| emmett plastic surgeryDr. Jennifer Emmett and the team at Emmett Plastic Surgery are available to assist patients in and around the community who are interested in improving their appearance. Whether patients want to improve their facial contours or sculpt their body into a better contour, our team can assist. One way to address body contours is with procedures such as the tummy tuck.

What is a tummy tuck?

There are many surgical procedures available to help improve all areas of the face and body. One of the most common problem areas reported by both men and women is the midsection. Abdominal fat can be stubborn and difficult to treat. With the use of body contouring procedures such as the tummy tuck, patients can achieve a more desirable shape to the body.

The tummy tuck is a special procedure that addresses both fat and excess skin. The treatment begins with liposuction, during which a tube-like instrument is inserted into the tummy area to suction out unwanted fat cells. The device is attached to a machine that is like a vacuum that works by removing fat cells from the stomach. Once the fat cells are removed, excess skin is often present. Dr. Jennifer Emmett uses special tools to cut away the excess skin and then resuture the area to achieve a flatter stomach. Both the liposuction and skin removal are done during the same procedure.

Why choose a tummy tuck?

Many men and women decide to move forward with a tummy tuck when they are within their ideal weight range and want to address stubborn fat and skin in the stomach area. Most patients who approach our team for surgery have already changed their diet and exercise without achieving the desired results.
