Understanding Tummy Tuck Surgery in North Orange County

Patients seeking a tummy tuck in Southern California often travel to visit a North Orange County abdominoplasty surgeon. A tummy tuck, which is medically known as abdominoplasty, is performed to remove excess skin and fatty tissue, leading to a flatter more aesthetically pleasing stomach. Tummy tucks are typically ideal for patients who are not overweight, but suffer from loose skin around the abdomen, generally following a pregnancy or weight loss surgery. For women who undergo abdominoplasty in North Orange County following pregnancy, it is often part of a combination of procedures known as a mommy makeover, which can also contain breast augmentation or breast reduction.

During a tummy tuck, a North Orange County abdominoplasty surgeon makes a horizontal incision from one hip to the other, just above the pubic area. The surgeon then separates the skin from the fatty tissue. Next, abdominal muscles are tightened and excess skin is removed. The abdominal muscle tightening is one step that can be confusing for some body contouring patients who are trying to differentiate between an abdominoplasty and a panniculectomy. During the latter procedure, the abdominal muscles are not tightened, though the other steps of the surgery are performed.

If required, liposuction may also be performed during the tummy tuck surgery to remove additional fat. The recovery period may last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks after which patients can fully enjoy their new body and a flat stomach area.
