Tummy Tuck Video Presentation (Abdominoplasty)

Today’s Tummy Tuck Video Presentation is from my KRON 4 television show, Body Beautiful. In this video, we review who is a good candidate for a Tummy Tuck, and illustrate the discussion with Abdominoplasty Before and After Pictures. The photos are highlighted to show how tummy tucks affect the three components of abdominal wall rejuvenation: Muscle, Fat and Skin. As always, the results show actual patients from our Walnut Creek Plastic Surgery Center.

Abdominoplasty – Muscle Wall Tightening

Abdominal reshaping starts with tightening the muscles. The rectus sheath stretches with weight gain and pregnancy. Maximal stretching can lead to rectus abdominis diastasis and exacerbation of umbilical hernias. All these are repaired as part of the muscle wall tightening component of Abdominoplasty.

Tummy Tuck Before and After Pictures - Muscle Tightening

Step one of abdominoplasty is tightening the muscles. The outer vertical lines show the outer edge of the rectus muscles. The wide central band shows muscle separation.

Abdominoplasty – Fat Removal

The second step of the Tummy Tuck is removing the excess fat. The fat that sits on the surface of the muscle rounds the lower abdomen. Removing this fat further contours and flattens the belly. The area of fat removal is highlighted in the next Tummy Tuck Before and After Pictures.

Step two of abdominoplasty is removing excess fat from the lower abdominal wall, highlighted above.

Abdominoplasty – Skin Tightening

The finishing touch of Abdominoplasty is tightening the skin. Once the muscle is tight and the excess fat is removed, the skin is drawn taught, to show the tightening of the abdominal wall.

Step three of abdominoplasty is removing excess skin. The skin removed is highlighted above. The two arrows show two moles that are moved down when the skin is tightened.

Tummy Tuck Consultations

Abdominoplasty is one of the most satisfying procedures I perform. The results of tightening the abdominal muscles, removing excess fat and excision of loose skin speak for themselves.
