A lot of patients mention that they gave up their flat tummies to have children. And it’s true. Pregnancy, as well as aging, weight fluctuations, heredity, and even prior surgery can leave your abdominal area protruding or saggy.
At Kevitch & Chung, when we do a tummy tuck, we not only remove excess fat and skin, but also restore weakened or separated muscles. Limited liposuction is used to contour the abdominal area to make the body look shapely and more attractive. When we tighten the muscles, it narrows the waist as well.
We’re also very mindful of where we place the scars — we understand you want them to be below the bikini or underwear line. And the shape of the belly button is very important, too. An oval shape makes the body look longer. (Men, however, want round belly buttons.)
When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll answer all your questions about the procedure, the scar, recovery time, and more. We’ll explain the whole procedure and all the options you have. As board-certified plastic surgeons, you can be sure we have had the appropriate training and credentials, but we encourage you to ask anything you want to know to make you more comfortable.
