Tummy Tuck For a slimmer, tighter core

Who should have an abdominoplasty?

If you are one of the millions of men and women who struggle with unwanted abdominal fat, loose, saggy skin around the stomach and weak belly muscles, a surgical cosmetic procedure known as a tummy tuck may be the ideal solution for your needs. Changes in the abdomen can occur for a variety of reasons, including aging and pregnancy, but regardless of the cause, an unattractive midsection can lower self-confidence, make it difficult to wear certain clothes, and lead to significant frustration, especially when diet and exercise have failed to make a difference. Considered to be one of the top providers of the tummy tuck Los Angeles & Beverly Hills have to offer, a tummy tuck can firm, tone and beautifully contour the abdomen for a more shapely and youthful appearance.

The tummy tuck can be performed alone, or in conjunction with additional body contouring procedures. Often it is a component of the popular Mommy Makeover, which may also include breast revision surgery and liposuction. If you are interested in a more comprehensive outcome, your doctor can discuss the options with you during consultation, as combining treatments may minimize necessary incisions and scarring while also cutting down on recovery times.

What should I expect from tummy tuck surgery?

The tummy tuck procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately 1-3 hours on average. You will undergo surgery at our own operating facility in Los Angles, accredited by the AAAASF and outfitted with the very latest in state-of-the-art equipment and technology.

During a full tummy tuck, the doctor will create an incision stretching from hip to hip, through which he will be able to remove excess fat, skin and tissue from the abdomen. An additional incision may be made at the naval. The doctor will lift the skin off the stomach muscles in order to tighten them, using sutures to anchor them into their new position. The result is a trimmer waistline and a tighter 'six-pack.'

An alternative to a full abdominoplasty is the mini tummy tuck, which addresses the region between the belly button and the pubic bone where many people tend to manifest an undesirable protrusion. The mini tummy tuck is less invasive and has a quicker recovery time.
