Tummy tucks are one of the most popular plastic surgeries and considered a “Most Worth It” treatment by RealSelf readers. But not all tummy tucks are created equal! I specialize in a type of tummy tuck that produces consistently excellent results with significantly less downtime and risk than other abdominoplasty methods.
The most popular technique I employ is called Avelar abdominoplasty, named after the Brazilian surgeon Juarez M. Avelar in the 1990’s. Of course, I also perform traditional abdominoplasty for patients who are not well-suited for the Avelar technique. For the vast majority of patients, however, the Avelar Abdominoplasty is the best option. Here are the highlights of this highly effective treatment, and how it may benefit you:
•Is gentler on the body.
Unlike other tummy tucks, the Avelar tummy tuck reduces fat and tightens skin without separating your skin and fat from your muscle, thus keeping your nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatic system intact.
•Incurs less downtime and recovery.
As a result of maintaining your body’s blood supply and nerve endings, there is less trauma from which to recover and a faster healing time.
•Involves fewer side effects.
Another result of preserving blood supply to your tissue is a dramatically reduced risk of side effects.
Avelar tummy tucks can safely be performed in-office with conscious sedation, combined with tumescent anesthesia, eliminating steep hospital fees.
