Abdominoplasty, sometimes referred to as a tummy tuck, is a rewarding procedure as it provides a smooth and flat abdominal wall. During a Scottsdale tummy tuck procedure Dr. Malek not only removes loose tissue, but also plicates both midline and oblique abdominal wall muscles, restoring a tapered waistline that years of exercise will not produce. For individuals with excess skin and lower abdominal fat, the tummy tuck procedure will be successful in removing that fold of skin and fat from the waist. The incision is made in the bikini line and hidden from view.
Patients seeking tummy tuck desire a more attractive and tighter abdomen. The procedure flattens the area, eliminating stubborn excess fat, and tightening the muscles. Dr. Malek has served the Scottsdale area for decades and provides an artistic tummy tuck experience. You can enjoy a substantial and dramatic change to your body.
Tummy tuck can achieve world class results, but it is most effective for patients in great physical condition and only looking to treat small pockets of stubborn fat. Good candidates also have realistic expectations about the treatment. It can also effectively benefit patients with loose, hanging skin.
Pregnancy can cause a woman’s skin and muscles to be stretched. The tummy tuck procedure eliminates the scars and enhances skin texture. This procedure is not recommended for women who plan to have children, because it only works best for those who are done having children.
A mini-tummy tuck is reserved for those with limited skin and fat redundancy above the pubic region. This procedure can be done through a small supra pubic incision. After a tummy tuck, you will be on bed rest for 3–4 days and walking in a bent over position for about 7 days. The total recovery time is about 4 weeks.
Tummy tuck recovery can last from two weeks to several months. After the tummy tuck procedure, it is recommended to cease any intense physical activity for at least six months. Call today to schedule your consultation and learn about the various benefits that tummy tuck can provide.
Childbirth, major weight gain and loss, aging, and the loss of skin elasticity can leave the abdomen area stretched and flabby looking. The unattractive folds, excess skin, tissue and fat are often simply impossible to resolve with diet and exercise. Many people, both men and women, are unhappy with the appearance of a flabby, loose tummy area, and come to our clinic to get it resolved. Nothing is more rewarding for us than seeing smiles on the faces of our patients when they glance in the mirror, and see a trim, firm tummy, free from excess fat, tissue and skin. Not only does a tummy tuck bring back the slim profile of youth, it restores feelings of self-confidence and overall wellbeing.
A trim, fit abdomen is one of the signs of youth. As we age, gain and lose weight, or bear children, the area can be damaged, unable to snap back to its original youthful contour. Modern surgical techniques provide the opportunity to restore the trim, firm tummy associated with youth. No more worries about wearing clothing that covers the area, and no more embarrassment about a flabby, loose tummy area. After a tummy tuck, you are empowered, able to wear more revealing clothing, and have a body you can be proud to show off.
When you come in for a consultation, the condition of your skin, abdominal tissue and muscle, and your overall health and health history will be reviewed. Candidates for this surgery will have one or more of these conditions:
Every person is different. The surgery performed will be based upon the unique needs of the individual. Some patients may require a “mini tummy tuck.” This procedure is less invasive, and involves a much shorter incision. This procedure is perfect for those who have a minor tummy pouch below the navel. The procedure involves tightening the muscles in the lower abdominal area, and removing excess fat and skin. A full tummy tuck is more extensive, as it involves two separate procedures: repairing loosened muscle structure and the removal of excess skin and tissue. What is right for you? Only a personal evaluation of your condition will answer the question. Considered by his patients as one of the best providers of the tummy tuck Scottsdale & Pheonix have to offer, Dr. Malek and staff invite you to learn about your options for this procedure. Namely, non-surgical tummy tuck, liposuction, or a combination of treatments. You matter to us, and we are here to help you sculpt and trim your body, and make it the work of art you envision.
