Flatten and contour your way to confidence
Get a firmer and flatter tummy!
The abdomen is a part of the body that is easily subject to changes as we age. Pregnancies, sudden weight fluctuations or decreased muscle tone can all change the appearance of the tummy and waistline. To address common concerns of excess skin, fat accumulation and the appearance of stretch marks, at W Plastic Surgery, we offer Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck. With this surgery, Dr. Sarah and Vanessa Wong can help restore a toned belly that gives back a youthful harmony to the silhouette.

Could this procedure be
right for you?

A W Plastic Surgery consultation is the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for an Abdominoplasty. This surgery is ideal if you have sagging, stretched skin and excess tissue around the abdomen, despite healthy eating and exercise efforts. Often abdominoplasty patients wish to restore a firmer-looking appearance to reverse the effects of pregnancy or after a significant amount of weight loss. An abdominoplasty can also be performed for patients who wish to improve scars or bulges resulting from a hysterectomy or cesarian.

How is this procedure performed?

During your Abdominoplasty, Dr. Sarah and Vanessa Wong will make an incision above the pubic area that extends out towards the hips. The length of your incision will significantly depend on the location and how much excess skin you have.

The abdominal skin is lifted from the abdominal wall as far as the rib cage. Excess skin and fat are removed while the skin of the upper abdomen is brought down and draped tightly to create a firmer appearance. Suppose the patient experiences weakening or separation of the abdominal muscles (diastases recti). In that case, muscle plication (a running stitch) will secure the muscles back towards the body’s midline.

Throughout 20+ years in aesthetic plastic surgery, Dr. Sarah and Dr. Vanessa Wong have always been passionate about using their skills to impart a lasting, positive impact on the lives of their patients. With a feminine vision and understanding, they bring unique compassion and empathy to every procedure they perform.


When do you see the results?

Results from your abdominoplasty can be seen immediately, with final results becoming more evident after 3-4 months. Patients can expect to see a tighter, flatter abdominal profile. Previous bulges or excess skin will be removed to refine your silhouette and restore your most youthful and natural shape. After surgery, patients have an uplifted sense of confidence and feel happier with their appearance.
