Fat and loose skin in your abdomen can make you feel self-conscious, and it can even cause discomfort as you try to hide or disguise the “flab” on your belly. Help is on the way when you choose a tummy tuck from Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Campanile. Also known as an abdominoplasty, this popular procedure helps our patients achieve a trimmed and toned midsection.
Dr. Campanile customizes every Denver tummy tuck procedure he performs. Some patients have good skin tone but their abdominal muscles are stretched out. Others have fairly strong and tight musculature but want to get rid of excess skin and fat below their belly button that lingers even after they do plenty of crunches and follow through with a healthy meal plan. The bottom line is that Dr. Campanile has the training and experience to deliver on your goal of a tighter tummy. Along with his staff, he’ll take all the time you need to get your questions answered and feel comfortable about taking the next step.

A Tummy Tuck Tailored for You
While many people from all walks of life choose to have a tummy tuck, women with children and people who have lost a significant amount of weight are two of the most popular groups for the procedure. After pregnancy, it is quite common for women to notice that their abdominal muscles and skin have been stretched due to expansion of the abdominal wall. This leads to a belly “pooch” and stretch marks that often make moms cover up and put away their two-piece bathing suits. Dr. Campanile has helped hundreds of moms just like you to feel better about how their stomach looks. In many cases, he is able to greatly reduce the appearance of stretch marks and can even improve or eliminate abdominal scars from prior C-sections.
If you’ve achieved your weight loss goals, Dr. Campanile can help you tone and tighten your stomach with a focused eye on achieving a balanced look for your entire body. For post weight loss patients, he often recommends other surgeries such as thigh and body lifts or liposuction to create a trimmer overall look. He knows which procedures will do the best job of helping you reveal your new, slender self.
After general anesthesia is administered, Dr. Campanile begins the tummy tuck procedure by making an incision below the belly button. Through this incision, he is able to access the loose abdominal muscles, remove excess fat, and tighten skin in the area. Abdominal muscles are surgically tightened, while fat can be removed through excision or with the combination of liposuction. Many patients choose to have liposuction of other body areas such as the hips, arms or back as part of their abdominoplasty procedure. After surgery, our patients should plan on about two weeks of taking it easy, adding back in normal activities as they feel comfortable. Patients may need about a four week break after surgery before engaging in regular exercise and more strenuous activities.
