Tummy Tuck Delaware

Tummy Tuck is a procedure to improve the aesthetic appearance of the mid-section. Many women seek out a Tummy Tuck procedure after pregnancy due to excess, sagging skin and stretched our or loosened abdominal muscles. Men and women alike seek out Tummy Tuck due to excess skin from a significant weight loss or due to the natural aging process. It is important to have realistic expectations for what a Tummy Tuck procedure can and cannot due. The Tummy Tuck procedure is not a weight loss solution or a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise regime. The Tummy Tuck removes excess skin and can tighten the abdominal muscles. In many cases the Tummy Tuck procedure is performed in combination with Liposuction to also remove excess, pockets of stubborn fat.

The incision in a Tummy Tuck procedure is made horizontally from hipbone to hipbone. It is important to understand that this incision will leave a permanent scar, though the placement of the scar makes it easily hidden by underwear and swim wear. If you are interested in learning more about Tummy Tucks and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Balakhanitoday.
