Abdominoplasty in San Antonio – by Dr. Eric Schaffer

As we get older, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and begins to sag. Once the skin begins to sag, the muscles and fat follow along with it. Sometimes after pregnancy, abdominal muscles may get stretched out and separated. Different factors such as weight loss and pregnancy can leave large stretch marks and rob the body of its natural elasticity much sooner than normal.

Men and women of all ages are dissatisfied with their stomachs and seek the expertise of Dr. Eric Schaffer, who is board certified from Harvard Medical School and the University of Texas Health Science Center to achieve the results they want through Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a Tummy Tuck.

Abdominoplasty Procedure

Tummy Tucks are performed a wide variety of ways depending on your individual needs. Usually, an incision just below the belly button is made and then runs hip to hip.

Once the procedure is done, Dr. Schaffer helps you understand what you can do to minimize any bruising and discomfort you may experience as you heal.
