Who Is a Good Candidate?

Abdominoplasty is a good surgical solution for women and men bothered by excess skin, bulging abdominal muscles, stretch marks, and belly fat resulting from significant weight loss, either following pregnancy or bariatric surgery. If loose skin is the only concern, BodyTite treatments might be an effective, nonsurgical alternative. Good candidates for a tummy tuck:

  • Have been unsuccessful in trying to improve the appearance of their abdominal area through exercise and diet
  • Are in good overall health
  • Have maintained a stable weight for several months
  • Are within 20% of their ideal weight
  • Don’t smoke, or are planning to quit smoking

Women who desire tummy tuck surgery, often as part of a mommy makeover, should be finished having children, because a future pregnancy may compromise the cosmetic results of a tummy tuck.

Better pain relief after tummy tuck

Our Approach

Dr. Hasen offers tummy tuck patients a specialized approach that:

  • Provides long-lasting pain control after surgery with EXPAREL®, a non-opioid medication applied during surgery. This innovative method removes the need for heavy prescription drugs or an inconvenient pain pump.
  • Speeds up recovery with a “no drains” technique that allows patients to stand upright within a few days of surgery and avoids additional scars.
  • Uses progressive tension sutures (PTS) to anchor the skin to the underlying tissue. This method speeds up the recovery process and minimizes discomfort.
  • Combines liposuction of the low back and flanks for contouring all the way around the abdomen.
  • Includes Silagen® scar refinement products to minimize the appearance of scars.

Less Pain With Exparel®Dr. Hasen is pleased to provide his tummy tuck patients with EXPAREL pain relief, a medication administered during surgery that prevents discomfort for 72 hours.

The Procedure

Dr. Hasen performs tummy tuck surgery as an outpatient procedure that takes about 3 hours to complete. You will receive either epidural anesthesia or deep IV sedation to ensure that you sleep through the procedure.

Our Surgery Center

Tour Our Surgery Center

We'll admit it: We love our surgical center as much as our patients do. The 7,600-square-foot facility, opened in 2016, reflects the blend of aesthetics, technology, and attention to detail at the heart of Dr. Hasen's world-class plastic surgery practice.

Tour the Facility

Dr. Hasen begins by making a bikini incision hidden low on the abdomen so it can be concealed even by very revealing attire. He removes excess fat and tightens loose skin. If needed, he repairs muscle separation that may have resulted from pregnancy or weight loss. Through the same abdominoplasty incision, he can contour prominent lower ribs or perform liposuction to provide multiple improvements with just one incision. He sutures the belly button from underneath the flap, enhancing its appearance, and closes the incision.

What Is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

Patients often ask whether they would be good candidates for a mini tummy tuck. In some cases, the cosmetic issues are confined to the area below the belly button. When the belly button doesn’t need to be repositioned and tissues above it don’t need to be addressed, it’s possible to get the desired results with a single, shorter incision just above the pubic area. It’s not the appropriate approach for patients whose abdominal muscles require tightening or who have significant skin laxity both below and above the belly button.

Recovery

Patients typically return home the day of surgery after a short period in our recovery suite. You will need an adult to assist you at home overnight. Our staff can arrange for a home nurse, if need be.

Our quick recovery method for tummy tuck simplifies the healing process because we use the long lasting medication EXPAREL. Additionally, there are no drains or pain pumps to deal with. Instead, you may wear an abdominal binder for 1 to 3 weeks. Moderate swelling and bruising may last several weeks. Patients may not see final results for several months.

Our tummy tuck patients usually return to their normal routines quickly, although individual experiences may vary. Most patients can shower on the second day after surgery. Patients can usually stand upright within a few days of surgery, and walk soon after. You may be ready to resume many activities after the first week, and most by the third week. You should be ready to return to work within 7 to 14 days.

Your Results

In most cases, results look natural and presentable approximately a week after the tummy tuck. You can expect continual improvement in the appearance of your abdominal area during the next 3 to 6 months. Patients enjoy having a firmer, flatter, more contoured abdomen and many are able to wear smaller clothing sizes. Unless a patient gets pregnant again, or gains a significant amount of weight, the results of a tummy tuck are long lasting. Of course, plastic surgery doesn’t stop the aging process and skin will still gradually lose its elasticity, but not much.
