Tummy Tuck- Pickart Plastic Surgery, Ventura CA
Dr. Pickart serves cosmetic and reconstructive surgery patients at Pickart Plastic Surgery in the Ventura and surrounding areas of California.
For many women, a flat, tone abdomen is a desire look, but can be very hard to achieve. If you have tried diet and exercise and still can’t achieve your ideal body shape, Dr. Pickart at Pickart Plastic Surgery in Ventura specializes in body contouring and offers tummy tuck procedures.
How is a tummy tuck performed in Ventura?
During tummy tuck surgery the laxity in the abdominal wall can be corrected by tightening the muscles of the stomach region with a procedure called facial plication. Excess skin and fat can be directly removed from a small incision in the low abdominal region or bikini line area. Dr. Pickart will work with you before your tummy tuck to place the incisions discreetly to create the most inconspicuous scars possible.
Additional fat can be removed using liposuction, which can allow for more detailed re-contouring of the abdomen and flank regions when performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty. A tummy tuck procedure takes approximately three to four hours.
What can I expect after a tummy tuck in Ventura?
Most tummy tuck patients feel discomfort at the incision site for approximately five to seven days. This can be counteracted with a prescribed oral pain reliever. You can expect to return to work after one week and return to your normal exercise routine after one month. It is important to attend all follow-up visits for proper recovery.
How much does a tummy tuck cost in Ventura?
