A recent piece that ran in the online edition of The Boston Globe discussed a new and improved take on the tummy tuck, one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures at Aespala MedSpa & Plastic Surgery in Oak Brook. This “hybrid tummy tuck” utilizes a smaller incision as well as minimally invasive liposuction, like ProLipo laser liposuction for the same, dramatic body contouring results with less downtime.
Board-certified Chicago plastic surgeon Dr. Michael A. Marschall frequently combines these two body contouring procedures for enhanced results, as well as a decrease in downtime where applicable. ProLipo laser liposuction utilizes incisions so small that they do not even require stitches. This procedure also results in skin tightening, instead of a surgical removal of tissue. However, a “mini tummy tuck” does still require downtime as fat and skin are removed; typically, patients return to daily activities in about two weeks.
Gone are the days of the “cookie cutter” tummy tuck – results at Aespala MedSpa & Plastic Surgery of greater Chicago in Oak Brook, IL are customized and less invasive than ever before. If you suffer from mild to moderate “mummy tummy” from pregnancy and childbirth, or excess skin following weight loss, this approach to an abdominoplasty may be an option for you. But, there’s only one way to find out for sure, and that’s to schedule your consultation.
