A tummy tuck, technical name abdominoplasty, can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen, increasing comfort, range of movement and confidence levels by restoring abdominal tone. Tummy tuck is the most effective procedure in body contouring because it allows to reshape different anatomical planes. This includes muscle and the flank tightening, reducing fat volume and finally, eliminating excess skin, creating a “gown effect” possibly with stretch marks.
Tummy tuck can be selected to address any of the above problems individually or all at once. It is performed under general anaesthesia and requires very careful assessment as a major surgical procedure. Dr Cotrufo performs abdominoplasty under general anaesthesia. His patients are usually invited to stay in hospital for one or two nights for safety and comfort. Technical refinements such as deep-fascia suturing and use of dissolvable stitches allow him to achieve excellent results with very fine scars over the groin and around the “new belly button”. There are several techniques to perform a Tummy Tuck and Dr Cotrufo will advise you on the safest and best procedure to achieve your ideal shape.
Why choose abdominoplasty?
If your abdomen has been affected by a cycle of weight gain and loss, impacted by pregnancy, ageing or loss of skin laxity, abdominoplasty surgery (tummy tuck) may be an option.
A tummy tuck reduces the appearance of your abdomen through removal of excess skin and fat. The possibility to tighten the anterior abdominal muscles (recti abdominis muscles) and repair divarication of the muscles typically after multiple pregnancies makes the tummy tuck one of the most common procedures for women. We estimate that Dr Cotrufo performed 90% of his tummy tuck procedures on female patients after one or multiple pregnancies, while the remaining 10% comes following massive weight loss on both sexes. Our patients often find that Dr Cotrufo’s body contouring procedure helps them to feel more content, giving them the self-confidence to wear the clothes they always wanted to wear. The most amazing consequence of body contouring surgery is that patients feel so comfortable again to start taking good care of themselves and reach a much better level of fitness by exercising and dieting.
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure used on the body and face to remove excess fat that does not respond well to diet and exercise; liposuction helps to contour the body and can boost self-confidence. Dr Cotrufo performs all different types of Liposuction including VASER, Laser, Traditional and Power-assisted procedures. Dr Cotrufo has only 5 stars reviews on both Google and RealSelf, thanks to the amazing results he achieves with his body sculpting. Dr Cotrufo has more than 12 years experience in mastering the liposuction technique and will certainly provide you with the best possible advice for your body contouring surgery.
Why choose liposuction?
Even small areas of stubborn fat that do not respond to traditional weight loss or exercise can change the profile of your body and face. Suction-assisted lipectomy allows you to target these specific areas, enhancing the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, cheek or neck. Ultimately liposuction aims to restore a more masculine or feminine profile. In selected cases, Dr Cotrufo recommends using the VASER liposuction to perform a high-definition or mid-definition body contouring of abdominal wall, arms or buttock areas.
VASER liposuction is a cutting-edge liposuction technique that enables fat deposits to be precisely targeted. Using ultrasound waves, this revolutionary fat removal treatment can offer incredible body contouring results with less downtime and less pain compared to other traditional liposuction treatments.
The average waistline reduction after a single treatment was about 1 inch (2.5 cm), which is typically equal to one dress or pant size. Full results are usually seen in 8 to 12 weeks, though individual results will vary.
Dr Cotrufo uses this state-of-the-art technology to produce eye-catching results in just one procedure. The procedure is tissue-selective, targeting fat while protecting other tissues from damage.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary.
Why choose Vaser Lipo?
If you’ve struggled with weight gain, and exercise and diet just haven't given you the dramatic transformation you’d like, VASER lipo can help. It is a suitable fat removal treatment for both men and women and is powerful enough to eliminate substantial areas of fat but gentle enough to treat delicate areas such as the neck and arms.
