Posted Feb 15 2011 11:17am
Each New Year thousands, if not millions, of people vow to lose weight. However, before February even rolls around most of us have forgotten about our resolution and are back to our normal routine. Be honest, how many years in a row have you promised to get in your best shape ever, and then broken this promise to yourself? This year is an excellent time to make permanent changes to your body and become happy with your figure once and for all. When diets and exercise fail to give you the shape you desire, it is becoming more and more common for people to resort to surgical measures. In San Francisco tummy tuck procedures are one of the most popular requests a San Francisco plastic surgeon hears.
A tummy tuck is most often requested after a patient has lost a lot of weight but is unhappy with the results because of loose, sagging skin. During a traditional tummy tuck fat is not removed, but instead the loose skin is cut and the remaining skin is stitched up, which also reduces the appearance of stretch marks. It is becoming very trendy for mothers who don’t plan on having more children to receive a tummy tuck shortly after giving birth. When patients are unhappy with stubborn pouches of fat that gather in problem areas, such as the lower abdomen, inner thighs, or butt, they often resort to liposuction and body contouring. Liposuction actually removes fat cells from the body, so that even if you do gain a few pounds back, it will most likely settle in a different area. When opting for liposuction San Francisco patients should choose their doctor carefully, as body contouring is an art and some surgeons are much more skilled than others.
When choosing a plastic surgeon it is wise to ask friends and relatives who have had the same procedure for referrals. Seek out patients who have already gone through the procedure so you can ask questions regarding your fears and expectations. A real person who has gone through a similar experience will be able to prepare you for what to expect during the recovery process and alleviate your fears. Once you have done this preliminary research, you should begin seeking a doctor. Speak to a few different board certified surgeons until you find one who you feel comfortable with that is patient and understanding, rather than just trying to make a sell. When opting for a tummy tuck or liposuction the average San Francisco plastic surgeon has a lot of experience in safely slimming and shaping your body.
