Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck Oklahoma City
Although a trim, smooth abdominal region is a common aesthetic goal, many men and women find it difficult to achieve even with a firm commitment to dieting and exercise. Certain factors such as age, pregnancy, significant weight loss, and heredity can make toning the abdomen an even greater challenge. Dr. Paul Silverstein is pleased to offer a safe and effective cosmetic surgery procedure for patients who desire a smaller, shapelier abdomen but have been unable to achieve significant results on their own. This body contouring treatment, known as abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, gives patients from Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Woodward, and other locations throughout the region the opportunity to have the slender, proportionate physiques they have always wanted.
The Tummy Tuck Procedure
After the patient is fully and comfortably sedated, the tummy tuck procedure begins as Dr. Silverstein creates incisions on carefully pre-determined locations on the body. Sometimes, successful treatment necessitates the repositioning of the patient's navel. These steps require the surgical skill and artistry of a highly proficient cosmetic surgeon so that final results are aesthetically pleasing and natural looking.
Next, Dr. Silverstein tightens the abdominal muscles and stitches them into their new position. This step of the tummy tuck procedure helps the patient achieve a firmer, flatter abdomen. After the muscles are pulled closer together, liposuction can be performed to remove any excess fatty deposits and improve the shape of the abdomen. To conclude the procedure, abdominal skin is pulled taut, and excess skin is removed to achieve trim, smooth contours.
Although scars after the procedure are inevitable, a qualified, experienced surgeon like Dr. Paul Silverstein is able to minimize their visibility. Often scars can be hidden by swimwear attire.
