Our abdomen is one of the many parts of the body that likes to collect fat. Once fat has made it’s self at home around the midsection, it is often very difficult to get rid of through traditional diet and exercise. Additionally, abdominal muscles that have become weak or separated may need help returning to a normal position. San Diego Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Mofid uses abdominoplasty to improve the appearance of your midsection.
Abdominoplasty, or more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is used to correct a protruding abdomen resulting from weak abdominal muscles, weight gain or pregnancy. Using abdominoplasty, Dr. Mofid is able to tighten abdominal muscles and excess fatty tissue and skin are removed improving the body contour. Liposuction can be used in conjunction with abdominoplasty to produce optimal results.
It is important to note that abdominoplasty is not a form of weight loss. Patients who benefit from abdominoplasty are in good health and relatively good shape. Contact our office to schedule your consultation and learn more about how you can benefit from San Diego tummy tuck surgery.
