Tummy tuck before and after pictures are a very important guide for patients trying to find and choose their perfect board-certified surgeon. Patients who undergo a tummy tuck procedure should demonstrate aesthetically pleasing results, which include a low incision line, an “innie” belly button, and a maximally narrowed waistline.
SurgiSculpt surgeons are well regarded for consistently delivering high-quality tummy tuck results.
A low incision line is the first thing to look for in tummy tuck pictures. Many inexperienced surgeons who perform tummy tucks create high incision lines instead of the ideal low incision line.
A high incision line must be avoided, as it creates a visible incision that sticks out of undergarments and bikini bottoms. Another problem with a misplaced, high incision line is the creation of a “step deformity,” which describes a shelf along the pubic region that is deforming in appearance.
The second thing to look for in tummy tuck photographs is an “innie” belly button. Because the procedure involves creating a new belly button, called a “neo umbilicus,” it is imperative that the neo umbilicus be “innie” versus “outie” for an aesthetically pleasing result.
To construct the ideal “innie” belly button during the tummy tuck procedure, SurgiSculpt himself has developed and patented the “umbilicator.”
The umbilicator allows him to achieve an “innie” belly button since it allows for accurate identification of the belly button stalk, which is a necessity for creating the belly button ring that lies in the shadow of the belly button, as opposed to a ring on the outside where it is visible.
The third thing to look for in tummy tuck pictures is a visibly narrower waist. SurgiSculpt’s “TT” procedure results in a narrower abdominal area that is achieved by strategically limiting the dissection of the skin undermining over the belly.
When the undermining is performed widely, a tenting effect results in the effacement of a narrow waistline.
The last thing to look for in the pictures is proper muscle plication to avoid the dreaded “muffin top deformity” seen in many mishandled tummy tuck cases.
For a woman to achieve an aesthetically pleasing silhouette, the upper abdomen should be concave, and the lower abdomen should be slightly convex. This can only be achieved with appropriate gauging of the muscle tightening performed above the belly button in contrast to below the belly button.
