Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty addresses lax skin, as well as stretched abdominal muscles. Your tummy tuck surgeon will make incisions around the abdomen and carefully reposition, redrape, and remove hanging or sagging skin. Your underlying stomach muscles can also be tightened to restore a flatter, more natural look. Abdominoplasty surgery results in weeks of healing time before you can resume your daily routine.
Patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight that has resulted in stretched abdominal skin are usually candidates for a tummy tuck. Pregnancy can also lead to weakened or stretch muscles. As a result, patients who have given birth may be ideal candidates for abdominoplasty surgery.
The tummy tuck was once the only body contouring method for achieving a firmer, more toned abdomen. Now, Body By Bassin is proud to provide less invasive tummy tuck techniques that can achieve natural-looking results with minimal downtime.
BodyTite™ Tummy Tuck
The BodyTite™ tummy tuck can tighten the midsection for a slimmer waistline! The abdomen is one of the most notorious problem areas for patients. Over time, skin around the stomach may begin to sag and lose firmness, leading to unwanted bulging. BodyTite™ technology can achieve substantial results with minimal recovery time. Dr. Bassin uses BodyTite™ for tummy tuck to firm and shape the abdomen, sending radio frequency energy to areas of loose skin. BodyTite™ tightens skin and remodels collagen to enhance skin structure.
The BodyTite™ tummy tuck is designed to firm loose abdominal skin without significant downtime, as opposed to traditional abdominoplasty surgery, which can require weeks of recovery. Since BodyTite™ is a minimally invasive tummy tuck, there is less procedure time involved. Body By Bassin can help you achieve a tighter-looking midsection using BodyTite™ radio frequency treatment.
ThermiTight® Tummy Tuck
ThermiTight® tummy tuck can achieve a firmer, more youthful abdomen without the need for invasive tummy tuck surgery. The ThermiTight® probe sends radio frequency energy to the midsection, which stimulates a tightening effect. Heat energy also encourages the production of collagen fibers in the deeper layers of your skin; this can reinforce skin structure and elasticity. ThermiTight® is equipped with real-time temperature monitoring technology to ensure safety during treatment.
Dr. Bassin uses ThermiTight® to reduce abdominal sagging and drooping. The ThermiTight® tummy tuck does not require stitches or lengthy incisions. Instead, a tiny incision is made in order to introduce the ThermiTight® probe beneath the skin. ThermiTight® tummy tuck patients can typically resume their daily activities within a few days. If you would like to achieve a flatter, firmer midsection without undergoing surgery, then ThermiTight® may be right for you.
Aqualipo® Tummy Tuck
Remove stubborn belly fat and enhance definition with Aqualipo®. This water-jet liposuction procedure targets small pockets of exercise or diet-resistant fat around the midsection. Aqualipo® selectively removes excess fat cells without causing harm to other tissues. A stream of water gently dislodges fat cells from surrounding tissues; these fat cells are then extracted from the abdomen using a specialized cannula. The result is a slimmer, more contoured waistline.
Unlike traditional tummy tuck surgery or liposuction, Aqualipo® can be completed without extensive bruising, swelling, or procedure time. The gentleness of Aqualipo® water assisted liposuction allows for quicker, more efficient fat removal. Patients can target all areas of the abdominals, including the flanks, for symmetrical results.
SmartLipo™ Tummy Tuck
SmartLipo™ can achieve non-surgical tummy tuck results by removing stomach fat and firming skin using laser technology. Unlike other forms of body sculpting, SmartLipo™ achieves two procedure goals in one: skin tightening and fat removal. Dr. Bassin performs SmartLipo™ at his Florida plastic surgery offices to contour the abdomen and achieve long-lasting, natural-looking results.
During treatment, the SmartLipo™ cannula is inserted beneath your skin. The cannula emits laser energy, which melts excess fat cells. Liquefied fat is then removed from your body. Heat from the SmartLipo™ laser also produces a skin tightening effect. SmartLipo™ stimulates collagen fibers found in the deep dermis to reinforce skin structure and enhance skin texture. There is minimal bruising, swelling, and healing time following SmartLipo™ treatment, as opposed to a surgical tummy tuck, which requires weeks of recovery.
