If you have given birth, been pregnant, lost or gain excessive weight, or simply lost elasticity in your tummy, an abdominoplasty can help restore your youthful contour and appearance. Michael S. Schwartz, MD is a cosmetic surgeon who performs tummy tucks on men and women in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and the surrounding areas.
It is not uncommon for fat and excessive skin to develop around your midsection as you age. A number of factors can contribute to the development of this stubborn fat, including pregnancy or a fluctuation in weight. Thankfully, a tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, can help you achieve the tight, toned figure from your youth! During the procedure, Dr. Schwartz expertly trims away unwanted fat and tissue from your tummy, which results in a smooth, taut silhouette.
An abdominoplasty can help repair lax skin, diminished skin elasticity, and drooping skin around the midsection. To see the results of an abdominoplasty of real patients of Dr. Schwartz, check out our before and after gallery of pictures.
