I was asked about improving the shape of the upper abdominal area during a tummy tuck. What is the best way to do this? There are several things that can contribute to fullness in this area:
weakness of the abdominal wall
fat on the inside around your intestines.
we address all of these during a tummy tuck except the fat on the inside. I routinely perform liposuction in this area to help thin out the area ( which normally has a bit more fat ) I feel strongly that lipo-abdominoplasty techniques provide our patients with the best shape possible.
