What is a Tummy Tuck?

by | Sep 24, 2019 | Medical

 A tummy tuck removes excess fat or tissue underneath the skin of the abdominal area. As a result, the stomach appears flatter, firmer, and more toned. This cosmetic surgery is widely regarded as being very safe. At Valencia Plastic Surgery, the tummy tuck is a popular form of cosmetic surgery also referred to as an abdominoplasty. It involves the removal of fat and excess skin from the stomach to tighten and firm the abdominal area.
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and requires an incision between the navel and pubic region. More than one incision is sometimes needed to repair weakened or separated abdominal muscles.
During your confidential consultation in Valencia, Dr. Hu will allow you to view our extensive library of our Santa Clarita tummy tuck before and after photos. Your results may vary based on the amount of excess tissue that needs to be removed.
Our patients have been very pleased with their tummy tuck results from Dr. Hu at Valencia Plastic Surgery.
Who is a good candidate for a tummy tuck? Santa Clarita patients may be ideal candidates if they…
• Are in good health, both physically and mentally • Have no major medical issues
• Are a non-smoker • Have realistic goals for improvement rather than perfection
• Are suffering from excess fat and skin that hasn’t responded to diet or exercise
• Feel self-conscious about the appearance of their belly fat or stretch marks
