Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Both men and woman have a hard time losing the pooch in their tummy. If you have exercised extensively and that little- too big tummy will just not budge, you might be trying to reach an impossible goal. When exercise does not bring the expected results, the reason might be just too much tissue that can’t t be exercised away. Women commonly experience this following childbirth. Many women try very hard to exercise and eat right. However, it is impossible to get rid of extra skin this way. Abdominoplasty surgery gives you a head start by removing the excess skin. Others have lost a lot of weight, but the skin around their abdomen simply will not tighten, even with exercise.
Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a “tummy tuck” can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. Through this surgical procedure, Dr. Orloff removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, while tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall.
A “Mini-Tummy Tuck”, will work for some people who do not have too much excess fat or extra skin. This procedure focuses on the area bellow the belly button.
An Endoscopic Tuck, A Dr. Orloff Specialty, is where a very small incision is made to tighten up the abdominal muscles. This can be a wonderful option for those patients who have developed a pooch in the tummy but don’t have significant loose skin or fat.
Liposuction in adjacent areas may be recommended in conjunction with Abdominoplasty for maximum results.
Dr. Orloff will discuss with you the various options available, and will make a recommendation based on your current condition and your goals and desires for the outcome of the procedure. Each treatment plan is customized to meet the specific needs of each patient.
