Traditional Abdominoplasty Versus a Mini-Tummy Tuck

For patients who are at or near their ideal weight but have yet to achieve a flat stomach, few procedures are more effective than a tummy tuck performed by Board Certified Knoxville Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto.

Abdominoplasty also can be effective at restoring elasticity to weakened stomach muscles in order to achieve a firm, smooth midsection. The procedure is effective for both women and men.

Each tummy tuck patient is unique. So during your abdominoplasty consultation, Dr. Kleto will evaluable whether you’re an ideal candidate for the traditional Tummy tuck, which addresses sagging or bulging across the entire abdomen, or a Mini-Tummy Tuck, which is predominately designed to smooth out the stomach just below the belly button.

Some patients who are considering a Mini-Tummy Tuck may be best served by Liposuction.

Other patients, such our Mommy Makeover candidates, are having additional body contouring procedures completed at the same time, which makes a Mini-Tummy Tuck more apropos than other types of abdominoplasty.

If you have additional questions about abdominoplasty, or the plastic surgery procedure more commonly known as the tummy tuck, please contact the offices of Dr. Dean Kleto online call (865) 366-4755 to schedule an initial abdominoplasty consultation today. Dr. Kleto serves patients in Knoxville, Sevierville, and Knox County, Tennessee.
