HB: What concerns does a tummy tuck work to address?

The Removal of extra or loose skin. We offer restoration of weakened or separated muscle and can improve the curvatures of the waist.

HB: Walk us through the procedure. 

Patients come in for an initial consultation to discuss concerns and improvements they want to see. The consultation addresses individual patient’s issues and concerns. Next, a surgical plan is formulated. After the consultation, the patient is then scheduled for surgery and given a list of pre/post-operative instructions.

HB: Who is a good candidate?

Healthy patients whose lifestyle includes a balanced diet and exercise, patients with excess skin and muscle laxity after pregnancy, or patients who have recently undergone extreme weight loss.

HB: What is recovery like from an abdominoplasty?

Recovery is unique for each patient!

HB: What is the cost?

Much like recovery, surgical pricing is unique to the patient as well. Typically, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty begins at $8,500 but could range to accommodate the patient’s individual needs. Oftentimes, liposuction is used to enhance a tummy tuck in order to achieve optimal results. This is an additional treatment and will affect surgical fees.
