Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty Surgery San Diego

Published on November 22, 2013

Tummy TuckIf you’ve been considering a tummy tuck but don’t know much about it, doing a bit of research will be helpful. Here’s some information to get you started.

To begin a tummy tuck procedure, a wide horizontal incision is made from one hipbone to the other, at the pubic hairline. This curved line dips downward in the center. After this access area has been created, the surgeon is free to lift the covering skin, take out fatty tissues, and bring the abdominal muscles closer together.

While researching the tummy tuck procedure will make a difference, setting up a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon will be the best way to fully understand it. Speak with Dr. Mark Mofid, a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience, to find out more.
