Dr. Patronellla, shown left with ACPS colleague Dr. Rolando Morales, won the best paper award at the Texas Society of Plastic Surgeons 2015 meeting, At the conference, he presented his innovative True Form Tummy Tuck method.

What began as a quest to create more attractive tummy tuck results has culminated in a year of multiple honors for Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Patronella. Dissatisfied with the “flat-as-a-board” abdominal appearance that standard tummy tuck methods produced, Patronella set out to reproduce, via a combination of surgical techniques, the subtle anatomical details that characterize a naturally beautiful, toned feminine abdomen—a 15 year process that resulted in his True Form Tummy Tuck® approach.

The Aesthetic Surgery Journal, considered the premier publication of cosmetic plastic surgery, spotlighted Patronella’s method as the “Featured Operative Technique” in its November/December issue article, “Redefining Abdominal Anatomy: 10 Key Elements for Restoring Form in Abdominoplasty.” In the article, Patronella details the techniques he uses to create physical characteristics that include a smooth, even skin tone; soft contours of varying depth; and a deep, oval-shaped navel.

Earlier in the year, Patronella won the Fox award for the best paper presented at the Texas Society of Plastic Surgeons annual meeting in San Antonio for his talk on the same subject. He received the award based upon the votes of plastic surgeons throughout Texas who attended the conference. Patronella also presented his method at the 2015 meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Montreal, and he was invited to present it at a 2016 meeting of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Argentina.

Patronella said, “One of women’s greatest fears about having a tummy tuck is that it will look unnatural and easily identified as a surgical looking abdomen rather than their natural state. Through careful analysis of what creates an aesthetically appealing abdomen and reproducing those features, we can offer patients a much better outcome—one that allows them to feel more confident wearing a swimsuit and going to the pool.” He added, “Women will wear tummy tuck results the rest of their lives. They deserve the best plastic surgery has to offer.”

Dr. Christopher Patronella is a founding partner of The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) one of the largest private cosmetic plastic surgery practices in Texas, and a clinical professor of surgery in the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He and his ACPS colleagues have introduced numerous plastic surgery innovations to improve patients’ safety and aesthetic results. In addition to performing facial, breast, and body contouring surgery, Dr. Patronella offers a wide range of nonsurgical treatments with minimal recovery time required to help women and men look and feel their best.
