Tummy tuck liposuction is a common procedure I perform. Extra skin, extra fat and loose fascia are addressed in one procedure. We have availability on Wednesday and can fit you into our March schedule. See a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation. Good luck.

A tummy tuck and liposuction are two procedures that I commonly perform. You are best to be seen in person to be properly evaluated. Best of luck !

I am a plastic surgeon and I am board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Your procedure can be done in the outpatient operating room or in the hospital, but the hospital

is more expensive. If you have medical problems the hospital may be required. The price for the tummy tuck ranges from $7600- $8800 depending on the amount of time that's needed. Tightening the muscles and making with the stomach flat is the key to the tummy tuck. Liposuction is responsible when narrowing the waist. You can e-mail photographs of yourself from the front, the sides and the back from the shoulders to the knees and I can try to

tell you what procedure I think would give you the best results and a better approximation price. You can also look at my website under the video education section for a description of

the procedure, the recovery and the complications associated with tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).

Thanks for the e-mail,

One of the more common procedures I perform is tummy tuck with liposuction. I would be happy to see you this week and determine if you are an appropriate candidate for surgery. For best results your body mass index should be in the 30 range if not less. Best of luck to you.

Thank you for sharing your question. I agree that in-person examinations are the key to a successful diagnosis and treatment recommendation and would recommend seeing a series of ASPS board certified plastic surgeons at your convenience. As you know, a tummy tuck will tighten your stomach muscles, helping to achieve a flatter stomach appearance, while removing excess skin and adipose tissue.  Liposuction can be used to enhance your tummy tuck results by narrowing your waist and removing isolated areas of diet and exercise resistant fat. Hope this helps.

Dear Cathy,

Thank you for your question. There are many excellent board certified plastic surgeons in the Delaware area. A physical exam and in person consultation is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for surgery. I am based in Miami, FL and our city receives many patients from out of town for surgery. It does require staying in town after surgery to recover, but most people enjoy vacationing in South Florida.

Best regards,

hello Cathy,

I am a Board Certified and have been in practice for more than 25 years, and I am located in the Baltimore area. I am also a member of the Gluteal Safety Task force, which issues recommendations for safe BBL.The combination procedure of Tummy Tuck with BBL is one that I frequently perform. This is a fantastic combination which produces a dramatic change in the body.

I perform this procedure under IV Sedation , which is a milder form of anesthesia . It eliminates much of the pulmonary risks that are associated with General Anesthesia commonly used. My AAAASF accredited facility uses only Board Certified Anesthesiologists.

You can schedule a Virtual Consult at my website or call my office at 410-494-8100 for an in-person consult.

Good luck and be sure to consult with a surgeon who is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
