Tessler Plastic Surgery

Tummy Tuck in Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona

Tummy tuck – also referred to as abdominoplasty – is a cosmetic surgery procedure for men and women who are looking to achieve a flatter and firmer belly. While exercise and diet are a great way to tone your body, they do not always lead to the shapely abdominal contour that you so desire. Tummy tuck plastic surgery focuses on getting rid of unresponsive fat and excess skin, as well as tightening stretched abdominal muscles in order to suit your aesthetic goals. This happens to be one of the most popular plastic surgeries in the United States. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports there were more than 123,000 abdominoplasty procedures in 2019 alone. More so, a study carried out by the ASPS shows that tummy tucks performed along with liposuction had a satisfaction rate of over 99%, with patients reporting significant improvements in self-esteem and quality of life.

Types of Tummy Tuck Surgery

Depending on the needs of the patients and the goals of the procedure, Dr. Tessler and Dr. Turin can perform one of the following tummy tuck procedures:

Full tummy tuck

This is the best tummy tuck procedure for men and women who have an extra-large midsection or weakened abdominal muscles. A full/total tummy tuck focuses on flattening the abdomen below and above the belly button. The surgeon will make a horizontal cut between your hips and around the belly button. He will then get rid of excess skin and tissue from the abdominal region, as well as tighten the loosened abdominal muscles. Once the desired outcome is achieved, your surgeon will close the incisions and bandage the treatment area.

Mini tummy tuck

A mini tummy tuck is a minimalistic procedure that is commonly performed on slender patients who have a ‘belly pooch’. The surgeon will focus on getting rid of excess skin and tissue below the belly button. During surgery, your surgeon will create a small horizontal incision right below the belly button and use it to tighten the abdominal muscles and get rid of excess skin. Once the desired changes have been achieved, the surgeon will close the incisions and bandage the treatment area.

Extended tummy tuck

This procedure is also referred to as a circumferential lower body lift because it targets the entire abdomen, lower back, and hips. This type of tummy tuck surgery is a great option for healthy individuals who wish to completely re-contour their midsection. The surgeon will create a long horizontal incision across the lower abdomen, as well as a vertical incision going via the belly button. Once this is done, excess tissue will be removed through and the abdominal muscles tightened. The surgeon will also use liposuction to remove excess tissue from the hip and lower back regions. The final step in this extensive cosmetic treatment is to reposition the belly button. Incisions sites will finally be closed, and the treatment area bandaged appropriately.

During one of your pre-op visits to Dr. Tessler and Dr. Turin’s office, the surgeon will discuss these procedure options and help you choose the best one to suit your aesthetic needs.


Expected Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery

The cost of tummy tuck procedure varies greatly depending on the extensiveness of the treatment, facility and medication fees, and the plastic surgeon’s fees. On average, most of Dr. Tessler and Dr. Turin’s tummy tuck patients in Scottsdale, Gilbert, and nearby AZ areas can expect to pay between $7,000 and $12,500 for this treatment. Tummy tuck surgery is considered to be an elective cosmetic procedure. For this reason, health insurers do not pay for this procedure. During your initial abdominoplasty consultation at Dr. Tessler and Dr. Turin’s office, the surgeon’s team will provide an initial cost estimate so you can make arrangements for financing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tummy Tuck FAQ


Will my stomach look worse than before if I gain weight?

The goal of this treatment is to improve the abdominal contour by tightening loose skin and muscle. Liposuction may also be included in this treatment in order to remove stubborn fat deposits. Should you undergo weight gain or weight loss after this surgery, there is nothing about your tummy tuck that will look unusual. Dr. Tessler and Dr. Turin recommend that you maintain a stable weight along with a heavy lifestyle in order to maintain the result of your tummy tuck procedure.

Will there be scarring?

Scarring is inevitable after abdominoplasty procedure. Working with a highly qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon is the best safeguard patients can take to minimize the risk of scarring and other side effects of this procedure. Dr. Tessler and Dr. Turin utilize advanced surgical procedures and a rigorous post-op scar care regimen to make sure that scars are a minimal – if any – concern for his patients.

How do I prepare for my tummy tuck?

Your surgeon will let you know how to prepare for a successful tummy tuck following your initial consultation visit at his office. You may be asked to quit taking certain medications (e.g. blood thinners and anti-inflammatory drugs). It is important to have someone to drive you home after the procedure, as well as set time aside for recovery. Smoking can impair healing and put you at risk after surgery. It is extremely important that candidates for this treatment stop smoking at least 4 weeks before the date of the surgery. As with any procedure, Dr. Tessler and Dr. Turin alway strives to deliver the best tummy tuck Phoenix AZ has to offer.
