Bay Area Doctor List

Due to pregnancy, massive weight loss, and/or aging, the abdomen may not respond well to natural means of weight loss such as diet and exercise. In order to achieve a flatter midsection, you may be interested in tummy tuck surgery. If you are in the Bay Area, a qualified plastic surgeon can help you reach your desired body contour with this procedure.

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Medically termed “abdominoplasty,” tummy tuck surgery can reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. Your tummy tuck specialist will thoroughly examine the area to be treated in order to determine which technique will be most beneficial. Based on the amount of protrusion and excess, sagging skin, a mini, traditional, extended, or circumferential abdominoplasty will be chosen.

Typically, a long incision is made in the lower abdomen from hipbone to hipbone in order to separate the skin from the underlying muscle. Your Bay Area plastic surgeon will then tighten the abdominal muscles, pull the skin down and trims away excess skin, and make a new opening for the belly button. This produces a more slender and better-contoured shape.

If you would like to achieve an overall enhancement, you may wish to inquire about liposuction and/or breast augmentation. In addition, be sure to view before and after tummy tuck photos to see examples of patient results.

Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery

The average cost of abdominoplasty surgery in the Bay Area is $7,380. This does not include surgery center fee or anesthesia fee. Please consult with your Bay Area tummy tuck surgeon for a more accurate final cost.
