The Tummy Tuck remains one of mother’s favorite helpers after child birth. The procedure also known as Abdominoplasty literally means abdomen changing. By tightening the abdominal muscles, removing disproportionate fat and trimming excess skin, Abdominoplasty recreates a more youthful, pre-pregnancy appearance.
Tummy Tucks and Abdominoplasty
Today’s post includes a video segment from the most recent episode of KRON 4’s Body Beautiful. In this edition, I discuss body work including:
- Full Abdominoplasty
- Mini Tummy Tucks
- Brazilian Butt Lifts
- Revision Abdominal Liposuction
Abdominoplasty Video Presentation
Tummy Tucks and Liposuction
As discussed in the video above, sometimes additional procedures are used in conjunction with Abdominoplasty to further improve body contours and proportions. The first before and after pictures in this post include the results of a Tummy Tuck and the most commonly added procedure, Liposuction of the sides and back. This combination enhances body proportions all the way around the trunk.
Tummy Tucks and Brazilian Buttocks Lifts
Another combination that has become very popular recently is Abdominoplasty with a Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL. Fat is removed from unwanted areas, like the the abdomen and flanks, and is transplanted to the buttocks to correct loose, flabby buttocks. The result is improvement in both buttocks volume and shape. The patient above had a Tummy Tuck with Liposuction of her sides and back. The buttocks were then enhanced with fat grafting, aka a Brazilian Buttocks Lift.
Tummy Tucks provide repair on multiple levels. From the foundation to the surface, major improvement is possible in all these layers: muscle, fat and skin. With proper maintenance, your results will last many years. It is recommended that the procedure be delayed until after you are finished having children. This allows all the damage to be mediated, but also prevents future pregnancy from stretching the abdominal wall out of shape again. The patient shown above is over a decade out from her Tummy Tuck, and she continues to enjoy her youthful belly today.
Tummy Tuck Consultations
The demand for Abdominoplasty is year round; however, this is the best time of year to do it. The winter months allow you to cover up during recovery, and reveal your metamorphosis in the spring. To find out if a Tummy Tuck is right for you, call (925) 943-6353, and schedule a private consultation appointment in our Walnut Creek Plastic Surgery Office.Previous Post Next Post
