If you have problem areas, too much flab or excess skin in your abdomen that won’t diminish with diet or exercise, you may want to consider a tummy tuck says San Francisco plastic surgeon. This procedure flattens your abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall. This operation can have a truly dramatic effect and can also be combined with a liposuction San Francisco procedure to some degree to treat the fat layers.
According to tummy tuck San Francisco specialist, a tummy tuck procedure should not be used as an alternative to weight loss. Tummy tuck is a major surgery, so if you’re considering it, it’s important to take the time to educate yourself, thoroughly analyze your own situation, and do not rush to make the final decision.
The biggest drawback of this operation is the size of the permanent scar that is required says tummy tuck San Francisco expert. Most commonly this scar extends from hip to hip but this depends on the degree of excess skin. The procedure begins with an incision just above the pubic area and another around the navel to free the skin and fat layers from the vertical muscles of the abdominal wall. This access allows the muscles to be tightened with stitches producing a much flatter abdomen and narrower waistline. The skin and fat layers are then stretched down and the excess is removed. This also contributes to a flatter, firmer abdomen. Finally a new opening must be made for the navel which remained attached to the muscles during the operation. The final result is a tighter abdomen but a circular scar around the navel and a fairly long scar above the pubic area. In rare cases a mini-abdominoplasty can be performed which does not include an incision around the navel. The muscles can still be tightened but a much smaller amount of skin is removed since only the lower abdomen below the navel is treated.
After the treatment, most people enjoy the new look after they’ve undergone this procedure. It is a big commitment, emotionally, physically, and financially. One of the most important things to remember is to follow proper diet and exercise to maintain a taut tummy tuck.
