Tummy Tuck Beverly Hills

Excess abodominal fat and lax skin are common side effects from pregnancy or weight loss. Pregnancies with modest weight gain, a common occurance for most moms, often result in tummy fat and sagging skin. Typically, dieting and/or exercise alone are not enough to regain the flat stomach most crave for. Tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) is often a viable choice for those desiring a narrower waist, reduction in strech marks and a flatter tummy. More information on tummy tuck can be found here. Tummy tuck is now one of the popular plastic surgeries, either as a standalone procedure or as a combination as part of a mommy makeover.

The tummy tuck is truly a transformative procedure, and many of our patients tell us that they wish they’ve scheduled for a consultation in our Beverly Hills office sooner. You’ve done the work-outs, you’ve lost the weight, and you owe it to yourself to pursue your desired figure. Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker’s detail-oriented, results driven tummy tuck technique makes every effort to achieve the best possible results with the least amount of trauma and scarring, minimize potential complications and lead to an optimal recovery process for the patient.

If you are planning for additional child bearing or significant weight loss, then it is better to postpone the surgery until your weight is brought to a stable lower range.

Dr. Vishal Kapoor has an excellent personality and does a fantastic job on his patients. I had a tummy tuck in 2013 and six months later I was the picture perfect. Also in 2015 I underwent a breast implant surgery and a couple of months later I enjoyed amazing results and a ton of compliments from my friends and family (and actually pretty much from anyone who laid their eyes on me:) I continued to work with Dr. Kapoor enjoying his great Filler and Botox jobs which always look very natural – never too much or too little. I am absolutely happy with Dr. Kapoor and would recommend him to anyone. His staff is great and he has a super nice and easy going character always tailoring his consultations according to your personal needs. Many many Thanks to Dr. Kapoor from a devoted patient!

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

What Is A Tummy Tuck?

Everyone desires a flatter stomach or flatter tummy. By creating firm abdominal muscles and tightening the abdominal skin, a new contour is created. A tummy tuck procedure can smooth out skin, reducing stretch marks and creating the tight, toned stomach that almost everyone desires.

Why You Want A Tummy Tuck?

You want a tummy tuck because you want to tighten and firm the abdominal muscles while removing excess abdominal skin. You also want a tummy tuck to reduce severe stretch marks in the process of getting a soft and smoother layer of the skin.

Who Are The Best Candidates For A Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tuck procedures performed in Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker’s office in Beverly Hills suits both women and men who are in good health, and can find the procedure useful for tightening the stubborn skin around their abdomen that won’t disappear after working out. Best candidate for a tummy tuck are those who have undergone massive weight loss and post-partum women who have had multiple pregnancies.

How Is A Tummy Tuck Performed?

A tummy tuck procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia. A horizontal incision is made just above the pubic hairline. The skin is then dissected up toward the rib cage, the muscle is tightened, the belly button is repositioned and excess skin is removed. A tummy tuck itself requires anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to perform. Drains are most often used and are usually removed within 2 weeks following a tummy tuck procedure.

What Results Can You Expect After A Tummy Tuck?

Choose The Right Tummy Tuck Procedure For You

 

Tummy Tuck Procedure Beverly Hills

Partial Abdominoplasty

The mini abdominoplasty is performed on those patients with mild to moderate tummy contour changes, relatively little skin excess and little weakness of the abdominal wall. In the mini abdominoplasty, the navel incision is avoided. In addition to a tummy tuck, liposuction may also be performed at the time of mini abdominoplasty surgery in Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker’s Beverly Hills office.

Tummy Tuck Aftercare

Patients should take all prescribed medication and closely follow all aftercare instructions from the doctor to have a seamless recovery. Compression garments should be worn for as long as directed by the doctor to minimize swelling and reshape the body after the tummy tuck. Drains will be placed in the abdomen to help expel fluids collected after surgery. It is imperative to follow all instructions given by the doctor concerning drain care. Following the tummy tuck procedure, the doctor will schedule several postoperative appointments to monitor and track the recovery process. Loose clothing should be worn to avoid placing pressure on the incision. Any strenuous activities should be avoided for at least six weeks or until further instructed. Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker aim to stand as a resource throughout the entire recovery process to provide the leading care for their patients.

Dr. Kapoor was amazing!! I did my research for years before I chose a doctor. I chose him because I felt that he genuinely cared about what I was doing and wasn't trying to sell me on procedures. He gave me great advice about my procedure and made me feel comfortable. I'd recommend him to everyone.
