Scottsdale Tummy Tuck

If you have always wanted a tummy tuck, we can help you. Here at Dr J’s Office, we can provide you with a high-quality service that we know you will love. Tummy tucks are becoming more and more popular in Scottsdale as they can boost your confidence, but what exactly is a tummy tuck? We’re going to look at this now. 

What is a Tummy Tuck?

How to Prepare for your Tummy Tuck 
Also known as “Abdominoplasty”, a tummy tuck is a procedure that’s used to improve the walls of your abdomen and your tummy. With the ability to tighten your abdomen’s muscles and reduce any excess skin, a tummy tuck can give you the appearance of a flatter stomach and abdominal wall. 

While this procedure is not very painful, patients will need to limit their activity levels after surgery. A binder will also need to be worn. The good news is your doctor will give you instructions to follow so that you can take good care of yourself. 

Tummy tucks usually require an overnight stay, and you’ll also need to take antibiotics. However, after the first week, you should start to feel much better. Do not worry, you will be in good hands. We will provide you with high-quality care every step of the way. 

How is a Tummy Tuck Performed? 

tummy tuckWhile many people are happy to have a tummy tuck, it’s not always clear as to how they are performed. Do not worry, you will find the information below: 

 –  Anesthesia 

One of the first things that will occur during this procedure is the administration of medication. The correct medication is used to make sure that you are completely comfortable. 

We don’t want you to feel any unease at all. This is why we will offer you a choice between general anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Your doctor will let you know what the best choice for you is. 

–  The Tummy Tuck Incision 

A horizontal incision will need to be made between the belly button and the pubic hairline. The length and shape of this incision will ultimately be determined by how much excess skin there is. As soon as the skin is lifted, the abdominal muscles will be repaired. The doctor might need to make another incision around the navel. This incision will remove any excess skin that’s located in the area. 

Next, the skin in the upper abdominal area will be pulled down. Any excess skin is trimmed and the remaining skin will be sutured. Finally, there will be an opening made for the belly button. The belly button will then be put through the hole and sutured. 

– Closing 

The final step of this procedure involves closing all of the incisions. This is done using clips, tapes, skin adhesives, or sutures. 

What a Tummy Tuck Cannot Achieve 

What a Tummy Tuck Cannot Achieve Here at Dr. J’s Office, we believe in being upfront and honest with you. We want you to understand the consequences of any procedure that you might have. We, therefore, want you to have realistic expectations. 

Below you will find details of what a tummy tuck cannot achieve:

  • It cannot help you to lose weight 
  • It isn’t an ideal substitute for an exercise program 
  • This procedure cannot help you to correct any stretch marks

If you are looking for help with any of the above areas please speak to us. We might be able to help you by offering you another procedure.

Can you have a Tummy Tuck? 

While many people might wish to undergo a tummy tuck, the best candidates for this procedure tend to be:

  • Those who do not smoke
  • Anyone who is a healthy and stable weight 
  • Anyone who has good physical health 
  • Those who have realistic expectations 
  • Those who are concerned about the way their abdomen looks 

Please note, tummy tuck procedures will differ from person to person. This is why it is essential that you undergo the procedure for yourself. It is important that you do not try to create an image for another person or to fit in. Please make sure you’re only opting for this procedure to make yourself happy.

  • Dr. J has an amazing personality and the surgery was quick, painless, and perfect. I didn’t even need to take any painkillers after I woke up. I look and feel so much better. Would highly recommend him to anyone considering surgery. The staff was also incredibly easy to work with. All around great office energy and the medical staff at the surgery center are so sweet.

  • I’m 9 days post op and I’m very happy with the results so far (still healing). Dr. J is easy to talk to. I went in for a consult and was able to schedule the procedure for the very next week. All went very well. I was so afraid to remove the bandages - I was expecting a bloody/bruised mess. I was pleasantly surprised to see tiny incisions with no scabbing or bruising. I’m very impressed.

