Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) surgery
This 41-year-old patient came to our office wanting to learn more about an Orange County abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a tummy tuck. In her “before” picture, it’s easy to see how the patient’s stomach protrudes slightly beyond the rest of her profile. This is the area which she wanted to address.
During her consultation, it was decided that a tummy tuck would be able to adjust her profile and slim down her stomach and abdomen. In a tummy tuck, excess skin and fat are cut away and the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened in order to produce sleeker lines and toned results. Abdominoplasty also restores strength to weakened or separated abdominal muscles, which often contribute to the “flabby” stomach appearance before surgery.
In the “after” pictures, the patient’s skin looks much smoother and her appearance has become more toned. The previously prominent curves created by her belly are now replaced by a gentle, unbroken line which is much more flattering. After undergoing plastic surgery in Orange County, this patient is now more confident about her body shape and has a more positive view of her physical appearance.
