Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Los Angeles Torrance Dr. Christine Petti

There are essentially two different kinds of tummy tucks which are termed abdominoplasty, and the first is a mini abdominoplasty and that is an operation that involves contouring of the lower abdomen. Many women will have had children and they have a lot of stretch in their lower abdomen, and by simply taking out the extra skin in the lower abdomen and then minimizing the scar so it lies right above the pubic hairline will allow the patient to have an excellent outcome, and then that’s often combined with liposuction of the abdomen. So you can really create a waistline and then give them a nice flat tummy from the mini abdominoplasty.
