Learn More About Minimally Invasive Tummy Tuck Surgery
Having a tight, well-defined waistline is one of the most sought after results in all of plastic surgery. Both women and men alike are bothered by those annoying upper abdominal belly rolls and those perplexing lower stomach “kangaroo pouches.” At Brandon Plastic Surgery, we now have a technique for tightening those abdominal areas without the need for traditional abdominoplasty scars.
Even when combined with the frustrating lateral fullness of so called abdominal “tires,” “muffin tops” and “love handles,” the solution can now be achieved by a single procedure without the need for extensive scars, incisions, drains, or sutures. For years Dr. Shienbaum has successfully utilized the revolutionary RFAL (Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis) BodyTite system in virtually every area of the body including the arms, legs, face, and torso.
Not everyone is a candidate for the Minimally Invasive Tummy Tuck procedure. The ideal candidates should have localized areas of fat or skin excess and be near their ideal desired weight. The BodyTite Tummy Tuck can effectively treat these areas by shrinking and tightening the loose fibrous septa which holds the dermis to the underlying musculature. However, individuals who have large fat deposits, excessive skin sag, and weak or protuberant abdominal musculature will be better served by Dr. Shienbaums Hourglass Tummy Tuck procedure.
The Minimally Invasive Tummy Tuck is performed at our office facility either with local anesthesia or “twilight sedation.” It is an outpatient procedure with no anesthesia, opioids, or narcotics and is easily tolerated by the majority of patients. Most patients can return to relatively normal activity and work in several days. At this time there will be some residual swelling, but no drains or stitches to remove.
Dr. Shienbaum has spent years perfecting his acclaimed signature 4-D Hourglass Tummy Tuck procedure with 360 Liposculpture and Brazilian Butt Lift. With thousands of proven results, he now applies this same expertise and dedication to his state of the art and cutting edge Minimally Invasive Tummy Tuck.
