Orange County Abdominoplasty
Having a baby, losing a lot of weight and general aging can leave a person with excess skin that typically settles in the midsection. Even though dieting and exercise can help you reduce the layer of fat beneath this skin, many people end up with excess skin that they feel detracts from their looks. An abdominoplasty can help eliminate this excess skin in a single office visit and leave the patient with a tighter and more natural looking abdomen.
The type of abdominoplasty a patient has will vary from person to person and is mostly dependant on where the excess skin is and the quantity. Dr. Sadati has been offering this procedure for some time in Newport Beach and has the experience to guide his patients to the right procedure for them. This experience is critical to ensure you have the exact right procedure and are completely pleased with the results.
If you simply lost some weight from dieting and exercise, you might be able to have a mini-abdominoplasty performed to correct for minor excess skin. Pregnancy may have left you with a larger amount of excess skin that is more widespread. There are two procedures called modified abdominoplasty and full abdominoplasty that can help correct for this type of situation. The choice between these two will be determined through your initial consultation with Dr. Sadati and depend on the amount and location of the skin you want to address.
Many times a patient will combine a limited liposuction procedure with their abdominoplasty to help reduce the layer of fat beneath the skin. This allows them to slim their waist and abdomen while also having the surface skin adjusted to match their new waistline. Combining these two procedures enables the patient to enjoy a fairly significant cosmetic transformation and reduce the time needed for healing.
For a more extensive transformation, especially after aggressive dieting for rapid weight loss, some patients elect to have their abdominal wall muscles tightened. This is to help correct for the stretching that naturally occurred to support the excess weight that has now been lost. This muscle wall can be tightened to reflect the new waistline and help better define the abdominal muscles as well.
