Clients at The Carlotti Center love tummy tucks because of the dramatic change in their appearance. They routinely tell us that they love losing the heaviness, loose skin, stretch marks, and fat from their lower abdomen. Clothes fit better and patients feel more comfortable wearing certain dresses, low cut jeans, and swimsuits.
A tummy tuck is also known as an abdominoplasty. It is a very common and safe procedure. During a tummy tuck, excess skin and fat is removed from the abdominal wall. The remaining tissue and muscle of the wall is then tightened. The overall effect is a smoother, tighter stomach. Abdominoplasty is beneficial for any patient who has an over-hanging, protruding stomach. By far, the most common patients are women who have given birth and have lost the body shape they once had. In many post-partum scenarios, it can be difficult for a woman to regain her pre-pregnancy shape. Excess fat develops, and the skin of the stomach loses its natural elasticity.
At The Carlotti Center, we are committed to helping you achieve your personal goals in abdominal rejuvenation. We customize each surgery to ensure client safety and to help you return to your lifestyle and activities of daily living as soon as possible.
The clientele of The Carlotti Center are seeking natural results (i.e., “this is me, not plastic surgery”). The Drs. Carlotti practice this type of surgery with a patient-focused style rather that a paternalistic (“doctor knows best”) style. This means that they will spend a considerable amount of time with their patients and carefully listen to the desires of the patient. Since 45% of the scope of their practice in body cosmetic surgery is the revision (re-operation) of the less than ideal outcome of other surgeons, they focus on achieving the realistic goals of their patient’s the first time around. If for example, a patient states that she wants to achieve a small C cup from breast augmentation, they will provide a small C cup result. Many cosmetic surgeons simply don’t listen and err too large.
This is the true advantage of a Male and Female Perspective provided within our practice. As a unique team, we offer private consultations with either Dr. Albert Carlotti or Dr. Michelle Carlotti and you the patient can choose whomever you wish to meet with to discuss your treatment goals. During the procedure itself, both cosmetic surgeons are present to take the best of care of you. Four trained hands and eyes are critical of your result before you leave the operating room. As the Drs. Carlotti will promise you. “Together we make each other better.”
