Intro to Tummy Tucks (Abdominoplasty)
Do you want a flat, sexy stomach?
Have years of weight fluctuations or pregnancy left you with a pooch that you can’t get rid of? Are hundreds of crunches and various crash diets not giving you the results you’re looking for? Unfortunately, diet and exercise cannot get rid of excess skin and stretch marks, and crunches cannot bring the stretched abdominal muscles back together in the midline.
Dr. Reid and Dr. Gordon are experts in body contouring and because no two patients are the same, they offer different techniques tailored to your specific concerns. They were the first plastic surgeons in Austin to offer SAFELipo® body contouring using PAL, or Power Assisted Liposuction. They then went on to develop their signature Tummy Tuck 360™ procedure that combines a tummy tuck with SAFELipo® and gets patients looking great from the front and from the back.
We’ve listed the most common concerns in the box below, so identify yours and read on to find out which option may be best. Think about the quality of your skin, the amount and location of excess fat and the extent to which your abdominal muscles are stretched and this will guide you in determining which abdominal contouring procedure is right for you.
