Abdominoplasty, also commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a surgical option available to patients of Texas Vein & Aesthetics in Denton and Frisco. The abdominoplasty procedure removes unwanted excess fat and skin from the patient’s abdomen area, ultimately providing a smoother and firmer tummy area. While diet and exercise are the choice method for a flatter stomach, some body areas simply will not budge without medical intervention. A patient who has achieved their ideal weight and still has loose or excess skin and accompanying fat accumulation in the abdominal area can achieve a more satisfying body image with a tummy tuck.

Good candidates to undergo a tummy tuck are not just patients who are or have been overweight. Many factors can contribute to the development of a lax and loose abdomen area, including:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Lack of skin elasticity
  • Pregnancies
  • Prior surgeries
  • Frequent or extensive weight changes

Results of a tummy tuck procedure are considered permanent. They can however be negatively impacted if a person is not careful to maintain healthy habits and gains weight or fails to stay in shape.

Patients unhappy with the loose or "flabby" appearance of their stomach are invited to schedule a consultation with our surgeon to discuss the possibility of an abdominoplasty. While the complete effects from surgery take time to fully develop, most patients are very pleased with the improvement to their physique. Patients will need to plan for a recovery period before returning to normal activities. This will be discussed with the doctor during the initial consultation.

For the most desirable outcomes, we recommend choosing a quality medical practice for your tummy tuck procedure. This can be achieved by calling Texas Vein & Aesthetics to schedule a personalized consultation, a step that is vital to achieving overall satisfaction from the experience. During this time, medical history, patient health, lifestyle habits, as well as patient input will be assimilated for integration into the treatment plan. Knowing what to expect and being prepared to follow directions following the procedure will help tummy tuck patients heal more efficiently and be able to completely enjoy their new image.
