Tummy Tuck Premium

Achieved With a Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery improves stomach contours by removing excess skin, eliminating stubborn fat, and tightening the abdominal muscles. Patients who undergo tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Patronella can experience the following:


Tighter Skin Tone

Pregnancy and weight loss commonly leave the abdomen with stretched-out skin. Diet and exercise cannot improve skin laxity, but a tummy tuck can remove excess skin to restore smoother stomach contours. Patients who have undergone tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Patronella attest that the procedure produces a smooth and toned abdomen with tighter skin.

Pre-Pregnancy Stomach

Some of the major changes that occur in the body during pregnancy include excessive stretching of the abdominal skin and the separating of the abdominal wall. After pregnancy, weakened stomach muscles and lax skin do not necessarily return to their strong and tight pre-pregnancy state. Tummy tuck surgery restores a pre-pregnancy stomach by tightening the stomach muscles and removing excess skin to create a flatter, more youthful abdomen.

Reduced Abdominal Fat

Strict dieting and exercise may be unable to eliminate pockets of localized abdominal fat caused by pregnancy, heredity, or weight fluctuations. A tummy tuck can remove stubborn abdominal fat and create a flatter tummy. Dr. Patronella performs liposculpture during the procedure to strategically remove fat from the abdomen and reveal a more attractive and natural stomach contour.




Firmer and Tighter Abdominal Muscles

Pregnancy and weight gain can weaken the abdominal muscles so that they do not hold in the stomach as they should. With careful attention to detail and an anatomically distinct internal suturing technique, Dr. Patronella tightens the stomach muscles and highlights the natural abdominal contours to reveal a more attractive abdomen. Firmer and tighter core muscles after tummy tuck surgery may also lead to other benefits such as improved posture and core strength.

A Toned, Natural-Looking Tummy

A naturally toned and youthful abdomen is not uniformly flat but has subtle contours that make it look elegantly beautiful. Dr. Patronella incorporates surgical techniques and artistry to recreate this natural appearance while removing excess skin and fat. Consequently, the results reveal an abdomen that does not look surgically altered but appears naturally authentic in its firm and toned shape.
