Dr. Esmalian fine-tunes his procedures to meet the needs of all of his clients. Patients in Huntington Beach and Seal Beach love our practice for the comfort and results that we provide.

Over time, factors such as pregnancy, changes in weight, and the natural aging process all take a toll on our bodies. Patients find that their physiques no longer look how they used to. Tummy tuck procedures are designed to address these issues, leaving patients feeling better than ever.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Also known as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck procedures counter the negative effects of pregnancy and weight fluctuations, extracting excess skin and tissue to create a more aesthetically appealing midsection.

What are the Benefits of Abdominoplasty?

Tummy tuck procedures come with obvious advantages in regard to the patient’s appearance. The abdomen has a more tapered, refined look that is more reflective of how they feel internally. Patients gain newfound confidence, allowing them to branch out socially and make new connections.

Beyond providing cosmetic benefits, a tummy tuck can improve issues such as:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Back pain
  • Hernias
  • Bloating
  • Bad posture 
  • Bulges from a C-section
  • Distended stomach following childbirth

Who is an Ideal Candidate For a Tummy Tuck Procedure?

Ideal candidates for a tummy tuck in Huntington Beach or Seal Beach:

  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Can maintain a stable weight
  • Have realistic expectations for the results of the treatment
  • Are non-smokers or are willing to quit
  • Are unhappy about the appearance of their midsection

What does the procedure entail?

A tummy tuck surgery is designed to treat issues in both the upper and lower areas of the abdomen simultaneously. Patients who are dealing with weakened stomach muscles or an excess layer of skin around the belly can benefit greatly from abdominoplasty, as it smooths out the regions both above and below the belly button while improving contours in the midsection.

What is the Recovery Period Like?

While a tummy tuck procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis, patients must be aware that they will need to arrange to have someone drive them home from the procedure and help them around the house for the first few weeks. Patients will be given a compression garment which will need to be worn for as long as six weeks (this garment will be fitted to their size prior to the procedure). There may also be drains in place to help release any remaining fluids in the body. More information regarding these aspects of the procedure will be provided during the consultation process.
