Last month, Dr. David Whiteman traveled to Vancouver, Canada to attend the 40th annual meeting of the Canadian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (CSAPS). Dr. Whiteman is double board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery from both the American Board of Plastic Surgeons and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. During the CSAPS meeting, Dr. Whiteman attended lectures and discussions, as well as presented his research on advancements in abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery).
Tummy tucks improve the contour of the midsection by removing excess fat and skin and retightening weakened abdominal muscles. Patients can also choose a mini tummy tuck option which removes excess skin and fat, but does not address abdominal muscles. This body procedure is often popular in mommy makeover procedures and post-bariatric surgery. As part of the CSAPS faculty, Dr. Whiteman presented a surgical technique for tummy tuck surgery to improve patient results and safety. With his latest studies, abdominoplasty results can yield an improved waist definition in proportion to the patient’s body structure. This technique can be applied to both full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck surgeries.
