For some people there is just no getting around genetics. All the dieting, Friday night fish fry fasting and crunches in the world will not remove the stubborn layer of fat in the lower abdomen. For other people, there is an additional hurdle to deal with after weight loss — sagging skin that will not rebound. And for many women, there is 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. At Fox Valley Plastic Surgery in Oshkosh and Appleton, our board-certified plastic surgeons perform tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery for people from Green Bay to Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and beyond, to improve the appearance of the lower abdominal area, reducing excess fat and loose, stretched skin.

Build Muscle with EmsculptTo learn more about tummy tuck procedures at Fox Valley Plastic Surgery, request a consultation using our online form or contact us at (920) 233-1540. The non-refundable $100 cosmetic consultation fee can be applied towards the cost of the procedure. Our tummy tuck patients, who visit from Neenah, Sheboygan, and other surrounding communities, find that these procedures can be a lot easier and more affordable than they would think.

Best Candidates

Candidates for an abdominoplasty must be healthy, and have a reasonable BMI. As odd as it sounds, abdominoplasty candidates need to lose excess weight before an operation is feasible. Ideal candidates are:

  • Men and women, who are in relatively good shape, but despite all the dieting and exercise are troubled with excess skin and fatty tissue.
  • Women who, through pregnancies, have stretched skin and abdominal muscles beyond self-repairing.
  • Major weight loss patients with large amounts of excess skin that have loss of skin elasticity.

It is best to lose weight prior to the procedure to maximize the results. Women who plan on future pregnancies should wait due to the potential muscle tightening.

Types of Abdominoplasties

Unlike other procedures in which there are only a few ways to perform a surgery, an abdominoplasty has many variations to address each patient’s individual needs.

Full (or Formal) Abdominoplasty
Removes fat and excess skin, and tightens muscles all in one procedure.

Moderate Abdominoplasty
Removes fat and excess skin without tightening the muscles.

Mini Abdominoplasty
Removes excess skin from below the naval only.

Extended Abdominoplasty
An extension of a full abdominoplasty, the incision extends beyond the hips.

Reverse Abdominoplasty

Excision of the upper abdomen leaving an incision along the breast fold.

Fleur de Lis Abdominoplasty
Removes excess skin from the lower abdomen by pulling it towards the midline and removing excess skin from lower abdomen. The result leaves an upside down T incision.

Preparing for Surgery

  • If you are planning on losing weight, do so before an abdominoplasty to give you the best result.
  • Smoking must be stopped one month prior to surgery.
  • All aspirin and blood thinners must be stopped 10 days prior.

Why have your operation at the Theda Clark Surgery CenteryPreparing for surgery with a clear, complex-carb rich beverage will keep you strong and enhance your recovery. Drinking ClearFast PreOp prior to your medical procedure is a safe way to speed up recovery time, nourish your body, and reduce post-operative nausea and vomiting. It is available at Hometown Pharmacy on N. Sawyer Street, Oshkosh at $8 a bottle. The recommended dosage is one bottle the night before your surgery once you are in the fasting window, and a second bottle two hours before surgery. Consult with your anesthetist before taking the beverage. Afternoon surgery patients are encouraged to take this beverage.

Smokers are always at high risk for health troubles.Smokers are always at high risk for health troubles, but particularly so during and after surgery. Smokers face longer healing times, blood clots, wounds that break open, and greater risk of infection. For these reasons, FVPS requires that smoking cease one month before and one month after for tummy tuck surgeries, which are adversely effected by the decrease in blood flow caused by nicotine. Read our comprehensive explanation of how smoking impacts healing.

FVPS will notify patients if they are affected by this policy. At the pre-operative appointment which normally occurs two days before surgery, patients must take a cotinine test, which detects the presence of nicotine. Test results are immediately available with this quick blood test. If the test is positive, then surgery will be cancelled and the patient will be charged a cancellation fee in accordance with our Financial Policy, which is included in patient paperwork. Smokers, who cannot quit smoking, should not schedule a surgery.

Potential Risks

No surgery should ever be taken lightly. Some potential risks of surgery are:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Blood clots
  • Poor wound healing
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Asymmetry
  • Recurrent looseness of skin

At your personal consultation for an abdominoplasty, your provider will review all the risks of the procedures, and will address any concerns which you may have regarding the safety of the procedure. Smoking definitively increases the risk of having a complication after surgery. All smokers must stop smoking one to two months prior to surgery, and one month after surgery to insure proper healing and an optimal outcome.


Oblique Left before & afterAn individual consultation is the first step towards perfecting your personal renaissance. Many patients are not aware of the amount of correction that they need, in order to reach their goal of a slimmer abdomen. Some patients, who feel that they are a candidate for a moderate abdominoplasty, may find out that they really need a full abdominoplasty. Others can get away with just a mini abdominoplasty. Finally, some patients do not need any surgery at all. FVPS offers other minimally invasive procedures such as Coolsculpting which can accomplish the same goals for some patients.

Questions? Request a Consultation.Meeting with either Dr. David Janssen or Dr. William Doubek, both board-certified plastic surgeons, will give patients an unbiased assessment of their abdomens. During the consultation, an evaluation of the patient’s physical and emotional health will be used to create a personal care plan. Based on the findings of a physical exam, a determination of the best surgical or nonsurgical procedures will be discussed and presented to the patient.
