Newport Beach minisil Tummy Tuck

Reverse Tummy Tuck in Newport Beach, Orange County

Most people have heard of a tummy tuck procedure, and most people can also assume that a tummy tuck can address all laxity in the abdominal area. Unfortunately this is not true, as upper skin laxity issues can only be corrected by having a reverse tummy tuck. Essentially this procedure is a tummy tuck done upside down, with the incision line falling in the inframammary fold and across the chest.

Not everyone is a candidate for this procedure, so it is essential to see a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in body contouring before preceding in your plastic surgery journey. Typically patients that are post-pregnancy, or that have lost a significant amount of weight, either by natural weight-loss or by bariatric surgery, will tend to fit the description of a reverse tummy tuck candidate.

This procedure involves the removal of excess skin of the abdomen and securing it vertically upwards towards the breasts. Some patients combine this procedure with a breast lift, leaving no scarring in the lower abdominal area, unless a mini-tummy tuck is necessary to address the lower abdominal laxity as well. This makes it easier to conceal any scarring while wearing a bikini, which is a desire for many patients after losing significant amounts of weight.
