Tummy Tuck

Call us: (831) 464-8880

Get the toned and tight stomach you’ve been dreaming of with a tummy tuck at Dignity Health Medical Group - Dominican Plastic Surgery.

During a tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck, Santa Cruz's Dominican Medical Group Plastic Surgery doctors will remove excess skin and fat from the stomach area and, depending on which surgery is elected, tighten the abdominal wall muscles. Once finished, you’ll have a slimmer waist, a flatter tummy and tighter skin.

The ideal candidates for tummy tucks are men and women in relatively good shape, but who have areas of fat or skin that won’t respond to proper diet and exercise. Moms in particular can see great benefit from tummy tucks, which can help to restore the stomach and hip areas to pre-baby form. 

You may benefit from a tummy tuck if you:

  • had a child,
  • have recently lost or gained a significant amount of weight,
  • or are experiencing loose or sagging skin due to aging.

In your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck options. Usually, the surgery elected depends your desired outcome and recovery time, as well as the laxity of your skin. 

Our doctors are board-certified and trained to perform this surgery, and they will tailor your procedure to meet your specific needs and wants, ensuring that any concerns about your tummy are addressed. After your tummy tuck, you will be comforted in our recovery area, where your surgeon will discuss post-operative instructions with you.

Tummy tucks are designed to be permanent; however, any significant weight gain could lessen the effectiveness of the procedure. If you are planning to lose substantial weight or plan to get pregnant, this surgery may not be for you.

If you think you’re a candidate for a mini tummy tuck or tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), Santa Cruz's Dominican Medical Group Plastic Surgery team can help. Call (831) 464-8880 to schedule a tummy tuck consultation.
