[liv]® Tummy Tuck reduces the thickness of the tummy skin with VASER® liposuction followed by tightening of the stomach muscles and removal of extra redundant skin while keeping the incisions in the bathing suit or tan lines.

[liv]® Tummy Tuck:

No-Drain Abdominoplasty: A tummy tuck procedure where liposuction is performed not just over the flanks but also over the mid abdomen, and the incision can lie in the bikini line. This procedure is also one part of the mommy makeover.

Partial or Mini Abdominoplasty: A tummy tuck operation where liposuction is performed but there is more relative fatty tissue than excess skin so the length of the incision can be minimized to just the length of the pubic area.

Circumferential Abdominoplasty: Used for patients with significant extra skin which often occurs after massive weight loss due to gastric bypass or gastric sleeve operations. This procedure requires an incision that travels completely around the waistline. Often this operation is combined in a staged manner with other skin-reducing operations, such as a breast lift/reduction, arm lift (brachioplasty) and thigh lift.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have Question? We are here to help!

How long does a tummy tuck last?

The results of a tummy tuck can last indefinitely, but there are some factors which can impact the longevity of your results.

Does a tummy tuck remove all belly fat?

A tummy tuck operation where liposuction is performed but there is more relative fatty tissue than excess skin so the length of the incision can be minimized to just the length of the pubic area.

What are the weight requirements for a tummy tuck? 

It is important that you be close to your desired weight for six to twelve months before undergoing a tummy tuck. Most surgeons will recommend patients be between 10-15 pounds from their goal weight. This is important as gaining or losing additional weight can undo the contoured shape achieved through your surgery.

How painful is a tummy tuck?

At the beginning, you will be fatigued, swollen and sore. It is normal to have moderate pain during these first several days, although this will steadily improve. It is vital to allow yourself time to focus on rest and healing.

How many sizes do you lose with a tummy tuck?

On average, patients can expect to go down about 2 to 3 pant sizes after tummy tuck surgery, though many patients reduce their waist size by even more. Again, this will depend on how much excess skin the patient has to start with, as well as how committed they are to maintaining their weight after surgery.

Does your stomach go flat after a tummy tuck?

Generally, patients should see their flat tummy emerge within three to six months, though it may take as long as a year. Depending on your starting anatomy, a truly flat stomach may not be possible.
