Tummy Tuck Palo Alto

Different surgical procedures allow one to change the contour and shape the breasts, abdomen, and other parts of the body. These body contouring procedures include, Ultrasonic Liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck); thigh, buttock, and arms, breast reductions, breast lift, and others.

The success of these procedures depends in great part on your age, general health, and the shape, size, and skin quality of the area to be treated. Often a combination of procedure will be used to alter one particular area.

For example, ultrasonic liposuction and our Bay Area tummy tuck procedures will often be used together to re-contour the abdomen and waist area. Abdominoplasty is a commonly performed surgical procedure to get rid of excess skin and fat in the tummy area and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. In patients who have had one or more pregnancies, or who have lost large amounts of weight, the skin and fat in the abdomen can become loose and flaccid and no amount of exercise will alter this condition. Additionally, because the muscles of the abdomen have been stretched, the intestines can push forward from the inside, creating an unsightly abdominal bulge.

Abdominoplasty can tighten these muscles to help create a flat, firm abdominal wall. At the same time, any excess loose, hanging skin and fat is removed. Frequently liposuction will be combined with abdominoplasty to remove unwanted fat from the hips and other areas. Our tummy tuck in San Jose is a popular operation for both women and men.
