If pregnancy or weight loss have left excess abdominal skin in their wake, a tummy tuck is a worth solution. When performed by Dr. Tzamantaki with total attention to detail, a tummy tuck becomes the essence of a body contouring procedure. Folds of skin are transformed into a sleek exterior, while underlying musculature is repaired to both structural and cosmetic perfection. By addressing aesthetic pride along physical comfort, a tummy tuck is not merely a tummy tuck – it is an upgrade to one’s quality of life.
MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION
Understanding what is involved in abdominoplasty is the first step when considering the procedure. Dr. Tzamantaki believes that her patients are better served when the process, recovery and expected outcome are fully understood. There are several tummy tuck variations, each one addressing specific issues. For most patients, a standard tummy tuck consists of surgically tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin tissue that is located above and below the belly button. It should be noted that if there is an excessive amount of fat in the belly , liposuction may be needed to ensure an optimal outcome. A mini tummy tuck addresses mild skin laxity located below the belly button only. This variation of the tummy tuck generally does not address any bulging of the abdominal musculature.
An extended tummy tuck is performed when excess skin exists on the abdomen as well as the flanks. In this case, a longer incision is necessary to fully address all the excess skin.
To help her patients make the correct decision regarding abdominoplasty, Dr. Tzamantaki has developed a unique surgical philosophy. Rather than accepting any patient for cosmetic surgery based on their ability to pay, she goes above and beyond to determine what’s truly the best course of action. After a rigorous consultation process, her surgical plan must be on coordination with her patient’s goals and her confidence to achieve their goals must be absolute. If Dr. Tzamantaki accepts a patient for a tummy tuck it is because she has total confidence that she can provide among the best tummy tuck for you.

IN THE NEED OF SURGICAL REJUVENATION
It isn’t lack of diligence at the gum or inherited genetics that is sabotaging efforts to attain a flat midsection. The bulge is more likely due to separated or stretched abdominal muscles that cause the bulging appearance in the abdomen. If there is also excess skin on the abdomen, the pouch is emphasized. Abdominal muscle separation is called diastasis and often occur as a result of pregnancy. Unfortunately, abdominal muscles are not very elastic – once they separate and sag, they do not shrink back. Surgery is required to reconnect the separated rectus muscles and flatten the midsection.
PROPERLY REPOSITIONING THE NAVEL
An often – neglected part of abdominoplasty is recreated of the belly button. During a tummy tuck, the navel must be repositioned after the excess skin has been removed Dr. Tzamantaki is a perfectionist in positioning the navel properly, with all stitches hidden under the skin, making the resultant scar completely invisible. She considers it imperative that the navel looks completely natural with no tell tale stitches outlining the new position.
