Women suffer many body changes as a result of pregnancy and weight fluctuations. Perhaps the most significant is the abdomen. Even if you do dozens of stomach crunches a day, you may find it impossible to lose the excess fat and skin around your midsection. Abdominoplasty, or “Tummy Tuck,” (a misnomer because there is no tucking of tissue or skin) is the answer. An incision is first made from one hip to the other coursing just above the pubis. The skin and fat are separated from the abdominal muscles. If needed, the abdominal muscles can be tightened for an hour glass slimming effect in the mid abdomen. Finally, the flap of skin is pulled downward, the excess skin is removed, and the incision is closed with sutures that are under the skin (you won't even see them). Once healing is complete, you can expect to enjoy a beautifully sculpted and flat stomach.
Obstetricians and Gynecologists often refer patients to Dr. Severinac for abdominoplasty. This procedure can be done during a hysterectomy or other gynecological or urological procedures. Most mommy makeovers typically includes a tummy tuck.
