Custom Tummy Tuck in Charlotte, NC

Dr. Beck tailors each tummy tuck procedure to meet the individual patient’s needs. A surgical tummy tuck may be performed in combination with liposuction to remove excess fat in the waist, flanks, and lower torso.

Mini-Tummy Tuck

A mini-tummy tuck may be recommended for patients with abdominal bulging mainly below the navel. This procedure involves an incision placed discretely in the bikini line and easily hidden with underwear and clothing. It can be performed in approximately one to two hours with minimal scarring and a quicker, easier recovery.

Full Tummy Tuck

A full tummy tuck, recommended for patients with moderate to severe abdominal bulging, is performed under general anesthesia and may take up to five hours. In this procedure, Dr. Beck makes an incision from hip to hip along the pubic hair line, strategically placed to be undetectable in a bikini. Through this incision, he tightens and repairs sagging or separated abdominal muscles, and removes excess fat and skin from the mid and lower areas of the abdomen.

Incisions are skillfully closed with sutures for less visible scarring. After surgery, you may have drains to remove excess fluids and be asked to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling and help the skin adhere to your new flatter, firmer, tighter belly.
