Women in Los Angeles learn about tummy tuck recovery
Some women are bothered by their abdomen due to unsuccessful weight loss and exercise programs. Others are discontent with excess skin in the abdominal area after childbirth. Many women in Los Angeles who desire a different look drive to Fountain Valley to meet with highly sought after plastic surgeon Dr. Thuan Nguyen. The doctor can provide the ideal treatment at his practice, The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Nguyen offers tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) that can remove excess skin and unwanted fat and, in some cases, tighten the abdominal muscles.
Women who find this treatment appealing can schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Nguyen to explore their candidacy for the procedure. At the appointment, Dr. Nguyen will stress the importance of having a positive outlook but realistic expectations about treatment and recovery. Ideal candidates for tummy tuck surgery include individuals who are healthy, do not smoke, and have areas of the abdomen that have not improved with diet or exercise. If they are candidates for surgery, Dr. Nguyen explains what can be expected throughout treatment.
Before surgery, it is important patients avoid aspirin because it can increase bleeding. We will administer anesthesia to ensure the utmost comfort during the procedure. It is important for patients to arrange for someone to be with them at least for the first night after surgery. Within a week or two, patients can count on a slimmer profile and a weight loss of 5 to 10 pounds. Patients will notice their clothes are looser and may drop one to four clothing sizes.
It is important to note tummy tuck surgery is not a substitution for a weight loss program. After recovering from surgery, it will be important to exercise and have a healthy diet to maintain optimal results. After surgery, patients report feeling more confident and are motivated to maintain their new look. They might even notice significant improvements in their personal and professional lives.
Dr. Nguyen would love to help you feel more confident about your body with the right treatment. Schedule a consultation with him by calling 714-421-4022 today.
