Tummy tuck surgery addresses stubborn fat deposits and loose, sagging skin throughout the midsection. It can also be used to firm abdominal muscles that have been separated or weakened. All of these things can produce a slim and more attractive waistline.
Los Angeles tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole utilizes advanced liposuction techniques to remove excess fat deposits from the abdomen and waist area during this procedure. By removing these deposits of fat, the natural contours of the waist become more visible. Additional slimming is achieved by removing sagging skin from the mid-body after fat has been eliminated. However, the tightening of abdominal muscles may produce the most profound impact on waist size.
When abdominal muscles are tightened, they naturally make the entire midsection slimmer. By removing subcutaneous fat along with tightening muscles, the appearance of the abdominal area, including the waist, is greatly improved.
Tummy tuck and mini-tummy tuck surgery may both help slim the waistline and produce a more defined abdominal area. During your tummy tuck consultation, Dr. O’Toole will happily answer any questions you have about tummy tuck surgery and provide you with honest information about what you can expect from this procedure.
