Sometimes, despite our best attempts at diet and exercise, we struggle to firm up our abdomen. And women who have had children understand that pregnancy introduces its own set of challenges to that elusive, flat tummy. In cases like these, a tummy tuck can help restore your body to a more youthful, toned appearance.
The best way to find out whether a tummy tuck is right for you is to speak with Dr. Roberta Gartside in person. She'll evaluate your body type and aesthetic goals in order to recommend the right treatment plan for your unique needs.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure used to restore your midsection to a more youthful, toned appearance. Patients who struggle with excess fat or skin in the abdomen, despite maintaining a healthy regimen of diet and exercise, choose abdominoplasty to achieve a slimmer, smoother look.
At New Image Plastic Surgery Associates, we’re pleased to offer two kinds of tummy tuck procedures. Our mini tummy tuck is perfect for a patient whose area of concern is mainly the lower abdomen. Women who have undergone a Cesarean section or abdominal hysterectomy often choose the mini tummy tuck to restore their bodies to a pre-surgical appearance.
Our full tummy tuck addresses areas throughout the abdomen and is not limited to the area below the belly button. This procedure is popular among women who plan not to have more children or individuals who have loose skin following weight loss. Dr. Gartside often performs a full tummy tuck as part of a mommy makeover to restore a pre-pregnancy figure.
Many patients choose to include liposuction as part of their tummy tuck procedure for enhanced results.
