A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that can dramatically change your figure and help you lose that excess skin and last bit of stubborn fat from your midsection. Some people find that no matter how much they diet and how often they exercise, they still have what they refer to as a “muffin top.” The sad truth is that this is most likely not due to much extra fat but is rather due to extra skin and underlying tissues that have become stretched out and are now hanging over the lower abdomen and upper pelvis. If this situation sounds familiar to you, we invite you to make an appointment at our office to see how a tummy tuck can help you.
A tummy tuck is only designed to deal with extra skin and tissues hanging over the abdomen. If you have excess fat in this area or around your love handles, hips or thighs, you will need to consider liposuction, which can be used in conjunction with a tummy tuck. Following this procedure, you may indeed find that you have lost a pound or two thanks to the skin and tissues that were removed. More importantly and more noticeably, however, your clothes will fit much better, and you may even be able to see a toned tummy.
Since a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure, you should plan on having anesthesia as well as a recovery period. The procedure is surgical because the surgeon has to go in and remove unwanted skin and tissue and tighten the underlying abdominal muscles. Tightening the muscles alone can significantly impact your shape as your abdominal organs will be held in tightly and your abdominal muscle tone will be more easily seen.
If you are tired of dealing with excess skin, weak muscles, and stubborn fat despite your healthy lifestyle, a tummy tuck may be just what you need.

People Can't Believe I'm 75!
by Joanne Wilburn
I'm 75 years old, and recently upon visiting various doctors, I've had three of them either walk past me staring or even walk past the examination room, not recognizing their 75 year old patient. I've even had one nurse tell me the doctor thought he had the wrong person in the examination room because my skin looked so young! People actually come up to me and ask to touch my face. I love it!
Professional and caring, skilled healthcare team!

In late October I had a work-related injury that resulted in a partial amputation of my left thumb. Because my bone was exposed, reconstructive surgery was needed in order to minimize infection and to save what I had left of my thumb. Dr. Kevin Myers determined that a Moberg advancement flap was the best option to maintain full range of motion and the most thumb length possible. My overall experience here was absolutely amazing! The entire staff was very accommodating and kind and worked in a very professional matter. They were always there to answer questions when I had them. My surgery went very well, and recovery was easy. A little over two months later, I now have a fully functioning thumb with full feeling and full range of motion! I am totally impressed with the work that the healthcare staff did! Although I hope to never need any reconstructive surgery again, I would not hesitate coming back here if I needed to for any issue. 100% would recommend to friends or family.
