					Tummy Tuck Surgeon in San Francisco




In San Francisco tummy tuck procedures are one of the most popular requests a San Francisco plastic
surgeon hears. When diets and exercise fail to give you the shape you desire, it is becoming more and
more common for people to resort to surgical measures. A tummy tuck is most often requested after a
patient has lost a lot of weight but is unhappy with their new appearance because loose, sagging skin
remains. When patients are unhappy with stubborn pouches of fat that gather in problem areas, such as
the lower abdomen, inner thighs, or butt, they often resort to liposuction and body contouring. It is
becoming very trendy for mothers who don’t plan on having more children to receive a tummy tuck
shortly after giving birth.

San Francisco liposuction patients should choose their doctor carefully, as body contouring is an art and
some surgeons are much more skilled than others. When choosing a plastic surgeon, seek out patients
who have already gone through the procedure so you can ask questions regarding your fears and
expectations of your doctor. Speak to a few different board certified surgeons until you find one who
you feel comfortable with who is patient and understanding, rather than just trying to make a sell. Your
surgeon should give explicit details on what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. Patients
are generally required to spend one night in a care facility following a tummy tuck.

During a traditional tummy tuck fat is not removed, but instead the loose skin is cut and the remaining
skin is stitched up, which also reduces the appearance of stretch marks. An incision is made in the lower
abdomen area, from the hip to the pelvic area. Liposuction actually removes fat cells from the body, so
that even if you do gain a few pounds back, it will most likely settle in a different area. After a tummy
tuck and liposuction patients have to wear a compression garment for about a month. It takes
approximately two weeks for the pain to subside, during which time the patient takes prescription pain
killers. Strenuous activity must be avoided for six weeks following the surgery, and it generally takes
several months for the swelling to completely subside. When opting for a tummy tuck or liposuction San
Francisco plastic surgeons have a lot of experience in safely slimming and shaping your body.
