Win Back Your Body With An Abdominoplasty

Your quality of life, body image, and confidence in your physique can be dramatically improved with a flatter, firmer, more youthful tummy. No more worries about hiding a bulging or stretched abdomen in loose clothing –we want you to reveal your abdomen with confidence at the pool, beach, or in tight clothing, and an abdominoplasty in Palm Springs can help do just that. 

Restore a Firm, Sculpted Abdomen with a Custom Tummy Tuck.

Our abdominoplasty in Palm Springs can be a life-changing surgery, especially when you have lost a significant amount of weight and have been left with loose, drooping skin on your abdomen. They are also customized and beneficial for an overstretched abdomen from pregnancy or if you have age-related fatty deposits and loosened skin and/or loosened abdominal muscles.

What’s Right For You, a Mini, Modified, or Full Tummy Tuck?

Depending on the degree of changes needed and the results you want to achieve, Dr. Sofonio may perform one of three custom surgeries:

Mini Tummy Tuck

A mini tummy tuck addresses the excess skin, fat, and tissue on the lower abdomen, below the navel. If you have lax skin or fat below the belly button, or stretch marks, or muscle laxity, this approach may be ideal for you.

Modified Tummy Tuck

A modified tummy tuck is more extensive than a mini tummy tuck and may be ideal if you have a more extensive amount of loose skin or hanging tissue and fat on the lower abdomen.

Full Tummy Tuck

A full tummy tuck in Palm Springs removes excess fat and skin from the mid to lower abdomen and tightens the underlying muscle structure, creating a more sculpted, long-lasting result.

How Long is the Surgery?

A full tummy tuck in Palm Desert may take from one to five hours, and some patients may desire to spend a night in an after care facility. A partial abdominoplasty, or mini tummy tuck, requires less time to perform. This aesthetic surgery typically comes with a reduced recovery and downtime after the procedure.

Your Journey to a Firmer, More Sculpted Figure: Recovery Time

It is normal to expect some swelling and bruising after your surgery. Small drainage tubes may be utilized for enhanced healing. You will have prescription medication to keep you comfortable during the first stages of healing.

Your recovery will take about one week to one month, during which time you must avoid all strenuous activities to ensure the incision has enough time to heal.

We love to see the pleasure our patients experience after the abdominal region has been restored to a firmer, tauter look. Abdominoplasty is not performed as a substitute for weight loss, although your procedure may include removing some quantity of excess fat, either surgically or with liposuction. Retaining the results of your procedure involves staying at a healthy weight and engaging in regular exercise.
