Dr. Esmailian’s Orange County Abdominoplasty, and tummy tuck services begin by making an incision just above the pubis which extends out usually from hip to hip. A second incision is made around the navel if loose skin is also found in the upper abdominal area. The skin and fat are elevated off of the underlying muscles. The underlying muscles are usually stretched as a result of pregnancy, or massive weight gain and weight loss as can happen after massive weight loss surgery (gastric bypass). The underlying laxity of the muscles are addressed by suturing and tightening which results in an improved contour. The skin is then pulled downwards, a new opening for the belly button is made and the excess loose skin is removed. The result is a tighter flatter abdomen with reduction and perhaps elimination of the stretch marks. In addition, liposuction is often performed of the waist and flanks to contour the abdominal region even further.
Mini-abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) may be performed for patients that have loose lower abdominal skin, with minimal laxity of the underlying muscles. In a mini tummy tuck, there is no incision around the belly button and the lower abdominal incision if often smaller.
