As much loose skin and fat from the belly button to the pubic area is removed and replaced with the skin from above the belly button
If the muscles are separated from their normal position, they with be retightened to increase strength and flatten the abdominal wall
To complete the procedure, we remove excess fat along the waist and hips and upper abdomen to streamline the results
Our goal is to provide superior results while not compromising on patient safety, comfort and experience. While we cannot guarantee that every patient will have the perfect experience, we strive to make that happen. Contouring the waist with liposuction and using injectable numbing agents to minimize pain, are just some of the ways we strive to improve your experience and results.

Rectus diastasis is thinning and separation of the midline fascia of the abdominal wall between the rectus muscles. This occurs as a result of abdominal expansion usually seen after pregnancy or with massive weight gain.
The symptoms are less core strength, an increased abdominal bulge or pooch, and an unattractive separation in the midline of the abdomen.
Rectus diastasis can be corrected with plication (sewing) of the abdominal wall, usually performed during a tummy tuck.
A seroma is typically a minor complication that sometimes occurs after a tummy tuck. After removal of tissue, your body produces and sends fluid to that area to encourage healing. Sometimes there is too much fluid that collects in one area and this is called a seroma
Seromas are typically not harmful and are usually prevented after a tummy tuck by placing drains. The drains will stay in place for approximately 3-7 days on average.
If a seroma develops after removal of the drains, then either your body will eventually absorb the fluid or it can be drained in clinic. It is rare to need any surgical intervention.
