A tight and toned midsection is difficult to achieve on your own, but that’s where we come in. At Kadz Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, we can help you achieve the midsection of your dreams, and you don’t have to go to the gym or change your diet to do it. We offer abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, a procedure that tightens and tones your stomach by removing excess skin and fat. You’ll get an amazing midsection, no gym required.
What Is a Tummy Tuck?
The technical term for a tummy tuck is abdominoplasty. It is a procedure that perfects the midsection by removing excess skin and fat from the area while tightening the abdominal muscles. Different factors can cause loose skin and excess fat in the midsection, but both are very hard to treat on your own.
Loose skin can result from one or more pregnancies, the aging process, previous surgical procedures, genetic makeup, or weight changes. That’s the benefit of this procedure. Whatever the cause of your loose skin, weak muscles, and excess fat, a tummy tuck will tighten and tone your midsection, and you will be able to enjoy your results permanently.
Customizing Your Treatment
A tummy tuck can be performed as a stand-alone procedure but is often done in conjunction with other procedures to enhance and improve multiple areas of the body at once.
At Kadz Plastic Surgery, we offer many different body contouring procedures that will help improve your appearance, enhance your features, and give you a total body transformation. You can schedule a tummy tuck, but why stop there? You can meet all of your aesthetic goals in one procedure with any of these packages.
The Mommy Makeover
The mommy makeover is a procedure designed for women who want to get their pre-baby bodies back after one or more pregnancies. While abdominoplasty is included in this procedure, so too is a breast augmentation or breast lift. If you choose breast augmentation, you’ll have the option of saline, gummy bear, or silicone implants. It also includes monsplasty, the pubic contouring procedure, and can be completely customized to your needs.
The Hourglass Figure
Who doesn’t want an hourglass figure? We have good news: if you weren’t born with one, you can get one, thanks to our Hourglass Figure procedure. Along with abdominoplasty, which helps you get that tight and toned midsection, this procedure includes fascial plication, which tightens the muscles in the abdominal region and helps create that hourglass shape. It also includes liposuction in two areas of the body. By the end of this procedure, you will have that envy-worthy hourglass shape.
Weight Loss Total Body Makeover
Weight loss takes time, determination, and commitment. But what if you don’t have the time it takes to lose the weight you want? Or what if you just can’t target stubborn fat? That’s where we come in. We offer a Weight Loss Total Body Makeover that will remove unwanted fat from the body while enhancing your features and giving you a tight and toned midsection.
This procedure includes abdominoplasty and your choice of breast augmentation with gummy bear, saline, or silicone implants, or a breast lift. It also includes monsplasty, and Brachioplasty, which is an upper arm lift that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms to give you tighter and toned arms.
The Ultimate Makeover
Abdominoplasty provides patients with an effective way to transform their midsections, but you don’t have to stop there. You can experience all the benefits of a tummy tuck in our Ultimate Makeover package, as well as a few other procedures that can help transform your appearance for the better.
This package includes breast augmentation with the option of saline, gummy bear, or silicone implants. It also includes monsplasty, and vaginoplasty, which is a labial contouring procedure.
Brazilian Body Package
Brazilian models changed the way Americans viewed fashion models back in the late 90s and 2000s. Those images of Gisele gracing the covers of every fashion magazine have probably been forever ingrained in your head. While we can’t give you Gisele’s height, we can help you get one step closer to that envy-worthy Brazilian body.
The Brazilian Body Package includes abdominoplasty to give you that flat midsection. It also includes monsplasty, breast augmentation or a breast lift, two areas of liposuction, and a fat transfer. A fat transfer involves harvesting unwanted fat cells from one area of the body and then transfers them to an area like the buttocks to help augment and reshape the area in the most natural way possible.
Choosing the Right Tummy Tuck
There are different versions of a tummy tuck, and we will help determine the right one for you based on your needs. A full abdominoplasty addresses the entire midsection, while the mini version addresses the lower portion below the belly button.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Kadz will examine your midsection and discuss your goals to learn more about what kind of outcome you hope to expect. Then, he will create a treatment plan that will help you achieve that outcome.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will I Be Asleep During the Procedure?
This procedure begins with anesthesia, which will help you remain completely comfortable throughout the procedure. We administer general sedation or intravenous anesthesia during the procedure and will choose which is best for your needs based on the extent of your procedure.
During abdominoplasty, an incision will be created in a location predetermined by you and the surgeon during your initial consultation. The incision location is typically based on the patient’s ultimate goals.
What Is the Recovery Like?
You can expect to spend the first several days of your recovery resting. You should have someone who can help you with household duties, so you can focus on resting. You will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment, and you must avoid strenuous activity for approximately six weeks after your procedure. Once we customize your procedure, we will give you a better idea of what kind of recovery you can expect and the steps you need to take.
What Are the Benefits?
This treatment has many benefits, which is why it is such a popular cosmetic surgery. It helps your clothes fit better and can help eliminate the need for Spanx. This procedure replaces your once protruding midsection with a tight, flat stomach that can become a major source of confidence. It can address excess fat and skin in a way that your diet and fitness routine cannot.
It can also help tighten and tone your abdominal muscles, which will help enhance your overall appearance. Any muscle that you do build post-op while working your ab muscles will look that much better because they will no longer be hidden by a layer of excess skin and fat.
Who Is a Candidate?
Both men and women make good candidates for abdominoplasty. While weight gain can lead to loose skin, excess fat, and imperfections in your midsection, many patients who have reached a healthy weight schedule this treatment. They do so to address loose skin, excess fat, and muscle weakness in their abdominal area that they can’t address with diet or fitness efforts. Abdominoplasty improves the midsection in a way that you simply cannot.
We advise women to wait until they are done having children to schedule this procedure since getting pregnant after a tummy tuck can sabotage your results. The best way to determine whether this procedure is right for you is through an initial consultation at our office. We will review your goals and medical history and determine the best procedure or combination procedures to meet your needs.
