Restore Your Youthful Figure with Tummy Tuck Surgery

Portland Oregon Tummy Tuck
Are you tired of trying to hide that stomach pooch or extra bulges around the midsection? If you have loose skin or a protruding stomach after pregnancy or extreme weight loss, you may be a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery. For many women struggling with figure flaws around the midsection, plastic surgery is one of the most effective ways to achieve a flat stomach and slim figure. Whether you are dealing with loss of skin elasticity or outstretched muscles around the abdominal area, we can correct those figure flaws with a targeted procedure.

Am I Ready for a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tuck surgery is one of our most popular body contouring procedures, especially among women who have undergone multiple pregnancies or those who have lost a significant amount of weight. Excess skin and tissues can be removed or manipulated to create a more attractive midsection. We can also incorporate liposuction to remove excess fatty deposits around the waistline to give you a more contoured appearance.

If you can answer ‘yes’ to any of the following, you may be ready for tummy tuck surgery:

  • You have loose skin around the abdomen
  • You have a protruding stomach (because of genetics or otherwise)
  • You have lost a significant amount of weight recently and are left with sagging tissues
  • You have a ‘shelf’ of skin after weight loss or pregnancy that makes you very self-conscious
  • You have torn abdominal muscles after pregnancy
  • You have relatively good skin elasticity

Some patients are better-suited for the mini-abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) procedure, which focuses on the area below the belly button.

Undergoing Tummy Tuck Surgery

Whether you are undergoing a mini tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck, we will need to make an incision in the lower abdomen to access the tissues and abdominal wall. During a full tummy tuck procedure, we can tighten underlying abdominal muscles using a special cinching technique, and then re-drape the skin to create a sculpted and well-contoured look. We can discuss the procedure in more detail during your consultation.
