Tummy Tuck Pasadena & Los Angeles | Thomas Taylor MD

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Having a flat, contoured abdomen is important to most people. Unfortunately, the abdomen can be one of the most difficult areas to target. Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and aging often take a huge toll on the body. The aftermath is excess fat and loose, hanging skin on the abdomen as well as weak abdominal muscles. For the most part, the effects of aging, weight gain and loss, and childbirth cannot be addressed solely with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Tummy tuck surgery is an effective procedure that involves the surgical excision of excess skin and fat and the tightening of the abdominal muscles. Patients can achieve a firmer, more toned abdomen and enjoy their results for many years.

Achieved With Tummy Tuck Surgery

Whether you are a woman seeking to regain your pre-childbirth figure, a massive weight loss patient wanting to correct excess, hanging skin, or a man who wants to eliminate a protruding “beer belly,” tummy tuck surgery can help you achieve a more defined abdomen. This procedure slims the waistline and contours the entire abdominal area.

Dr. Taylor will help a patient achieve a more toned abdomen by removing excess fat, reducing the amount of hanging skin, tightening the abdominal muscle walls, and redraping the skin into a more flattering shape.

What Does a Tummy Tuck Entail?

The procedure will be performed using a general anesthetic. An incision is made just above the pubic area from hip to hip. The shape and length of the incision will be determined by the amount of excess skin. Unwanted fat and skin are removed, and the extra skin is separated from the abdominal wall all the way up to the ribs. Dr. Taylor will tighten underlying muscles and stitch them in place. The skin is redraped, drawn down smooth, and stitched closed. A new hole is created for the navel.
