Regain the flat, firm abdomen of youth. No loose or saggy skin, no stretch marks or scarring, no belly bulges or love-handles. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a major surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall, dramatically reducing the bulge and flattening the abdomen.
In a full abdominoplasty, the skin above the umbilicus is pulled down to the pubic line, removing all the lax skin in between. The umbilicus is then placed in its new position with an improved shape. The abdominal muscles are sutured, tightening the abdominal wall. Dr. O'Daniel utilizes a revolutionary procedure called a "high lateral tension abdominoplasty with liposuction" - which he learned from procedures innovator Dr. Ted Lockwood more than 20 years ago - that achieves a firmer abdominal wall and narrower waistline than possible with a traditional abdominoplasty.
"Who doesn't want to look their best? Our bodies are a representation of who we are, what we do, and how we live our lives. Life's demands can, over time, leave our bodies needing a 'pick-me-up' of sorts. When that time comes, my years of experience can help realign inner desires with an outer appearance that instills confidence and pride."
