Tummy Shaping

Plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman describes Smooth Tuck, a surgical technique for removing fat and excess skin from the stomach. The procedure improves the shape of the abdomen without tightening muscle, as is done with a standard tummy tuck.

The procedure combines aggressive liposuction of the abdomen and flanks and removal of loose, hanging skin. The result is an improved abdominal contour with minimal downtime.

“A tummy tuck is more of a skin and muscle operation,” Dr. Schulman explains. “This concentrates more on the fat.”

Advantages of Smooth Tuck over Traditional Tummy Tuck:
• Reduced post-operative discomfort
• More rapid recovery
• No belly button incision
• Large volume of fat is removed with liposuction (an average of 2 to 3 liters)
• Can be performed on patients considered too obese for a tummy tuck
