Excess skin, weakened abdominal muscles, and stubborn fat deposits can be resistant to diet and exercise alone. At Moraitis Plastic Surgery, we can help you achieve a firmer, more contoured midsection. That’s why we offer tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) as a transformative solution to help you regain confidence and achieve your desired body shape.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tuck surgery is a customized procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, tighten weakened or separated abdominal muscles, and restore a smoother, flatter contour. Dr. Isidoros Moraitis, a double board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience, meticulously tailors each tummy tuck procedure to the individual patient’s needs and aesthetic goals.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

You are an ideal candidate for tummy tuck surgery if you have:

  • Loose, excess abdominal skin that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise.
  • Experienced changes in their abdominal area due to pregnancy.
  • Undergone significant weight loss and are left with excess skin.
  • Realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.

During your consultation, Dr. Moraitis will carefully evaluate your medical history, current health status, and aesthetic goals to determine if a tummy tuck is the right option for you.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

Tummy tuck surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to complete. Dr. Moraitis will make an incision across your lower abdomen, carefully removing excess skin and fat. He will then repair and tighten weakened abdominal muscles, creating a firmer foundation for your abdomen. Finally, he will reposition the belly button and close the incisions.

Tummy Tuck Recovery and Results

Following your tummy tuck surgery, you can expect some swelling and bruising, which is a normal part of the healing process. Dr. Moraitis and his team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions and pain management options to ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery. Most patients can return to light activities within a few weeks, while full recovery typically takes several months.

The results of your tummy tuck will be long-lasting, providing you with a flatter, firmer abdomen and a more defined waistline. By removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles, tummy tuck surgery can significantly improve your body contours and boost your self-confidence.
