At Kole Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Kole is committed to providing expert plastic surgery options for residents in Willow Grove, PA, including tummy tuck procedures.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin often associated with dramatic weight loss or recent pregnancy and can also help drastically reduce the appearance of stretch marks. A tummy tuck also involves repair and tightening of the upper and lower abdominal muscles, as well as the obliques, giving your abdomen a smooth and firm underlying shape for a sleek and streamlined final result.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

Dr. Kole performs tummy tuck procedures under full anesthesia, making incisions in the abdominal area to allow him to lift the skin layer off the underlying muscle and fat tissue so he can resculpt the shape of the patient’s abdomen. Surgical sutures are placed to draw the muscles tighter and achieve a more defined and attractive shape. The oblique muscles at the sides of the abdomen are tightened and held in place to achieve an internal corset type of effect and create a smooth and healthy-looking waistline.
