A Tummy Tuck, or Abdominoplasty, corrects what time, gravity, and pregnancy do to the abdominal region. Dr. Bartlett removes excess fat and skin, giving the abdomen a new, thinner look. The abdominal region has a naturally contoured look fitting one´s body type and size.
A growing percentage of people yo-yo between extremes in weight causing diastasis (separation of the abdominal muscles). Abdominoplasty corrects this diastasis. The abdominal muscles are reattached to each other in the mid-line. The most frequent complication of abdominoplasty is the accumulation of fluid under the abdominal skin and fat flap. Drains have been inserted to remove this fluid for years but a better approach in to suture the flap to the muscle without drains.
“Very pleased with the entire experience with Dr. Bartlett! From the initial consultation through the 3-month post-surgery checkup, this has been a wonderful experience. I was nervous because I hadn’t had any surgery before, but the staff here helped me to not be nervous throughout the entire process. Everyone here is very kind and accommodating! Will definitely recommend to all my friends!!!
