What is Abdominoplasty?

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is performed to tighten the muscle wall of your abdominal region and remove excess skin, providing a flattened stomach. If pregnancy, obesity, or aging has left you with anything from a slight bulge in your belly to a fatty apron of skin tissue, a tummy tuck can help restore the toned appearance you once had.

Grossman | Capraro Plastic Surgery offers several types of tummy tucks:

Standard/Classic Tummy Tuck: A standard/classic tummy tuck addresses excess skin and tightens your abdominal muscles to reestablish the position that existed before pregnancy or weight gain.

Modified Tummy Tuck: A modified tummy tuck is generally performed when there is not enough loose skin to remove all the skin from the belly button to the pubic region. This is the most extensive tummy tuck procedure.

Mini-Tummy Tuck: A mini tummy tuck is an excellent option to address excess skin and loose abdominal muscles below the belly button. This procedure is the least invasive form of tummy tuck surgery and is a great option for people with a minimal amount of excess skin to be removed and minor muscle looseness in the lower abdominal region.
