Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Abdominoplasty helps to flatten and shape the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles. The best candidates includes those who have abdominal wall weakness, such as from pregnancy, and those who have a burden of fat and excess skin of the lower tummy. The procedure can also be useful for women with stretched skin and muscles after pregnancy but without a burden of fat.
The procedure takes approximately 3-4 hours and is performed with general anesthesia. Initial recovery, such as return to work usually takes 10-14 days but more full recovery time can take up to several months. Although a longer recovery than other aesthetic procedures, an abdominoplasty is a very powerful procedure. With a balanced diet and regular exercise, results are long lasting. Abdominoplasty generally leave a permanent scar stretching between the hips, such as an extended C-section incision, but over time, it usually fades and is low enough to often be hidden in certain clothes and bathing suits.

The most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the U.S., liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat that has not responded to diet and exercise from areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, buttock crease, thighs, knees, chin, and neck. Usually performed under general anesthesia although occasionally under local anesthesia with IV sedation, the procedure can last anywhere from 1-2 hours to several hours, depending on the amount of fat and the number of areas being treated.
There are several different methods surgeons use when performing liposuction, including ultrasound-assisted lipectomy (UAL) and suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL). In both types, fluid is injected into the area to be treated. Then a tiny incision is made in as inconspicuous a place as possible, and a cannula (small tube) breaks up the fat layer and suctions it out.
