Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty) at San Diego Body Contouring
If it seems like every pound you gain seems to go straight to your waistline, you’re not imagining things. A healthy diet and regular exercise can go a long way towards beating the belly bulge, but genetics, hormones, lack of sleep, and stress are known for messing with tummy toning efforts. On top of lifestyle factors, a major weight loss or pregnancy can stretch the abdominal muscles, resulting in droopy, sagging skin on your midsection that stays put no matter how many crunches you crank out.
With the odds stacked against you, flattening your stomach can easily feel like an uphill battle. However, you don’t have to live with a protruding belly forever. Tummy tuck surgery can remove excess fat and skin from your midsection and tighten the abdominal muscles for a dramatically flatter stomach. At San Diego Body Contouring, we’re proud to offer tummy tuck surgery in San Diego to give you a slim, trim figure you’ll be proud to show off.
What is a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes skin and fat from the midsection and surgically tightens the abdominal wall to sculpt a flat stomach and defined waistline. To begin, Dr. Sarosy will first mark your abdomen to indicate the incision points and center of your torso. Then, he will carefully contour the skin, tissue, and muscle to create the flat, firm stomach you’ve always wanted. If your fat deposits are located below your bellybutton, Dr. Sarosy may be able to perform a mini tummy tuck to achieve your desired results.
How much does tummy tuck surgery cost? Does insurance cover a tummy tuck?
At San Diego Body Contouring, we’re currently offering a tummy tuck surgery special for $4,995, excluding anesthesia, lab work, and garment fees. Because a tummy tuck is an elective surgery, insurance does not cover these costs. However, the feeling you’ll get from finally achieving the flat, sexy stomach you’ve always dreamed of is, of course, priceless. Learn more about financing a tummy tuck surgery by clicking here.

When to consider a tummy tuck
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your stomach due to excess fat, sagging skin, or lax abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck is a great way to finally get the firm, toned stomach you’ve been working so hard for. If any of the following ring true, it might be time to consider a tummy tuck:
• You struggle with belly flab, excess skin, and stretch marks that don’t improve with a healthy diet and exercise.
• The shape of your abdomen has changed due to a pregnancy or major weight loss and you want to restore a firm, more youthful figure.
• Your protruding stomach makes you feel self-conscious and prevents you from wearing a swimsuit or your favorite clothing.
• You are physically healthy and don’t plan to lose any more weight, yet are still dissatisfied with your physique.
What can I expect from abdominoplasty recovery?
While completely safe, an abdominoplasty is a major surgery with a significant recovery period. Once the anesthesia wears off and you have been discharged, you will need someone to drive you home. Your abdomen will feel sore and tender, and your incisions will be covered with a bandage to keep the area clean. You may have tubes placed in your incisions to drain away fluid, which you will need to empty a few times a day to promote the healing process. Your sutures will be removed within a week or two, and you can expect to ease back into your normal routine after a few weeks. The full extent of your results will become apparent six months following the procedure.
