Almost every Mommy Makeover includes tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty. This procedure gives a smoother abdominal look by strengthening the abdominal wall and removing excess skin. The abdominal muscles typically become stretched during pregnancy, so it can be difficult, even through the most rigorous exercise routines, to obtain a more toned stomach.
What are the benefits of tummy tuck?
An abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a safe and highly effective procedure performed to reduce excess stomach fat, tone loose, sagging skin, and refine laxity in the abdominal wall. Dr. Capizzi will reshape the abdomen, working to banish loose, troublesome folds of flesh and fat; tighten weak, separated muscles; and reduce evidence of stretch marks.

Who is a Candidate?
Dr. Capizzi will advise each client individually, taking into consideration, personal anatomy and medical records as well as the patient’s concerns. Factors that may determine a good candidate for an abdominoplasty include significant weight loss, pregnancies, previous stomach surgeries that need to be corrected, and the effects of age and gravity on the body.
Technique may vary from endoscopic, to 1-2in, to 6-8 in incisions. Variations depend on which tummy tuck procedure is determined during consultation.
