Minimally Invasive Tummy Tuck

Posted: July 10, 2014

On a recent episode of The Doctors, the story of Elizabeth, a new mom looking to regain her pre-baby body, was shared with viewers. Elizabeth expressed her frustrations, specifically that her abdomen would not respond to healthy diet and exercise like the rest of her body. Because this, Elizabeth suffered from low self-confidence, eventually opting for a minimally invasive alternative to a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) that combined this procedure with liposuction.

Here at Aguirre Specialty Care in Denver, CO, Dr. Oscar A. Aguirre frequently performs this same procedure for mothers seeking slimmer, trimmer shapes. Called a “hybrid tummy tuck” on The Doctors, we refer to this procedure as “ASC abdominoplasty.” Unlike traditional tummy tucks, which pose very lengthy downtime and leave a scar stretching from hip to hip, Dr. Aguirre is able to reduce downtime as well as scarring with ASC abdominoplasty, also sometimes called a “mini tummy tuck.”

“The ASC abdominoplasty is an excellent choice for mothers who are frustrated with excess skin and fat that does not respond to diet and exercise,” says Denver cosmetic surgeon and urogynecologist, Dr. Aguirre. “With this less invasive technique, I am able to reduce this unwanted bulge with a smaller incision and, by combining this body contouring procedure with VASER® liposuction, I cut back on downtime while delivering enhanced fat reduction.”

The ASC abdominoplasty is extremely popular as a part of a REAL Mommy Makeover, a customized body-contouring program that can restore your pre-baby body and confidence all with just one recovery. In addition to a tummy tuck in Denver, Dr. Aguirre frequently performs minimally invasive VASER® liposuction, laser cellulite reduction (VASER® Smooth), labiaplasty, non-surgical vaginal tightening and more.
