This is a procedure intended for women and men who have loose abdominal skin, and/or a significant amount of abdominal fat that is not improved by dieting or exercise.  You may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty if you have one or more of the following conditions:


Excess or loose sagging abdominal skin.  An abdomen that protrudes or is out of proportion to the rest of the body
Abdominal muscles that have loosened through pregnancy or aging.  Excess fat that is localized beneath the abdominal skin
If an individual plans to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight, this should be discussed prior to deciding on this procedure. Scars from previous abdominal surgeries that are below the belly button are typically removed during the procedure. This includes most cesarean section scars. Scars above the belly button may at times, be limit the results of the abdominoplasty.​



​The Natural Tummy: Horizontal Tightening of the Muscle:  ​The standard tightening of the tummy muscles is done in a vertical direction. These are the rectus muscles or those muscles that give the "six pack abs". This form of tightening tends to hide the rectus muscles and give the tummy and un-natural board like look. The youthful, attractive tummy still shows the shape of the underlying muscles and it is important to keep the shape of those muscles visible and place them back into their normal position. Dr. Yousif, in 2001 published a new way to tighten the rectus muscles that allows the beautiful shape of the tummy to remain visible. This is called horizontal plication(tightening) and tightens the rectus muscle regaining its youthful shape.​​ Look at the last case of a young man who had lost weight.  The reuslts that were acheived with the visiblity of his "abs" would not have been possible if he had a tummy tuck done the standard way.
 

Natural Looking Designed To You. Although each person's results will differ, before and after photos are good examples of potential changes. They should be used not only as a comparison of techniques and surgeons, but are good starting points for evaluation, comparison and discussion with your surgeon. Please note that these are post surgical photos that are not suitable for all audiences. Viewers should be 18 or older to view the gallery images.

 

 

 

The Scars:  The standard teaching for the placement of scars is 6 centimeters or 3 inches above the pubic bone. Dr. Yousif believes that this is much too high and is significantly above most of the bathing suits of the current day and fashion. Dr. Yousif maintains the scars at or slightly above the pubis. This allows the most scars to be easily hidden beneath most undergarments or bathing suits.  Anesthesia and ​​​​​​​Surgery Facility:​ The abdominoplasty and its variations are most comfortably performed under general anesthesia in a surgery center or hospital setting. Occasionally, a mini-abdominoplasty can be performed under intrave​​​nous sedation with local anesthetic, however the tightening of the muscle layer may be uncomfortable.​​​
