restore the muscle tone and remove the loose skin to give you a flat and well-toned abdomen.

Dr. Adrian Lo performs many tummy tucks and scarless breast implant surgery together at the same time. The total surgery time is only 3 hours and this is still outpatient surgery – you may go home the same day!
