The Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, procedure is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. It is particularly popular among women after pregnancy and among both men and women after significant weight loss. The Abdominoplasty procedure is designed to remove excess skin from the mid-section and to tighten up the abdominal muscles. Abdominal muscles can become loose or even separated and when that happens, like with excess skin, no amount of diet or exercise will be able to create that flat, smooth abdominal appearance desired.
Dr. Okoro also offers his patients the option of combining a Hysterectomy with the Tummy Tuck procedure. In order for this to work the patient’s gynecologist would work would have to approve and they would then work with Dr. Okoro in the operating room, each on their areas of expertise. While there are risks, as with any surgery, the benefits can include cutting both costs and recovery down time in half.
