Tummy Tuck Benefits
Patients who opt for tummy tuck surgery can look forward to many benefits.
Comfort and ease of movement
Tummy tuck surgery removes the excess skin that causes discomfort when exercising, wearing tight clothing, and going about your daily activities.
Improved skin quality
Excess skin and skin folds can cause painful chafing and rashes. With the excess skin gone, skin will heal and repair itself for overall improved comfort.
While removing excess skin is the main goal of a Beverly Hills tummy tuck, there is also an art to creating natural contours and curves around the trunk. Dr. Lahar will ensure your abdomen and back look natural and flattering instead of fake or unnaturally flat.
A more attractive navel
Tummy tuck surgery can also help patients achieve a more attractive and natural-looking belly button that sits in the ideal location on the abdomen.
The majority of tummy tuck patients opt for liposuction as well. This simple procedure will remove hard-to-lose fat from around the trunk and flanks.
Dr. Lahar will ensure that your tummy tuck scars are unobtrusive and practically invisible. Navel scars will be hidden within the belly button recess, and lower lateral scars will be situated beneath the underwear line — virtually invisible even in briefs or bikini bottoms.
Most of all, Beverly Hills tummy tuck patients can feel more confident about themselves after surgery. This procedure has an extremely high satisfaction rate. Patients report more confidence and a better overall quality of life after their tummy tucks.
Tummy Tuck Incisions
Nearly all tummy tuck patients need at least one significant incision, which runs from hip to hip within the pubic hairline. This incision, when healed, will be invisible as it sits so low. Certain tummy tucks, such as the fleur de lis tummy tuck, also require a vertical incision.
