Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) Plastic Surgeon, Scott McDonald, MD, is a Board Certified Plasitc Surgeon. The Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgeon offers complimentary consultations at his state of the art surgical facility.
Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery is one of the more common plastic surgery procedures performed by Dr. Scott McDonald. During your initial Tummy Tuck consultation, the Plastic Surgeon will work with you to determine realistic goals and discuss your surgical options. Together, you will decide which specific Tummy Tuck procedure is best for you. Many of the Plastic Surgeon’s Tummy Tuck patients decide to include other procedures such as liposuction with their tummy tuck so their hips can be shaped to match their new smaller tummy.
The best candidates for an Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery) are men or women in good health and relatively good shape, but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that does not respond to diet or exercise. Those who are considering losing a significant amount of weight, or women still planning future pregnancies, may want to consider waiting before undergoing the tummy tuck procedure.
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a procedure performed by the Plastic Surgeon to:
* Remove excess abdominal skin.
* Contour or remove excess abdominal fat
* Tighten and support the stretched or weakened abdominal muscles, especially after pregnancies.
Two types of Tummy Tuck procedures are available to you depending on your specific needs: the full tummy tuck or the “mini” tummy tuck for those who only need their lower belly reduced. The incision through which the Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgeon will remove excess fat and skin will be made along your lower waistline and is one that can often be concealed below a bathing suit. The abdominal muscles will also be tightened and set into place.
