Orange County Tummy Tuck surgeon Daniel Reichner, M.D.,FACS, a double,
surgeon in Orange County and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons often performs
one of the most requested plastic surgeries, the
tummy tuck, or
abdominoplasty, which creates a flatter, less protruding stomach.
Abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck," is a surgical procedure to
remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles
of the abdominal wall. This procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.
If you're considering abdominoplasty, Dr. Reichner can help you determine if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
He will design a specific surgical plan based on your body shape, skin elasticity and percentage body fat. He believes in a unique approach
to preparing for abdominoplasty. Dr. Reichner's approach emphasizes a special diet, light daily exercises, special healing vitamins and
nutritional supplements. This preparation will promote better healing and optimize your results. During your consultation, Dr. Reichner will
discuss his abdominoplasty program, give you a good understanding of how the procedure can help you and the results you can expect.
Everyone is different and your consultation with Dr. Reichner will help you understand the procedure and if Tummy Tuck
is right for you.
Dr. Reichner recommends Tummy Tucks
for Orange County and Newport Beach area residents who complain that:
- Diet and exercise won't change that paunch.
- Normal everyday activity slows you down.
- Clothing is hard to buy.
- Your body looks and feels older than you really are.
A standard abdominoplasty takes 2 to 4 hours depending on the amount
of skin and fat to be removed. A "mini" tummy tuck usually takes on 1 to 2 hours.
Most commonly, a low bikini-line incision is made from hipbone to hipbone. The standard
tummy tuck involves an incision to free the navel from surrounding tissue. The mini
abdominoplasty has a shorter incision and the navel usually is not moved.
The standard tummy tuck trims excess skin and fat while surgically repairing stretched
stomach muscles. A mini-tummy tuck is less invasive and indicated when most of the patient's
excess skin, fat and stretch marks are found below the belly button.
In addition to offering one of Orange County's most popular cosmetic
surgery and tummy tuck procedures, Dr. Reichner also offers other advanced plastic surgeries
in Orange County like rhinoplasty,
breast augmentation and
What's New in Tummy Tuck Surgery?
In Orange County the Abdominoplasty
(commonly know as a Tummy Tuck) has evolved over the years. Today there are many new techniques
and principles that have refined the procedure and improved the cosmetic results.
Good Orange County Tummy Tucks
have a low scar that can be hidden below the bikini line. This requires careful planning
and proper incision placement. The old saying "measure twice and cut once" is very
appropriate in abdominoplasty.
Good Orange County Tummy Tucks have
a naval or "belly button" that is cute, an "inney", hides the scar and
allows one to wear a bathing suite without any reservations.
Good Orange County Tummy Tucks have
a flat or nearly flat abdomen. This is important to women and allows them to feel good wearing
the latest fashions.
Good Orange County Tummy Tucks enhance
the waist area by providing more of a "hour-glass" figure. This is accomplished by
tightening the muscle and removing excess fat from the "hip-roll" areas with liposuction.
An advanced technology for liposuction is available to remove this excess fat with minimal
extra incisions. The technology is called PAL, which has vastly improved the amount of fat that
can be removed with minimal bleeding and bruising.
