Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is designed to tighten the muscles and loose skin of the abdomen to correct a bulging belly that no amount of dieting or exercise will help. Abdominoplasty will also tighten any loose or overhanging skin and remove excess fat.
Dr. Matarasso has gone so far as to develop liposuction surgical tools of his own to better perform procedures for his patients. His inventions have included liposuction cannulas, a tray and carrying case; the Matarasso Liporoller; and reinforced (padded) SAL pressure garments currently in development.
Dr. Matarasso established the standard for the combination of abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction (lipoplasty/SAL), also known as abdominolipoplasty. He is a well-regarded expert in this groundbreaking procedure and has frequently been sought after to speak about different surgical techniques, review current trends, and discuss short- and long-term complications.
