Tummy Tucks are quite popular cosmetic procedures, can be an excellent option for individuals with otherwise normal weight and body proportion but who suffer from saggy abdominal profiles and In fact, Tummy Tucks were long the only cosmetic surgical technique for removing excess stomach fat and are a staple of countless “Mommy Makeovers”.
So are “Custom Tummy Tucks” necessary for each patient? The answer, according to Board Certified Seattle Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Shahram Salemy, is YES! Every patient is different, and it’s critical that a Board Certified Surgeon takes into the account each patient’s unique goals, needs and profile when planning the procedure. Dr. Salemy meets with prospective patients in his Seattle plastic surgery clinic and provide a thorough, and comprehensive pre-operative consultation to understand what his patient’s goals are for the tummy tuck. Before every surgery, Dr. Salemy takes the time to listen to and know his patients, to provide patients with a personalized, custom treatment that reflects his patient’s specific aesthetic goals.
During the Tummy Tuck procedure, Dr. Salemy will remove excess fat and skin and, in many cases, rejoin or tighten weakened or separated abdominal muscles to help narrow the waist or achieve a firmer, flatter stomach profile. Dr. Salemy is also mindful about minimizing incision length and placement, and ensuring post-operative care is comprehensive and thorough to aid in a smooth and quick recovery.
