About Tummy Tuck Surgery
For adult individuals, sagging skin and unwanted fat in the abdomen can be frustrating and challenging despite attempts to reduce it. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging are the typical reasons why someone may not be able to regain a tighter and slimmer tummy. An abdominoplasty is a cosmetic enhancement that reshapes the stomach area, producing attractive results for patients. Plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann performs abdominoplasty that is tailored to the condition of the abdomen and to the safety and comfort needs of the patient. This popular surgery at Schoemann Plastic Surgery allows individuals the chance to have a toned, tighter abdomen and restored confidence. Dr. Schoemann is a double board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon equipped to provide exceptional plastic surgery results to Encinitas, CA area patients.
Ideal Candidates for Tummy Tuck Surgery
Abdominoplasty can be successful for both women and men. If you cannot lose weight or reduce sagging skin or unwanted fat in the stomach, this cosmetic surgery can help create a tighter and slimmer look. Dr. Schoemann suggests patients be at a stable weight prior to surgery. Abdominoplasty should not be used to help you lose weight — it surgically corrects loose skin. Liposuction is usually implemented during surgery to reduce fat. If your abdomen has healthy skin laxity, but you are still unhappy with the appearance of your midsection even though you have worked to lose weight, you may be an ideal candidate for liposuction. Women considering this treatment should be beyond their childbearing years to ensure the surgical outcome is not affected.
