Time for a Tuck

For many people, time and age takes its toll on the body. For example, having a baby can lead to loose abdominal skin. Or losing a lot of weight may create hanging skin. In these and other situations, one thing can really help a lot. This is called a Southern California tummy tuck. With this procedure, excess skin is removed from the midsection. It leaves things nice and tight. Sometimes the muscles are firmed up underneath as well. If you think this may be of help to you, the best step is to check with a plastic surgeon!

A New Stomach

Are you embarrassed by a sagging stomach that hangs over your pants? Have you noticed that no matter how much you diet or exercise, that flabby abdominal area does not seem to get any smaller? If these are problems that you are familiar with, then you may be a candidate for a tummy tuck procedure.

This procedure, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a very common surgical procedure in which a Surgeon permanently removes a large, football shaped size of skin and fat from the abdominal area. After removing the skin, the Surgeon then stitches and/or braids the stomach muscles to give you that taut, tight tummy you either once had or have always wanted. Los Angeles tummy tuck is a very popular procedure among mothers as well as people who have undergone gastric bypass surgery, lap band surgery or have lost a significant amount of weight.

Once the skin has been stretched past the point of elasticity, short of surgical intervention, there is not much you can do to rectify the issue. It is recommended that you take a week or so off of work to recover, however you are never on bed rest after this procedure. In fact, we want you walking around, carefully and with assistance, the very same day of your surgery! Many of our patients report a new lease on life and say that they are exercising more, losing weight much faster in other body areas, and are generally happier and healthier.

There are important aspects of this procedure that you should discuss with your surgeon prior to booking. This is the same as for any procedure, such as rhinoplasty. Please schedule a consultation to meet with a Medical Director to get your questions answered and to determine if you are a candidate for this wonderful, life changing operation!
