If you live in Scottsdale, we can help you. We have performed many tummy tucks and we can ensure you have a look you love. Also known as “Abdominoplasty”, a tummy tuck involves removing excess skin and fat. It also works to restore any muscles that have become separated or weakened. This works to create a smoother and more firm abdominal profile.
Most people strive to have a well-toned and flat abdomen. However, regardless of their efforts, not everyone can achieve their goal. Some people have an abdomen that naturally sags, protrudes, or is quite loose. Did you know that the most common cause of protruding or sagging abdomens include:
f you have stretch marks around your abdomen, a tummy tuck will not normally be able to correct this. However, if the stretch marks are located on excess skin, it’s likely that they will be removed.

Before you undergo your tummy tuck procedure we will schedule a consultation with you. We will speak to you about:
During the consultation, we will also evaluate your health and any pre-existing conditions you might have. We’ll discuss all of your options with you and recommend treatment. In addition to this, we’ll need to take some photographs of you, and discuss any complications or risks.
During your tummy tuck we will carry out the following steps:
Bandages or dressings will be applied to the areas where the incisions were made. You might also be wrapped in a compression garment or a bandage. This is to support your abdomen while you heal. Tubes might be placed under your skin to drain excess fluid or blood
Your surgeon will give you instructions as to how to care for the site, which medications you should take, and what to look out for. You will also have a follow-up appointment with your surgeon to check if your incisions are healing properly.
While there might be some initial swelling, you should find that after two weeks the swelling has disappeared. You should have a flatter, firmer abdomen that is in proportion to the rest of your body.
Please note, there might be some scarring. The scar could take a few months and up to a year to fade. This is normal. Please make sure you always follow your surgeon’s advice so your tummy tuck is more likely to be a success.
