Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
You eat right and exercise, but for a flatter stomach, you may need extra help: take time to consider a tummy tuck. This procedure involves making a series of incisions to remove abdominal skin and fat and re-tighten stomach muscles.
We are able to customze the tummy tuck procedure for our Albany and Glens Falls patients based on their needs. If you have a fairly small amount of belly fat and would like a more contoured abdomen, mini tummy tuck may be a good choice. For loose abdominal muscles and droopy or stretched skin, Dr. Garcia performs total abdominoplasty.
Dr. Garcia is a board certified plastic surgeon and performs his cosmetic surgery procedures at Saratoga Hospital and Saratoga Surgery Center. He also offers plastic surgery at Glens Falls Hospital and performs minor cosmetic procedures at his office on Park Street in Glens Falls. Request a consultation today to start enjoying a flatter, tighter stomach. Dr. Garcia strives to make your cosmetic surgery experience as convenient and rewarding as possible.
What's It All About?
Loosened muscles, saggy skin, stretch marks, and belly flab can prompt men and women to consider tummy tuck surgery.
- Abdominoplasty changes the appearance of loose, flabby skin that has lost shape and elasticity and won't respond to diet or exercise.
- After pregnancy, many women are bothered by stretch marks or C-section scars – tummy tuck tightens while removing stretched skin and old scars.
- Many people are self conscious about loose, flabby skin around their stomach, and often find that a more balanced figure boosts self confidence and gives them more clothing choices.
- Patients often choose abdominoplasty to regain their youthful appearance, when they had good muscle tone and a slimmer figure.
Your Tummy Tuck Procedure
Dr. Garcia always focuses on comfort throughout your surgical experience. After making the incisions, which frequently extend from hip to hip but can be shorter for mini tummy tuck patients, Dr. Garcia may remove excess fat and skin, tighten abdominal muscles, and reposition your navel depending on your surgical needs. After your procedure, you'll be given instructions on caring for your dressings, and over the next few weeks you should gradually begin to feel like yourself again.
At your consultation, Dr. Garcia can answer your questions about tummy tuck or any of his other plastic surgery procedures, including breast augmentation, Saratoga Springs facelift, liposuction, and reconstructive hand surgery.
