A tummy tuck, clinically known as abdominoplasty, is an excellent option for Denver-area patients who want a tighter, firmer, smoother stomach. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Zwiebel tightens loose skin, removes excess fat and sutures stretched abdominal muscles tight, almost like an internal corset. This proven surgical procedure enhances your waistline and restores your abdomen to its beautiful, youthful shape.

Tummy tucks can be thoroughly customized to meet your unique needs and goals. There are several variations of abdominoplasty, each designed to target certain areas of the body or address specific issues. During your consultation, Dr. Zwiebel will detail these options and help you decide on a treatment plan that will give you natural results and an improved sense of confidence.
Tummy Tuck Procedure
Depending on the type of procedure being performed, tummy tuck surgery can last anywhere from 90 minutes to several hours. By following Dr. Zwiebel’s detailed pre and post-operative instructions, you can help reduce both the size and darkness of your scars, and increase the likelihood of a quick and smooth healing process.
The length and number of incisions involved in your tummy tuck will vary, depending on the specific procedure being performed. Scarring is inevitable, but Dr. Zwiebel carefully plans the location of every incision in order to effectively minimize the visibility of your surgical scars.
Dr. Zwiebel uses a drainless approach in his tummy tuck procedure, utilizing internal dissolving stitches between the skin and the muscle. This technique eliminates the need for drains, reduces scarring and improves recovery.
Full Tummy Tuck
If you have excess skin and small amounts of fat on the entire abdomen, a full tummy tuck can be performed. In this procedure, you will have an incision along your bikini line and also around your belly button as it must be moved in order for your abdominal area to look normal.
Mini Tummy Tuck
In a mini tummy tuck, you only have excess skin and small amounts of fat below your navel. Therefore, our doctor will only create an incision in the bikini area and have skin and fat removed from the lower abdominal area.
Am I a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty is not right for everyone. Patients who are in poor health, overweight or intend to have children may need to postpone their procedure until they have slimmed down, shaped up or completed their final pregnancy. The only way to truly know if you are a good tummy tuck candidate is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Zwiebel. He will sit down with you and carefully assess your goals, expectations and physicality before recommending the best options for your needs.
Generally speaking, ideal candidates for a tummy tuck are in good overall health and may have:
- Undergone significant weight loss, resulting in excess skin in the abdominal area.
- Localized areas of abdominal fat that are resistant to exercise.
- Skin or muscle that is loose and stretched by pregnancy.
- A desire to achieve more contoured curves around the waist.
Tummy tucks are often performed as part of a mommy makeover.
