Get a smoother, firmer stomach with a Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, creates an abdominal profile that is smooth and firm. Using a combination of liposuction and sutures, excess fat and abdominal skin is removed, followed by the contouring of the skin, tissue and abdominal muscles. Many individuals often elect this procedure after undergoing pregnancy, or significant weight loss through diet and exercise.

Understanding the Tummy Tuck procedure
On the day of your procedure, Dr. Salloum will sedate you properly and then he will perform the tummy tuck using a combination of liposuction and surgical procedures to resculpt the stomach area. A small incision will be made, typically below the bikini line in addition to a few small incisions along the waistline, to firm the abdomen. Depending on the case, it may require a longer incision for an extended tummy tuck and (rarely) involve relocating the belly button.
While you may experience some bruising and swelling immediately after your tummy tuck procedure, once this subsides you will have the flat stomach you’ve always dreamed of!
