Tummy Tuck Procedures

We perform three types of tummy tuck surgeries at Grossman Plastic Surgery, including:

  • Standard/classic abdominoplasty:  An incision is made from hip to hip in the bikini-line area, and a second incision is made around the belly button. The skin and fat is lifted from the underlying muscles which are then tightened. Excess skin is then removed and the incisions are closed.
  • Modified classic abdominoplasty:  When there is not enough loose skin in the belly button and pubic region, a modified incision is used. This process is more extensive and produces a longer scar.
  • Mini-abdominoplasty:  When the desired improvement is in a small area between the belly button and pubic region, a smaller incision can be used. This is a less-invasive procedure that only tightens the lower half of the abdominal muscles.

To find out if you are a candidate for any of our tummy tuck procedures in Denver, please contact Grossman Plastic Surgery by calling (866) 221-9665 today.
