New Year, New Mid-Section!

Published on December 27, 2012

Welcome to the new year! We’re so glad you made it!

The new year is a great time to evaluate where you are at in your life and what changes you want to make. A lot of times we realize there were things we’ve been putting at the top of our resolution lists year after year without ever achieving them. For a lot of people “lose weight” is just such a resolution. Diet and exercise are extremely important for healthy living, in addition to helping us feel happier and more confident in our bodies. That said, even those who exercise religiously and eat a healthy diet can be dissatisfied with parts of their bodies. Women who’ve given birth are often left with sagging extra skin around the midsection and abdominal muscles which have been stretched out. Similarly, drastic weight loss can also lead to excess sagging skin around the mid-section.

For these people an abdominoplasty may be the best way to create the mid-section they desire for the new year. Also known as a tummy tuck, abdominioplasty removes excess skin, tightens the abdominal muscles and creates a firmer, flatter tummy. Sometimes abdominoplasty is done in conjunction with liposuction to suck out stubborn fat cells in the abdominal region. To learn more, we encourage you to contact our office to schedule a consultation to find out if a San Diego tummy tuck may be right for you!
