The “weekend tummy tuck” certainly sounds like a gimmick, but what I’m referring to is an actual body contouring surgery I perform here at A-to-Zen Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetics that consistently delivers impressive benefits for my clients. Suitable for many but not all, I perform a special type of tummy tuck called the Avelar tummy tuck, a surgical technique known for minimizing downtime and delivering results fast.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Developed by a Brazilian surgeon, Juarez M. Avelar, in the 1990s, the Avelar tummy tuck is easier on your body because it involves less trauma. Traditional tummy tucks remove excess skin and fat by lifting and separating your skin and fat from your muscle, which destroys blood vessel connections and causes tissue injury. The Avelar technique reduces fat and tightens skin without separating from the muscle, which preserves all your nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatic system, drastically reducing side effects and downtime.
Since there’s less trauma to the body with the Avelar tummy tuck technique, there’s less healing to do, which means less downtime for you! Even better, you’ll also enjoy a decreased risk of side effects since you’re preserving your blood supply to your tissues. This treatment is also cost-effective because it can be performed in-office without steep hospital fees.
