Tummy Tuck in Danville, CA
Dr. Robert G. Aycock Offers Tummy Tuck Procedures to the Residents of Danville, CA.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess fat and skin from your abdomen. Many of our patients in Danville, California have stubborn fat deposits on their stomachs that are resistant to diet and exercise. Women often have these fat deposits after pregnancy. Some of our patients lose significant amounts of weight, but cannot reduce the last few inches. Heredity also plays a role in your ability to lose fat on your abdomen.
How is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
Dr. Aycock performs two types of tummy tuck procedures – a complete tummy tuck and a partial tummy tuck. The complete tummy tuck is the most extensive procedure and removes fat and skin from above and below your belly button. If you only have fat below your belly button, Dr. Aycock may recommend a partial tummy tuck.
In most cases, Dr. Aycock makes an incision across the abdomen, from hip bone to hip bone. We inform our patients that the tummy tuck procedure creates a significant scar. After the incision is made, Dr. Aycock removes the excess skin and fat from the treatment area and closes the incision.
