What is a Tummy Tuck?
The Tummy Tuck is a cosmetic surgery that consists in the removal of excess of skin of the abdominal area. Additionally, a fat subtraction is made through LipoVaser®, which, thanks to its ultrasound technology, removes all the fatty tissues while protecting the rest of tissues. This fat is then injected to the buttocks.
Who is the Ideal Patient?
The Tummy Tuck is ideal for patients that have gone through a drastic weight loss, resulting in abdominal flaccidness and excess of skin. In some cases, patients that haven’t gone through a drastic weight loss can be prospects for this procedure if they have enough skin and fat to be removed.
How is it performed?

The The Fat subtraction is made with LipoVaser® technology which, thanks to its ultrasound system, removes all the fatty tissues while protecting the rest of tissues.
