Tummy Tuck in Memphis and Germantown
CombiTuck™ is an innovative technique of performing the traditional “tummy tuck” or abdominoplasty in combination with circumferential liposuction. The improved procedure is more comprehensive than a tummy tuck with longer lasting results and a shorter recovery period. This procedure is ideal for those who have stubborn abdominal fat and loose, excessive skin. Results of the CombiTuck™ procedure are immediate with a quick healing time and high degree of safety.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I need a CombiTuck™ or just liposuction?
For patients that are close to their ideal body weight and have discreet pockets of fatty tissue, liposuction can be the perfect solution. However, if there is any hint of loose skin around the abdominal area, a CombiTuck™ is likely the better choice for you. We will help you determine which is best for you during your initial consultation with our patient care coordinator and one of our surgeons.
Do you offer the traditional tummy tuck?
We no longer perform tummy tuck procedures because the CombiTuck™ requires much less downtime, provides better results and higher patient satisfaction.
How noticeable will my scar be?
One of our many goals when performing a CombiTuck™ is to minimize scarring. We strategically place the incision very low on the abdomen so that it is not visible while wearing a two-piece bikini. The length of the incision is also shorter than that of the traditional tummy tuck. Although we cannot predict how each individual patient will heal, the typical patient’s scar diminishes greatly within one year. We also encourage you to use special bandages that are designed to promote healing.
