Los Angeles Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery Before and After Photos | Dev Wali MD | Tummy Tuck Los Angeles

Published on July 24, 2012

With traditional Los Angeles tummy tucks, the abdominal skin is pulled so far downward that it is necessary to reposition the belly button to keep it centrally located. This results in a circular scar around the belly button and a dramatic improvement in abdominal contour. The traditional tummy tuck is the best solution for most people. For patients who require less skin excision, it may be possible to “float” the belly button.

This means that the belly button will remain attached to the skin and will be pulled downward with the skin. The belly button, however, is not moved so far as to require a circular incision for repositioning. It is also possible to tighten the muscles of the upper and lower abdomen with this procedure. Floating the belly button may result in significantly improved abdominal contour, but the results are not as dramatic as with the Los Angeles tummy tuck.
