Part two of three for the Mommy Makeover segment from NBC Bay Area’s, KNTV, Living Well with host Peggy Pico.
On this show we discussed the Mommy Makeover San Francisco, focussing on breast augmentation, tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck and liposuction. I previously posted an excerpt from the show on Breast Enhancement (Breast Augmentation) on the San Francisco Plastic Surgery Blog. This video discusses Belly Enhancement, tummy tucks and mini tummy tucks. The third segment will discuss liposuction. The full episode is also available on line. To view the Living Well episode in its entirety, just click on the NBC Bay Area logo above.
This video discusses the types of tummy tucks available: the traditional tummy tuck (sometimes called abdominoplasty or panniculectomy) and the mini tummy tuck (a combination of tummy tuck and liposuction). For laxity of the abdominal wall that begins above the belly button. the tummy tuck is still the most effective treatment. If the abdominal laxity is confined to the area below the belly button, a mini tummy tuck may provide a good fix with a shorter recovery.
I will add the final video from Living Well about liposuction shortly, so be sure to bookmark and check back. If you would like more information on Tummy Tuck San Francisco, click here to visit the Abdominoplasty page on DrMele.com.
