Tummy Tuck in San Rafael, CA

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a procedure that aims to remove loose skin and tighten the abdominal area. It is often sought by those who have lost a large amount of weight, been through pregnancy, or have experienced loose skin and muscles following the aging process. Dr. Robert Aycock offers tummy tucks to residents of San Rafael, CA.

How is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

For a tummy tuck, the patient has a general anesthetic. Once this has been administered, an incision is made either directly above the pubic bone for a standard tummy tuck, or reaching around towards the back for an extended tuck. In some cases, only a mini tummy tuck is needed; for this, a smaller cut above the pubic line is made. Once the incision has been made, loose skin is removed, as well as small amounts of excess fat. The relevant area will be tightened, and sutures will be put in place.
