At Fox Valley Plastic Surgery, the unique “moderate tummy tuck” is performed for patients who want to reshape their abdomens without tightening the muscles, allowing them to take care of their families and return to work sooner.
Oshkosh, Wisconsin (August 2013) – Fox Valley Plastic Surgery performs a custom procedure, the moderate tummy tuck for patients who want to reshape their abdomen without tightening their muscles. As a result, they can recover, take care of their families and return to work sooner than full tummy tuck patients.
“We’re very proud of this custom procedure, and the fact that we are one of a few practices that offers it,” says Dr. David Janssen. “The moderate abdominoplasty is designed for our patients who don’t need the muscle tightened. While this type of tummy tuck does remove excess fat and excess skin, it allows our patients to recover and return to their regular activities, including lifting small children, more quickly.”
Performed under sedation, the moderate tummy tuck is an outpatient procedure. Patients can return home on the same day. In contrast, a full tummy tuck tightens the abdominal muscles as well as removing excess fat and skin during the procedure. A full abdominoplasty takes place at the Renaissance Surgery Center, with a certified anesthesiologist involved.
“During the consultation, we evaluate each patient carefully to determine which type of tummy tuck is most appropriate,” explains Dr. William Doubek. “In some cases, liposuction is the best option for a patient. It all depends on the individual’s specific areas of concern, and we’re known for taking the time to personalize each treatment plan.”
In addition to the full tummy tuck and moderate tummy tuck, Fox Valley Plastic Surgery also offers a mini tummy tuck. This procedure improves the appearance of the lower abdominal area, reducing excess fat and loose, stretched skin. Typically an outpatient procedure, the mini-tummy tuck is performed under local anesthesia.
“Fox Valley Plastic Surgery seeks to have many different options for our patients, so that we can work with them to make sure we’re providing them with the best possible aesthetic solution for their needs,” Dr. Janssen adds. “For example, in additional to traditional liposuction, we offer laser lipo for Wisconsin area patients. We also have a wide range of breast enhancement and facial procedures, as well as combined procedures such as Mommy Makeovers.”
