Tighter, slimmer, toned tummy: Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) By Dr. Sutton Graham on November 17, 2009

Dr. Sutton Graham is frequently asked to improve the size, look, tone, and contour of women's abdominal area. We offer a detailed in-person consultation that shows you what you need to know. We will send you preliminary information, discuss your health and medical history, evaluate your areas of concern, show you numbers of photographs (before & after), discuss the procedure options / benefits and risks / recovery / return to work & activities. And you'll leave the consultation with an individualized quote and detailed booklet of information. This process allows you to make a well informed decision.

Basically, tummy tuck deals with three layers; skin, fat and muscle. There are a variety of ways to accomplish your improvements, and we'll discuss them with you. (1) Excess skin is removed and the incision is hidden low on the tummy. Stretch marks are removed. Swimwear options increase. (2) Excess fat is removed and discarded. Liposuction may be combined with direct removal of fat, depending on the area of your torso. The tummy looks smaller and trimmer. The waistline improves. Clothes fit better. (3) If lax muscle wall tone is a problem, we cinch up the slack to permanently tighten the entire abdominal wall, or only an involved portion. This reduces the pregnancy-related lower tummy roundness, improves definition, and can effect posture. This achieves results exercise alone cannot.
