Tummy Pooch procedures at Restore SD Plastic Surgery
Why do I have a lower belly pooch?
How do I get rid of lower belly fat?
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that may include repair of the stretched-out muscles of the abdomen, removal of extra skin and fat, as well as improved appearance of stretch marks. The best candidates for tummy tuck are healthy, at a stable weight, engaged in a regular nutrition and exercise program, and are finished having children. Before you get too far into researching tummy tuck surgery in San Diego, it is important to realize that tummy tuck surgery is designed as a body contouring procedure and not intended to be a weight loss procedure.
Do I need surgery to fix my lower belly pooch?
There are many quick fixes, creams, and non-surgical body contouring treatments advertised that claim to erase stretch marks, tighten skin, and flatten your stomach. These non-surgical treatments have tremendous variability and do not have the proven durability or immediate results of surgery. Clean eating and hitting the gym are important in helping you achieve a weight loss goal, but you may find that you still have a stubborn pooch. Tummy tuck, with or without liposuction, is the most effective means of treating excess skin, fat, muscle separation (diastasis recti), and removal of stretch marks.
How do I know which procedure is right for me?
There are many surgical and non-invasive options being advertised for body shaping, body contouring, and skin tightening these days, so it is important to do your homework and understand what the best option is for you as an individual. The best place to start is an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area. At Restore SD Plastic Surgery, we utilize the Vectra 3D imaging system to demonstrate simulated results on your own body and help you decide on the best course of action. Knowing your options and how the popular non-invasive treatments really work is extremely important. For example, the results of Coolsculpting take months to become apparent and require multiple expensive treatments to be effective.
If you decide that surgery is for you, it is important to know that tummy tuck has a few variations. Your surgeon will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is best suited to your body type, goals, and timeline. The tummy tuck options include:
- Standard tummy tuck
- Extended tummy tuck
- Mini tummy tuck
Any of these options may be combined with liposuction to further improve and refine your results.
