Tummy Tuck in Plantation, FL
A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to trim excess skin, repair weakened abdominal muscles and remove excess fat from the abdomen. The goal of a tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is to improve the appearance of the abdomen, consequently improving the self-esteem of the individual. If you have saggy skin in your abdomen, a tummy tuck is an effective solution to address this unwanted condition. In most cases, the distended abdomen is the result of a genetic predisposition or rapid weight loss, rather than a lack of exercise or proper diet. Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, III, MD, PA, FACS offers tummy tucks to residents of Plantation, FL, and other surrounding cities.
Tummy Tuck Procedure
Dr. Phillips will conduct a physical and medical examination to help him determine if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Since the needs of individuals vary, the outcome of this examination will dictate the exact technique he will adopt for your tummy tuck. Generally, a tummy tuck is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. It involves the strategic placement of incisions in your abdomen to allow Dr. Phillips to fix separated muscles, tighten loose skin and remove excess fat.
