The Tummy Tuck - Abdominoplasty

Looking for a new you? Dr. Stompro mentions that Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Whether you’ve just had a baby or lost a substantial amount of weight, or just can’t shake those last stubborn pounds, a tummy tuck is a safe and effective way to regain the body you had or obtain the body you want.

During a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, the loose skin and fat in the abdominal area is removed. In the case after childbearing or weight loss, the weakness or laxity of the abdominal wall is repaired before removing the excess skin and fat. This skin and fat is then pulled and excised. The procedure is especially effective for removing stretch marks in the lower abdomen. After the remaining skin is tightened, the navel is refreshened for a natural look.

When discussing your desired look with your surgeon, there are a number of things to consider. First, while tummy tucks work well to remove stretch marks from the lower abdomen, in some cases not all stretch marks can be eliminated. It is also important to keep in mind that your safety is our doctor’s foremost concern. He will remove as much fat and skin as is safe, while considering the optimal look and healing.

You will also need to consider your skin type and age when planning with your doctor. These factors will affect the obtainable results, as will your weight. It is best if you have been at a stable weight for at least six months prior to your surgery to ensure your results can be maintained in the long run. Patients who intend to be pregnant in the near future should wait until after child bearing.

The results are very dramatic and long lasting. Your age, skin type and physical conditioning all will influence the outcome. It is important to know that the staff at the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro and Dr. Chester Cheng will always be available to answer any of your questions, before or after your surgery.

We invite you to one of our four Bay Area offices in Danville, Livermore, Hayward or Tracy to discuss a new you.
