Tummy Tuck Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, West Palm Beach Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and Body Contouring expert, utilizes a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove excess fat and skin, and in some cases to restore weakened or separated muscles. By creating a firmer and smoother abdominal profile, Dr. Reddy helps provide patients an improved body image and increased confidence.
Tummy Tuck: Why is it Used Dr. Kris Reddy, FACS, West Palm Beach board certified plastic surgeon, performs the tummy tuck procedure on a wide range of profiles and for a multitude of reasons, including: * Post pregnancy * Post or concurrent to liposuction to better sculpt the abdomen * After sudden or extreme weight loss * To rectify genetic predispositions
Combining Tummy Tuck and Liposuction: Primary Concern The primary concern for combining liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is that by combining the two procedures, the total expected time under anesthesia is increased. Anesthesia time should always be maintained at a safe level that is well within your state's parameters. The goal is to minimize the risk of deep venous thrombosis (dvt) which are blood clots in the veins) and pulmonary embolism (which can cause sudden death after surgery). Both conditions have a greater likelihood with longer operations.
Tummy Tuck: Secondary Concern Also, the body contouring benefits are often minimized if the two procedures are done at the same time. To achieve the optimal result, it is often best to remove the fatty deposits using liposuction. Then, wait until you see how the body heals. Once this healing is done then you can better sculpt the body using the tummy tuck procedure.
