Understanding a Tummy Tuck

An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, involves the removal of excess skin and tissue that lead to abdominal bulging and sagging. The result is a more toned, firmer midsection, offering patients a rejuvenated and contoured appearance.

The traditional tummy tuck procedure focuses on removing excess fatty tissue and skin, along with repositioning the belly button for improved aesthetics. This approach provides vital reinforcement for the abdominal wall by tightening the midline tissue, addressing pseudo-herniation, and resulting in a noticeable enhancement of the abdomen’s appearance, often accompanied by a reduction in waist size.

Dr. Mark Tseng’s expertise spans various tummy tuck techniques tailored to individual needs. The most commonly performed type is the traditional tummy tuck, typically carried out under general anesthesia. This approach involves substantial incisions extending from the hips to the stomach. Dr. Tseng’s skill allows for removing excess skin and the tightening of underlying muscles, achieving remarkable results.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure’s History

Originating from medical necessity, abdominoplasty was initially employed to address issues such as protruding belly buttons and umbilical hernias. Over time, it became evident that the procedure not only improved medical conditions but also provided significant aesthetic benefits.

The first “dermolipectomy” procedures were done in the 1890s, leading to immediate body contour improvements. The procedure’s success led to its popularity in the U.S., culminating in the very first tummy tuck being performed in Maryland in 1899. Over time, the procedure evolved into a cosmetic solution, with tummy tucks addressing loose abdominal tissue and skin.
