Tummy tuck surgery
What is abdominoplasty or tummy tuck?
Women who have gone through pregnancy or have had significant fluctuations in weight may be left with sagging skin and abdominal muscles weakness, with a heavy impact upon feelings of self-confidence about their body image. The loose skin and separated muscles often do not respond to diet and exercise. Our tummy tuck surgery, performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Yoel Anton Rojas, can help you achieve a flatter, trimmer, smoother tummy by removing excess skin and tightening the muscle structure beneath.
Dr. Rojas Approach
I always approach the ABDOMINOPLASTY / TUMMY TUCK in an artistic way. Considering the entire body, assessing proportions, and pursuing flatness, definition, and curves in a harmonious way. The key is not to focus only on removing the excess skin and tightening the muscle wall, but also to achieve abdominal definition and a toned look to the extent of the patient’s wishes. Also, if the patient so desires, to gain beautiful curves in all the right places, like the waist, flanks, and hips. I always apply a scar minimizing technique where the length of the incision is minimized to avoid long scars. I am tired of seeing the classic and boring ‘just flat’ tummy tuck. Long gone are the days where the goal was to get rid of the excess skin and tighten the muscles. We have evolved and innovated, understanding that there is much more to achieve for an amazing transformation.
This includes respecting and elevating the anatomy, gaining abdominal muscle definition for a toned look, and for our patients that so desire it; reducing the waistline gaining curves and a beautiful hourglass figure.
