Sometimes diet and exercise cannot remove excess fat and skin around the abdominal area. Other times, pregnancy leaves behind muscles that have permanently lost their form, and stretch marks that won’t disappear. An abdominoplasty procedure (commonly known as a “tummy tuck”) will remove excess skin and fat, tighten abdominal muscles, and get rid of those stretch marks for good. The best part is that most incision lines can be easily covered with a bikini bottom.
While many surgeons rely upon a “single layer plication” during surgery, Dr. Racanelli employs a “multi-layer plication” on all of his patients. This intricate procedure involves tightening the muscles and fascia of the anterior abdominal wall in multiple layers. The result of this technique is a flat, tight, youthful looking abdomen.
In addition to the multi-layer plication technique, Dr. Racanelli performs liposculpture of the flanks (love handles) on all of his abdominoplasty patients. This liposuction procedure is included in the regular abdominoplasty package at no additional charge, and is an excellent way to produce a tight waist line with beautiful curves.
Those that have only gained minimal results with diet and exercise find that an abdominoplasty / tummy tuck is just what they need to bring their physical appearance to the next level.
