Cosmetic surgeon explains the tummy tuck process and cost


Tummy Tuck Cost in Orange County CA Area
Many people struggle with extra weight or skin in the abdominal area, whether it is due to prior pregnancy, weight gain and loss, or simply the way that your body naturally stores fat. While a healthy diet and exercise can only do so much to help slim down the abdominal area, patients in the Orange County, California, area can rely on Dr. Nguyen to help regain the slim and tightened abdomen that they deserve. Read on to learn more about the tummy tuck process and the factors that go into determining the cost.

The tummy tuck process

Each tummy tuck is unique because patients see us for this procedure due to a variety of reasons. Some patients may have little fat in the tummy area but have excess skin that has been stretched out due to weight loss or pregnancy. Others may have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to exercise and healthy eating. In general, a tummy tuck takes about three hours to perform, and it involves the following steps:
  • Creating an incision above the pubic bone and, in some cases, a second incision in the navel area if more tissue needs to be removed. If you have previously had a C-section, Dr. Nguyen can often incorporate that into the tummy tuck incision to reduce further scarring.
  • Removing the extra skin and repositioning the remaining skin and navel into an ideal location on the abdomen.
  • If you have stretch marks, Dr. Nguyen will also remove these or reduce their appearance as much as possible.
  • Some patients also have liposuction or muscle tightening performed during the procedure.
  • Finally, the incisions are closed, and you will rest comfortably in our recovery room until it is time for you to return home. We will provide you with all of the after-care information you need, along with a drainage tube and supportive garment to help promote healing and protect and support the area. Cost of tummy tuck
