A tummy tuck can improve your abdominal area, removing excess pounds of fat and loose skin, along with unsightly stretch marks. Getting this aesthetic procedure can improve your self-image and more.
The lower abdomen is typically recontoured during a tummy tuck, and sometimes, the upper abdomen will also be addressed. To correct this upper area, the plastic surgeon will make a cut around the belly button. Excess fat and skin will be excised, and the muscles will be repaired. After the skin is redraped, the belly button will be moved and sometimes reshaped.
Tummy tucks involving the upper and lower abdomen alike are frequently performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vaishali Doolabh, an accomplished medical professional in the Jacksonville area. Arrange an appointment with our office.
