17 Jan Your Tummy Tuck Options Explained
Your stomach can be the hardest part of the body to contour. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how many sit-ups or crunches you do, or plates of vegetables you eat, you’re still able to pinch-an-inch on your midsection. A tummy tuck from John Park MD Plastic Surgery is a great way to trim and tone your abdomen to achieve that sleek, sculpted torso finally. However, depending on your specific needs you have options when it comes to electing to have a tummy tuck.
Get Rid of Your Lower Pooch With a Mini Tummy Tuck
Many women struggle with the dreaded pooch below the navel. It’s almost turned into a sign of aging because it’s so common amongst older women. This usually occurs as a result of pregnancy and the stretching of the abdominal skin. Once the baby is born, the skin is unable to retract back because it has lost its elasticity. Unfortunately, no amount of exercise can eliminate the loose skin.
The good news is, however, if you only have a little bit of excess skin and it’s below your navel you can achieve successful abdominal results with a mini tummy tuck performed by Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. John Park. A mini tummy tuck uses a much smaller incision, and the belly button does not have to be repositioned. Recovery time is also less. You get the same outstanding results but with less work.
Achieve A Full Abdominal Transformation With A Full Tummy Tuck
A full tummy tuck is used for extreme cases of significant loose skin and weakened abdominal muscles. This tummy tuck option is ideal for people who have lost a lot of weight and women who suffered from muscle separation during pregnancy and are in need of muscle repair. A full tummy tuck addresses the entire abdominal region and removes large folds of skin.
Usually, during a full tummy tuck, liposuction is utilized to remove any excess fatty deposits that have proven resistant to even your best efforts at eating right and working out. Following liposuction, the abdominal muscles are tightened with sutures before the remaining skin is pulled tight. A full tummy tuck can virtually give you a new midsection that you didn’t know you could have.
