Abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck,” is an excellent and common surgical procedure to correct excess abdominal skin and soft tissue. There are many causes for this excess skin, such as pregnancy and significant weight loss. In addition, the abdominal muscles can be tightened to help correct a bothersome bulge and give a flatter, more defined contour of the abdomen. Dr. McFate is a board certified plastic surgeon in Austin, TX, and is fully trained in the latest techniques of abdominal contouring to produce optimal results*.
In many cases, a patient may need liposuction in addition to or in place of an abdominoplasty. A consultation with Dr. McFate can help you decide if an abdominoplasty in Austin is the right way to help you reach your goals. In addition, many times an abdominoplasty can be combined safely and efficiently with other procedures such as breast augmentation depending on the individual goals of the patient. By combining procedures in the same surgery, patients can minimize additional downtime and cost.
