Tummy Tuck Denver Colorado
Abdominoplasty, or tummy-tuck, is a serious surgery that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens abdominal wall muscles to flatten the tummy. A lot of Denver Face and Body tummy tuck recipients are mothers that have lost the firmness of their abdomen after their pregnancies. Other patients include older people who have lost the elasticity in their skin.
If you have loose, sagging skin around your mid-drift or abdomen, an abdomen that sticks out and is not proportionate to the rest of your body, you are a good candidate for tummy-tuck surgery.
Men and women who are in relatively good shape are the best candidates for tummy tuck surgery in Denver. If you are bothered because there are certain areas that won't slim down from exercise and dieting, tummy tuck surgery in Colorado is a good option for you.
How do you perform tummy tucks at Denver Face and Body?
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, removes skin that extends outward toward the hip bones. The amount of skin removed depends on the extent needed to flatten the abdomen. The incision for this is made around the pubic area (see picture).
What other tummy tuck options are there at Denver Face and Body?
We offer what's called a mini-abdominoplasty, a surgery that focuses primarily on the fat area below the naval. There is only one short incision made horizontally with no naval incision. Therefore, mini-abdominoplasty does not remove skin, but removes the fat underneath the skin within that area. The removal of fat is done with VASER® LipoSelection .
If your muscle tone and skin elasticity is good, this is a great procedure to have if you have future plans to become pregnant.
