Abdominoplasty From Our Bellevue Plastic Surgery Center
Have you worked hard to lose weight or tone your stomach but been unable to completely eliminate loose skin? Abdominoplasty surgery, also known as the tummy tuck or “avelar” abdominoplasty, may be the answer to help you achieve your aesthetic and physical goals. At A-To-Zen Regenerative Medicine, our highly trained Bellevue Board Certified cosmetic surgeon uses the tummy tuck procedure to help both women and men for a variety of different reasons.
Providing an Individualized Treatment Plan
Every person is different and therefore we find it important to meet with you early on to assess your goals and put together a treatment plan for you. As one of the most common types of plastic surgery, we are experienced at using this procedure to help clients like yourself meet your individual needs.
The tummy tuck surgery is often used for the following purposes:
- To help contour your abdomen after you have lost a large amount of weight.
- To help you get rid of stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise.
- To help moms regain the shape they had before getting pregnant/giving birth.
Even though exercise can be used to tone up the abdominal muscles which are underneath your skin and fat, it cannot tighten loose skin or get rid of stretch marks. Exercise and diet are also sometimes not effective in certain problem areas. A tummy tuck procedure may be necessary if you are not achieving the results you are looking for, even with a significant amount of hard work.
How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
Depending on the amount of fat or loose skin which needs to be removed, you will either undergo a standard, extended, or mini avelar abdominoplasty. Our Bellevue cosmetic surgeon will need to meet with you to determine the right procedure for you during an initial consultation.
