About Dr. Vitolo’s Scar Less Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck – or abdominoplasty – is a surgical procedure aiming to remove skin and fat in excess around the abdominal area. 

Tummy tucks are efficient procedures to help you reposition muscles and skin that might have become over stretched and damaged during pregnancy, aging, or rapid weight loss. During traditional tummy tucks, Dr. Vitolo will make an incision around the navel. and an incision very low in the abdomen (so the woman can wear a bikini), so all the skin and stretchmarks, below the navel can be removed, and allow access to the abdominal muscles, so they can be tightened.

However, if you prefer a minimally invasive procedure to regain your dream body shape, check out Dr. Vitolo’s Scar Less tummy tuck. During this procedure, a small 2-inch incision is performed in the lower abdomen, and Dr. Vitolo will use an endoscope (mini video camera) to tighten the stretched abdominal muscles with minimal scarring! This procedure is best done on women who do not have a large excess of fator abdominal skin.

Unlike the recovery times of a standard tummy tuck, most of Dr. Vitolo’s patients can recover from a Scar Less tummy tuck within a week.

He might recommend you to opt for a Scar Less tummy tuck, a traditional intervention, or a combination of liposuction and tummy tuck

“It has been one year since I made the decision to have liposuction. From beginning to end Dr. Vitolo and his staff were accommodating and professional. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and took the time to answer all of my questions. I was thinking about the procedure for awhile but after talking with Dr. Vitolo, the decision was easy. I’m an active health conscious person, but was unable to get the results I wanted with just diet and exercise. Dr. Vitolo shaped my torso and I’m very happy with results. Recovery was as expected! I think it’s important for people to know that for the best results, you really need to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.” *
