An abdominoplasty is a procedure that is more commonly known as a tummy tuck. It’s often conducted after someone has lost a significant amount of weight due to dieting or pregnancy. Mr. Salerno offers this service to men and women in Melbourne and the surrounding areas.
HOW IS AN ABDOMINOPLASTY PERFORMED?
A tummy tuck procedure is performed in the comfort of a state-of-the-art surgical suite. During the procedure, Mr. Salerno may move the skin away from the underlying tissues and also tighten the abdominal muscles. Excess skin and fat may be removed, sometimes with liposuction techniques.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR AN ABDOMINOPLASTY?
A good candidate for abdominoplasty is someone who meets the following conditions:
o Has a large amount of loose skin around the abdomen
o Has realistic expectations; although a tummy tuck may make a huge difference to your body shape, it is not weight loss surgery
o Has lost a significant amount of weight or has had a baby
o Is not planning on losing weight or having another baby
o Is a non-smoker
o Is healthy and well, as a physically able body bounces back after surgery relatively quickly
