If you've reached your ideal body weight through diet and exercise but you still have an excess of skin and fat in your abdominal area that will not reduce, we'd like to recommend abdominoplasty or as it's usually known, a "tummy tuck."
There are many ways this extra skin and fat stays around the abdominal area, and no amount of diet or exercise will eliminate it:
Our procedure involves separating the skin from your abdominal wall after the initial incision has been made from hip to hip. Then, we bring your abdominal muscles closer together and affix them in place. Finally, we stretch the skin back down, remove excess skin, and make a new spot for your navel.
Depending on the scope of your surgery, many of our patients go home the same day. After a few days, all of your stitches will be removed and you can get started on the healing process. Most patients can expect to return to all activities in 3-4 weeks.Trichloroacetic acid – best for peels of a medium depth, this takes care of finer wrinkles and blemishes. There is a minimum recovery time from a trichloroacetic acid peel. You'll see your new, healthier skin in about a week.
Alphahydroxy acid – this is our lightest and most popular chemical peel, as it requires no recovery time. This treatment needs to be done more frequently to achieve the same results as the stronger peels. Typically, the results are apparent after a day of some flaking or redness of the skin.
The entire procedure takes no more than 15 minutes for the alphahydroxy and the tricholoracetic peels.
