One of the most popular body contouring procedures for Orange County patients is abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck. It can restore a youthful contour to an abdomen left sagging by significant weight loss or multiple pregnancies, and straighten the pelvis to improve posture.
During a tummy tuck, our top Newport Beach plastic surgeon will remove flabby skin and fat from the abdomen and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. This procedure requires an incision from hip to hip, but it can be located low enough that the resulting tummy tuck scar will be hidden by a moderate bikini bottom. Shorter incision options for the tummy tuck are possible and would be discussed with your Newport Beach plastic surgeon.
In addition to providing a flatter, firmer abdomen, the tightened muscles created by the tummy tuck help straighten the lower torso, improving the posture.
At Newport Center for Special Surgery, we offer a new form of local anesthesia that can enhance your after tummy tuck recovery during that critical first 24 to 72 hours after surgery. Your Newport Beach plastic surgeon can inject this long lasting numbing medicine directly into the surgical site during the procedure when you are asleep. When you wake-up, this numbing medicine will be working to reduce your post surgical discomfort for several days so you can walk and breathe more easily. Studies have shown that Exparel TM local anesthetic injection can reduce the amount of opioid pain pills needed after tummy tuck surgery, and thus can reduce opioid pain medication related side effects such as nausea, dizziness, constipation and itchiness after Tummy tuck surgery. This amazing pain relieving technology has made our Newport Beach tummy tuck patients much more comfortable in their tummy tuck recovery period.
