Wisconsin Tummy Tuck
For some people there's just no getting around genetics. All the dieting, Friday night fish fry fasting and crunches in the world won't remove a stubborn layer of fat in the lower abdomen. For other people, there's an additional hurdle to deal with after weight loss — sagging skin that just won't rebound. And for many women, there's just no way to regain a toned tummy once the abdomen has stretched to accommodate childbearing.
If one of these scenarios fits you, don't give up. There are 2 options to improve the look of your midsection — a full tummy tuck or a moderate tummy tuck. Our Milwaukee, Fox Cities, and Green Bay patients find that these procedures can be a lot easier and more affordable than they'd think.
Find out more about getting the flat torso you've been wanting with Drs. David Janssen, William Doubek or Marc Serret. The Wisconsin plastic surgeons are helping women and men from Milwaukee to Madison to Green Bay perfect their personal Renaissance.

Full Tummy Tuck Defined
Unlike traditional liposuction, a full tummy tuck removes fat, tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess skin all in one procedure. The surgeon makes an incision in your lower abdominal wall, separates skin from the tissues underneath, makes the adjustments you've agreed on, and applies sutures and dressings at our practice in Wisconsin. Also called abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck takes a few hours or less to complete, depending on the extent of the surgery.
Moderate Tummy Tuck Defined
A Custom Procedure Available only from Fox Valley Plastic Surgery
Drs. David Janssen, William Doubek and Marc Serret of Fox Valley Plastic Surgery perform a moderate abdominoplasty for people who don't need the muscle tightened, removing fat and excess skin.
A moderate tummy tuck is still a formal abdominoplasty performed under sedation. The muscle is not surgically altered, making it an ideal procedure for people who need to quickly get back to work or caring for children. The moderate tummy tuck was created by Fox Valley Plastic Surgery and is a special procedure that (to the best of our knowledge) is not performed elsewhere.
Fox Valley Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer both the full abdominoplasty and moderate abdominoplasty procedures for patients in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Tummy Tuck Procedures in Wisconsin at Fox Valley Plastic Surgery
Drs. David Janssen, William Doubek, or Marc Serret will help you determine which type of abdominoplasty is ideal for you and the best area for an incision.
If you are a candidate for full abdominoplasty, your procedure will be scheduled at the Theda Clark Surgery Center and you'll be accompanied by a certified anesthetist. You'll have the option of taking advantage of our state-of-the-art pain management package after surgery, which provides medication as well as other treatments to soothe and calm the affected area. The pain management package can help minimize post-surgical discomfort and downtime.
If you are a candidate for a moderate abdominoplasty, your procedure will be scheduled as an "in-office" and you'll go home the same day.
Either a full or a moderate abdominoplasty can be combined with breast augmentation to give Oshkosh, Milwaukee, Madison, Fox Cities, and Green Bay patients a more comprehensive result.
