Tummy Tuck Scottsdale

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.

Why People Choose to Have a Tummy Tuck

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:

  • Aging
  • Hereditary factors
  • Fluctuations in weight
  • Pregnancy
  • Previous surgery

A Tummy Tuck’s Limitations

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.

Who Can Undergo a Tummy Tuck?

You could be the ideal candidate for a tummy tuck if you:

  • Are healthy and your weight is stable
  • Do not smoke
  • Have expectations that are realistic
  • Are concerned about the way your abdomen looks

During the Abdominoplasty Consultation 

Before you undergo your tummy tuck procedure we will schedule a consultation with you. We will speak to you about:

  • Your goals
  • Any medical conditions that you might have
  • Any medications you’re taking
  • Any drugs you’re allergic too
  • Whether you take herbal supplements or vitamins
  • Whether you smoke or take drugs
  • Whether you have previously undergone at type of surger

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.

How to Prepare for your Tummy Tuck

  1. We might ask you to have a medical evaluation to ensure you’re safe to undergo this procedure
  2. We might ask you to adjust some of your current medications
  3. Stop smoking
  4. Avoid taking any anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin, or herbal supplements.

What to Expect During the Procedure

During your tummy tuck we will carry out the following steps:

  1. Administer anesthesia. We will recommend you have either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
  2. The incision – A horizontal-oriented incision will be made between the belly button and the pubic bone. Another incision will be made around the navel if we need to remove excess skin. The skin in the upper abdominal area is pulled down and any excess skin is trimmed. The remaining skin will be sutured. The belly button will be taken through to the surface and sutured. 
  3. Clips, tapes, skin adhesives, or sutures will close all of the incisions.


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.

Your Results

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.

  • 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.
