california-tummy-tuck.JPG For those who have lost excess weight their skin may not contract, because the skin looses elasticity. This leaves loose excess skin over abdomen, which is unresponsive to diet and exercise. For this problem Dr.O'Toole, a cosmetic surgeon in Pasadena, California, performs tummy tuck surgery to remove the excess fat and loose skin. This gives a slimmer and perfect figure. But the important thing to note here is that Tummy tuck is not a weight loss device. Tummy tuck surgery is done for one who is near to his ideal weight with excess loose, sagging skin and fat.
