The mid-section is one of the many parts of the body that both men and women can take issue with due to it’s stubborn hold on 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 of your midsection.
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure used to correct a protruding abdomen resulting from weak abdominal muscles, and excess, sagging skin left over from weight loss 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 by removing unwanted, stubborn fat cells.
It is important to note that andominoplasty 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 if you can benefit from San Diego abdominoplasty.