  • Enjoyed meeting and working with Dr. J. I had an eye lift and it was a pleasant experience from start to finish. Dr. J’s bed side manner is very personable and genuine. He explained everything step by step and made the procedure very painless. Even though I’m from Minnesota - I will be coming to Dr. J for any future cosmetic surgical needs. I cannot recommend Dr. J enough.

  • What a brilliant human! I’m so thankful for finding this amazing genius. I’ve struggled with skin sagging since my weight loss surgery. My arms were my nemesis, I have other skin removal surgeries to have in the future but my arms were really my starting point and I had went to try to freeze the remaining stubborn fat and skin to hopefully shrink. Yeah that didn’t work. Then I found this guy, he’s awesome, his staff is awesome and professional and I cannot say thank you enough to this life changing leap into the rest of my journey. I truly and blessed to have had the opportunity to be able to experience the joy he has for his craft. He has truly changed my life. Thank you Dr. J.

  • I, Theresa Buschbacher, prepared this review and submitted it on my husband,s account. Superb, Excellent, Caring, Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Experienced, these are all descriptive terms that one must earn. Dr.J has completely filled the requirements of each and every of these terms and they can all equally be applied to him. His knowledge immediately puts you at ease (and when what he says will happen does actually happen, you get a big smile inside and you know you have a relationship with an excellent doctor)! Now for the support staff, they relate to you and express a genuine concern for what you are going through. They work with you and put you at ease while accomplishing what is needed for the “business end” of the doctor’s office. This is a WINNER!!

  • This will be a long review but worth the read! I'm beyond impressed with the overall quality, cleanliness, prices, customer service and results. First impressions, their branding of their classy theme provided an elegance that I felt right at home. I felt like a king who was going to get the best treatment! Secondly, very clean... I mean this place was immaculate! You can tell these folks worked hard to build their business and put in the work to upkeep it! As a business owner myself I applaud the way they conduct their business and never loose their family values, that caring, compassionate, family oriented value that most businesses start off with but loose over time. I can tell that money is not their passion. Their customers results are, the smiles and cries one has when they see their results. I was terrified of anesthesia, and when I expressed my concerns about my PTSD the surgeon, anesthesiologist and staff all took the time to sit with me and listen to me then proceed with a break down of how well they were going to take care of me and make sure I have the best experience possible. In which I certainly did! And best part I didn't wake up out of it, scared, panicking or anything like that. I was a little tired of course, but I went live for my fans soon as I got in the car. I felt comfortable the entire time I was waiting and when my nerves were really high I was honest and told them. They put in the extra love to make sure I was ok. When I went back and they gave me whatever magical cocktail, I felt as my procedure was 4 seconds. I didn't wake up during surgery, didn't hear anything nor wake up in pain! Everything they could have possibly done right they absolutely did! I felt safe too. And when I had questions after they were great about responding and following up. The cleanliness was great, and they took all precautions during this time of COVID-19. I knew the day I met Dr. Jacobson during my consultation that he had to be my surgeon! I hope this review helps viewers make that final decision on choosing Dr. Jacobson as their surgeon and if anyone has questions you are more then welcome to ask and I will answer to the best of my abilities? Thank you Dr. Jacobson and your staff?? my results are incredible! And I'm not even fully healed yet and I can't stop staring at my chest! It's a dream come true and it wouldn't have be possible without you and your staff. God bless!

  • Dr J is absolutely brilliant. His office and staff are out of this world and his demeanor is so friendly and up beat. He makes you feel like you are in the best possible hands... And you are! The Surgeon I met with before I saw Dr J told me I would need a general anesthetic for my surgery and likely a skin graft. I was terrified. Went to Dr J for a second opinion and he was totally nonchalant about what needed to be done. He did it a week later in his office with just some local freezing and it was amazing! No problems at all. I would never see another Dr for surgery. Dr J is truly above the rest! Even his peers give him awards. His office is full of them! Big hugs to him and his staff for turning this in a happy ending from a scary start.
