Many people like to collect things… cards, antiques, stamps, etc. Parts of our body like to collect things as well, namely fat. The body area this happens in changes from person to person depending mostly on genetics, but for some people, the abdomen may be the area that is most susceptible to gaining and holding on to fat making it difficult to get rid of even with diet and exercise. Women who’ve given birth may also have a difficult time getting their mid-sections back to pre-baby form and may deal with excess sagging skin. Weight loss and gain and also contribute to problems in the mid-section and even abdominal muscles can become weak, stretched out or separated causing the abdomen to hang out further than it would normally.
Dr. Mofid can help both men and women improve their mid-section through Abdominoplasty, also known as a Tummy Tuck. During a Tummy Tuck procedure, Dr. Mofid removes excess skin and fatty tissue and tightens the abdominal muscles. He then closes the remaining skin creating a tighter, firmer, more contoured waist. The incision is generally made in a u-shape along the area that will be hidden by your underwear. In some cases, Liposuction may also be used to removed pockets of stubborn fat.
Abdominoplasty is not a form of weight loss. It is ideal for patients who are in good health and have realistic expectations. Contact our office to schedule your consultation and learn more about how you can benefit from San Diego Abdominoplasty.
