Abdominal Etching Procedures
Plastic surgery helps patients to feel more confident by giving them better contours for various body areas. The abdomen is a major concern for many patients. If you have excess loose skin and/or fat in the abdominal area that causes you to feel self-conscious, Dr. Tim Janiga can address your specific concerns. We offer various surgical procedures to contour the abdomen. For patients who wish to get a contoured abdomen without surgery, we also offer non-surgical options in our medical spa. At Janiga MDs Plastic Surgery & Cosmetic Center we have a range of procedures for abdominal etching. Achieve your ideal appearance with a tummy tuck, liposculpture, BodyTite, or CoolSculpting.
A tummy tuck is a procedure that creates a smoother abdomen. During the surgery, extra skin and fat are removed. This surgery is ideal for patients who have experienced changes in weight, have redundant skin, or have gone through pregnancy. Tummy tucks are popular with women who have had children so they can get back to their pre-pregnancy bodies. To perform this, an incision is made along with the bikini line so it can be easily hidden with clothing. This surgery requires about six weeks of downtime for optimal healing.
Liposuction helps to remove excess fat in different body areas. A lot of people have areas of fat deposits that bother them, this is most commonly on the abdomen, thighs, and arms. With liposuction, Dr. Janiga can harvest the fat to improve the contour and shape of the abdomen. Patients are warned to avoid strenuous activities for two to three weeks while they are recovering.
BodyTite is a minimally invasive, safe, and effective procedure performed to contour areas of the body such as the abdomen. BodyTite is done with Radiofrequency Assisted Lipoplasty. Through a small port site, a medical tool is inserted and the device heats the skin and melts away the fat. This allows for skin tightening and body contouring in one session. With BodyTite, downtime is minimal, healing only takes a couple of days before you are back to your regular routine.
CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive. For patients who want a slim abdomen without surgical intervention, this treatment is ideal. The device suctions the superficial fat out and freezes the fat cells with cold temperatures. Once the fat cells are frozen, they die, and the body removes them naturally. Fat cells in the treatment area are permanently gone and the abdominal contours are improved. The best part of this treatment is that there is no downtime needed.
