Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Los Angeles & Beverly Hills, CA

Women and men who have loose abdominal skin and fat concentrated in the abdomen can benefit from abdominoplasty. These conditions can be inherited or result from substantial weight loss. Abdominoplasty can tighten muscles that have been separated and weakened by pregnancy. This procedure may eliminate stretch marks, especially those located below the navel. Individuals with minimal to moderate skin laxity and tight abdominal muscles will benefit from Dr. Stanton’s “Short Scar Lipo-Abdominoplasty,” a procedure that results in less scarring and generally a quicker recovery.

If you plan to become pregnant or lose weight in the future, you should discuss this with Dr. Ryan Stanton. It is important to disclose any and all previous abdominal surgery, as the scarring may limit the results of a future abdominoplasty.

Aging, pregnancy, and weight loss all affect the abdominal area’s appearance, but their effects can vary from patient to patient. When your goal is to reduce stretch marks, resolve muscle separation, and remove loose abdominal skin, Dr. Stanton will design a tummy tuck procedure that specifically targets your problem areas. While each procedure varies, most follow the same basic pattern. Your surgeon carefully makes an incision on your lower abdomen, through which he tightens muscles and removes excess skin and fat. A typical tummy tuck takes approximately two to four hours to complete. 

Your procedure’s cost will depend on the surgery’s extent. Dr. Stanton provides each prospective patient with a detailed quote during their consultation appointment.

Many patients are motivated by their new, flat abdomen and look forward to resuming exercise after their abdominoplasty with Dr. Stanton. It is crucial to follow your recovery instructions carefully and to wait to resume strenuous activities until Dr. Stanton clears you  to return to these activities. The return to activity post-surgery will be gradual as your body heals. Most patients can resume gentle movement like walking within a few days of their procedure. At about three weeks post-surgery, many patients are ready to resume some arm and leg exercises. Avoid core exercises, including crunches, until at least six weeks after surgery. Dr. Stanton will help you create a timeline for returning to these activities based on your healing.
