Tummy Tuck

Many patients struggle with sagging skin and excess fat in their midsection that cannot be reduced with diet and exercise alone. 

Drs. Benjamin Boudreaux and Jeffrey Claiborne can perform a tummy tuck to slim and tone your abdomen and create the body you desire.

Why should our New Orleans, LA, patients choose a tummy tuck over other methods of body contouring?

Achieve a Dramatic Transformation

Although there are many non-surgical cosmetic procedures available, a tummy tuck is considered the most effective and comprehensive method of addressing a variety of issues, including:

Excess Skin

Excess skin is not only an aesthetic concern but also a potential health issue. A tummy tuck is the only procedure that tightens loose skin around the entire midsection, minimizing your risk of infection and improving the contours of your body. 

Stretched Muscles

Separated abdominal muscles can occur if the stomach is overstretched. This affects patients after pregnancy or extreme weight loss. Repairing the abdominal wall can create a more slender stomach and improve your comfort and ability to exercise. 

Stubborn Fat

Excess skin and belly fat often go hand in hand. Unlike other treatments, a tummy tuck addresses both, removing several pounds of fat from the upper and lower abdomen. We can even combine the procedure with liposuction to maximize your results. 

A Closer Look at the Procedure

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, usually takes between two and five hours at our surgical center located near the New Orleans metropolitan area. Our plastic surgeons create a discrete incision above the pubic hairline and target the fat, loose skin, and muscle separation in the abdominal area. When the contouring is complete, we carefully close the incision to ensure the most natural and aesthetically pleasing results.

Looking for More Comprehensive Results?

Abdominoplasty can be a fantastic way to enhance your midsection after childbirth. However, you may want to consider a mommy makeover to comprehensively restore your post-pregnancy body. A mommy makeover combines multiple procedures, like abdominoplasty, breast lift, breast augmentation, and more, to correct the areas of your body that fail to "bounce back" after pregnancy. By merging techniques into one streamlined procedure, you can get your body back and get back to enjoying motherhood as soon as possible.
