Have you exhausted natural means of weight loss such as diet and exercise only to find that you cannot achieve a flatter midsection? If so, you may be an ideal candidate for tummy tuck surgery. If you are in the Boise area, a qualified plastic surgeon can help you reach your desired body contour with this procedure.

What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, or "abdominoplasty," is a surgical procedure intended to remove fat and excess skin from a protruding stomach, which then tightens the muscles to flatten the abdomen. Based on the amount of protrusion and excess, sagging skin, a tradition, mini, extended, or circumferential abdominoplasty will be chosen.

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 Baja California plastic surgeon will then tighten the abdominal muscle, 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 shape.

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

How much does abdominoplasty cost?

The national average cost of tummy tuck surgery is $5,381. This does not include anesthesia or surgery center fees. A more accurate estimate of your final cost can be determined during a consultation.
