California Plastic Surgeon reveals new Tummy Tuck Techniques
Among the most important issues for someone considering Tummy Tuck (our detailed report can be found here) as an option to remove belly fat and excess skin is the visible scar that remains after the lower incision that is necessary for a Tummy Tuck to be carried out.
Now Dr. Joseph Cruise, a board certified Plastic surgeon that works in Orange County, Newport Beach announces that he found a solution. Dr. Cruise’s goal is to lower the incision and he follows two innovative techniques to succeed it!
The doctor comments “My patients are excited about the idea of losing unwanted skin and fat, however one of their biggest concerns with surgery is having a visible abdomen scar. I have developed techniques to ensure they are able to wear the clothing they want without worrying about the scar showing,”
The two approaches Dr. Cruise follows are described below:
- He utilizes progression tension sutures that pull the abdominal flap down. This way tension is delivered at numerous points which is different to what happens with traditional Tummy Tuck.
- He focuses on thinning the abs fat as much as possible! Thus it’s much easier for the skin to re-fold farther down!
By utilizing these innovatives approaches Dr Cruise succeeds to lower the incision (even 1 cm lower makes the difference) in order the scar to be hidden by bikinis or low cut pants! We need to notice that also other board certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Ronald Schuster recommend Progression tension sutures
