Dr. Goldberg uses several abdominoplasty methods to contour the abdominal area, depending on body type and the patient’s goals.
For patients who have strong abdominal muscles and require only a moderate amount of tissue reduction, liposuction may be used to flatten and shape the abdominal area.
Mini Tummy Tuck with Liposuction
For patients who are lean but have damaged skin, loose skin, or scars from a cesarean section, a mini tummy tuck with liposuction is often the best method of improving the appearance.
A full abdominoplasty is best for patients with excessive loose skin and a modest amount of excess fat. It is also the best method for women with stretched skin and muscles from pregnancy, and those who have scars from cesarean sections. The full abdominoplasty allows Dr. Goldberg to tighten the underlying muscles, raise the belly button, and remove excess skin in a single procedure.
