Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty Treatment in El Paso with Cosmetic Surgery of the Southwest

Tummy tuck surgery is an effective treatment to correct abdominal muscle separation and excess skin caused by pregnancy or loss of significant weight. As no amount of exercise will realign separated muscles or sufficiently tighten excessive loose skin, an abdominoplasty is the best way to see the results you want. Our El Paso plastic surgeon, Dr. John W. Pate, provides tummy tucks to treat these aesthetic issues and provide patients with smooth, lean midsections.

Tummy Tuck Options at Cosmetic Surgery of the Southwest

Dr. Pate is skilled and experienced in tummy tuck surgery to help patients achieve their ideal selves. Whether a small amount of excess skin distracts from an otherwise fit and healthy body, or the physical changes of pregnancy have made it hard to feel confident, Dr. Pate offers treatment to help. His tummy tuck services include:

Full Tummy Tucks – A full tummy tuck is often recommended for women who have experienced one or more pregnancies and have noticed the aesthetic effects of muscle separation on their abdomens. With this common problem, it’s impossible to achieve a taut stomach through exercise. Through a complete tummy tuck, Dr. Pate is able to treat both the upper and lower abdomen by removing excess skin and strengthening muscles. We are committed to helping patients achieve exceptional results with comprehensive tummy tuck procedures.

Mini Tummy Tuck – In the event that muscle separation is not one of the issues contributing to cosmetic abdominal issues, a mini tummy tuck may be the best solution for your needs. This is also applicable for post-pregnancy and post-weight loss patients; however the procedure typically involves removing only loose skin in one particular area of the stomach, which can lead to a quicker recovery for this treatment option. The presence of lax skin from multiple pregnancies can also hide the results of healthy activity, which is where a mini tuck can be vital to showing off your hard work.

Adding Liposuction to Your Tummy Tuck Surgery

We can pair either a mini tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck with liposuction to optimize results of your treatment. Dr. Pate’s training allows him to provide both services in one procedure while assuring patient safety and exceptional results.  If you have chosen full liposuction as a part of your cosmetic treatment plan, a mini tummy tuck can be an ideal addition to ensure you can enjoy a flat stomach that further enhances your silhouette.

Scheduling a tummy tuck consultation in El Paso with Dr. Pate helps our team determine which treatments are best matched to your needs. During this appointment, we can assess areas of concern and customize a treatment plan to correct issues related to stubborn fat in the abdomen, muscle damage, and loose, deflated skin.
