Marin County’s Premier Tummy Tuck Surgeon

Available at all of our offices in Marin County, Petaluma, and Davis, the tummy tuck procedure, also called abdominoplasty, is designed to help patients achieve smoother, flatter abdomens. Ideal candidates for abdominoplasty at our Marin County, Sacramento-area, and other offices are patients with loose, sagging skin on the abdominal wall that is resistant to diet and exercise. This problem can be caused by pregnancy, age, genetics, or rapid weight loss. Dr. Henry utilizes the tummy tuck surgery to correct it, because she believes it to be both safe and effective. We also offer other types of body contouring, including buttock lift, thigh lift, and upper-arm lift.

About Abdominoplasty at Our Marin County, Sonoma County, and Sacramento-area Practice

The abdominoplasty procedure performed at our Marin County, Sonoma County, and Sacramento-area locations removes excess abdominal skin and may also reduce fat and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.

Abdominoplasty may be performed on an outpatient basis at our Marin County, Sacramento-area, or Sonoma County practices, or during a short hospital stay. It typically involves a horizontal incision just within or above the pubic area. The contour may vary, but Dr. Henry will try to leave the most discreet scar possible, within the lines of bathing suits or undergarments that you typically wear.

Types of Abdominoplasty Offered at Our Marin County, Sacramento-area, and Sonoma County Practice

  • Miniature abdominoplasty, or mini- tummy tuck, requires the shortest incision and can be used to tighten the lower abdominal wall skin.
  • Modified tummy tuck addresses specific locations where only the muscle wall or abdominal skin requires repair.
  • Standard abdominoplasty tightens all of the abdominal wall skin and muscles.
  • Extended tummy tuck tightens the abdomen and the flanks, and requires the longest incision.
  • Endoscopic tummy tuck can be effective for patients with a protruding stomach but little extra skin. The procedure is performed with an endoscope, and involves smaller incisions and less scarring.

Thigh-Buttock Lift

Thigh and buttock lift surgery can create tighter, more attractive contours, ideal for patients who have lost skin elasticity and have dimpled skin in the thigh, hip, and buttock areas.

Inner thigh lift requires only short incisions extending from the anterior part of the thigh/groin crease around to the buttock crease. An entire thigh and buttock lift requires longer incisions that start in the buttock crease and extend around the groin, up over the side of the abdomen, over the flank, and across the back. After the incisions are made, excess skin is lifted upward and removed. Dr. Henry pays close attention to the placement of the incisions to avoid unsightly scarring. As a result, she will discuss a wide variety of thigh and buttock lift incision placement options available to meet personal or clothing needs.

Upper Arm Lift

Upper arm lift is a perfect solution for unsightly, sagging skin on the upper arms. Saggy skin can be caused by any number of factors, including aging, genetics, and weight loss. The good news is that upper arm lift is a safe, popular, and effective way to achieve beautifully toned, shapely arms.

The upper arm lift procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. In order to remove excess skin, an incision is made from near the top of the elbow to the armpit. Then, unwanted skin and fatty tissue are carefully removed to reveal slimmer, leaner arms.

Another procedure that may improve the results of an upper arm lift is liposuction, which can also be expertly performed by Dr. Henry. Contact Dr. Henry for more information on upper arm lift surgery.
