About Abdominoplasty Surgery
For adult individuals, sagging skin and unwanted fat within the abdomen, no matter how hard they attempt to reduce it, can be frustrating and challenging. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging are the primary reasons why someone may not be able to regain a tighter and slimmer tummy. However, abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that reshapes the stomach area producing amazing results for patients. Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Nikko, performs abdominoplasty at the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center in Houston, TX that is tailored on the individual's cosmetic goals and needs. This popular surgery allows individuals the chance to have a redefined physique and renewed confidence.
Abdominoplasty can be successful for both women and men. If you battle sagging skin as well as unwanted fat in the abdominal region, this cosmetic surgery can help restore a tighter and slimmer physique. Before undergoing this treatment, we suggest that patients are at a stable weight. Abdominoplasty is not a procedure to help you lose weight, it addresses loose skin. Liposuction is usually used during surgery to remove fat. It is important to note if your tummy section has healthy skin tautness, but you are still unhappy with the appearance of your midsection even after you have worked to lose weight, you may be a better candidate for liposuction. If you are a woman contemplating a tummy tuck, you should be past pregnancy to ensure the surgical outcome is not affected.
"I've been coming to Dr. Nikko for over 3 years for Botox and I can say that Crystal does a fantastic job! A very natural look! I've been to other places and they don't get what I want! If you don't want to look frozen, but instead look natural, Dr. Nikko's office is the place! I recommend to all!"- Z.A. / Yelp / Aug 10, 2017
"Let me start by saying I don't post reviews often but I knew I wanted to post the review of my experience with Dr. Nikko and his staff as soon as possible now that I have gone through the entire process of body contouring and all the follow ups and seen the final results. I know when I was doing my research on doctors I relied a lot on reviews and wanted to give my honest opinion and review of my experience. My experience was truly fabulous all around from the initial consultation to my follow up phone calls to the procedure itself and the post op consultations. Stephanie was my go-to contact and she was just so sweet and informative and I knew I was in good hands from the beginning. Mark took great care of me and ensured my comfort during and immediately after the procedure. Dr. Nikko truly has an eye for perfection and I couldn't be happier with my results. I feel that there are so many options in Houston for these procedures and even though I did my due diligence in research, when it comes to body contouring its also an art in my opinion and the doctor has to have a good eye for shape and symmetry. I have curves in all the right places that I never dreamed I could have and Dr. Nikko made it possible. He could see the future and the potential for my shape far beyond what I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend Dr. Nikko for any body contouring procedures you might be thinking about...life's too short...get the body you want and live your best life :) !!! I AM!!!"- K.C. / Yelp / Mar 21, 2019
"My experiences with every visit at Dr. Nikko’s are always so pleasant. The staff are very inviting and extremely enthusiastic. My go-to is Crystal for my Botox injections. She has been attentive to my needs and preferences since day one. After having a bad first Botox experience at another location, I was extremely hesitant to try it again. Crystal made me feel so comfortable but most importantly, listened!! I definitely recommend Dr. Nikko and his team."- M.C. / Google / Mar 21, 2019

Body contouring of the abdomen is performed with general anesthesia. There are various techniques to consider when performing this surgery, which is tailored for the patient's specific goals. For starters, the incision length is chosen based on the amount of skin that should be removed. Some patients with extensive sagging skin may require a full tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck places the incision from hipbone to hipbone just above the pubic region. Other patients with minimal skin looseness, but are still bothered by the look of their abdomen, may be better suited for a mini tummy tuck. These individuals will still benefit from skin tightening, but will simply have a smaller scar. During a tummy tuck, regardless of the method used, will involve the removal of sagging skin, as well as fat removal.
What to Expect
Following this procedure, you will be monitored and released wearing a compression garment to help control swelling. Walking upright will be difficult at first, so you should rest for a few days. Standing becomes easier once the tightness subsides and the incision heals. Most patients can resume everyday functions around 2 weeks. Exercise can begin later, closer to 2 months. The abdomen will feel tight and uncomfortable, but after the area heals you will look and feel normal again. It is no doubt you will love your tighter and more youthful appearing physique!
