If your midsection is a source of continual frustration, even after dieting and regular exercise, then a tummy tuck could be your solution. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a common procedure for removing excess skin from around the stomach area to help create a flat and toned abdomen.

For men and women interested in abdominoplasty, Dr. Steven Bloch’s practice, Body by Bloch, can help. Located in Glenview and Highland Park, IL, Dr. Bloch and his team are experts in giving you the aesthetic you desire. Contact us today to book your consultation and get started!

When to Consider Abdominoplasty

A tummy tuck can be suitable for both men and women in the Chicago area. Dr. Steven Bloch has over 30 years of experience in plastic surgery and can create a targeted plan specifically for your body. Excess skin and fat can be present around the abdominal area for many reasons. Weight loss and dieting do not always help to reduce it. This is where abdominoplasty can help.

How It Works

Abdominoplasty can be used to remove loose skin, restoring and emphasizing the naturally slim shape of the abdomen. In some cases, some excess fat may be removed as well. Dr. Block can also tighten the underlying abdominal muscles during the procedure.

It is important to keep in mind that the details and results of each procedure vary from patient to patient based on a variety of factors. During your consultation with Dr. Block, you can learn more information about the exact details of your customized abdominoplasty procedure.

What are the Benefits?

A tummy tuck can be especially helpful for those who have had little luck getting rid of their stubborn excess skin on their own. It can also be used on those who have excess skin post-pregnancy or after a gastric bypass procedure.
