Abdominoplasty (commonly known as a Tummy Tuck) is a surgical option that offers dramatic improvements for patients seeking a smoother, tighter, and firmer stomach with a natural-looking, contoured appearance. A Full Tummy Tuck involves a two-layer approach that repairs both the muscles and the skin. Dr. Emer and his surgical team remove the excess skin and fat in the torso area and tighten the abdominal muscle—which, for female patients, may or may not be damaged as a result of pregnancy (a condition referred to as diastasis recti, or abdominal separation). As with every procedure, Dr. Emer’s team performs every Tummy Tuck with precision and acute attention to detail, always mindful of the end result.
For patients with a small amount of loose skin, a quicker and less invasive Mini Tummy Tuck can tighten the lower abdomen, provide improved shape, and remove loose skin with less dissection than a full abdominoplasty. Dr. Emer often pairs hi-definition liposuction and body contouring—which vastly improves size, shape and definition—with a Mini Tuck to tighten the abdominal area.
