Tummy Tuck FAQs

How does tummy tuck work?

Dr. Fahradyan makes an incision in the lower abdomen, removing excess skin and fatty tissue to eliminate the sagging appearance and unwanted fat deposits. Next, the abdominal muscles, which may have stretched or separated due to factors like pregnancy or weight fluctuations, are tightened and sutured together. This creates a firmer abdominal wall and enhances the patient’s overall silhouette. The final result of a tummy tuck in Thousand Oaks is a flatter abdomen.

Can a tummy tuck help with weight loss?

Tummy tucks are not intended as a weight loss method. While they remove excess fat and skin, their primary purpose is to enhance the appearance of the abdominal area. Patients are encouraged to achieve their target weight before undergoing the procedure.

Will a tummy tuck leave visible scars?

Yes, a tummy tuck does involve incisions, which will result in scars. However, Dr. Fahradyan will try to place incisions discreetly and provide post-operative scar care instructions to help minimize their appearance over time. The scar can usually be concealed under a bikini.

How long do the results of a tummy tuck last?

The results of a tummy tuck can be long-lasting if patients maintain a healthy lifestyle. While the surgery removes excess skin and fat, it does not prevent future weight gain or the effects of aging. Proper diet and exercise are essential for maintaining the results of your tummy tuck in Thousand Oaks.
