A flatter, better-contoured abdomen may be achieved with tummy tuck surgery (“abdominoplasty”), a surgical procedure often performed by Kelly E. Tjelmeland, M.D., F.A.C.S. at Meridian Plastic Surgery Center in Austin. Patients throughout Texas seek the expertise of our tummy tuck surgeon in order to get rid of excess, sagging skin of the mid-section.
Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Dr. Tjelmeland is able to help tummy tuck patients in Austin and throughout Texas achieve their body contouring goals.
If you want exceptional tummy tuck results, Dr. Tjelmeland will provide you with the personal care and dedication you deserve at our private ambulatory surgery center.
Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
Typically, tummy tuck operations are performed on women who have stretched-out skin and weakened abdominal muscles due to pregnancy and massive weight loss. For those patients who have minimal sagging skin, Dr. Tjelmeland may offer a mini tummy tuck procedure.
Our Austin tummy tuck patients benefit from the harmonic scalpel, which Dr. Tjelmeland utilizes when performing abdominoplasty.
What will the use of a harmonic scalpel during a tummy tuck procedure offer?
- Less pain, swelling, and bruising
- Quicker recovery time
During your appointment with Dr. Tjelmeland you will have all of your tummy tuck questions answered and gain necessary information to help you make the right decisions. He may also discuss complementary body reshaping procedures, such as liposuction (“lipoplasty”), breast lift surgery (“mastopexy”), and breast augmentation (“augmentation mammaplasty”).
To see the results of tummy tuck surgery, our surgeon features some of his past patient results in the tummy tuck before and after photo gallery.
