As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Roger J. Oldham is supported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an organization committed to excellence in care and patient satisfaction both with the procedure results and with themselves. As the nation becomes more health conscious, more and more Americans are turning to healthier habits of eating and exercising. Sometimes, however, body contouring efforts can be more successful if approached surgically. Abdominal fatty tissue, for example, is incredibly difficult to target through traditional means, so Dr. Oldham recommends it for health-conscious patients who want an alternative.
The abdominal wall is a complicated network of muscles and tissue. The abdomen wall itself is a group of four major muscles: the internal and external obliques (the sides), the rectus abdominus (which runs vertically and responsible for the 6-pack look), and the transverse abdominal muscle (which wraps around the body, providing support from the lower back as well). The “6-pack” ab is visible because it is closest to the surface of the skin. Other abdominal muscles are not easily seen nor are they easily accessible through exercises. The transverse abdominal muscle works with the back to provide support, posture, and upper body strength. This lower abdominal muscle is even more difficult to target, but mini tummy tuck surgery can help. See for yourself in these pictures of patients before and after mini tummy tuck with Dr. Oldham.
