A Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area to give a firmer stomach and tighter waist. After childbirth, the lower abdomen has been stretched and excess fat can accumulate in this area which is difficult to reduce despite an adequate exercise and diet regime. In addition excessive weight loss can result in excess skin which could be improved with an abdominoplasty surgery
"I am so happy with the results. They are subtle and appropriate. My husband says that I look beautiful every day! What more could I want? Thank you so much for a very positive and pleasant experience."

An abdominoplasty involves removing the extra skin and fat of the abdominal wall between the pubic area and the navel. Liposuction is often used around the anterior and posterior trunk areas. The incision is placed in the bikini line in the lower abdomen above the hair line. Any weakness or splitting of the abdominal muscles is repaired.
"Have had a wonderful experience from the first appointment all the way through from the office staff to Dr. Izquierdo. I feel wonderful and love my new look!"
Recovery from abdominoplasty surgery usually required 10-14 days of limited physical activity. You will be placed in an abdominoplasty binder to help compress the operated areas. Patients are encouraged to arrange child care help during their early post-operative period. Dr. Izquierdo will see you multiple times during those early post op days. Light physical activity can generally be started 2 weeks after surgery. Any vigorous activity and exercise should be avoided for 4-6 weeks to allow yourself healing time.
