Say Goodbye to Your Muffin Top with a Better Tummy Tuck
If excess fat and loose skin on your stomach have you feeling self-conscious, it may be time for a tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, can remove excess fat and skin from your abdomen. Incisions pull skin tighter to flatten your stomach and restore a firmer figure.
But at Michigan Plastic Surgery, we go beyond a basic tummy tuck.
We perfected a revolutionary technique called CombiTuck.
CombiTuck combines liposuction with tummy tuck for a faster, more defined result.
Instead of just cutting away excess skin, we first remove excess fat deposits with liposuction.
This allows for even more fat removal and better abdominal contours after skin tightening.
You get all the benefits of a tummy tuck — less skin, firmer muscles — plus enhanced curves and definition.
- Shorter procedures
- Less scarring
- Faster recovery
- A sculpted, contoured midsection
Schedule a consultation or call (866-941-5192) to see if CombiTuck is right for you.
Our team of experts will create a customized treatment plan to banish your muffin top for good.
What to Expect from Your CombiTuck Procedure
CombiTuck is an advanced form of body contouring that combines liposuction with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) for enhanced results. By removing excess fat deposits before skin tightening, CombiTuck can provide shorter procedures, reduced swelling and faster recovery times.
During your consultation, we will perform a physical exam and discuss your goals, health history and lifestyle factors. If you are a good candidate, we will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your desired results and surgical risks.
On the day of surgery, you will receive general anesthesia for comfort and safety during the procedure. We will make small incisions for liposuction of the abdomen, flanks and love handles. Fat cells will be dislodged and suctioned out for targeted fat reduction.
Next, elliptical incisions will be made above and below your belly button. Your weakened abdominal muscles and connective tissue will be tightened with sutures to improve both structure and appearance. Excess skin will be removed and your belly button repositioned. Drain tubes may be inserted and stitches used to close incisions.
After surgery, we will provide thorough post-operative care instructions including a compression garment, diet modifications and limited exercise to aid your recovery. Pain medication and antibiotics may be prescribed to manage discomfort and reduce the risk of infection.
How invasive is CombiTuck?
CombiTuck is a surgical procedure that requires general anesthesia. However, since it combines two well-established procedures – liposuction and tummy tuck – there are no additional risks compared to the procedures separately. Our board-certified cosmetic surgeons are experienced in performing CombiTuck to minimize invasiveness and downtime.
Can it improve after weight loss?
Yes! CombiTuck can help address loose skin and uneven contours that often remain after major weight loss. By muscle tightening, removing excess skin and improving connective tissue, CombiTuck can significantly improve the appearance of the midsection for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and their skin has lost elasticity.
What results can I expect?
Patient satisfaction is stellar with the results of CombiTuck, reporting a flatter stomach, more sculpted contours, improved muscle tone and an enhanced body image. The amount of improvement depends on individual factors like skin elasticity, amount of excess fat and skin, and your health and lifestyle in regards to diet and exercise after surgery.
How long is recovery?
While every patient heals at a different rate, typical recovery from CombiTuck takes about 2 to 4 weeks. This includes time spent wearing a compression garment, limited strenuous activity and adjusting to lifestyle changes like a healthier diet and moderate exercise. Our cosmetic surgeons will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and recommendations to support your recovery.
What does it cost?
The cost of CombiTuck depends on several factors including the extent of fat removal and skin resection, the expertise and experience of your cosmetic surgeon, and whether you choose to have liposuction in additional areas beyond the abdomen. Our trained representatives can provide you with pricing information tailored to your desired results during your consultation.
