Tummy Tuck

Ideal Candidate:

  • Protruding, loose or sagging abdomen
  • Excess stomach fat and skin
  • Loss of abdominal control due to pregnancy or aging

The Method:

You’ve done everything you can to get rid of the excess on your abdomen and it just isn’t going away. Sound familiar? If so, a tummy tuck by Dr. Kagan could be the perfect procedure for you. A tummy tuck, sometimes called an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can correct a protruding, loose or sagging abdomen.

Common causes of abdominal sagging include:

  • Heredity
  • Multiple pregnancies
  • Surgery
  • Significant fluctuations in weight
  • Spine abnormalities that affect posture

The Procedure:

In general, an abdominoplasty is used to remove excess fat and skin. In some cases, the tummy tuck procedure can restore weakened or separated muscles of the abdomen (diastasis). Under general anesthesia, Dr. Kagan performs abdominal contouring using a variety of techniques, including liposuction or excision. A horizontal incision in the area between the pubic hairline and the navel is required and will vary in shape and length depending on the degree of correction necessary. For patients, a second incision may be necessary around the navel to reshape the upper abdomen as well.

“So good that even my dad went in”

Dr. Kagan is AWESOME. He did my DST eyelid procedure and I couldn’t be happier. My eyes look fantastic. So good that even my dad went in and had his done. His staff is always very welcoming and Dr. K has great bedside manners, is very experienced in what he does and was very informative! I didn’t expect to learn so much before my procedure and I am glad I did to better understand what he would exactly be doing. I will definitely be going back to Dr. Kagan for any future procedures and highly recommend him!
