Over my years of practicing plastic surgery here in Denver, I’ve developed a new technique for tummy tuck procedures. The Combined LipoAbdominoplasty Sculpting & Shaping (C.L.A.S.S.) technique is a combination of Brazilian, Italian and American techniques. I’ve also added my own refinements for optimum results.*
The History of Tummy Tucks
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, has always been my favorite operation. I think this is because there is no other procedure that provides such dramatic results, or higher levels of patient satisfaction.* As a surgeon, there is no better reward than seeing a patient who is truly overjoyed with their results. Tummy tucks bring this on more often than other surgeries.*
Traditionally, tummy tucks were performed without including liposuction. Concerns were raised over ongoing blood supply remaining sufficient to overlying skin during the procedure. Potentially, loss of proper circulation could lead to scarring and tissue devastation. However, the final contours of performing tummy tucks without lipo were simply not ideal. A new answer was needed.
A New Approach
Several years ago, Brazilian plastic surgeons modified the traditional abdominoplasty technique through the use of liposuction and a revised approach to excisions and suturing. My C.L.A.S.S procedure combines the Brazilian techniques with some additional steps that allow for the flattening of the abdominal wall and removal of fat cells throughout the abdomen and flanks. Then, just as with a standard tummy tuck, the excess skin is removed. Internal sutures limit the need for surgical drains, a huge benefit to my patients. These internal sutures also reduce tension across the incision area, reducing scarring at the site.*
For locals in Denver, a tummy tuck using the C.L.A.S.S. technique can offer truly outstanding results.* Schedule a consultation today to see how my exclusive C.L.A.S.S. technique can achieve a better tummy tuck.
