Tummy Tuck in Pembroke Pines, FL

A flat, tight, and toned abdomen can significantly improve your self-confidence and create a more beautiful appearance. Unfortunately, aging, genetics, pregnancies, and weight gain can make it difficult to achieve the sculpted abdomen beach lovers of Pembroke Pines, Florida, desire. Dr. David J. Levens is proud to offer the innovative tummy tuck surgery to his patients, which allows them to show off a toned stomach during summer days by the pool.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Whether you are interested in getting rid of unsightly stretch marks, dealing with excess skin from weight loss or childbirth, or want to correct a sagging abdominal region, a tummy tuck can help you achieve unbelievable results. Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck tightens and sculpts the underlying muscles in the abdomen while simultaneously removing unsightly fat and loose skin, achieving results that diet and exercise often fail to accomplish.

In addition, tummy tucks can be the key to restoring your body after pregnancy. When a woman is pregnant, the uterus extends, stretching the underlying tissues in the abdomen and often leaving even physically fit women with a bulging tummy. After giving birth, most women exercise in the hopes of restoring muscle tone to their abdomen. Unfortunately, pregnancy often makes it difficult to lose weight. When the abdominal tissues are stretched and loosened, the stomach may bulge and sag no matter how much you exercise.

Likewise, the stomach can become loose and droopy after significant weight loss. When even the most strenuous workouts are powerless to tighten the skin, a tummy tuck can help you achieve the toned body you desire. While liposuction can remove excess fat, only an abdominoplasty can tighten up loose skin and the muscles to achieve a flat, toned tummy.

Tummy tucks achieve their amazing results by sculpting the underlying tissues in the abdomen, smoothing out stretch marks, tightening up loose skin, and removing bulging fat deposits to achieve a flat, tight, and toned midsection. Each patient is unique, so each procedure is carefully tailored to ensure the desired results.  During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Levens will explain the procedure to you and help decide what will work best for your body type.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Our patients utilize abdominoplasty to reduce the appearance of bulging fat near the center of the stomach or belly button. The tummy tuck procedure leaves only a small scar that is easily covered up by underwear or a bathing suit. Most patients feel that the hardly noticeable scar is well worth their spectacular results.

Good Candidates for Abdominoplasty

Good candidates for the tummy tuck procedure include:

  • Healthy women and men who are of normal weight but suffer from sagging, loose, or paunchy midsections.
  • Women with issues relating to pregnancy such as stretch marks, sagging skin, or loose abdominal muscles.
  • Those dealing with bulging, droopy, and loose muscle tissues in the abdomen as the result of weight loss, aging, or poor posture.
