Want to turn a flabby stomach into a fit one? With an abdominoplasty, you can ditch that beer belly for a set of toned abs! Part of every abdominoplasty is the incision pattern.

The incision needed for a full abdominoplasty stretches from one hip to the other, travelling horizontally across the stomach. It’s made below the belly button and above the pubic hairline. This allows the plastic surgeon access to the underlying tissues, including drooping muscle tissue and excess fatty deposits. For access to tissues on the upper abdominal area, an incision around the belly button can also be created.

For a trimmer tummy that you’ll be proud to bare, get in touch with our office today and set up an abdominoplasty consultation. Dr. Stephen Herring, a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, will happily explain the procedure in greater detail.
