Tummy Tuck

Tighten Up Your Waistline With A Tummy Tuck


A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes that excess fat and skin, and also restores weakened or separated muscles so that you can have a smoother and firmer stomach area. Patients choose to enhance their appearance with a tummy tuck because pregnancy, aging, weight fluctuation, heredity, or even prior surgery has left them with excess fat and skin that diet and exercise can’t get rid of. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.

A flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportional with your body style and weight can enhance your appearance and build your self-confidence. You may be a candidate for a tummy tuck if you are physically healthy and at a stable weight. You should also have realistic expectations, be a nonsmoker, and are likely not satisfied by the appearance of your tummy.

Sometimes in order to achieve your desired look, surgery is the best option. Our affiliation with the board-certified plastic surgeons at Kevitch, Chung & Jan gives you access to a full range of surgical solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions: Tummy Tuck

The amount of weight you can lose varies from patient to patient. The first step is always a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your expectations and desired outcomes, health, and lifestyle, and help determine the right course for you.
A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. You should make the appropriate lifestyle changes to ensure your new weight stays at your post surgery level.
It cannot correct stretch marks, although these may be removed or improved if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised. Also, if you’ve had a C-section the existing scars may be incorporated into the new scar.
Tummy tuck surgery flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall. Doctors refer to this surgery as abdominoplasty.
A tummy tuck can produce a flatter abdominal wall by tightening the abdominal muscles. Liposuction is appropriate for patients who have abdominal muscles that have not been excessively stretched out of shape by pregnancy. A tummy tuck can remove excessive amounts of loose abdominal skin.
The hours in surgery depends on the size of the patient. The average tummy tuck takes approximately 1-2 hours. Larger surgeries can take 3-4 hours depending upon the amount of skin to be removed, contouring of the hips, and the thighs (if necessary).
