Despite our best efforts with dieting and exercising, the abdomen can loosen, sag, or protrude due to pregnancy, aging, fluctuations in weight, or heredity.
The tummy tuck, formally known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can help restore a smoother and firmer midsection by removing excess fat and skin. It can also restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles.
With a tummy tuck performed at Dr. Stevens’ Beverly Hills outpatient medical facility, you can achieve a firm, toned, and narrow waistline that is attractive and more youthful.
Skin laxity in the abdomen can result from aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy. Tummy tuck surgery tightens the skin of the abdomen and removes excess skin so that the abdominal contour is smoother and flatter.
Excess abdominal fat that resists diet and exercise is common in many adults and may accumulate due to weight changes, pregnancy, aging, and heredity. During tummy tuck surgery, some areas of excess fat on the abdomen and hips can be treated with liposuction to eliminate fat bulges and flatten the abdomen.
Weakened or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) after major weight loss or pregnancy may cause the stomach to look perpetually pregnant. Tummy tuck surgery tightens the abdominal wall to improve core muscle engagement for better abdominal tone.

Additionally, Dr. Stevens offers a limited incision, modified abdominoplasty. This is for patients who require full muscle tightening, but who don’t have very much loose skin or fat that needs to be removed.
