Steve Laverson, MD, of Feel Beautiful Plastic Surgery, in Encinitas and Carlsbad, Calif, has developed a new abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) technique that creates a more sculpted, fit appearance than traditional tummy tuck procedures. The surgery incorporates methods to create a trim, feminine torso.

Laverson has found that women appreciate additional sculpture of their abdominal surface anatomy. 

"Most moms just want to feel sexy again after having children," says Laverson. "This tummy tuck tightens the abdominal wall and removes excess skin like traditional techniques, but also controls surface contour and narrows the waist nicely. San Diego women live outdoors, are fitness devotees, and want to look good in swimsuits. Combined with other procedures, such as breast augmentation or breast lift, the female silhouette is enhanced considerably in just one day, and the results last a lifetime."

Laverson is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
