If you are considering undergoing a tummy tuck here in Los Angeles, it is available here at Dr. Wali‘s plastic surgery practice. A tummy tuck can provide a solution to those looking to reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, addresses this problem by not only removing excess skin and fat, but also by tightening the abdominal muscles, therefore, reestablishing the integrity of the abdominal wall.
This procedure can be helpful to those that have experienced a pregnancy or rapid weight gain and weight loss. These events cause stretching of the abdominal skin as well as the underlying muscles. This results not only in visible stretch marks and loss of skin elasticity, but also in weakening of the abdominal wall.
