Tummy Tuck in San Diego

A loose, sagging abdominal appearance can negatively impact your confidence. Tummy tuck surgery provides hundreds of thousands of women and men with firm, attractive abdomens every year. People choose tummy tuck surgery to enhance their abdominal appearance when diet and exercise no longer yield results for them. If you lack confidence and comfort with your appearance due to a lax abdomen, tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Pollack in San Diego may be the right procedure for you.

What Can a Tummy Tuck Achieve?

  • A flatter belly
  • A firmer abdomen
  • A toned appearance
  • A slimmer waist
  • Restoration of your pre-pregnancy appearance
  • Increased confidence and satisfaction with your body

Why Do Patients Choose Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Pregnancy has left you with loose abdominal muscles and the appearance of a belly pooch.

Recent weight loss has resulted in an excess of irritating, unattractive abdominal skin.

The natural aging process has caused laxity in the abdominal area, and you wish to restore a more youthful appearance.

Natural diet and exercise have ceased to provide you with the toned and defined results you desire.

Full Tummy Tuck

• Ideal for the treatment of weight-loss and age-related laxity
• Suitable for most women following pregnancy
• An incision is placed low on the abdomen along the top of the pubic hairline, and a secondary incision is placed around the navel
• Skin is separated from the abdominal muscles, and excess tissue is removed
• Loose abdominal muscles are tightened to restore the contour of the abdomen

Mini Tummy Tuck

• Ideal for women with minimal excess skin
• A single incision is placed low on the abdomen just above the pubic area that runs from hip to hip
• The mini tummy tuck is focused on muscle tightening and improves minor skin laxity below the belly button
