When you are considering breast augmentation surgery the biggest question can be “What size do I want to be?” During your consultation, we offer several ways to help you determine what size is best for you. Based on some measurements that the Doctor takes during your exam, we will have you try on “sizers”. These are actual implants that are put into a sports bra to help you get a visual of what that size looks like on you. This is a very helpful tool for you, the patient, to help you decide your size. Surgery is a very big decision for you and we want to help you in as many ways as we can to get it just right and make it a great experience.

Tummy tucks typically come in two varieties the: traditional full abdominoplasty and the partial abdominoplasty, or mini tummy tuck. The full abdominoplasty is typically used for patients with a large protruding stomach wall, while the partial abdominoplasty is used for patients with a small pocket of sagging abdominal skin.
Good Candidates For Tummy Tucks
The best candidates we see in our practice for abdominoplasty include patients who have reached their weight loss goal, yet retain flabby areas in the abdomen, as well as patients who have weakened abdominal muscles or excess skin due to aging, weight gain, or pregnancy.
Tummy Tuck Procedures
The abdominoplasty incision is made horizontally across the lower part of the abdomen. In most cases, the incision’s scar can easily be concealed by underwear and swimming suit bottoms. A second incision may also be made to allow the belly button to be placed into a different position. The partial abdominoplasty incision is shorter and generally does not require that the belly button be repositioned.
Sometimes liposuction is used as an adjunct treatment to contour the stomach for both the full and partial abdominoplasty.
