Tummy Tuck - Sanchez Plastic Surgery - Baton Rouge, LA

Tummy Tuck by Dr. Erick Sanchez at Sanchez Plastic Surgery in Baton Rouge, LA.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is when you remove the lower skin from the lower part of the abdomen. The traditional tummy tuck was, "Let's just lop off this skin. I had a couple babies, I lost some weight. Let's take it off." A tummy tuck is a lot more than that. A tummy tuck has to contour, depending on if a patient is ... Whatever background they're coming from. They want hourglass, they want shaping, they want combining liposuction. 

The scar on the tummy tuck, that's the trade-off, as I talk about, with every patient. The scar has to be in the right place. So the tummy tuck only makes sense if we're removing excess skin, re-contouring the entire abdominal wall, giving the patient shape that they want, and then giving them also, lastly, a normal looking belly button. 

So that's Tummy Tuck 101. Every patient that I see is going to be different, but if you're interested in more, give us a call. Come talk to me. I'll let you know if you're a good candidate.
