The Avelar Tummy Tuck, also known as the “Awake Tummy Tuck”, is a unique procedure that combines abdominoplasty and liposuction to remove excess skin and tighten the stomach without excessive cutting and the need for general anesthesia.
Pioneered in Brazil in the early 1990’s by Dr. Juarez Avelar, Dr. Goldfarb offers this body contouring procedure in his Philadelphia area cosmetic surgery center. The Avelar Awake Tummy Tuck is considered a “mini tummy tuck” and is best suited to patients seeking a solution for loose abdominal skin due to childbirth or weight loss. This procedure does not address muscle tears or the relocation of the belly button that is often necessary with a more extensive skin removal.
Dr. Goldfarb will meet with you, perform a thorough physical examination and discuss your personal cosmetic goals to determine if the Avelar Tummy Tuck is right for you.
