Many people are unhappy with the way their body looks, whether it’s due to their natural shape or the result of processes like aging and pregnancy.
Sometimes, no matter how well you eat or how much you exercise, you just can’t get your body to look the way you want. Luckily, Dr. Michael Workman and his team offer a variety of body contouring procedures aimed at shaping your body to help you achieve your desired look.
Abdominoplasty often referred to as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure where excess fat and tissue is removed from the abdomen. As a longtime Portland cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Workman has extensive experience with the tummy tuck procedure and excels at tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall in addition to removing excess tissue and fat, improving the appearance of the tummy.
The surgery is performed while you are asleep under general anesthesia. An incision is made beneath the belly button and extends from hip to hip. Through this incision, Dr. Workman tightens the muscles with sutures, helping you achieve a firm, flat belly after your tummy tuck. Once the muscles are tightened, the excess tissue and fat can be removed via liposuction before the incision is closed.
