The result is a smoother, toned skin surface and an overall thinner midsection.

Both a full and partial abdominoplasty address excess skin, stretch marks and excess fat that is seen after pregnancy or after significant weight loss. A partial abdominoplasty looks at the area mainly below the belly button, and a full abdominoplasty is when the entire stomach wall is addressed. In both, muscles can be repaired, excess skin removed, and fat reduced.

TO START

A consultation with Dr. Brady is the first step to determining which procedure will be best. Based on the current anatomical state of each individual and their  personal and medical history, a customized plan is created.

ESSENTIALS

  • Optimal results are achieved when the individual is near their desired weight. 
  • Full Abdominoplasty is a procedure on the lower abdomen and entire stomach wall. Dr. Brady uses a high lateral tension technique, which surgically sculpts the body while maintaining its natural curves.
  • Partial Abdominoplasty  (or "mini tummy tuck")  involves a shorter incision and the skin is only lifted to the navel. This "mini" procedure is ideal for patients who need just a little improvement in order to reach their desired results, such as those within 10% of their ideal body weight. It offers patients many benefits, including less scarring, shorter recovery times and an overall less invasive procedure.

RECOVERY / POST-OPERATIVE

The full abdominoplasty procedure takes approximately two to five hours and can be performed under general anesthesia, or local anesthesia with a sedative. Recovery time ranges from two weeks to a few months, but with a balanced diet and regular exercise results are long-lasting.

The partial abdominoplasty procedure is performed under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation and usually takes between one to two hours to complete .  After the partial abdominoplasty procedure, patients can return home the same day after a few hours of monitoring.
