Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is the surgical removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen, along with tightening of abdomen muscles into a tighter formation.

This cosmetic surgical enhancement procedure is designed for those who wish to have a flatter and tighter stomach. Sometimes simply dieting and exercising are not enough to improve abdominal contour. Pregnancy and successful weight loss all create changes that exercise alone doesn't fix.

Dr. Williams' Technique

Dr. Williams is known for taking his time on important details when performing tummy tuck procedures - like making sure the belly button looks natural and that scars are in more desirable areas.

Before & After

Tummy Tuck or Mini Tummy Tuck?

When the skin and fat is not excessive, a short scar version called a mini-abdominoplasty, or a mini tummy tuck, may be an alternative. 

The mini tummy tuck with liposuction works best for women in their early to late thirties who have had children. The scars with a mini-tummy tuck are shorter and have quicker recovery times. 

Finally, for patients that have little to no excess skin and good skin elasticity, Liposuction alone can be used to improve your abdominal contour.
