Commenting on recent statistics that show an increased demand for tummy tucks in Great Britain, Austin plastic surgery specialist Dr. Rocco Piazza notes that many of his patients in the United States choose to customize this popular procedure.

Dr. Rocco Piazza of The Piazza Center says that recent statistics from Great Britain on the increasing popularity of tummy tucks align with a trend he's seen at his Austin plastic surgery practice.

A report from The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) reveals a 15% increase in demand for tummy tuck procedures among men in 2011 and a 7% increase in demand among women.

"More people are taking advantage of advancements in surgical procedures, both in the United States and in Europe," Dr. Piazza says. "As technology improves, we’re seeing shorter recovery times and longer-lasting results” for procedures such as abdominoplasty and breast augmentation in Austin, TX.

Dr. Piazza says more of his patients are asking for procedures that are customized to their specific needs. A number of surgical and non-surgical options are available to complement tummy tucks and help achieve more comprehensive, natural-looking results.

"There are countless ways to personalize the procedure to match a person's exact body type," Dr. Piazza says.

"Many people ask how a tummy tuck in Austin differs from one person to another. Depending on the person's body type and cosmetic goals, I perform varying amounts of contouring. While sculpting the abdominal skin flap, I make sure to provide the perfect degree of shaping to complement the person's body.

“Some patients choose to have complementary procedures, such as liposuction, on other areas of the body to create a more comprehensive result."

Dr. Piazza says the British tummy tuck statistics are a promising indicator that people not only are aware of advances in plastic surgery but also want to take advantage of the changes such surgery can make in their lives.

"I always look forward to educating patients on which procedures will provide the most effective route to achieving the looks they desire," he says. "The recent statistics are proof that plastic surgery is helping more people."
