Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is one of the most requested body contouring procedures at the Reddy Aesthetic Institute. Many clients desire an improved youthful abdominal contour whether to correct changes of aging or after weight loss.
We offer several variations of abdominoplasty which include a full tummy tuck; a mini-abdominoplasty; and lipo-abdominoplasty.
A full tummy tuck involves removal of excess lower skin; tightening of the muscles; and repositioning of the belly button. A mini-abdominoplasty simply involves removal of excess skin in the lower abdomen.
Lipo-abdominoplasty involves a combination of liposuction of the trunk combined with a tummy-tuck and is generally the procedure that I recommend as it results in improved waist definition as well contouring of the upper abdomen. Previously, combining liposuction with abdominoplasty was considered a risky procedure, however, with improved preservation of the blood supply to the abdominal skin, it has proven an extremely safe and effective procedure. In many ways, the lipo-abdominoplasty approach to contouring of the trunk is less invasive than other techniques.
To determine which procedure is best for you, please arrange a consultation with Dr. Reddy.
