Tummy Tuck in Katy, TX
Many of us dream of having a tight, toned abdomen, but no matter how much exercise and dieting we do, a flat tummy is elusive. Signature Plastic Surgery offers tummy tucks to residents of Katy, TX who want to have excess fat and skin removed from the abdominal area. Tummy tucks are an appropriate procedure for both men and women, and people of many different ages can benefit from this surgery.
Tummy tucks, or abdominoplasty, are performed by Dr. Stapenhorst to both remove fat and help restore muscle tone. Many women choose to have a tummy tuck as a result of loose skin on their abdomen that can occur following pregnancy. It is important to remember that if your weight fluctuates substantially following the procedure, the results of the tummy tuck can be damaged. The ideal candidate for a tummy tuck is someone who maintains a stable body weight and does not intend to get pregnant in the future.
During a tummy tuck, a fine incision is made between the navel and the pubic hairline. Dr. Stapenhorst then repairs any weakened muscles and removes fat from the area. The incision is then closed with sutures or skin adhesives. Following your tummy tuck, the team at Signature Plastic Surgery will give you explicit instructions that will help make your recovery easier.
Signature Plastic Surgery offers Katy, TX residents both cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, and will be more than pleased to assist you in achieving the look you want via a tummy tuck.
