Abdominoplasty surgery, also known as a tummy tuck, is a popular cosmetic procedure in Atlanta, GA which the surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdominal areas while simultaneously tightening the surrounding muscles. Although it is a major surgical procedure, abdominoplasty can provide dramatic results. We invite all of our tummy tuck patients to learn more about our Body Package, a collection of items that is designed specifically to maximize the benefit of abdominoplasty procedures.
Full Tummy Tuck
Sometimes diet and exercise are simply not enough to completely eliminate certain fatty tissues. You may work yourself into the best shape you can possibly be in, yet still find yourself with stubborn deposits of fat around your midsection. It may be that your abdominal muscles have stretched or separated, making them unable to flatten as they once could.
At our Atlanta, Georgia offices, we will evaluate whether abdominoplasty is the best option for you. When you see Dr. Whiteman for your consultation, it is important to be frank and open with him about your expectations, your health, and your habits. Only with full and complete participation on your part will Dr. Whiteman be able to properly plan your tummy tuck procedure.
Mini Tummy Tuck
When a patient requires a small amount of fat be removed from the abdomen, but not such a large amount as to require a full tummy tuck, a “mini” tummy tuck may be recommended by Dr. Whiteman. This procedure is often limited to patients who only require a small amount of tissue to be removed, usually below the navel.
Male Tummy Tuck
Men, particularly those who are reaching the age of 40, can have trouble eliminating fat deposits from their midsection. Our Atlanta, Georgia office offers male abdominoplasty surgery to rid patients of excess weight that diet and exercise could not control. For patients who need only a minor touch-up, our office also offers mini- tummy tuck surgery for men as well.

Q: Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck procedure?
Candidates for tummy tuck surgery include men and women with stubborn fat deposits in the abdominal wall or abdominal muscles that require tightening. Tummy tuck candidates should be in good mental and physical health before their procedure. Women considering a tummy tuck should only do so if they are done having children, as pregnancy can negatively affect the results of a tummy tuck.
Q: How long before I begin to notice the results from my tummy tuck?
Patients typically notice a difference as their swelling begins to subside. It’s important to give your body the necessary time to heal in order to see the best possible results.
