Mommy Makeover in Louisville

An International Reputation For Results

Regain the flat, firm abdomen of youth.

No loose or saggy skin, no stretch marks or scarring, no belly bulges or love-handles. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a major surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall, dramatically reducing the bulge and flattening the abdomen. In a full abdominoplasty, the skin above the umbilicus is pulled down to the pubic line, removing all the lax skin in between.

The umbilicus is then placed in its new position with an improved shape. The abdominal muscles are sutured, tightening the abdominal wall. Dr. O’Daniel utilizes a revolutionary procedure called a “high lateral tension abdominoplasty with liposuction” — which he learned from procedures innovator Dr. Ted Lockwood more than 20 years ago – that achieves a firmer abdominal wall and narrower waistline than possible with a traditional abdominoplasty.

Major Weight Loss

You Worked Hard to Lose Weight.
Don’t You Deserve to Look Your Very Best?

Major weight loss is an enormous accomplishment, but the residual effects on the body’s appearance can take away from the successful patient’s happiness. Pockets and folds of sagging skin will pucker and fold over many sections of the body, from the breasts, back, hips, abdomen, thighs, arms and pubic area, and can actually make the body appear misshapen.

In fact, the massive weight-loss patient requires an entirely different approach from the traditional body-contour patient. Dr. O’Daniel assesses the patient’s entire body, including skin texture and tissue laxity, to determine the best combination of innovative procedures to restore whole-body proportion and balance, and resurrect the normal body contours following major weight loss.

Mini-Tummy Tuck

A Firmer, Tighter Tummy

Dr. O’Daniel will perform a mini-tummy tuck in patients with less excess skin above the umbilicus, but who still wish to have the laxity of their abdominal muscles corrected.

The mini-tummy tuck reduces the amount of scarring associated with the full tummy tuck. The mini-tummy tuck also has a shorter recovery time.

Liposuction and Laser Liposuction

Firm and Tighten Your Skin

Liposuction enhances the body’s silhouette by removing stubborn areas of exercise-resistant fat deposits, most commonly around the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. A narrow tube, or cannula, is inserted through a tiny incision and used to vacuum the fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin.

Dr. O’Daniel uses a variety of refinements to this basic process to provide his patients with more precise results and quicker recovery time, depending on the individual patient and extent of areas needing liposuction. Often, laser-assisted liposuction is performed, particularly in areas of dense fat and in patients who have previously undergone liposuction.

Treatment : Tummy Tuck

Dr. O’Daniel and his staff are wonderful. I did have a slight problem after the surgery and they were very caring and solved my problem immediately. I would not go to any other doctor. I trust Dr. O’Daniel. I look better and that makes me feel good.
