Goodbye Excess Skin and Fat

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess skin and tightens loose muscles in the abdominal area. It can also address stretched or separated abdominal muscles, creating a flatter, more toned appearance. Dr. Lee offers a variety of tummy tuck techniques to achieve your desired results, including:

Mini Tummy Tuck: Ideal for addressing concerns in the lower abdomen below your belly button

Full Tummy Tuck: Addresses both the upper and lower abdomen, including tightening of the muscles

Extended Tummy Tuck: Can also address the flanks for a more comprehensive body contouring effect.

Fleur de lis Tummy Tuck: Can address skin excess in all directions to achieve better tightening. May be beneficial in massive weight loss patients.

Full Tummy Tuck with Liposuction: Our most commonly performed procedure to address not only skin excess but also excess fat in the abdomen and waist.

What is the Tummy Tuck procedure like?

During your personalized consultation at PURE Cosmetic Center, Dr. Dave Lee will discuss your goals, evaluate your body, and recommend the most suitable tummy tuck technique for you. The tummy tuck procedure itself is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.

What will my tummy tuck scar look like?

Dr. Lee uses a variety of incision techniques, depending on which type of tummy tuck surgery suits your needs. While a mini tummy tuck utilizes a smaller scar, a full or extended tummy tuck will often get the best contour and shape. In any case, Dr. Lee takes meticulous care to ensure that you have the most discreet and natural-looking tummy tuck results. Scars are kept as low as possible so that they can be hidden under clothing. The belly button scar is shaped to create the most natural-looking effect.

What conditions does Tummy Tuck address?

A tummy tuck can address a variety of concerns caused by pregnancy, weight loss, or simply the aging process, including:

  • Loose, sagging skin in the abdomen
  • Excess fat deposits in the belly
  • Stretched or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
  • Bulges or protrusions in the abdomen

What areas of the body can a Tummy Tuck address?

A tummy tuck focuses on the abdominal wall, improving the appearance of the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, and waist. Depending on the chosen surgical technique, different degrees of improvement can be seen in each of those areas

What are the benefits of Tummy Tuck?

PURE Cosmetic Center Logo

A tummy tuck can offer a range of potential benefits, including:

  • A flatter, more toned stomach
  • Improved body contour and shape
  • Enhanced self-confidence and body image
  • Increased comfort in clothing
  • Improved core strength and function (when addressing separated muscles)

While a tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure, it can also enhance physical wellness for patients experiencing loss of muscular function due to diastasis recti as well as those with severe excess skin that causes rashes, infections, or chafing. For patients with such physical concerns, a tummy tuck offers substantially improved quality of life by increasing health, comfort, and confidence.

Tummy Tuck Results

The Art of the Tummy Tuck

You will begin to see the initial results of your tummy tuck immediately after surgery, with the final results becoming visible within a few months as swelling subsides. Tummy tuck results are typically long-lasting, but maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle is important to preserve your results.

Tummy TuckFAQs

Liposuction removes excess fat deposits, while a tummy tuck addresses loose skin, tightens muscles, and creates a more sculpted abdominal appearance. In some cases, liposuction may be combined with a tummy tuck for a more comprehensive body contouring effect. This is the most common combination of treatments that Dr. Lee performs. Dr. Lee will discuss the best option for you during your consultation.

While a tummy tuck can significantly improve the appearance of your abdomen, it is not a substitute for a strong core. A tummy tuck combined with liposuction can create a thinner layer of tissues above your abdominal muscles so that your six-pack shows through more easily. A combination of a healthy diet, regular exercise, and the tummy tuck procedure can help you achieve a flatter, more toned stomach.

To prepare for tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Lee may recommend that you stop smoking several months beforehand. You will also need to maintain a stable weight and avoid taking certain medications that can interfere with bleeding or blood clotting. During your consultation, Dr. Lee will provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions. Staying healthy and eating a well-balanced diet will be important as you prepare for surgery.

Tummy tuck results are long-lasting, but maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle is essential to preserving your results. Pregnancy after a tummy tuck is possible, but it's important to discuss this with Dr. Lee beforehand.

As with any surgery, a tummy tuck carries some potential risks, such as infection, bleeding, and scarring. Dr. Lee and his team will discuss these risks in detail during your preoperative appointment and will take all necessary precautions to minimize them. We also offer scar management including lymphatic massage, silicone taping, and laser scar treatments to help minimize risks of scarring.

The cost of a tummy tuck can vary depending on several factors, including the type of procedure chosen, your anatomy, whether additional adjunct procedures such as liposuction as needed to achieve your desired results, surgeon's fees, anesthesia costs, and facility fees. During your consultation, our Patient Care Coordinator will provide you with a personalized cost estimate.
