Have you have experienced pregnancy, massive weight loss, or aging and are now left with a protruding abdomen that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise? If so, you may wish to learn more regarding tummy tuck surgery. A Los Angeles plastic surgeon can help you reach your desired body contour with this procedure.

What is tummy tuck surgery?

Medically termed “abdominoplasty,” tummy tuck surgery can reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. There is a variety of techniques offered – traditional, mini, extended, or circumferential abdominoplasty. Your tummy tuck specialist will thoroughly examine the area to be treated in order to determine which technique will be most beneficial.

Typically, a long incision in the lower abdomen is made from hipbone to hipbone in order to separate the skin from the underlying muscle. Your Los Angeles plastic surgeon will then tighten the abdominal muscles, pull the skin down, make a new opening for the belly button, and trim away excess skin. This produces a more slender and better contoured midsection.

If you would like to achieve an overall enhancement, you may wish to inquire about liposuction and breast augmentation. Also, be sure to view before and after tummy tuck photos to see examples of patient results.

Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery

The average cost of abdominoplasty surgery in Los Angeles is $9,420. This does not include surgery center fee or anesthesia fee. Please consult with your Los Angeles tummy tuck surgeon for a more accurate final cost.
