   Abdominoplasty—Tummy Tuck
Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a "tummy tuck," is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. But bear in mind, it does produce a permanent scar, which, depending on the extent of the original problem and the surgery required to correct it, can extend from hip to hip.

If you're considering abdominoplasty, this will give you a basic understanding of the procedure-when it can help, how it's performed, and what results you can expect. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Please ask your surgeon about anything you don't understand.

Many women seek out abdominoplasty after having lost weight, after having had children or been pregnant and even due to abdominal laxity due to aging. It is a very common, albeit serious, surgery and one should be aware of all that is involved in this surgery before undergoing such a procedure. Perhaps abdominal liposuction is all you really need. There are several surgical techniques as it is not a one size fits all type of operation.

We are dedicated to helping you obtain a more taut and slimmer abdomen and will support you through the entire process. By providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision and the surgeons with whom to carry them out - we make it easier for you to regain a flatter tummy.

This popular procedure has been thoroughly researched with countless hours of dedication to give you just what you need to know and presented in an easy-to-read, friendly environment. Every risk is thoroughly explained to you so you can rest, assured, that you are fully aware and in the know before you commit.

Elective surgery doesn't have to be a frightening and mysterious experience. We make it possible for you to fully understand what it is that you need to know, do and expect from your abdominoplasty procedure - without confusing you in the process. Within these pages you will find out just why so many people, worldwide, happily undergo this popular procedure every year.

An abdominoplasty normally takes from 2 to 4 hours to perform. If you are having additional procedures, this time may be increased. However, "Mini Tummy Tucks" take less time than "full" techniques. You will more than likely be marked with a surgical marker (resembling a Magic Marker type pen) before you are sedated, while standing up. This will help the surgeon see how the skin and fat hangs naturally and will determine the incision areas and the reference points.
   Mini tummy tuck.
  If, for example, your fat deposits are limited to the area below the navel, you may require a less complex procedure called a partial abdominoplasty, also known as a mini-tummy tuck, which is usually performed on an outpatient basis. This procedure usually leaves the belly button in its current place and removes the fat below the navel, tightening the muscles but only from the navel to the pubis. Liposuction can be performed for additional small cost at the same time to create a nice contour. Although this is up to the individual surgeon. This frequently is performed with liposuction to obtain the best results.
   Full tummy tuck.
  In the full tummy tuck procedure, we create a new belly button and tighten the muscles from the lower chest area to the pubis. The scar is usually from hip to hip. Liposuction can be performed for additional small cost at the same time to create a nice contour. Although this is up to the individual surgeon. This frequently is performed with liposuction to obtain the best results.
   Extended tummy tuck.
  An extended tummy tuck is usually for obese patients that have a great deal of excess fat and have overhanging skin that extends to the back. In order to leave a nice contour, our scar needs to be extended beyond the hip area and extend more towards the back. Again in this case we tighten the muscle and create a new belly button. Liposuction can be performed for additional small cost at the same time to create a nice contour. Although this is up to the individual surgeon. This frequently is performed with liposuction to obtain the best results.
   Belly Button Cosmetic Removal

Celebrity new Trends

A navel may leave an unattractive scar if the umbilical cord was cut badly by the doctor at birth. Or it may be removed for personal aesthetic reasons. People may also not want to deal with navel lint, the smell, and having to clean it.

The popularity of cosmetic umbilicoplasty, otherwise known as belly button surgery has skyrocketed in the past few years. Belly button surgery can be performed at the same time as a tummy tuck or other cosmetic procedure, and is sometimes done in conjunction with hernia repair.

Belly Button Sculpture is included in the price of Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty when both are done at the same time.

In our Surgical Center compare to number of other Surgical Center we prefer  General Anesthesia , in which case you'll sleep through the entire operation and do not feel any pain.
