There are various surgical procedures relating to excess fat and skin removal. An abdominoplasty is one of these procedures, and it can be carried out for you by Dr. Brenman. This is one of the oldest surgical treatments in the cosmetics industry, and it has been shown to yield some very pleasing results. Following an abdominoplasty, most patients feel less self-conscious and happier with the way they look.
What is an Abdominoplasty?
Abdominoplasty is most commonly known as a tummy tuck. It is a surgical treatment that focuses on getting rid of stubborn belly fat, while also repairing the muscles that line the abdominal walls. When someone is pregnant – or undergoes extensive weight loss – they often end up with lots of excess skin and stubborn pockets of stomach fat, along with weakened abdominal muscles. Therefore, a tummy tuck is perfect for targeting these common problems.
A tummy tuck works by making incisions that can be used to remove any excess fatty tissue via liposuction if needed. Dr. Brenman will then tighten any abdominal muscles that used to be overly stretched before closing any incisions. The result is a much smoother and toned stomach area, free from any excess skin or fat.
This surgery can present a handful of benefits for all patients. There are almost too many to list them all, so Dr. Brenman has narrowed things down to his top three benefits of an abdominoplasty:
Show the true signs of weight loss.
There’s nothing worse than spending hours in the gym, eating a healthy diet, losing loads of weight, and not seeing the true results. This is the reality for many people that lose a lot of weight, with stubborn pockets of fat or loose skin covering up their results. An abdominoplasty is beneficial in that it can reveal the true results following a weight loss regime, making you feel far happier.
Improve your self-confidence.
Regardless of whether you’ve recently given birth or lost a lot of weight, you may struggle with self-confidence because of how you look. Your stomach is stretched out, there’s excess tissue hanging, and you don’t want to wear certain clothes anymore. With a tummy tuck, you can regain your self-confidence by improving the appearance of your stomach, making you feel a lot better about yourself. It can be a huge mental boost!
The results of an abdominoplasty can last a lifetime. Once the excess fat and skin have been removed, they won’t return. As long as you continue to follow a healthy lifestyle, you shouldn’t see the results reverse. Consequently, one tummy tuck is all that’s required for the majority of patients.

Am I a Candidate for an Abdominoplasty?
An abdominoplasty is not a form of weight loss surgery and shouldn’t be sought out if you are overweight and unhealthy. It exists to get rid of excess fatty tissue and saggy skin present following extensive weight loss periods – such as after an exercise program or pregnancy. The ideal candidates for this surgical treatment will be healthy individuals within a few pounds of their target weight.
“After losing 87 pounds I decided I would treat myself and get a tummy tuck that I have been wanting for some time. I researched and thought Dr Scot Brenman would be best. Well suffice it to say I am not thrilled with my results. Ultimately my tummy is flatter which was what I wanted but my belly button is 2 inches above the incision line which I hate! He promised lipo which til this day I’m betting he didn’t do! Also his aftercare was thee WORSE! He never followed up with me after the removal of my drains! No way will he receive another one of my hard earned dimes!” *
