Tummy Tuck Surgical Techniques

A tummy tuck provides dramatic results because of the nature of the tummy tuck surgical procedure. In particular, a full tummy tuck addresses all layers that make up the abdominal wall and in this manner corrects all the issues that can lead to a sub-optimal aesthetic appearance of the abdomen. When performing a tummy tuck, Dr. Backstein will always tighten the abdominal muscles as a key component of the surgery. By doing this, the "ponch" or "pot-belly" look of the lower abdomen is instantly corrected. It is the muscle layer that is the foundation to the abdominal wall and a tummy tuck done without addressing the muscle layer will fail to fully flatten the tummy. Once Dr. Backstein has completed the muscle work, a large piece of abdominal skin with its associated fatty tissue is removed from the abdominal wall and discarded. At this point, Dr. Backstein reasseses your abdomen and will perform liposuction to sculpt the love-handles and upper abdominal area to fine tune your result. Dr. Backstein includes liposuction of the abdominal area in the pricing of your tummy tuck surgery.
