Defining Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy Tuck Surgery is a surgical procedure that can remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen and restore weakened muscles to create a smoother and firmer tummy.

There are several varieties of the abdominoplasty procedure, including the “mini” abdominoplasty, the traditional abdominoplasty, the extended abdominoplasty, and the fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty. We often combine abdominoplasty with liposuction to achieve superior contouring and results.

To learn what procedure is right for you, make an appointment and our doctor will help you decide what procedure may accomplish your desired outcomes.


Good Candidates for Tummy Tuck Surgery

You may be a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery if:

  • You are at least 18 years old
  • You are in good physical health
  • You have excess abdominal skin, perhaps due to significant weight loss or pregnancy
  • You are currently at a stable weight
  • You are done bearing children

Planning for Your Tummy Tuck Consult

Come prepared to explain your expectations and potential concerns with our doctor during your consultation. You will have the opportunity to highlight your desired outcomes and the doctor will recommend a course of treatment that will most likely help you achieve those outcomes.

In order to recommend an appropriate procedure, we will first evaluate your general health status and examine your abdomen. We will also obtain a list of your medical conditions, drug allergies, and use of current medications, vitamins, and supplements, as well as your consumption of alcohol, tobacco or illicit drug use.

Preparing for Your Tummy Tuck Surgery

Prior to surgery, you will be given a list of instructions to follow in regards to eating, drinking, smoking, medication use and physical activity. You will also have to plan for another individual to be available to drive you home after your surgery.

Recovering from Your Tummy Tuck Surgery

After surgery, you will be given a list of post-operative instructions to follow for your recovery and you will schedule a follow-up appointment with your surgeon.

Recovery is generally comfortable, and many people return to work quickly. With time, the scar will continue to heal and is often undetectable, even in swimsuits.

Results of tummy tuck surgery are long-lasting, as long as you maintain your current weight and exercise regularly.

Important Considerations of Your Tummy Tuck Surgery

  • A tummy tuck is not a substitute for a nutritious diet and regular exercise
  • Abdominoplasty results are long-lasting, but the positive outcomes can be diminished by future pregnancies and significant fluctuations in your weight
  • A tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks, although these may be removed if located on the areas of extra skin that will be cut off

Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery

The cost of tummy tuck surgery is specific to each individual patient due to the uniqueness of each patient’s needs and desired outcomes; averaging anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000 or more. This is an elective surgery and is rarely covered by health insurance. NJ Aesthetic & Cosmetic Surgery offers several payment options including cash, check, and credit. Financing options are available!
