Tummy Tuck in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, FLWe all strive for a flat and well-toned abdomen through diet and exercise. Unfortunately, traditional methods cannot achieve our ideal goals. If you have excess skin or fat on your abdomen that makes it impossible to get that toned figure, a tummy tuck by Dr. Brueck may be right for you! After your tummy tuck, you will enjoy a flatter, firmer abdomen that complements the rest of your body type and weight.
What is a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck in Fort Myers, also known as an abdominoplasty, involves removing fat and skin for a tighter abdominal appearance. In some cases where the abdomen muscles are weakened or separated, Dr. Brueck will restore these muscles for a tighter, flatter appearance. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Brueck may recommend liposuction to perfect your new body contours.
Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck in Fort Myers?
