For people who are troubled by an abdominal area that is disproportionate to the rest of their body, abdominoplasty is often an ideal solution. By tightening loose or separated muscles and removing excess skin and fat, Dr. A.M. Yenikomshian is able to provide his abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) patients in the San Jose and Los Gatos areas with smoother, trimmer abdomens. Post-bariatric patients may be interested in combining abdominoplasty with other cosmetic procedures for a more comprehensive transformation.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes loose skin and pockets of fat around the abdominal area that do not respond to diet or exercise. The procedure can also tighten muscles that have been weakened or separated due to pregnancy. After bariatric surgery, a tummy tuck is often performed in conjunction with a number of other body contouring procedures to completely revitalize a person's appearance.
Men and women in good general health who have loose skin and isolated fat deposits around their midsection may benefit from tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). At his San Jose cosmetic surgery practice near Los Gatos, Dr. Yenikomshian conducts a thorough consultation to determine whether abdominoplasty is right for his patient. During this consultation, patients should inform Dr. Yenikomshian of current medical conditions and prior surgeries, as well as any medications, supplements, or other substances they are taking.
Dr. Yenikomshian performs the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure in the Los Gatos and San Jose area at an accredited ambulatory surgery center. Dr. Yenikomshian makes a horizontal incision below the naval, just above the pubic area. Through this incision, he tightens the muscles of the abdomen. He then removes fat deposits and excess skin to create a smooth abdominal contour. After closing the incision with sutures, Dr. Yenikomshian bandages the area.
After surgery, patients are urged to follow the guidelines issued to them. When properly followed, these guidelines can help ensure a speedy recovery. Patients may experience discomfort, bruising, and swelling after surgery. This is normal and should gradually subside. Temporary difficulty standing upright is also common after abdominoplasty, and patients should avoid any activities that involve bending or lifting for a few weeks.
