A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure that tightens your abdominal muscles, removes excess abdominal skin and fat, and leaves you feeling more confident — with a slimmer, more sculpted abdomen.

Before & After

Post-bariatric treatment, mommy makeover

After significant weight loss, the resulting abdominal wall is often loose with weakened and separated muscles and excess skin and fat. After stable weight loss and optimization of nutrition, the abdominal wall can be tightened and the skin tailored to the underlying reconstructed core. Tummy tuck surgery can also help restore definition and a slim contour to the area most impacted by pregnancy. This procedure is commonly part of a tailored mommy makeover.

Tummy tuck and body mass index (BMI)

Abdominoplasty in Houston is not a weight loss procedure. Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann only recommend tummy tuck for patients with a BMI of 35% or lower. Patients with higher BMIs are at higher risk for complications and suboptimal outcomes.

Tummy tuck surgery: what to expect

We offer full and mini tummy tuck surgery and will work closely with you to ensure your procedure produces the results you desire.

In general, for abdominoplasty in Houston, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann will place an incision across the abdomen above the pubic area. In a mini tummy tuck, the incision will be made just over the pubic region. Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann will then tighten the abdominal muscles, possibly remove excess fat with liposuction, and will contour and trim away any excess skin to create a tauter, firmer,  and flatter abdomen.
