Tummy Tuck Surgery
A full abdominoplasty, unlike our mini Tummy Tuck, is a significant procedure in which most of the skin and fat between the belly button and pubic area is removed. The upper abdomen is then tightened and the belly button repositioned, for an overall smooth midsection. As part of the process, the thick, protective tissue beneath the skin, called the fascia, is also tightened.
The full tummy tuck can be done with or without liposuction. The result is a flat, firm abdomen with no stretch marks. Looking at the results, patients have commented that years of damage seem to have been erased from their body. As a board-certified plastic surgeon with additional experience in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Lakshman provides each client with a customized consultation, safe and effective surgery, and one-on-one post-operative follow-up.
Mini Tummy Tuck
Our Mini Tummy Tuck is an alternative, less invasive procedure than full abdominoplasty. This procedure involves removing loose skin of the lower abdomen only. It does not reposition the skin around the belly button or tighten any loose upper-abdominal skin. Dr. Lakshman is a board-certified plastic surgeon and highly skilled in providing excellent results with this procedure.
