With tummy tuck surgery, I can reshape the belly button, contour the hips, waist, and back while removing excess skin and tightening the entire abdomen. This procedure can reveal muscle separation and other changes after weight fluctuations or pregnancy. It can also be combined with breast surgery to compete a mommy makeover all in one surgery. When the skin is stretched out and hanging low, or it is ripped with stretch marks, a tummy tuck may be the best option. Tummy tucks can also be combined with liposuction as long as care is taken to respect the blood supply of the tissues to avoid vascular injury and non-healing. A tummy tuck with or without liposuction is the second most powerful way to contour the mid-section (liposuction is the most powerful).
