Tummy Tuck in Deerfield Beach, FL
A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the abdomen through tightening flabby skin, repairing weakened or separated abdominal muscles and removing excess fat. Some of the factors that contribute to the occurrence of a distended abdomen include genetics, weight fluctuations, effects of the aging process, aftereffects of prior surgery (such as bariatric surgery), and pregnancy. Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, III, MD, PA, FACS offers tummy tucks to residents of Deerfield Beach, FL, and other surrounding cities.
Tummy Tuck Procedure
Prior to your tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Phillips will carry out a comprehensive physical and medical examination to determine if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck. He will also examine your abdomen for factors such as the degree of loose skin, amount of fatty deposit, and the condition of the abdominal muscles. The outcome of this examination will determine the exact technique that Dr. Phillips will use for your tummy tuck. The needs of each individual differ and the tummy tuck must be tailored to help them achieve their desired expectations from the procedure. Residents of Deerfield Beach, FL, and other neighboring cities can contact Dr. F. Leigh Phillip at Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Spa for more detailed information on the tummy tuck procedure.
