If you're one of the millions of Americans that is fighting the battle of the bulge, you may be interested in abdominoplasty. Abdominoplasty is also known as a tummy tuck and can help you rid yourself of excess skin, stretch marks, and unwanted fat.

Dr. Dean Kleto has over 25 years experience with abdominoplasty and can help answer your abdominoplasty questions if you're in the Knoxville, Tennessee area.

There are two main types of abdominoplasty that address different areas of the body. In a complete tummy tuck, Dr. Kleto will work to remove excess fat, skin, and stretch marks from the entire abdominal area while a mini tummy tuck focuses only on the area below the navel.

You can expect the following from a complete tummy tuck:

· General anesthesia

· An incision along your bikini line

· An incision around your navel

· The removal of excess skin, fat, and stretch marks from your entire stomach

· Removal of fat from the hip areas to slim the stomach

· Your abdominal muscles will be sutured together for a tighter appearance

A complete tummy tucks differs from a mini tummy tuck in that a mini tummy tuck is performed only to the area of the stomach between the bikini line and the navel. During a mini tummy tuck, you can expect the following:

· Local anesthesia and a sedative

· An incision along your bikini line

· The removal of excess skin, fat, and stretch marks from the area below your navel

· Your abdominal muscles will be sutured together for a tighter appearance
