Abdominoplasty


A regular standard abdominoplasty requires a lower abdominal wall incision that extends through the pubic area to the LEFT and RIGHT in a curvilinear fashion from your LEFT hip to RIGHT hip. Depending on how much soft tissue needs to be removed and how much skin needs to be removed.  The abdominal wall skin is then lifted off the musculature and brought downward pulled tight, and then a portion of the skin is removed to tighten your abdominal wall.  The muscle is then tightened from the LEFT and RIGHT, as well across the middle, to give your muscle a much tighter appearance as well.  Sometimes the belly button must be transposed.  The belly button is not removed, but as you might imagine, when the skin is pulled downward the belly button gets pulled down as well.  As a result, the belly button is separated from the overlying skin and then popped through the new area of skin higher on the abdominal wall, after the skin is pulled snugly downward by Dr. Jacobsen. The belly button at the conclusion of the operation will be in the same place it was prior to the operation.  The abdominal wall is always then recontoured very nicely for you to give you a great look.  Drains are usually placed.  You will need a binder for at least 2 weeks and minimize your activity with lifting no more than 10 pounds for 3-4 weeks. Patients do very well with this.  The complications a very minimal.  This is not a painful operation.  If you follow Dr. Jacobsen’s instructions, you will come along very quickly. Patients that take the time to recover are the ones that return to their normal activity the quickest.

This operation can come in the form of a mini abdominoplasty or a total abdominoplasty. Both procedures are intended to help women of various degrees of redundancy of the lower abdominal wall.  The mini abdominoplasty has the and does not disturb the umbilicus. The standard abdominoplasty requires a longer incision in order to remove as much vertical redundant skin as possible.  The total abdominoplasty requires a upside down T incision with a vertical incision in the midline above the umbilicus to remove as much skin as possible from top to bottom, but also from left to right.  This is most commonly required for ladies that have had redundant skin that has developed in the central part of the abdomen around the umbilicus or if lost a great deal of weight. Usually women do not wish to have the additional vertical incision however I have never had a woman regret this decision as this additional incision allows reduction of the redundant skin left to right and gives a better waist line for the patient. This is something that can be discussed with Dr. Jacobsen at the time of your consultation. If you are considering an abdominoplasty in Phoenix please feel free to contact us with any questions or to schedule a consultation.

  • review rating 5  I'm having a hard time with this because, I can't say enough good things about this office! Dr. Jacobsen is an amazing surgeon. He is always available, for any questions or concern. His staff go way beyond any other office I have seen. They are more than helpful with insurance, appointments, or any issue or questions. The office is both beautiful, and comfy. Like I said can't say enough.

Yes, without a doubt and I would not hesitate to seek his help with any problem whatsoever. He is an excellent communicator and answers any and all questions and concerns so that I knew what was going to happen and what to look forward to. His staff is excellent as well. Dr Jacobsen has put together a highly professional team across the board. Bob N. 2/28/18

  • review rating 5  I couldn't be happier with my procedure. Dr. J has the most kind and relaxing manner and he is the ultimate professional. I had a fatty tumor on my forehead that he removed, as well as breast reconstruction. The breast reconstruction was overdue as I had breast cancer with multiple lumpectomies, biopsies and radiation. It left the tissue hard and my old implant like a rock. He was able to correct all of the problems and I'm much happier with my appearance. Although you may find it odd at first that you can't get anyone by phone their response time is amazing. I emailed the office on a Sunday afternoon that I had a problem and within ten minutes (no exaggeration) I had a text back that a prescription had been called in to my pharmacy. I've had procedures with other doctors around the Valley and never had an experience more pleasant, nor one which I was happier with the results.

  • review rating 5  I've had four visits with Dr. Jacobsen over the past 2.5 years, the first after the removal of 1/3 of my bottom lip from skin cancer, and the last for a biopsy of possible skin cancer on my nose. Each time, he has treated me with kindness and respect, and also had a level of confidence that made me feel relaxed with whatever he thought best for the particular problem. Thus far, the results have proven him correct. He has quickly become my go-to for any problem or condition that may create a cosmetic "issue". His office and staff make you feel welcomed and comfortable, and he promptly and generously responds to questions or concerns by email. One visit and you'll find these things out yourself.

  • review rating 5  I had skin cancer removed from my forehead for the first time and my dermatologist's office scheduled an appointment with Dr. Jacobsen on my behalf. Not only was the staff accommodating but they actually got another patient to reschedule so that they could fit me in to close up the (rather large!) wound. I still had no idea what was going on, what everything was going to look like, how much it was going to cost, etc and I was under a considerable amount of stress. Every staff member I interacted with put me more and more at ease; they're more worried about you as a person than they are about you as a payment. Dr. Jacobsen is very kind and so concerned about the wellbeing and comfort of his patients. I was in very good hands. I am now going through round two and I am back in his hands -- and couldn't feel more secure. The pictures shared are from my first procedure -- about 2 weeks apart. The scar has disappeared even more and is nearly unnoticeable even without a light layer of makeup (as in the after photo)
