Choose Associates in Plastic Surgery for a tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Virginia Beach. Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) is a procedure that is used to recreate youthful looking, flatter and firmer abdominals. Patients who have excess skin and fatty tissue from pregnancy or substantial weight loss due to gastric bypass surgery can also benefit from an abdominoplasty.
The traditional tummy tuck includes removal of the lower abdominal skin from the level of the belly button (umbilicus) down to a level just above the pubic area. The abdominal muscles are tightened and the belly button is relocated. Liposuction can also be applied as an additional procedure to produce an overall desired effect.
