The procedure will also actually flatten the abdominal profile by tightening the underlying muscles.This is a popular procedure in the and has been performed for over 20 years throughout the US. for women who have abdominal bulging, stretch marks or excess fat.

In most cases exercise or diet cannot remove this excess fat and therefore the ‘tummy tuck’ becomes one of the only ways in which it may be removed. The ‘tummy tuck’ is the surgical process by which the separated abdominal muscles can be repaired and the excess skin around the navel can be removed. Once the excess fat is reduced it will result in a slimmer and more youthful midsection.

The procedure can be an intricate one as it requires the removal of excessive skin and fat. Many surgeons see this as more of a sculpture than a surgery and in order to perform this type of operation is important that the surgeon has a perfect understanding of the anatomy and the way in which it must be put back together.

Dr. Shahine has been performing tummy tucks for nearly 10 years with outstanding results. Many of his patients have come to him for ‘abdominoplasty’ and have come with stretched abdominal muscles due to having a number of pregnancies.

Many patients during their consultations complain that they have lost some of the snap that they used to have in their skin. Patients also may have been slightly obese and may have lost weight and now are left with sagging skin.

If a patient is looking for abdominoplasty they must be in good physical condition before undergoing the procedure. If they are concerned about abdominal fat or loose skin that they cannot remove with diet or exercise then the tummy tuck will reduce or possibly eliminate the problem. There will normally be a permanent scar extending to both sides of your hips but will likely be below the bikini line.

This will in turn give rise to a narrower waist.

Dr. Shahine then takes the skin flap of the newly tightened skins and muscles and after removing the excess skin and will reattach them in a natural position. He will then close the incisions and apply a sterile surgical dressing over this.

How long does it take to recover after abdominoplasty?
