WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK? CORSET TUMMY TUCK?
A traditional tummy tuck, medically referred to as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that targets the abdomen, providing shaping and contouring benefits. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen, tightening the underlying muscles of the abdominal wall (diastasis), and liposuction of the hips/pubic area for final contouring. This is a great procedure for patients who have experienced changes to their body from pregnancy and weight loss.
Dr. Pisarski also performs a corset abdominoplasty. This is an enhancement on a traditional abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). It is an abdominal and waistline contouring procedure that targets and reshapes not only the upper and lower abdomen, but also the posterior waistline, resulting in a 360 degree improvement. It is an ideal procedure with patients with multiple rolls and excess skin resulting from weight loss and allows Dr. Pisarski to address specific areas of skin redundancy.

In some cases, liposuction of the hips and pubic area can also be performed to provide complimenting results.
