What is an Abdominoplasty?
An abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles to create an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us work hard to attain through exercise and weight control. However, sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.
Good Candidates for Abdominoplasty
Choosing to undergo tummy tuck surgery is a highly personal decision. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
Ideal candidates for the procedure are men and women who are struggling to get rid of stubborn fat and loose skin in their abdominal region. Patients whose concerns are concentrated in the lower abdomen may be candidates for a mini tummy tuck. Dr. Wotowic will assess your bodily contours and discuss your medical history to determine the best treatment approach for you.
Although the results of an abdominoplasty procedure are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies may be advised to postpone abdominoplasty surgery.
Dr. Wotowic has performed two procedures for me – an abdominoplasty in 2004 and a lateral thigh lift in 2017. These procedures were for the purpose of correcting damage to my body from a serious illness. I never believed that I could look “normal” again. However, if you were to see the before and after photos, you would hardly believe the improvement. He is incredibly skilled and can give you a realistic appraisal of what can and should be done, and what kind of result can be expected. While he did describe several procedures that would be helpful, never did he pressure me into any of them. He simply explained them as options and allowed me to decide. I was happy with the outcome of both procedures and feel that the corrections have helped me heal both inside and out. He also worked with me on fees.
It is impossible to critique Dr. Wotowic without acknowledging his infectious positivity. He gives a great pep talk! It’s surprising that a plastic surgeon will preach so much about loving and accepting yourself, warts and all, but that is his outlook. He was very supportive and encouraging to me, even when I was at the nadir, emotionally. I will never forget his sincere kindness.
I would be remiss if I failed to mention his excellent staff. Mary was there for both of my procedures and helped me wade through the insurance jungle. Marcie was also wonderful with the nursing aspects. The receptionist is also lovely. They are a tight knit team.
I did recommend Dr. Wotowic to a friend, who likewise had an excellent experience. I will continue to recommend Dr. Wotowic to friends who are considering a cosmetic or corrective procedure.
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
