In Bradenton and Sarasota, abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. Dr. Lacerna performs this procedure that can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.
If you are considering a tummy tuck, Dr. Lacerna will give you a basic understanding of the procedure, detailing how and when it can help, how it is performed and what results you can expect.
The Best Candidates for Tummy Tucks
The best candidates for abdominoplasty are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise. The surgery is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients, which frequently occurs with slight obesity, can also be improved.
