Tummy Tuck

Premier Plastic Surgeon in Knoxville, TN

Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty in Knoxville, TN

Lot of people often strive to achieve a flat and toned abdomen. Sometimes a healthy lifestyle may also not provide a desired flat and toned abdomen. Many factors can contribute to this problem including age, weight changes, genetics, any previous surgery and pregnancy. These and other factors can lead to excess fat, loose skin and stretch marks. If you are experiencing the same, Abdominoplasty by Dr. Lo is the procedure you can consider.

A Tummy Tuck, or Abdominoplasty, is a popular procedure for anyone carrying excess skin on their abdomen. There are different types of cosmetic tummy tuck procedures:

Full Tummy Tuck

Full or Standard Tummy Tuck Surgery removes the excess fat and skin from the mid section and flanks. It improves the Upper & Lower Abdomen. It in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating a smoother and firmer abdomen profile. Tummy Tuck is a highly individualized procedure. This surgery is often performed in combination with liposuction to the abdomen or surrounding areas, but can also be combined with other procedures such as breast reduction, lift or augmentation. For a more defined result many women choose to have a combined Liposuction treatment to the hips and thighs at the same time.

Average procedure time is 3-4 hours. Both men and women can benefit from this procedure.

Mini Tummy Tuck

A mini tummy tuck targets the fat below the belly button. It includes a shorter, less involved procedure, a quicker recovery, and a flatter, slimmer lower abdomen. A Mini Tummy Tuck only addresses concerns on the lower abdomen, it does not tackle any problem areas around or above the belly button.

 

Extended Tummy Tuck

The extended tummy tuck is usually performed on patients that have excess fat deposits or sagging in their lower abdominal area and the hip or lower back love handle areas. An extended tummy tuck is performed just like a classic tummy tuck, except that the incision extends around the hips to the back which not only addresses the entire abdomen but also the waist. Due to this procedure being more invasive, patients are typically required to spend one night in the hospital for recovery.

Abdominal Etching

Have you been working out to get a six pack on your abdomen, but haven’t had success with getting rid of the last layer of stubborn fat preventing your abdominal muscles from showing through?  Abdominal etching is a type of liposuction that can help. It removes the fat to sculpt the abdominal fat to mimic the look of “six-pack abs.” Abdominal Etching is a sculpting procedure, not a debulking procedure one.

The surgeon will measure the body fat content before deciding whether you are a candidate for the procedure. Dr. Lo specializes in abdominal etching technique for both men and women.

In first consultation, Dr. Lo will listen to you, understand your goals, answer all your questions and make recommendations.
