Abdominoplasty Surgery

Maryland Tummy Tuck

For some men and especially for women, no amount of diet and exercise can achieve the flat abdomen they want. Factors such as pregnancy, genetics, weight fluctuation, and age can produce lax abdominal skin, stubborn fat pockets, and stretched abdominal muscles that mar their appearance. For those of you in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland, abdominoplasty (a tummy tuck) can address these abdominal issues, while creating the firm, flat stomach you seek.

Maryland cosmetic surgeon Dr. Henry Garazo offers terrific tummy tuck results to his patients at Plastic Surgery Services. By removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightening your abdominal muscles, Dr. Garazo can offer an improved abdominal profile you will be proud to show off. Depending upon the extent of the issues you want to address, Dr. Garazo can perform either a full or mini-tummy tuck. A full Maryland tummy tuck addresses both your upper and lower abdomen, while the less invasive mini-tuck offers improvement to your lower abdomen only.

The best candidates for an abdominoplasty include men and women who are unhappy with their abdominal profile. They are healthy non-smokers with realistic expectations about the results they seek. Although abdominoplasty can offer great improvement to post-pregnancy bellies, women planning future pregnancies should postpone their procedure, since the next pregnancy can mar the results. It is also suggested patients be as close to their ideal weight as possible when undergoing the procedure.

An abdominoplasty can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as liposuction or breast augmentation for a more complete body makeover. Through careful consultation with Dr. Garazo, you can determine whether a tummy tuck alone or a combination of procedures can offer the beautiful body you seek.
