Tummy Tuck Surgery – Abdominoplasty in Long Beach CA
A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) generally involves removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdominal area coupled with the tightening of the stomach muscles. This surgical procedure is usually sought by patients with loose or sagging skin after pregnancy or weight loss.
Thousands of women and men each year seek to improve their abdominal contours, especially after having kids or experiencing dramatic weight loss. Abdominoplasty surgery is ideal for patients who are at a stable weight and are done having kids, as major weight fluctuations or future pregnancies can affect Tummy Tuck results.
No other procedure or non-surgical treatment can tighten your stomach and get rid of loose, hanging skin the way a Tummy Tuck can. However, Liposuction is a great procedure to combine with Abdominoplasty surgery to achieve an even flatter, firmer stomach.
The incision usually runs from hip to hip and is easily hidden by most underwear and bathing suits. For patients with minimal excess skin, a shorter scar Mini-Abdominoplasty may be an option. In cases of significant weight loss, the most appropriate surgical option may be a Belt Lift (Circumferential Lift), which not only tightens the abdomen but also elevates the buttocks.
