Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty)
Extra fat in the stomach can be removed simply through liposuction, but when stretched muscles and loose skin are also present, it is best to consider abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck). An incision is made on the lower abdomen, just above the pubic bone, through which excess fat and skin are removed. Just prior to the procedure, I recommend patients wear an undergarment or bikini to ensure the scar will fall below the garment. Abdominal muscles and skin can be tightened to flatten the abdomen. Depending on the amount of skin excess, the belly-button may need an incision around it as well.
Ever thought of wanting to get rid of that small area of extra fat? You are in great shape, but no matter how hard you exercise or however many ‘cleansing’ diet regimes you suffer through, that lower abdomen/lateral thigh/inner thigh/upper back area just will not budge! Dr. James Rosing, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, now offers LipoShaping right here in our Newport Beach office to address those smaller fatty areas effectively without needing general anesthesia. This procedure offers the ability to directly contour the neck, abdomen, flanks, back, arms, and thighs by removing excess fat in a minimally invasive manner. LipoShaping is akin to liposuction in that it is an effective way to reduce fat excess, though differs in that it is more targeted with less downtime. Many patients find it helpful to view before and after photos of LipoShaping.
