You may be interested in abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) to restore a slimmer, flatter midriff. If you are a good candidate for this procedure, it can be an excellent way to get defined body contours.

As someone considering a tummy tuck, you should know that this procedure is not a weight loss method. While bariatric surgery can be considered a surgical means of losing weight, abdominoplasty is a body contouring procedure. You can think of body contouring procedures as a means to define and enhance your body once you are at your ideal weight. During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Adam Basner, he can help you determine if your current weight and your goals for your body are in line with what a tummy tuck can achieve. Dr. Basner wants you to look and feel great, and he will explain all of the surgical options for restoring your confidence.
