Abdominoplasty – Miami Body-Sculpting Options

Posted November 06, 2015 in Plastic Surgery

Abdominoplasty patients are looking to achieve a great-looking stomach. When someone’s abdomen looks out of shape, this typically means that it has fatty tissue pockets, lax skin, and drooping muscle tissue. How do these form in the first place?

The aging process is part of what causes sagging skin. As the skin’s collagen protein production rate declines over time, its elasticity lessens. Because it is less elastic, it is less able to conform to the body’s contours.

Dramatic weight gain or loss can exacerbate this issue while also creating pockets of fat. Pregnancy and childbirth involve weight changes and a loosening of the abdominal muscles. These issues can also be genetic. To correct them, abdominoplasty is usually needed.

Skilled, experienced surgeon Dr. Daniel Careaga has performed numerous abdominoplasty surgeries for Miami-area patients and knows what it takes to recontour the abdomen. Contact us to schedule a consultation and learn more.
