Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Plastic Surgery in Valdosta, South Georgia and North Central Florida

Exercise and attention to diet aren’t always enough to achieve a stomach that shows your best efforts. Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) plastic surgery performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sonya J. Merriman, is designed to firm and smooth the abdomen, tighten the abdominal muscles and remove or improve the appearance of stretch marks. At her plastic surgery center in Valdosta, Georgia, tummy tuck plastic surgery with Dr. Merriman also removes excess fat and skin from the stomach.

Men or women who have excess skin and fat concentrating in the abdomen, but are otherwise of relatively normal weight are the best candidates for abdominoplasty. With Dr. Merriman, tummy tuck plastic surgery can be an ideal cosmetic surgery procedure for anyone desiring a more fit appearance. Whether you are a post-pregnancy mom, a man with a tendency to develop a “spare tire,” or a post weight-loss woman or man, tummy tuck plastic surgery could be an excellent choice for you.

Some patients are good candidates for a mini-abdominoplasty which uses tiny incisions to create a flatter, tighter abdominal profile. The confidence you gain from your new appearance can inspire you to maintain a fit physique, and commit or re-commit yourself to pursuing good overall health.

Patients in the Plantation Trace and South Georgia area often choose tummy tuck plastic surgery to address some of the following challenges:

  • Abdominal fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
  • Excess abdominal skin following weight loss
  • Desire for a more youthful abdominal profile
  • Stretched stomach muscles as a result of pregnancy
  • Stretch marks
  • Desire to look younger and more fit
