How Is A Tummy Tuck Performed?

Tummy tuck surgery is performed with the patient under anesthesia. There are several methods to consider when this surgery is performed, which is applied to the individual's current condition. The incision shape and size are selected based on the quantity of excess skin. Some individuals with severe sagging and loose skin might benefit best from an extended tummy tuck. This abdominoplasty technique makes the incision from hip bone to hip bone, just on top of the pubic section. Some patients who are concerned with minimal skin wrinkling may be better suited for a smaller incision. These individuals still benefit from an abdominoplasty but will simply receive a less expansive scar. Regardless of the nature of the surgery, all abdominoplasty procedures at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg involve the removal of sagging skin and fat.
