Continuing our series on the top cosmetic surgical procedures of 2018 (as compiled by plasticsurgery.org), today we’re discussing the tummy tuck procedure.
The tummy tuck procedure, also known as an abdominoplasty, was the fifth most popular cosmetic surgical procedure last year, with over 130,000 tummy tucks performed in the United States. If you’d like to catch up on the series, we’ve already discussed the popularity of the breast augmentation and rhinoplasty procedures in the US; there were over 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed last year alone!
Is a Tummy Tuck in DC Right for You?
Some of the benefits of a tummy tuck include:
- Flattens the stomach area
- Improves the appearance of abdominal muscles
- Reduces the size of the waistline and hipline
- Enhances the overall figure
- Tightens stomach muscles
- Removes excess, loose, or hanging skin, which may be the result of weight loss or pregnancy
- Reduces appearance of stretch marks, particularly after pregnancy
Celebrity Patricia Heaton discussed her one reason for having a tummy tuck:
“Vanity,” she told People magazine. “I had four C-sections and my stomach looked like the map of the world.”
According to ranker.com, Star Jones also had a tummy tuck to tighten up the skin in her abdominal region after her gastric bypass surgery in 2003, which resulted in her losing over 100 pounds.
Should You Consider a DC Tummy Tuck?
The tummy tuck procedure can completely reshape the appearance of your abdomen by removing excess fat and tissue around the waistline and stomach. Unlike most plastic surgeons, our doctors take a holistic approach to the tummy tuck procedure in order to achieve the most natural, beautiful look.
Some tummy tuck options include:
- Fully tummy tuck
- Mini tummy tuck
- Extended tummy tuck
At Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery, we have found that the most exceptional results for a tummy tuck are produced when the entire waistline is shaped, rather than focusing on just the abdomen. This approach is so comprehensive it can help you drop several pant sizes and completely alter your appearance.
