Body Lift in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills
Tummy Tuck After Massive Weight Loss
There are many types of abdominoplasty in Los Angeles that are performed on daily basis in the realm of plastic surgery in Los Angeles. Most weight loss patients often benefit from a circumferential abdominoplasty in Los Angeles with or without a Fleur-de-lis component (vertical incision). Circumferential abdominoplasty, also known as a belt abdominoplasty, is reserved for those patients who present with lower body laxity. The typical patient is unhappy with the looseness of her/his abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. The circumferential abdominoplasty in Los Angeles creates incisions that span the patient's lower back. Through these incisions, the excess abdominal, waist, and lower back tissue are removed. The buttocks and outer thighs are elevated and the abdominoplasty in Los Angeles procedure is completed.
Some patients may need an Inverted-T or Fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty. This procedure combines a vertical resection of excess abdominal tissue with that of the horizontal resection that the circumferential abdominoplasty in Los Angeles offers. The vertical incision of Fleur-de-lis is reserved for those rare patients who have been able to drop significant weight and need a substantial quantity of skin and tissue removed. The patients often present with both vertical and circumferential abdominal tissue laxity and have been able to drop their hour-glass look due to fullness of the waist and sides. Whereas the vertical incision removes excess circumferential tissue, the horizontal resection removes excess vertical tissue. Fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty in Los Angeles is also suitable for those patients who already have a midline incision due to previous abdominal surgery, such as gall bladder surgery or open gastric bypass surgery in Los Angeles.
