Texas Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Sacha Obaid
The goal of a tummy tuck is to give you a slimmer midsection. Dr. Obaid achieves this through three steps. The first step is to remove excess skin. The next step is to remove unwanted fat around the waistline. Finally, Dr. Obaid tightens the abdominal muscles to achieve a tight, toned tummy.

A healthy diet and a regular exercise are an important part of a healthy lifestyle. However, there is no diet or exercise that can lift sagging skin. In addition, during pregnancy, some women's abdominal muscles stretch so much that they cannot recover and are left permanently weak. This causes a small "pouch" in the lower abdomen. An abdominoplasty can correct these problems.

Liposuction is great at removing the extra fat we have built up, and at changing a woman's silhouette. Liposuction does not however tighten the skin that may have become lax with age or pregnancy or weight loss. Liposuction also does not tighten the underlying muscles to help firm up the stomach.
