Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Dallas

After pregnancy or significant weight loss, the abdominal skin may remain loose, particularly in the lower abdomen. There is no non-surgical treatment which will significantly tighten loose skin.

Using an incision low in the abdomen and in the body crease, excess skin can be removed. In limited lower abdominal looseness, a modified (“mini”) abdominoplasty can be performed. This procedure uses only the lower incision. If loose skin is present above the navel, a full advancement is needed. In such cases, an additional incision around the navel is required.

Muscle separation beneath the skin is commonly also present. Repositioning of the muscles is usually performed at the same time as skin correction.

The procedure can be performed in our surgicenter. A one or two overnight stay is recommended. Normal activities can be resumed in 10 to 14 days.
