Atlanta Tummy Tuck Specialists
At Bella Forma Cosmetic Surgery Center we coined the phrase “Brazilian Tummy Tuck” (BTT) to explain the difference of this method from the “Traditional Tummy Tuck” (TTT).
In Brazilian Tummy Tuck we perform a complete Liposuction of the fat under the skin marked for removal and cut only the skin part, leaving very important nerves, blood vessels and lymphatics intact. Drains are minimally used and the recovery is 50% faster than Traditional Tummy Tuck.
In Traditional Tummy Tuck, very limited liposuction is performed in the upper abdomen and the skin with the fat layer marked for excision are removed en-block thus, removing nerves, blood vessels and lymphatic channels. Drains are used for several weeks with a prolonged downtime.
A 3-D liposculpture with a Brazilian Butt Lift is usually performed on patients undergoing Brazilian Tummy Tuck and not Traditional Tummy Tuck. The results are dramatic and patients love the transformation.
Pain is easily controlled with medications and special post-op body treatments created at Bella Forma Med Spa to help patient recover faster.
