Abdominoplasty Phoenix


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.

Every woman’s body requires a slightly different form of the abdominoplasty.

Total abdominoplasty:          The skin is removed from the bottom of the abdominal wall left to right and also from top to bottom with a upside down “T” incision. The belly button or the umbilicus is moved to give a more favorable position and appearance to the belly button.

Mini abdominoplasty:           The skin is removed from a small incision low through the pubic area to remove just a small amount of skin and tighten the muscle just slightly.

Standard abdominoplasty:  A longer incision than the mini abdominoplasty but still only a single incision left to right and no vertical incision. Often the belly button is moved to make it more favorable in its position and appearance.

Panniculectomy:                    This is the only form of a dominant all reconstructive operation that is covered by the insurance. This is not a sophisticated operation as met only to amputate the lower part of the abdominal wall extra skin generally in patients that have lost a great deal of weight but does nothing to recontour in a sophisticated fashion the entire abdominal wall. It is a great service to some women however that have a great deal of extra skin at the bottom of their abdomen that hangs over their pubic area and upper thighs. But this is not intended to be a cosmetic operation but is intended to remove the skin ensuing infections can be averted.

  • review rating 5  I love Dr. Jacobsen. He really listened to what I wanted and offered his professional opinion on what options were best for me. I am very very happy with the result of my surgery. I am so grateful for his expertise. His bedside manner is also very caring. I had a great experience from start to finish. Kimberly was excellent to work with in the office and there is only a short wait each time on each visit. I'm in and out and super happy.

  • review rating 5  Thanks Dr. Jacobsen and staff. Warming atmosphere friendly informative and caring doctor. This was my first visit and doctor took the time to explain and answer my questions. Nothing was rushed. Staff greeted me nicely with smiles and patience. It took me courage to show up since I’m nervous about having a surgery to begin with. They helped me feel welcomed and relaxed. Thank goodness their office portal was working so no double work to provide my medical information and resigning papers.

  • review rating 5  I had many complications with my body healing from surgery, and Dr. Jacobsen demonstrated patience, resourcefulness, vigilance, and compassion. Here are a few specific things he did to help with my healing: he had me email him twice a day with pictures of my incisions so he could monitor, provide feedback and directions, and adjust his care for me as needed; he was always quick to respond to my emails and questions; he met me in his office on a Saturday during a holiday weekend to care for me during an important time in my healing; he provided regular and specific directions to my husband as he cared for me at home with the complications. His compassion and reassuring nature were valued as I put my confidence in his expertise to help me through this difficult time. I appreciate him greatly and give him the highest rating with no hesitations. His staff were also extremely helpful. Don't be bothered about calling the office and leaving a message (when someone doesn't answer) or emailing the office; they are very quick to respond with a phone call or email and this is part of their daily business routines, which allows them to care for their patients in person AND to those reaching out to them for miscellaneous reasons. This was different at first for me but I quickly adjusted, understanding their reasons and seeing their quick responses to me. The staff also worked seamlessly with my insurance company, a medical equipment company who came to my home three times a week to monitor and help with the healing process, and with the needed paperwork for my employment. I was always treated with respect, sensitivity, compassion, and excellent care.

  • review rating 5  I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. J to anyone in need of a Plastic Surgeon! I had a breast augmentation and everything from the initial contact to pre operation, to the VERY successful surgury, to post operation and very caring recovering...it was all such a positive experience. The staff and Dr. J himself were so helpful and answered all of my questions promptly, putting me at ease. Even 10 days after my Surgery when I had concerns, Dr. J responded to my email quickly, even though it was on a holiday. Choose Dr. J for you plastic surgery needs. You will NOT be sorry!

  • review rating 5  Dr. J is the Bomb! My story is long and my healing is still in the works, but without Dr. Jacobsen, I would still be far from being "hole" again, literally. 8 surgeries in 6 months, 4 before I even met Dr.J, and his A-mazing staff! A new year is starting and so is my new life! He is patient, caring, and his surgical expertise, healed a giant chest wound, that refused to heal. Thank you for helping me get my life back! You will always be in my heart.. and in and around, and under my skin that protects my miraculously beating heart. Thank you Dr. Jacobsen, and the many doctors, nurses, caring people, who have touched my life during the last 7 months!

  • review rating 5  Dr. Jacobsen and the entire staff are amazing! My 44 year old breast implants had been rupture for probably years without me knowing and an MRI confirmed. After consulting with four other surgeons, I chose Dr. Jacobsen because he is so kind and two of my friends were very happy with outcomes of their surgeries. My plan was to have the implants removed, a lift, and absolutely no new implants! Well, two days before my surgery my husband and friends convinced me that I would not be happy with my appearance. I caved and elected to have an implant exchange. My final words to Dr. Jacobsen were to make sure I wasn’t too large! Dr. Jacobsen delivered and I have smaller and higher breast that change my entire profile. The final result is amazing!! Dr. Jacobsen and his lovely staff have been professional, caring, patient, and an absolute joy to work with:)

  • review rating 5  My wife recently had cosmetic surgery by Dr. Jacobsen (Dr. J as he is known). Several other physicians we know recommended him. He is very compassionate and caring and has a very easy to navigate website that very educational regarding his services and pricing. The experience was very positive and she and I are very satisfied with the outcome at this early two week post surgery date. He does his surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center Outpatient Surgery Center in Phoenix and it is obvious that the nursing and other staff there hold Dr. J in high regard. He is a humble man who really wants to learn how he can help you. There are posters and awards on display in his office that indicate he is well respected in the greater Phoenix area. His office staff are very thorough and quick to respond to emailed questions.

  • review rating 5  I went to Dr. Jacobsen a few weeks ago for surgery on a keloid scar I had on my chest that was ugly and slightly painful. He removed that awful scar and it looks great now, it’s only a few weeks but I can already see a huge difference in the healing process. The procedure was also painless and he was great!
