Tummy Tuck

Though you may exercise and watch your diet, you may not be able to reduce the excess skin and muscle laxity in your abdominal region. Belly skin and muscles loosen with age. Pregnancy and weight loss can exacerbate the condition. Through abdominoplasty, Dr. Yu can remove some stretch marks and shape a flatter, more contoured abdomen for men and women alike.

Dr. Yu offers the traditional full abdominoplasty to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles, a mini-abdominoplasty to address the area between the belly button and pubic bone and procedures that are in between these two. Each procedure has advantages based on your particular situation and your desired results.

About Tummy Tuck Cosmetic Surgery

For your comfort and safety, you will be asleep under anesthesia during your abdominoplasty. If you only want to reduce the size of your lower belly, Dr. Yu will make an incision along your lower waistline, removing excess fat and skin while tightening your abdominal muscles. If you would like to see more dramatic results, Dr. Yu can perform a full abdominoplasty procedure. Though a more extensive surgery, it is also a more thorough and effective technique to reduce your abdomen size. Dr. Yu often performs liposuction in conjunction as part of your tummy tuck.

    What to expect during the Consultation Process


    You will have private, personal consultation with Dr. Yu. During this time, Dr. Yu will realistically discuss your goals for your tummy tuck. Dr. Yu and you will decide which procedures Dr. Yu will perform to achieve your desired results. You can see before and after photographs of patients who have undergone this procedure.

    It is our goal that you are well prepared for your procedure. Prior to surgery, we will ensure all the details are taken care of–consent forms signed, prescriptions filled, pre-op photos taken, payment received, and shopping for supplies complete.

    On the day of your surgery, you will simply arrive and receive gentle, compassionate, competent care beginning the moment you walk through the door.



    Patients who engage in a regular exercise plan prior to surgery heal more quickly. Abdominoplasty is major surgery, so it is natural that getting back to normal may take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Scars can take six months to a year to flatten and fade. At that point, they will not show under your clothes or be visible when you wear most swimsuits.
