in Bellevue, WA
Even with the most steadfast commitment to healthy eating and exercise, the tummy can be a difficult area of the body to tone. Significant weight loss, pregnancy, aging, heredity, and prior surgery can result in loose folds of skin and excess fat in this area for many people.
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and can restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles, improving your appearance, self-confidence, and quality of life.
Double board-certified cosmetic surgeon John Bullis, M.D., has been performing highly successful tummy tucks with surprisingly minimal downtime for several years. He applies his extensive experience with this procedure and advanced knowledge of anatomy to every tummy tuck he performs to help patients achieve their aesthetic and physical goals with comfort and ease. In addition to traditional abdominoplasty, Dr. Bullis performs the Avelar tummy tuck for dramatic contour improvements with minimal trauma to the body and less downtime than traditional tummy tucks. The Avelar tummy tuck reduces fat and tightens skin without separating your skin from your muscle, a surgical technique that preserves your nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatic system, and thus dramatically reduces your downtime and risk.
