Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?
Men and women who are in good health and are looking to flatten their bellies are prime candidates for this procedure. If you are a woman who has had children, the procedure can also be helpful, removing excess skin and tightening loosened muscles in the area.

We can perform a complete or partial tummy tuck surgery based on your needs. Complete abdominoplasties are more serious, as we need to cut from hipbone to hipbone to properly contour all the skin, tissue and muscles in the area. Partial tucks can be done for people with more fat below the bellybutton that can be addressed without such major incisions.
