Reverse tummy tuck from Plano surgeon restores youthful upper abs

Reverse Tummy Tuck Plano TX Fluctuations in weight, or pregnancy, can result in loose skin around the midsection. Healthy eating and exercise are vital to overall wellness, but they do little to reduce sagging skin. Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, removes excess skin and fatty tissue, tightening abdominal contours. Dr. Patrick Obasi also offers reverse tummy tuck for Plano area patients who need to focus on the upper abdominal area.

Traditional v. reverse tummy tuck

While each case is unique, a tummy tuck typically involves an incision across the hips, at the public line. A second incision frees the navel. Skin is loosened from the abdominal wall, and muscles and fascia are tightened. Liposuction may be used to ease transition to the surgical zone. Excess skin is removed, and incisions are sutured. This contours the lower abdomen, with some benefit to the upper area as skin is tightened.

There are two important distinctions between conventional abdominoplasty and a reverse tummy tuck:

  • Reverse tummy tuck specifically addresses loose skin above the navel.
  • Incision are located at the breast crease. In some cases, the horizontal incision is continuous, from breast to breast.

The ideal candidate

How do you know if you might benefit from reverse tummy tuck? Take your shirt off and stand in front of a mirror. Bend forward at the waist. If flesh from belly button to the pelvic area looks smooth and tight, but skin from bra to navel is hangs downward, this procedure will help.

A good candidate for reverse tummy tuck surgery:

  • Does not smoke.
  • Has reasonably good overall health.
  • Is at or near ideal body weight.
  • Has realistic expectations for outcome.
