In a traditional tummy tuck, the surgeon places an incision in the bikini-line about 1” above the pubic bone. Next, the abdominal skin is lifted up to the lower rib cage area, the loose underlying abdominal muscles are brought together and sutured, the belly button is relocated to its new position on the belly, and the skin is pulled down to the site of the incision. Before final suturing, the excess skin and fat are removed, resulting in a flat abdominal contour. Unfortunately, this technique does not necessarily result in the natural look of a youthful abdomen, and the scar is often more noticeable than one would like.
The High-Definition Tummy Tuck™ procedure parts ways with the traditional tummy tuck to create a more sculpted look: [A] the incision is 1-1 1/2” lower—it’s placed within the pubic hair and in the groin crease, which greatly minimizes the scar’s appearance; [B] the trade-marked three-dimensional abdominal silhouette and definition is recreated during the procedure; and [C] the abdomen is carefully liposuctioned to sculpt the fatty areas away and to trim the waistline.
This signature procedure has been highlighted by respected and prominent news sources; such as, CNBC, Reuters, Smart Money and over 100 print publications.
