Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Overview
Tummy tuck procedures, scientifically known as abdominoplasty, are a cosmetic treatment used to remove excess skin that may have been caused by weight loss, pregnancy, and other major life changes. While they are often considered a mommy makeover, tummy tucks are also popular among men.
The tummy tuck procedure is completed under general anesthesia while Dr. Lawton can complete both partial and full tummy tuck surgeries. It can also be completed in conjunction with liposuction if that is deemed the best course of action.
Tummy Tuck Benefits
Abdominoplasty isn’t merely a quick route to gaining the body you want. In many cases, it is the only viable option.
When you lose weight through diet and exercise (or even liposuction), only the fat cells leave your body. It is impossible to remove excess skin through lifestyle choices. So, if the skin does not naturally correct itself, tummy tuck surgery is the only option. The many benefits of this procedure include, but are not limited to;
- Excess skin is removed from the abdomen in just 2-3 hours.
- Gain a flatter stomach for a more athletic physique.
- Witness a tightening of stomach muscles for improved strength.
- Restore self-confidence, especially in public or intimate moments.
- Feel significantly lighter and able to enjoy your weight loss.
Dr. Lawton completes tummy tuck procedures in a quick and safe manner from inside a comfortable Newport Beach surrounding while the recovery time is just 3-5 weeks. After this time, you’ll be able to enjoy the full benefits of the treatment.
