The abdominal skin can be tightened and the contour improved with laser treatments. Laser treatments result in a subtle tightening of the abdominal skin. Not surprisingly, the tightening is not as dramatic as surgical rejuvenation. The same goes for Stretch Mark Removal. The stretch marks will be reduced, but they will not be elimated. The best use of laser is to improve and help maintain a rejuvenated appearance to your abdomen.

Goals of Plastic Surgery

As medical technologies have boomed over the past two decades, plastic surgery has made incredible advances both in reconstructing accidental injuries and congenital deformities, and in helping erase the marks, wrinkles and sags of encroaching age. Whether it’s changing a portion of the body to make it look normal or improving a “normal” facet of the body to make it look even more aesthetically pleasing, the goal of the plastic surgeon is to help the patient look good and feel good about him or herself.
