Tummy Tuck — Lake Forest Abdominoplasty Surgery
It is important for patients to understand what can be helped and what cannot be helped with abdominoplasty, also known as the tummy tuck. The best way to get comprehensive answers about this surgical procedure is to have a personal evaluation by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Terrasse.
During a consultation, Dr. Terrasse will thoroughly review the benefits and limitations of the tummy tuck procedure.
The tummy tuck helps remove excess adipose (fatty) tissue and loose skin above the muscle layer. In addition, the surgery can tighten the abdominal muscles that may have separated or stretched during pregnancy. This technique helps improve the internal “girdle” that the abdominal muscles usually provide.
An abdominoplasty is not a procedure for weight loss, but rather it is a very helpful technique for improving one’s appearance after significant weight loss by diet and exercise or weight loss surgery. Once an individual’s weight is stable, then patients can proceed with an abdominoplasty, and the final outcome will be much better.
