Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck
Dr. John Anastasatos performed surgery for this patient pictured below.
This is what I call the Modern tummy tuck or Modern abdominoplasty. What are the differences compared to the usual tummy tuck?
For one look at the belly button. In my operation the belly button looks very natural and youthful. There are no cuts around the belly button. This is better when a plastic surgeon can do it because usually when someone makes a cut around the belly button it does never look as good as mother nature made it.
A lot of liposuction and lipo-sculpture is done with this operation. I am able to do liposuction over the whole abdomen, flanks, hips and back with this tummy tuck. Most standard tummy tucks do not combine liposuction. Liposuction helps to achieve a better contour.
Excess skin excision in a geometric form and abdominal muscle tightening.
This is more than a standard tummy tuck. The standard tummy tuck or abdomniplasty addresses the front of the abdomen typically. I like to offer the maximum body contouring with one surgery. So in this case the combination of a lot of liposuction and abdominoplasty yields such a superior result.
