Few women escape pregnancy with ideal abdominal contour. Standard abdominoplasty and tummy tucks are perfectly suited for patients with severe stretch marks and redundant skin of the lower abdomen.
Sometimes patients with lesser deformities are scared away from these procedures by the presumed long scars that course from one hip to the other. The Center for Surgical Excellence reduces the fear and the scarring by use of a procedure called Endoscopic Abdominoplasty. This procedure makes two small incisions hidden in the belly button and pubic hair. Through these virtually invisible scars, a combination of liposuction and endoscopic tightening of the abdominal muscles restores the flat abdomen the patient enjoyed prior to pregnancy.
"Mini Abdominoplasty" makes use of a single scar in the lower abdomen, which is hidden by the smallest of bikinis, and is perfect for patients that fall in between these two extremes. Liposuction is often used to refine the transition zones of the abdominal sculpture, though tummy tucks can be carried out with or without liposuction, liposuction is often agreed to be a good complement.
