Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) in Pittsburgh PA

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) in Pittsburgh PA

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a transformative surgical procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the abdominal region. Dr. Theodore Lazzaro at Aestique Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh, PA, offers this procedure to individuals seeking a flatter, more toned abdomen. Despite rigorous exercise and strict dietary habits, many find it challenging to eliminate stubborn fat deposits or sagging skin in the abdominal area, often resulting from pregnancy, heredity, or significant weight fluctuations. During an abdominoplasty, Dr. Lazzaro meticulously removes middle and lower abdominal excess skin and fat while tightening the underlying muscles. This procedure can significantly diminish the appearance of a protruding abdomen, sculpting a more refined and attractive midsection. For those with specific aesthetic goals, abdominoplasty can be combined with liposuction or other procedures to achieve optimal results.

Benefits of Abdominoplasty:

  • Flatter, toned abdomen.
  • Excess skin and fat removal.
  • Tighter abdominal muscles.
  • Reduced protruding abdomen.
  • Improved body contour.
  • Elevated self-confidence.
  • Combined procedural options.
  • Renowned surgeon expertise.
  • Tailored personal treatment.
  • Advanced facilities and care.


Ideal candidates are men and women in good shape and near their normal weight but are concerned about excess fat or loose skin in the abdominal area. Women should ideally complete their childbearing to achieve lasting results.
While some results are noticeable immediately after the procedure, the final outcome becomes more evident as swelling subsides and the body heals, typically over several weeks to months.
With a healthy lifestyle, the results of an abdominoplasty can be long-lasting. However, significant weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or aging can impact the longevity of the results.
Yes, patients should expect some swelling, pain, and discomfort post-surgery. Recovery time varies, but many patients can resume normal activities within six weeks.
Before the procedure, patients should discuss their expectations with Dr. Lazzaro, disclose health status, and follow pre-surgery guidelines, including dietary and medication instructions. Post-surgery, patients should follow care instructions, wear compression garments, and attend follow-up appointments.
During abdominoplasty, an incision is made to separate the skin from the abdominal wall, allowing for muscle tightening and skin removal. The navel is repositioned, and the area is sutured. Afterward, drainage tubes may be used, and a compression garment is applied.
