How does a tummy tuck work?

Published on July 10, 2013

Dr. Wali’s Technique
Dr. Dev Wali performs the tummy tuck procedure with a keen eye on creating a sculpted form. He takes what is there and creates curves and contours by selectively removing tissue by surgical sculpting and liposculpting. Also he has mastered a unique method to create a beautiful belly button which is the cosmetic center of the abdomen. He prides himself on his meticulous technique and dedication to patient safety and satisfaction. He is known in the community and by fellow plastic surgeons as a compassionate artistic surgeon who goes above and beyond to care for his patients.

General Procedure
Abdominoplasty surgery lasts anywhere from one to five hours, depending on the desired look and the patient’s unique physiology. To begin the procedure, an incision is made just above the pubic bone area. This incision goes horizontally across the lower abdomen and sometimes around to the back. The skin is then stretched away from the muscle tissue, and excess skin is removed. The abdomen muscle tissue is tightened to provide a firmly contoured stomach and well-defined waistline. Finally, the incision is closed; and the skin is stitched back into place. Sometimes the procedure requires an additional incision around the navel in order to provide the best results.
