What is Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck?
If you’re experiencing belly flab, stretch marks, and loose skin on the stomach, an abdominoplasty may be right for you. Also called a tummy tuck, abdominoplasties are used to reduce fat, trim away sagging skin, and tighten loose abdominal muscles in order to recontour the stomach area. The end result is a trim, smooth, and fit-looking abdomen with well-defined muscles.
With abdominoplasties, you have two options: a full tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck. The full tummy tuck gives the plastic surgeon greater access to the underlying tissues, which allows for more tissue removal and more extensive tightening. However, the mini tummy tuck offers a faster recovery time. Speak to our board-certified plastic surgeons here at Face Center Los Angeles to determine which procedure is best for your aesthetic goals.
