Body Contouring Q & A

What kind of abdominal body contouring is right for me?

Since every patient is unique, Dr. Dardano offers several different abdominal body contouring options. 


In liposuction, Dr. Dardano creates small incisions in your abdomen and then suctions excess fat away. Liposuction can be a stand-alone procedure if you have excellent skin elasticity and don’t need skin removal, but it’s often combined with other body contouring procedures like abdominoplasty. You can also get liposuction in your thighs, upper arms, buttocks, or in nearly any area where you have stubborn fat deposits.

Standard abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, has several variations. Dr. Dardano often performs standard abdominoplasty to remove extra skin and fat from the belly area. He also tightens abdominal wall muscles during an abdominoplasty. This surgery can also remove stretch marks lingering from weight loss or pregnancy.

Circumferential abdominoplasty 

Circumferential abdominoplasty is a more extensive abdominoplasty for patients who have lost considerable weight following weight loss surgery. In this surgery, Dr. Dardano creates an incision that goes completely around the waist so he can remove extra skin, fat, and tighten loose muscles.

Dr. Dardano can also perform complex abdominal repairs, like abdominal wall reconstruction following hernia repair, if you need it. He discusses your concerns with you and then performs an exam so he can make tailored recommendations for abdominal body contouring. 

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a group of body contouring procedures that Dr. Dardano performs during one surgery session. Many women have mommy makeovers after they’re done having children.

Most mommy makeovers include one or more of the following. 

  • Abdominoplasty
  • Breast augmentation
  • Liposuction
  • Breast lift

Other body contouring procedures are also an option. Dr. Dardano customizes your mommy makeover for your concerns and needs so you can get your body back. 

What other types of body contouring are available?

Dr. Dardano regularly performs body contouring surgery for the arms and legs. 


Brachioplasty is also called arm lift. In this surgery, Dr. Dardano removes extra skin and fat from the upper arm area to create new, tighter arms. Brachioplasty can correct the “bat wings” that plague many women as they age. Dr. Dardano might combine brachioplasty with liposuction.

Thigh lift

In a thigh lift, Dr. Dardano removes extra skin and fat from your upper legs. A thigh lift can slim and contour both inner and outer thighs, depending on your needs. Dr. Dardano might combine a thigh lift with liposuction.  

You can have two or more types of body contouring at once. For example, many patients opt for circumferential abdominoplasty and thigh lift after their weight loss surgery.

Dr. Dardano is a body contouring specialist. He regularly helps patients achieve the appearance they want and even performs revisional and corrective surgery for patients who had poor results from previous doctors.
