In spite of regular exercise and a balanced diet, sometimes the tight, toned figure we desire remains out of reach.
Abdominoplasty, better known as tummy tuck surgery, can help those struggling to achieve the midsection they want.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Steven Wiener is known throughout Scottsdale, AZ, for providing excellent, personalized tummy tucks.
What Happens During an Abdominoplasty?
During an abdominoplasty, Dr. Steven Wiener provides sedation and anesthetic to numb patients from anxiety and pain. He then makes precise incisions in your midsection, allowing him to access the necessary removal areas. The next step is the surgical elimination of excess skin followed by the removal of excess fat, possibly with the aid of liposuction.
Dr. Wiener follows skin and fat removal with surgical tightening of the underlying abdominal muscles onto the center of their "six-pack" formation. Finally, the remaining skin will be pulled tighter, and the incisions will be closed with sutures, adhesives, or special tape. All of this results in a procedure that thins and refines the waistline, improves body contours, smooths loose skin, and restores a flat abdominal wall.

Our Plastic Surgeon Is Upfront About Cost
Some plastic surgery practices leave costs off their websites. Dr. Wiener does not. He knows his tummy tucks are worth it and believes in always being transparent. The price of a tummy tuck at our practice is between $9,000 and $15,000, depending on patient needs.
Tummy Tuck Results
The results of an abdominoplasty are permanent. Right after your procedure, you can expect swelling and difficulty standing upright. This typically subsides in just a week or two, after which you will be able to fully move and already see your firmer, fitter-looking midsection. After six months, your results should totally finalize.
It should be noted that significant weight gain, weight loss, or pregnancy can harm tummy tuck results. If you are planning a future pregnancy or are not at a stable weight, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure. In addition, you should not expect a tummy tuck to eliminate stretch marks.
