Dr. David B. Reath is a board-certified plastic surgeon located in Knoxville who is highly experienced in abominoplasty. If you have loose skin and stubborn fat in your abdomen, you are not alone. Many women experience a bulging stomach that is nearly impossible to lose after pregnancy or weight loss.
Many of Dr. Reath's patients report sagging skin and stretched out abominal muscles after pregnancy. Many have lost weight and have excess tissue that won’t go away. Almost all have tried dieting and exercising and are discouraged by their results. In fact, patients find that as they lose weight the skin becomes looser and looks worse!
Abdominoplasty is designed to repair the abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and fat. A tummy tuck addresses three main areas of concern: fat is removed, muscles are tightened, and excess skin is removed. If you think you are a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery, consider a consultation with Dr. Reath in his Knoxville office.
