Tummy tucks are growing in popularity among Dr. Semlacher’s cosmetic surgery patients. If you have unwanted, sagging skin around your abdomen and mid-section, a tummy tuck may be just the procedure you need to reach your cosmetic goals.
No matter how often many people diet or exercise; excess skin simply won’t go away without help. For these areas of the body, a tummy tuck may be the best solution. Tummy tucks are ideal for otherwise healthy patients who just need a little help in the abdominal area. Patients who have recently lost a great deal of weight and have excess, sagging skin around their mid-section may uniquely benefit from a tummy tuck – this includes new mothers.
A tummy tuck will require Dr. Semlacher to make a horizontal incision across your pubic hairline. This will give him access to your abdominal area while also allowing your incision to heal more discreetly. Your abdominal muscles will be tightened during the procedure to strengthen the abdominal wall and give you a stronger abdominal profile. Excess skin will been trimmed off and the remaining skin will be tightened. Your belly button will even be repositioned if necessary. A tummy tuck can also be paired with liposuction to eliminate excess, unwanted fat deposits.
