It’s not unusual for individuals considering a tummy tuck to have excess fat or sagging skin above the pubic bone (medically known as the mons pubis). Abdominoplasty is designed to remove fat and tighten loose skin in the abdominal area, which can have a positive impact on the appearance of the mons pubis. However, if the pubic area is more than minimally saggy, a tummy tuck won’t help enough.

A mini tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an alternative to the standard tummy tuck. It’s designed to address:

  • Pooching in the lower belly
  • Loose, excess skin below the navel
  • Stretch marks underneath the belly button

It’s a great option for patients with sagging abdominal skin caused by aging, as well as patients looking to tone and tighten the lower portion of their stomach.

A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of breast and body procedures that are most commonly used to refresh and reshape a woman’s post-pregnancy body. Because of this, our patients tend to believe that a mommy makeover is only for mothers. However, since a mommy makeover includes multiple plastic surgery procedures tailored to your needs, it can be performed whether or not you’ve had children.

More than one-hundred thousand people underwent liposuction in 2017, the latest year statistics are available from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This procedure removes excess fat cells in a targeted area. Liposuction makes the treatment area smoother and tighter. It is especially beneficial for women following pregnancy. Pregnancy tends to lead to (in addition to a new bundle of joy!) extra fat in the belly, thighs, back, arms and elsewhere. You may find that you can't get rid of the fat, no matter how many crunches you do.
