There is almost nothing as joyful as the addition of a child to a family, but many California women are discouraged with the look of their abdomens after childbirth. It is no wonder they turn to their plastic surgeon for help, and the good news is there is a lot of help available. Once a woman has finished having all the children she plans to have, a tummy tuck is a wonderful solution to help her get her pre-pregnancy body back into shape. The tummy tuck is one of the most popular procedures among San Francisco Bay Area women.
Along with the tummy tuck, Marin plastic surgeon, Dr. Delgado offers an additional optional procedure that he calls “the waist enhancement”. This is where he tightens additional muscles, the external oblique fascia, around the waist, giving great definition!! Not only does this pull in the waistline, it improves the shape of the upper buttocks as well. Not all surgeons do this additional procedure but Dr. Delgado has found that this procedure is the “icing on the cake” for most women. For many their result is even more impressive than their pre-pregnancy shape, with the ultimate result of the body of someone who has spent hours at the gym! Compare the photos above that do not have the additional “waist enhancement” procedure, to the photos below that do.
