Serving Orange County: Newport Beach and Fullerton, CA
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, offers a solution for women and men with excess skin and loose muscles in the abdominal area. Through surgical removal of excess skin and retightening of the tissue encasing the abdominal muscles, I can help my patients achieve a firmer, flatter abdomen.

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?
Abdominoplasty removes the loose skin and tissue that remains behind following pregnancy or rapid weight loss. The procedure also can repair lax or separated abdominal muscles. I find that there is often some confusion between a tummy tuck and liposuction. Liposuction only removes excess fat, while a tummy tuck is focused on removal of excess skin and, if necessary, surgical repair of the tissue encasing the abdominal muscles.
Abdominoplasty is about far more than just flattening out your belly. I am looking to create a more toned appearance, not a pulled, abnormally taut stomach. My conservative approach to abdominal sculpting allows me to create a flattering look for a wide range of patients.
I perform two types of abdominoplasty procedures. The procedure that is right for you will depend on the level of correction needed to achieve your goal.
Following your surgery, you can expect your abdomen to look swollen and feel sore at first; you may notice these symptoms particularly when standing fully upright. You will receive detailed post-operative care instructions from my office to ensure that your recovery is as comfortable as possible. Although internal stitches will dissolve on their own, I will have you return to the office to remove any external sutures within the first week.
