Tighten Your Stomach with a Tummy Tuck

Perhaps the most sought-after procedure after having a baby, a tummy tuck removes any loose or sagging skin and works to restore the stomach area to its pre-pregnancy firmness. Excess skin can make two-piece swimming suits and other tummy-revealing outfits impossible to wear, and make you feel less than self-confident in your appearance, but that won’t be an issue after our Charlotte, NC plastic surgeon completes the tummy tuck and you have fully healed.

Tummy Tuck Procedure to Restore and Tighten Abdomen

During the procedure, our skilled plastic surgeon at Criswell & Criswell will make an incision below the bikini line and remove excess skin from the stomach area.

The doctor will also tighten the muscles, and repair abdominal muscles that have separated. The procedure can be performed on women who have had natural childbirth or a Caesarean section. Many patients can expect the removal or reduction in appearance of a C-section scar after a tummy tuck.

There are a few different options of tummy tuck procedures that may be appropriate, depending upon the condition of the patient. Our plastic surgery team is here to guide you and help you make an informed decision.

Breast Enhancement: Lift or Implants

After pregnancy and particularly after breastfeeding, women often lose the youthful, pre-pregnancy plumpness in the breasts. Sagging and loss of tissue from hormonal changes can be improved with breast augmentation surgical procedures. For those who do not wish to enlarge their breasts but want to reduce sagging, a breast lift addresses stretched and sagging skin and tissue.

Breast Lift or Breast Implants?

In a breast lift, an incision is made from the nipple down to the breast crease, and in some cases, along the crease. The surgeon then removes excess skin and may remold the remaining breast tissue to allow the breasts to sit higher and restore a more attractive breast shape. However, for women who want to add fullness to their breasts, implants may be the answer. Implants alone involve smaller incisions and less scarring than a breast lift, and add volume and firmness. Implants can also be joined by a breast lift for restoring both volume and perkiness. Implants are available in saline and silicone gel, and the skilled surgery professionals at our state-of-the-art surgery center in Charlotte can evaluate your condition to help you determine which procedure will be most effective for you.

Remove Excess Fat with Liposuction

Reducing stubborn fat deposits can enhance the final look of your post-baby body. While other procedures remove excess skin or tighten muscles, liposuction uses suction devices to remove fat from various areas of the body. Reducing fatty deposits in the waist, love handles and back complements the results of a tummy tuck, enhances the appearance of restored breasts, and can create that smooth, svelte, fit-looking figure you had prior to pregnancy.
