Considering Abdominoplasty? Here Are Your Choices

Gaining and losing weight can take a toll on your midsection skin causing it to become inelastic and unable to bounce back and shrink to its former tightness. This can leave you with loose, hanging skin that’s anything but flattering to your figure. Abdominoplasty, performed at John Park MD Plastic Surgery, can get rid of the extra skin that’s hindering your appearance, movement, and confidence. When opting for abdominoplasty, there are a few different options to consider.

Mini Tummy Tuck For Minor Abdominal Correction

If you suffer from just a little excess skin in the lower abdominal area (below the belly button), a mini tummy tuck may be sufficient. A mini tummy tuck is less invasive requiring a smaller incision and no repositioning of the belly button. This is ideal if you only have that little lower pooch that isn’t accompanied by fatty deposits.

Full Tummy Tuck For Greater Tummy Repair

During a full abdominoplasty, an incision is made from hip bone to hip bone as well as around the navel. Large amounts of excess skin located above and below the belly button are removed to create a shapelier waistline. This is an excellent option for individuals who have undergone massive weight loss and have folds of skin that diet and exercise can’t treat. During a full tummy tuck, the navel is either relocated, or a new one is created.

Muscle Repair To Tighten And Tone

Usually, during a full tummy tuck, muscle repair is performed. Your abdominal muscles can become separated during pregnancy or extreme weight gain due to the expansion and stretching of the abdomen. During a tummy tuck, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon Dr. John Park can suture your abdominal muscles back together which helps to achieve the tight, flat abs that are so widely desired as well as help to relieve back pain.

Liposuction To Suck Away Excess Fat

More times than not, liposuction will be added to a tummy tuck to remove the fatty deposits that usually accompany the excess skin leftover from massive weight loss. These stubborn pockets of fat are resistant to diet and exercise and are only able to be removed using liposuction or another fat reduction procedure. When performed alongside abdominoplasty, patients can achieve a streamlined physique with tight and fit contours.
