One of the most common signs of aging is the development of a belly that no longer looks as “fresh” and tight as it used to. This is especially common with men and women that have struggled with their weight and diets, those that have given up exercising, those over the age of 40 and women that have been pregnant before.
With so much of a person’s self-confidence in their looks tied into the look of their stomach, it’s no wonder that San Diego tummy tucks are so common. Tummy tucks, also known as Abdominoplasty, provide an effective, widely popular cosmetic surgery solution to those that want to create a flat stomach. Those in San Diego that want to opt for a tummy tuck call Dr. Agha.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty is the name of a type of plastic surgery that is designed to create a flatter and healthier looking stomach. The actual procedure can vary depending on issues like your age, health, where the weight is, and more, but most involve the following process:
The plastic surgeon creates an incision that is usually on the lower part of the hip.
The plastic surgeon may make another incision, usually around the belly button.
The skin is lifted and the muscles of the abdomen are tightened.
The abdomen area is shaped – with liposuction, fat removal, or skin removal.
The skin is then reattached to the body, and a compression garment may be used to keep the stomach flat.
Though all surgeries have risks, tummy tucks are considered some of the safer procedures available today because the technology and skill has evolved considerably amongst plastic surgeons. Yet you still need an experienced surgeon that understands the artistry of tummy tucks, with positive reviews from patients that have undergone their procedure. That’s why so many people from San Diego choose to work with Dr. Agha – to receive excellent care and the exact body they wanted.
Things to Know About a San Diego Tummy Tuck
Tummy tucks are not always completed alone. They may be partnered with breast augmentation, liposuction, and more. Tummy tucks also may have a long recovery time, and there is often noticeable scarring near the pelvis that can take over a year or more to fade. Like all cosmetic procedures, there are risks involved, which is why it is important to speak with Dr. Agha first and determine if tummy tucks are the right decision for you.
