Together with liposuction, abdominoplasty accounted for 388,636 cosmetic surgical procedures performed by board-certified plastic surgeons in 2019.
Why so many? Well, the average age of our citizenry is getting older. With age come weakened or separated abdominal muscles, stretch marks and loose skin and tissue from pregnancy, and significant weight loss. Undesirable bulges around the midsection make it hard to rock the clothes you wear and even harder to feel confident when unclothed. Armed with information, money, and the will to make changes, more and more women and men are turning back time through body contouring procedures.
“Reshape Your Body & Boost Self Confidence”
Tummy tucks are so popular because with age come weakened or separated abdominal muscles, stretch marks and loose skin and tissue from pregnancy and significant weight loss. Undesirable bulges around the midsection make it hard to rock the clothes you wear and even harder to feel confident when unclothed. Armed with information, money, and the will to make changes, more and more women and men are turning back time through body contouring procedures. Who are the best candidates for abdominoplasty or modified mini tummy tucks? Those with:
Stable body weight, but bulging bellies
Fat deposits under the skin, rather than internally
Loose dermal folds from big weight losses
Stubborn round midsections, despite diet and exercise
Relaxed abdominal walls and loose skin due to pregnancy or weight loss
A tummy tuck, or “body lift,” requires general anesthesia in a hospital setting. Incisions are made above the pubic area, angling to the hipbones. Abdominal muscles may be tightened, fat is liposuctioned where needed, and excess skin is removed. There will be significant scarring, although it fades and flattens with time and is hidden by underwear or swimsuit.
Jogging and regular games of tennis won’t fill out deflated breasts. Spinning won’t hide your wrinkles, and weight lifting and side planks won’t change your belly. Reversing these body changes takes something extra. Dr. Storm is one most qualified cosmetic (plastic) surgeons in the region, and guess what? We specialize in “mommy makeover” plastic surgery! Our mommy makeovers focus on three main areas:
Clients in their 40s or 50s often opt for something a bit more permanent, procedures such as breast lifts and tummy tucks to turn back the clock and to regain the confidence of a woman who is older and a whole lot wiser. While aging may cause breasts to lose volume, they lose lift, and the areolas and nipples enlarge. Dr Storm has done thousands of breast surgeries, including breast lifts, breast reductions, and breast augmentation using both saline and cohesive gel implants. There are a variety of ways to customize breast augmentation, using a broad spectrum of implant sizes and shapes. The implants can be placed either below the breast tissue and chest muscles or between the breast tissue and muscles.
