Tummy Tuck for large women in California is not just a matter of luxury, but at times, a matter of health necessity for plus size women who want to improve their lives. Removal of large hanging tummy folds with tummy tuck not only causes weight loss but also enables plus size women to function better. As a tummy tuck specialist for large women, I find plus size tummy tuck to be more challenging and complicated that regular tummy tuck, but a body contouring procedure that can dramatically enhance a plus size woman’s figure.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

Women with a large frame can either have a normal or a high Body Mass Index (BMI) depending on their height and body fat index. Tummy tuck for heavy or large women involves liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and lower back, in addition to a High Tension Abdominoplasty. This type of Abdominoplasty for large women not only removes loose skin folds but also tightens the stretched abdominal muscles and pulls up the sagging thighs and buttocks. It is different than a body lift for large women in that its tummy tuck scar does not go to the back.

The cost of tummy tuck for large women is usually more than the price of standard tummy tuck because it includes additional liposuction, and it is also a longer and more complicated procedure. That is why before you pay for or finance your tummy tuck you should make sure that your plastic surgeon is indeed a specialist in tummy tuck for large women. Also, read plastic surgery or tummy tuck reviews. Find out if your plastic surgeon utilizes an accredited surgery center and a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist who is skilled in dealing with medical issues of the obese.
