The Art and Science of a SMART Tummy Tuck

September 15, 2023

SMART Tummy TuckYour body is the only one you have; that’s why you should always treat it with the utmost care. That means not only keeping it physically healthy to the best of your abilities but also aesthetically healthy. And though there are plenty of ways to manage both, there are countless ways in which they can be hindered beyond your ability to address them with healthier lifestyle choices. One such hindrance is loose, excessive skin around the stomach, which can be treated easily with Body by Ravi’s SMART Tummy Tuck procedure.

What Makes the Tummy Tuck SMART?

As explained expertly by Dr. Ravi himself (you can view the video here), SMART isn’t just about the expertise and professionalism that he handles each and every SMART tummy tuck with. SMART is also an acronym for “Safe Muscular Aponeurotic Resuspension Technique.” Put simply, this means that it’s the same effective tummy tuck procedure you know and love, but with an increased focus on patient comfort and safety.

How the SMART Tummy Tuck Works

The artfully approached and scientifically devised design of Body by Ravi’s SMART Tummy Tuck procedure offers an experience that is a cut above other tummy tuck treatments you may find. As mentioned above, this is because it focuses on your safety and comfort while still achieving the same excellent results you’d expect from a professionally performed tummy tuck.

Higher Safety

First and foremost, SMART tummy tucks are made safer thanks to the unique fluids and numbing agents used during the procedure. Using these, bleeding can be minimized—making the process much simpler overall—and the wounds left over will be able to heal with little to no delay.

Less Discomfort

The unique combination of ingredients used in the anesthetics also provides a wonderful level of comfort both during and after the procedure, ensuring that the whole process is as easy and stress-free as possible.

Minimal Scarring

Thanks to those same fluids and numbing agents—as well as the delicate, safety-oriented nature of SMART tummy tucks—scarring can be minimized through simpler incisions and a promoted healing process.

This patient felt uncomfortable with the excess skin in her tummy and wanted to cinch her waistline. She underwent a Mini Tummy Tuck with Lipo360 to achieve her desired look! 

Considering a mini tummy tuck? This procedure involves a shorter incision, focusing on excess skin or laxity in the lower abdomen. Don't worry, your belly button remains untouched! But remember, it's not a one-size-fits-all solution – it's tailored to specific patients with unique needs.
