Are you still waiting for your body to recover from pregnancy? Is your belly protruding or saggy with loose, wrinkly skin? If so, you may be an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, in Irvine, California.
Tummy tucks reveal a slimmer, firmer appearance to the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin while tightening weakened or separated abdominal muscles. Depending on the extent of your concerns, you may benefit from a smaller procedure, known as a Mini Tummy Tuck.
Tummy tucks can help:
Slim down a protruding belly
Firm up and smooth loose skin
Tighten loose or separated abdominal muscles
Improve your abdominal profile

If you are seeking a firmer, flatter abdomen but are otherwise content with your weight and body size, a tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck may be an ideal treatment for you. We can help you learn more about your options during your personal consultation.
Tummy tucks are not intended to improve stretch marks. A tummy tuck may reduce the appearance of stretch marks only if your stretch marks happen to be located on the skin that is removed during the tummy tuck procedure.
Tummy tucks are not a substitute for weight loss or exercise. A tummy tuck is an ideal treatment to undergo when your attempts at diet and exercise have failed to achieve the desired results and your body is at a stable weight. Gaining or losing substantial weight will affect your tummy tuck results. We recommend postponing your tummy tuck if you are planning to be pregnant or experience dramatic weight loss.
A mini tummy tuck is ideal for a “pooch” or loose skin and stretch marks below the belly button. A mini tummy tuck involves a single incision just above the pubic mound, through which we can tighten loose muscles and remove excess skin and fat to restore a smooth and flat abdomen.
You will need to rest at home for at least a week following your tummy tuck. We will fit you with a special compression garment to help minimize swelling and help your body heal and conform to your new contours. Be sure to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for at least two weeks or longer. Keep in mind that it can take months for swelling to fully subside. We will give you detailed post-op instructions during your personal consultation and after your procedure.
