The abdomen is the part of the body where excess fat frequently gathers. Many people, however, have great difficulty getting rid of their unwanted bulges—even with frequent exercise and diet. A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that eliminates any excess skin and fat away from an individual’s lower and middle abdomen. It also tightens the muscles in the abdominal wall.
Tummy tuck surgery is the procedure of choice for both men and women who want to tighten the weak muscles and tone the loose skin to achieve an overall flatter tummy and slimmer waistline. It is particularly popular among women whose bodies have been greatly affected by pregnancy and weight gain. Ideal candidates for a tummy tuck are individuals of normal weight who have a considerably bulging abdomen due to factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, and aging.
While a tummy tuck can produce remarkable results, some individuals also opt to combine this surgery with liposuction in order to remove any fatty deposits around the abdominal area that may be hard to remove.
How much is a San Diego tummy tuck? The price for this procedure varies greatly, as it depends on several factors such as the patient’s fat distribution, the complexity of the patient, and the need for other procedures to be performed simultaneously. Of course, we are aware that cost will always be a big concern. This is why we make it a point to offer our cosmetic services at a very affordable price in order to allow as many people as possible to achieve the figure they’ve always wanted.
A tummy tuck takes roughly three to four hours long under general anesthesia, and is performed on an outpatient basis. Since it is a major procedure, a lengthy recovery period may be required. Compression bandages and medication are often prescribed to manage any pain and swelling. Stitches are often removed a week after the date of surgery, and it is usually then patients are allowed to do light exercises to speed up the healing process and prevent any blood clots from forming.
