Kirkland, WA resident find the secret to a flat stomach: a tummy tuck

The toned, smooth, flat stomach may seem like a myth. You hear about it, see images of it, read endless tips about how to achieve it. Yet, it seems virtually impossible to achieve – that is, without a little help from your trusted plastic surgeon. Dr. Tseng offers tummy tuck surgery at his offices in Auburn and Kirkland, WA.

What is a tummy tuck procedure?

Abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgery that can resolve many common concerns in the abdominal region. These include:

  • Say goodbye to stubborn belly fat – The nemesis of every dieter, that highly visible midsection bulge often stays firmly in place no matter that the scales say. A tummy tuck surgery includes liposuction, which removes excess fat cells to slim and smooth the abdominal area.
  • Stretch mark removal – As a type of scar, stretch marks are considered permanent. Topical serums and laser or similar dermatology treatments may lessen their appearance. However, the only way to actually remove a permanent scar is to remove the affected skin. During the tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon removes excess sagging skin from the lower abdomen, which is the area that stretch marks from pregnancy or weight gain most often appear.
  • Tone your abdomen – Muscles in the abdominal area naturally stretch and separate with age. This is exacerbated by pregnancy, weight gain, and other factors. During the tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Tseng will tighten loose muscles, shaping and firming the abdomen.
  • Improve your confidence – The greatest benefit of any plastic surgery is the wonderful feeling you get when you look in the mirror and love what you see.

About the procedure

Abdominoplasty is performed under anesthesia, ensuring your comfort. Dr. Tseng carefully locates incisions along the lower abdomen, so that tummy tuck scars are hidden by clothing, even a bikini. This provides an access point for removing fat and tightening muscles. Excess skin is also trimmed away, and remaining tissue is optimally positioned.

A quick look at our tummy tuck before and after photos will show you what a stunning difference this procedure can make. The results are permanent for most people, unless they experience significant weight gain or pregnancy in the future.
