Tummy Tuck Lake Jackson, TX
What Is A Lipo Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)?
Although a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) makes the waist look thinner, when it is combined with liposuction, you can achieve maximum results. Lipo Abdominoplasty is an advanced type of tummy tuck that is combined with power sculpt liposuction techniques. This 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 to remove excess fat around the abdomen, flanks, and lower back to give the body a natural contour. By tightening the underlying muscles, Dr. Pisarski creates an “internal corset” effect that produces a balanced waistline and abdominal shape.
Lipoabdominoplasty may be appropriate if you have trouble flattening your abdomen following changes in your midsection after pregnancy or despite exercise and weight loss. This is a great procedure for patients who have experienced changes to their body from pregnancy and weight loss.
