Tummy Tuck in San Diego, CA

What Is A Tummy Tuck?

There are few things in life more frustrating than looking at yourself in the mirror and seeing loose, saggy skin hanging off of your stomach. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are among the most common reasons why you may have difficulty trying to reclaim a slim, tight tummy. A tummy tuck (also called abdominoplasty) is a skin tightening procedure focused on transforming the stomach area for a firmer, taut appearance. At Rodriguez Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jose Rodriguez performs customized tummy tuck surgery based on each patient's needs and goals. This popular procedure empowers individuals to rediscover their confidence with a redefined physique. Learn more about how abdominoplasty can reshape your physique by scheduling a consultation at our San Diego, CA plastic surgery office.

How Does A Tummy Tuck Work?

Tummy tuck surgery is performed at our facility's operating room with general anesthesia. There are several potential approaches Dr. Rodriguez may take, depending on your goals and the condition of your skin. For starters, the incision shape is selected based on the quantity of excess skin. Some individuals with severe sagging and loose skin may require an extended tummy tuck. This abdominoplasty technique places the incision from hip bone to hip bone, just on top of the pubic region. Other patients who are concerned with minimal skin looseness may be better suited for a mini tummy tuck. These patients still benefit from tummy tuck surgery but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of the technique used, all abdominoplasty procedures at Rodriguez Plastic Surgery involve the removal of hanging skin and liposuction.
