What Problems Can Abdominoplasty Address?

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


At Bella Cosmetic Surgery, our first priority is ensuring that our Alexandria-area only patients only undergo procedures that are right for them. When it comes to an abdominoplasty, we will never recommend the procedure if it doesn't fit your unique needs.

The first step in making this determination is listening to you describe your goals and desires. Then, we need to ensure that an abdominoplasty will actually help you achieve these objectives. It sounds basic, but this is often an overlooked point.

An abdominoplasty is a targeted procedure designed to address specific cosmetic concerns. An ideal candidate for an abdominoplasty is looking to be rid of:

  • Loose, stretched abdominal muscles
  • Stretch marks
  • Excess skin in the abdominal region
  • Excess fatty tissue
  • An abdominal protrusion

It's important to remember that the abdominoplasty is not a weight loss procedure. The best candidates are those who are in good overall shape and at or near their ideal bodyweight, but who simply cannot eliminate these issues through diet and exercise.

If you live in the Alexandria, Virginia and you think an abdominoplasty might be right for you, please call Bella Cosmetic Surgery at 301-567-6767 or contact us online for a consultation
