A flat belly and narrow waist are often seen as tokens of fitness and good health, and common knowledge says that with hard work, we can achieve the belly of our dreams. But the unfortunate truth is, it’s downright impossible for some folks to remove excess fat and skin just through diet and exercise alone. For others, pregnancy came and went, but loose skin and fat remains.
When all else has failed, a tummy tuck at The Waltzman Institute can help. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure that can help you achieve a narrow waist and tight core. And with the right surgeon, a tummy tuck can help you feel proud and confident about your body.
Dr. Josh Waltzman is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Long Beach known for cultivating an outstanding patient experience. He’s a kind, compassionate surgeon who recognizes that a tummy tuck is more than a physical improvement – feeling whole is the ultimate goal of any patient. To that end, he’ll perform your abdominoplasty with the care and attention to detail you deserve.
Our abdomen is essentially an inner girdle made up of connective tissues and muscles. This girdle, also known as your “core,” holds our internal organs in place. It’s built to grow, especially during pregnancy and weight gain.
Unfortunately, it sometimes doesn’t bounce back. After weight loss or childbirth, the patient develops excess folds of skin, stretch marks, weak abdominal muscles, and fatty deposits.
That’s what tummy tuck surgery is for; it can address the causes of a large belly and help you attain a flatter, more appealing stomach.
What a Tummy Tuck Can Do
Dr. Waltzman believes in respecting the patient’s tissues. Rather than forcing a result where it doesn’t work, he tailors the tummy tuck to the patient’s unique anatomy and contours the stomach to match aesthetically with the rest of their figure. Dr. Waltzman will consult with the patient on their goals and work to create long-lasting results that are realistically possible.
A tummy tuck procedure at The Waltzman Institute is a chance to remake your figure. It’s a major transformation that only a skilled, talented board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Waltzman can be trusted with.
