As a plastic surgeon who is interested in refining abdominal contour, I divide my practice into two eras: the time before I used the high lateral tension technique and everything since then. In the earlier era, the abdominoplasty procedure frequently left me a little disappointed. I could tighten the skin of the abdomen, but I didn’t feel I necessarily was creating a beautiful shape, such as I might be able to do with a face lift or a breast lift. Often the results seemed expressionless, lacking in form.
I offer my Chicago patients a wide range of Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) techniques. Each patient has a unique anatomy and specific set of personal needs. It is important to explore these issues so that we can select the best possible option. I share several patient experiences per the different techniques I offer in this article.
