Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as the tummy tuck, offers patients an opportunity to reclaim their figures. A tummy tuck is a sophisticated form of cosmetic surgery that removes portions of excess skin and tissue from the abdomen to create a smoother, flatter stomach area. Depending on your particular goals and body type, there are a different types of tummy tuck techniques that are available.
An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Richard Bartlett can help you determine what type of procedure is right for you. For example, a newer technique called the floating abdominoplasty (FAB for short) allows for a greater level of tightening of the abdominal muscles.
