Los Angeles Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)


Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck Los Angeles) :

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a surgical procedure that is used to remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. In many people the abdomen is also protruding due to stretched abdominal wall muscles. Dr. Grigoryants performs the new or advanced procedure called lipoabdominoplasty. This procedure combines liposuction and advanced tummy tuck techniques allowing to achieve much better results than the conventional tummy tuck in many patients. Dr. Grigoryants frequently performs liposuction of the flanks when performing a tummy tuck in order to improve the definition of the waist area.  To provide his patients with the safest possible experience, Dr. Grigoryants performs most of his surgeries in the hospital.   Patients have an option of staying overnight in the hospital.

Who benefits from s abdominoplasty (tummy tuck, Los Angeles)?

  • Patients with stretched abdominal skin and excess fat. Many of these patients state that they tried exercising and dieting with no improvement in the appearance of the abdomen.

  • Patients who after losing weight have a significant amount of loose skin that does not shrink.

  • Women after pregnancy with excess fat in the abdominal area and stretched / protruding abdomen which does not improve with exercises.

  • Patients with stretch marks in the lower abdomen with loose skin.

How is Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) performed?

We place an incision in the lower abdomen so that it is hidden within your underwear. The length of the incision depends on the amount of skin and fat that needs to be removed. In some patients, mini-abdominoplasty (mini-tummy tuck) can be done using a shorter incision. During your consultation, we evaluate the amount of skin and fat excess to be removed. We will draw the location and likely length of the incision on you or on your pictures (as you prefer).

Some patients with fat excess but good skin quality may benefit from liposuction alone.

During surgery, the abdominal skin is elevated and pulled down. Skin excess is then removed. The abdominal muscles and fascia are tightened if they are weak.

Is abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) safe?

Any surgical procedure carries risks of complications. We will discuss each complication with you during your consultation. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is performed very commonly and most people recover with no complication. Of the complications that do occur, most are minor and can be treated effectively. We utilize up-to-date knowledge and technology to minimize your risk of complications. We will also ask you to follow careful preoperative and postoperative instructions to further minimize the risk of having complications. We will discuss these with you in detail during your consultation. Some of the most important things you can do to reduce your risk of having complications is not to smoke at least a month before surgery and two months after surgery. Also avoid medications and herbal supplements that may increase your risk of bleeding. We will review all of your medications with you during your consultation and will advise which medications would need to be held.

What is recovery like after abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)?

In Los Angeles, Glendale some patients after abdominoplasty prefer to stay in the hospital overnight. You will have small drainage tubes placed under the skin to prevent fluid collections under the skin. These tubes will be removed once their output decreases (usually within 7-10 days). You will be able to walk the same day. We will ask you to wear an abdominal binder for support for several weeks. We use mostly absorbable sutures that do not need to be removed. You will notice results immediately. Over the next couple of months the swelling will resolve. You may start lifting heavier objects after 6-8 weeks.
