Tummy tucks are one of the more popular cosmetic surgeries. If you are concerned with excessive sagging of the skin around your stomach, then an abdominoplasty is likely an ideal procedure. Abdominoplasties are offered in a variety of techniques. One of them is called the floating abdominoplasty, which offers additional tightening through a relatively small incision.
A floating abdominoplasty, also known as the FAB technique, is characterized by a smaller incision and tightening of the stomach muscles. This is achieved by temporarily detaching the belly button while the stomach muscles between the sternum and the pubic area are tightened. Liposuction is also available in conjunction with this technique.
Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Troy Andreasen to learn more about what procedure is right for you.
