Considering a Tummy Tuck (That Is, an Abdominoplasty) in 2016?


Did you know that in a modified abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction can be utilized in both the upper and lower abdomen? An abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that not only addresses removal of fat but also the tightening of skin excesses and the repair of muscle separation often associated with pregnancies or weight loss.

During the abdominoplasty surgical consultation in our North Dallas Plastic Surgery office (in Dallas or in Allen, TX) Dr. Todd A. Pollock discusses  your options for this safe and effective surgery.  Dr. Pollock and his father pioneered the No-Drain Tummy Tuck, also known as the Progressive Tension Suture (or PTS) method. This method is now used by different plastic surgeons across the USA. For patients who have a PTS abdominoplasty benefit from significantly reduced surgical complications as well as faster comfort post-surgery.

If you’re thinking of having a tummy tuck procedure in 2016, check out our website at North Dallas Plastic Surgery: ». Then contact our NDPS office » (or call 214.363.2575) when you’re ready to learn more from our staff and Dr. Pollock.

In Dallas, a ‘Mommy Makeover’ is Still Real Surgery

'Dallas Mommy Makeover Surgery' is Real Surgery

We’ve noted how the name “mommy makeover” is not some nomenclature we created – it was done to market the set of surgeries that some women have to ‘turn back the clock’ once they are finished having children.

While having a child or many children is greatly rewarding, it can take a toll on the mother’s bodies. The most common combination of procedures characterized as “mommy makeovers” are breast surgery and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). The breast surgery might be a breast augmentation (adding breast implants) or a breast lift. These are certainly serious surgeries.

Read how Dr. Todd A. Pollock at North Dallas Plastic Surgery (NDPS) says about using terms like “makeover” which may seem to trivialize a combination of major surgical procedures: ».

Call us – 214.363.2575 – to set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Pollock to discuss what would be the right choices for you. He’s completed many mommy makeovers in the Dallas and Allen area and can answer to your questions.

A Mommy Makeover in Dallas, Texas – Is it Right for You?

Dallas, Texas, Mommy Makeover

Having children is a wonderful experience; however, sometimes later on a woman realizes how pregnancy and nursing can cause an adverse impact on their body.

A “mommy makeover” started as a marketing term and has since become firmly established in the media and popular language. While we at North Dallas Plastic Surgery (NDPS) did not originate the term “mommy makeover” we recognize and agree with the concept how undesirable changes and perceived deformity after pregnancy are inevitable and can be distressing.

Patients should consider many factors in the decision about having any surgery but in reality surgery is usually the only means of reversing these changes. Our Dr. Todd A. Pollock has a lot of patients who are happy that they considered this set of surgeries: a mommy makeover can involve a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty surgery) and breast surgery. The type of breast surgeries performed are typically a breast lift or else a breast augmentation (adding breast implants).

Silicone and Breast Implants – Which is Right for You?

Silicone and Saline Breast Implants - Dr. Pollock Helps Patients Choose What's Best for Them

There are many choices a patient has when considering breast enlargement (or breast augmentation, as it’s often called) – one of them is what type of implant will be used: an implant filled with saline (salt water) or with silicone. Some may recall how silicone breast implants were taken off the market in 1991 because they were suspected of causing an autoimmune disorder. They also may know this was disproved and these implants have been returned to the market.

Both saline and silicone breast implants are safe and can produce an excellent result. However, each implant type has advantages and disadvantages that must be considered by the patient.

Traditional Liposuction vs. New Techniques: What’s Best for You?

Dallas Allen Plano Liposuction Information from NDPS

Traditional liposuction relates to the minimally invasive treatment of vacuuming excess fat. The goal of liposuction is to reshape specific areas of localized fat. Liposuction alone is most effective for more minor “figure faults” or altering the shape of localized fat deposits. While it is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure, it still is a real surgical procedure and so it has all the potential risks of any surgery.

But did you know that now a variety of devices have been introduced, used and many discarded? Some of the terms you may have heard are Power-Assisted Liposuction; Safe-Lipo; Ultrasonic Liposuction; and Aqualipo, Aqua Lipo, Water Lipo, or Water Assisted Liposuction. You and Dr. Todd A. Pollock, during your individual consultation, can discuss any of these with will inform you about his views on liposuction and what is the right procedure for you: ».

Dallas Body Lift Procedure – Helpful after Losing Weight

Dallas Body Lift Procedure After Weight Loss
Often following a weight-loss procedure patients will then go on to seek a body lift. However, the body lift may be appropriate for anyone who has lost a lot of weight from any method. This surgical procedure is an extension of an abdominoplasty in that the incision is continued around the posterior (back) trunk. As a result this procedure is often referred to as a “belt lipectomy”.

Whereas an abdominoplasty will tighten the abdominal skin in a downward direction, the direction of pull during a body lift in the posterior part of the surgery is upward thereby lifting the buttocks and outer thighs. The procedure also removes excess fat and skin of the back, hips and flanks which can be resistant to both diet and exercise.

As with any plastic surgery, a body-lift is not a “routine” procedure and must be individualized. To get information and recommendations specific to your individual situation North Dallas Plastic Surgery (NDPS) believes it is imperative to have a consultation with a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
