To know if a tummy tuck is the best option for you compared to other similar procedures, several factors come into play. Women who come into Dr. Sajjadian’s Costa Mesa office interested in a tummy tuck procedure undergo a thorough evaluation and consultation to find out their specific needs and wants. After hearing our clients’ goals we move on to evaluating the abdominal tissues involved. Taking into account their age, the degree of skin elasticity, etc…
Women who are young and have not been through massive weight loss or pregnancy, will likely not have significant amount of stretched out and sagging skin and therefore a full tummy tuck is probably not needed. Alternatives to the traditional tummy tuck include various types of ultrasonic assisted liposuction, which assist with mild skin tightening and a small amount of fat removal. And sometime it’s a better option for those wanting to avoid a tummy tuck scar. Another option is the Brazilian tummy tuck which use short scar techniques to tighten the muscles, remove fat, and remove some skin. Brazilian tummy tucks are done with endoscopic tools and ultrasonic liposuction to achieve their end results.
Of course, as with the majority of cosmetic surgeries and other procedures it is very individualized and all the details need to be evaluated in order to design the procedure uniquely for you. It’s also always a great idea to look through as many of Dr. Sajjadian’sbefore and after pictures as possible preferable of women who have “before” pictures similar to how you currently look. This will give you a good idea of what your results may look like. We have numerous before and after pictures here in our Costa Mesa office and on our website.
