Belly Button After Tummy  Tuck: Will it Always Look Like This?

belly button after tummy tuck

I always tell my patients that nothing is as natural as a god-given belly button, but I do my best to keep it as natural as possible after surgery. Belly button thinking… Read More

Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck: Anatomy of a Procedure

fleur de lis tummy tuck

A Fleur de Lis tummy tuck is something you may never have heard of. In fact, it may be something you will never need, but for a large percentage of my patients, particularly patients who have lost a great deal of weight, it is at least something that they should be made aware of. A standard Tummy tuck gives a downward pull to lax abdominal skin. This is fine for the average postpartum mom who has gone up and down in weight with pregnancy.
