Trim Down Your Tummy with Tucks & Liposuction

Slim down with tummy tucks and liposuction performed by Dr. Raja Srour of Doheny Sunset Surgery Center. At his surgery center in Los Angeles, California, he provides these and a variety of other cosmetic procedures for the body, including calf and buttock augmentation.

Abdominal Lipectomy or Tummy Tuck

The procedure is performed on patients who have lost marked amount of weight or following pregnancy and stretching of the abdominal skin or when the abdomen is deformed by surgeries and other pathologic conditions. The aim of tummy tucks is to correct muscle splitting and abdominal hernias by tightening the muscles and then excise the excess skin and fatty tissue. The waist line is narrowed and a better shape of the abdomen is thus created. Stretch marks below the belly button are removed in this procedure. Simultaneous liposuction of the hips and flanks is usually performed to enhance the result of the lipectomy. It may be combined with other surgeries, such as liposuction, thigh and buttock lifts, or calf and buttock augmentation for better appearance and results.

Liposuction is a procedure performed to remove localized fat deposits in different parts of the body, that are otherwise difficult to lose by dieting or exercise. Contrary to popular opinion, it is not a treatment for obesity. The art in performing this procedure is to remove the excess fat deposits leaving behind enough cushion to cover the prominences that are so important to the configuration of the body silhouette and the facial profile.

The metabolism of adipose tissue or fat is essential in the regulation of the energy balance of humans. The fat mass develops by an increase in the number and size of the fat cells. There is a gradual enlargement of each fat cell throughout life, however the number of fat cells increases mostly during childhood and adolescence. Liposuction can be performed as a sole procedure or in conjunction with other facial and body sculpturing procedures where surgical excision of excess skin is indicated.
