To tighten all soft tissue layers of the abdomen and create a flatter, firmer appearance, the abdominoplasty procedure is a popular option with proven results.
At his South Carolina center, Dr. Wassermann carefully performs this procedure and can extend it into a comprehensive anterior (front) torsoplasty. This comprehensive technique eliminates the stubborn tummy bulge and sculpts attractive, toned, and incredibly natural-looking results, improving abdominal wall appearance and function.
His approach is modified to address each patient’s specific concerns, but usually includes liposuction of the abdomen and hips and super pubic fat, extensive abdominal wall reinforcement or plication and hernia repair if required. He removes as much abdominal fat and skin as possible and performs an upper thigh lift if necessary.
Most abdominoplasty patients are able to return to work and non-strenuous activities in about one to two weeks.
