Beauty has always been defined by the presence of stunning and toned physique desired by both men and women. In today’s day and age, people have become more focused on achieving beauty goals by leading a healthy lifestyle and for troubled, stubborn areas rely on invasive and non-invasive procedures to achieve that goal. Body contouring procedures make it possible to sculpt and augment the musculature and change the way you look.
One of the way body contouring in the abdominal area is best achieved is by performing tummy tuck. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, addresses the problem of muscle laxity in the abdominal area. The abdomen is made smoother and firmer by removing extra skin and fat from the stomach area.
Tummy tuck is an excellent procedure for someone with skin wrinkling, extra fat and underlying muscle laxity. Typically, abdominoplasty is done after pregnancy or extensive weight loss, when the patient’s skin has become stretched out. Tummy tucks are often completed as part of “mommy makeover” procedures, or used in body sculpting techniques with liposuction and breast augmentations.
Cost of tummy tuck in Oxnard depends on the type of technique used to achieve the desired contour. The options include:
- • Complete Abdominoplasty – is performed if skin, soft tissue excess and muscle laxity is present extending from the lower to the upper abdominal area.
- • Mini/ Partial Abdominoplasty – is best for someone who has skin, soft tissue excess concentrated underneath the belly button or the navel area.
After removing the skin and fat from below the bellybutton, the weakened muscles are tightened, and the remaining skin is pulled down, making the stomach much flatter and tighter. Your own belly button is reattached in a aesthetically appealing location on your stomach or in some cases, a new belly button is created know as Neoumbilicus. For best results, we combine tummy tuck with liposuction, which is known as Lipoabdominoplasty.
Who is a Candidate for Tummy Tuck?
It is important to remember that tummy tuck is not a substitute for diet and exercise programs. Most men and women in good health are ideal candidates.
Tummy tuck surgery is a good solution for candidates who:
- • Are physically healthy and after weight loss have remained at a steady weight
- • Have loose sagging skin, stretch marks around the stomach area
- • Have extra stomach fat that is not improving despite diet and exercise
- • Realistic about their surgical expectations
Is Tummy Tuck the Same as Liposuction?
Tummy tuck and liposuction, alone or in combination, are considered the best surgical procedures for body sculpting. Tummy tuck targets solely the abdominal area, making it smooth, flat and well-toned. Liposuction can target any area with localized fatty deposits, like the belly fat, back rolls, love handles, thighs, chin, and arms. Stretch marks that result during and post-pregnancy can be removed by tummy tuck only.
Then what’s the difference between the two? Tummy tuck is the one and only solution when you are keen to lift up the sagging abdominal muscles that result from massive weight or is a natural post-pregnancy consequence. The other reasons are aging and natural body type of the person. The two cosmetic procedures bring the best results in body contouring when loose skin and extra fat share a mutual connection with each other.
Smoking impairs wound healing. So If you smoke, we recommend to stop using nicotine products for atleast six weeks before and after your surgery.
