Aging, genetics, pregnancy, and dramatic weight fluctuations can permanently alter the appearance of the midsection. Common issues patients are concerned about are skin laxity, muscle weakness, and excess fat, all of which can contribute to a displeasing silhouette. Dr. Hotchandani performs tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty or dermolipectomy, to restore the aesthetic quality of the abdomen by removing excess tissue and repairing the underlying musculature. Each tummy tuck procedure is customized to the patient’s cosmetic goals to produce results that complement their individual anatomy.
During a thorough consultation, Dr. Hotchandani will assess your condition and objectives to determine the best approach for you. Patients may qualify for tummy tuck surgery if they are in generally good health, are at a stable weight, and have a realistic expectation of their results.
