Abdominoplasty Palo Alto
If you have excess skin and fat surrounding your abdomen that you cannot get rid of with regular diet and exercise, you might want to consider a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) from Bay Area plastic surgeon George W. Commons, M.D., F.A.C.S. At Palo Alto Center for Plastic Surgery, he offers extensive training and experience.
Dr. Commons is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Practicing plastic surgery in Palo Alto for over 25 years, Dr. Commons is a member of numerous professional associations, such as the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
What are the benefits of tummy tuck surgery (“abdominoplasty”)?
A tummy tuck procedure is performed in order to remove excess skin and fat, alleviate the appearance of stretch marks, and repair separated rectus (abdominal) muscles. In some instances, an abdominoplasty is performed in conjunction with liposuction, in such cases where the candidate is overweight by 50 to 100 pounds.
Am I a good candidate for abdominoplasty?
- Do you have loose, hanging skin in the abdomen region (hanging panniculus)?
- Are you physically and psychologically healthy?
- Do you have realistic expectations?
- Do you have future plans of getting pregnant?
- Do you know the risks and benefits of abdominoplasty?
- Are you currently on a regular diet and exercise plan, or plan on starting one?
If you are a good candidate for an abdominoplasty, Bay Area cosmetic surgeon Dr. Commons can discuss your options with you during an appointment.
