Marietta Tummy Tuck

Woman's tummyBoth men and women struggle with extra weight around their midsection, often finding it difficult to remove completely. It can become even more frustrating as you get older, as the metabolism slows and it becomes more common to gain weight on the abdomen. Even if you lose fat from this region, you can be left with excess skin and tissue that refuses to tighten to its youthful position. Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, can solve this problem and give you a slimmer, fitter appearance with one procedure.

Residents from Marietta and throughout the greater Atlanta area have a tummy tuck specialist they can count on when they need to reduce their midsection. Our team at Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists uses the most advanced techniques available to sculpt and transform excess fat and tissue in the belly region to create a more flattering figure. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones, our double board certified plastic surgeon, has designed the No-Drain, No-Pain Tummy Tuck to combat excess weight and skin in the midsection with exceptional results for our patients.

There are many causes of excess belly fat that is difficult to remove through lifestyle changes alone. One of the most common is pregnancy. Many women struggle to regain their pre-pregnancy midsection, especially after multiple pregnancies. Other issues affect both men and women, such as significant weight gain and then loss. Even when the fat is mostly gone, the skin and muscle in the abdomen may not retract to a flat appearance. Abdominoplasty can remove any leftover fat, plus tighten the abdomen wall and excess skin can be surgically displaced. The result is a flatter, more toned appearance that is desirable for a more attractive shape.

Benefits of No-Drain Tummy Tucks

Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones has spent over twenty years practicing plastic surgery; in addition, he has extensive training and education that not many surgeons in his field can boast. He studied directly under Dr. Yves Illouz, the inventor of liposuction, in Paris, France. He also practiced at famed medical facilities such as John Hopkins and Stanford University. Dr. Jones has not only undergone extensive training in liposuction and other specialized surgical techniques, his innovative nature has helped him improve these techniques to the benefit of his patients, including no-drain tummy tucks and liposuction.

When many plastic surgeons perform liposuction, one of the main components of a tummy tuck, they must place a drain in the surgical site for the recovery period. This drain allows excess fluid to be removed while the liposuction area heals. The accumulated fluid must be emptied a few times a day – the drain can be cumbersome and uncomfortable. It can also cause a larger scar for the patient. Dr. Jones’ specialized liposuction technique reduces fluid buildup, eliminating the need for a drain. This is more comfortable for the patient, improves recovery time and reduces scarring. Plus, fewer complications arise when a surgical drain is not needed.

Dr. Jones also has improved methods for tightening the skin and abdominal muscles during the tummy tuck procedure. He does not use sutures to secure the abdomen wall, which can become uncomfortable down the road. His skills also reduce the scarring and create a more flattering appearance for the stomach. The “no-pain” aspect of his tummy tucks allows for less pain and quicker recovery for patients, enhancing the overall experience of the procedure.
