Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty has become a very popular procedure especially in Southern California. The majority of patients who consider a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty are women who have had children and as a result have loose and lax skin in the abdominal area. In some cases this skin can form in abdominal pouch that hangs low also causing the pubis area to hang low as well. Needless to say most women do not find this attractive and seek plastic surgery to correct the situation.
Tummy Tuck Is Not A Magic Bullet
It is important for patients to realize that the proper candidate for a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty should be at or near their ideal body weight. It is not a good idea to diet down for surgery. The patient’s weight should be stable. Patients who are obese or overweight are not likely to get the best results, and therefore are encouraged to seek tummy tuck or abdominoplasty surgery once they are at a stable and healthy weight.
Tummy Tuck at Newport Plastic Surgery
Dr. Seify explains to patients that a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty should be considered as enhancement for the patient’s waistline. It is not a reconstruction of the abdomen or a medically necessary procedure. Tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure designed to create a flatter and more aesthetically pleasing abdomen. Many patients who consult with Dr. Seify have undergone cesarean sections which contributed to the inability to tighten the abdominal muscle and create a flat abdomen. Dr. Seify explains that during the surgery he will tighten the abdominal muscle, remove the loose and lax skin, and close with an incision that is typically low in the bikini line and usually extends from hip to hip. There are variations for this procedure and the recommendation for each patient can vary slightly. If appropriate, Dr. Seify may combine liposuction to achieve better contour. A tummy tuck is an excellent option for the right candidate and for most patients they are able to achieve a lifelong result.
