Why consider a tummy tuck?

The goal of the tummy tuck is to improve self-confidence in swimwear, eveningwear and everyday clothing. Dr. Lee offers advanced techniques that hides scarring and optimizes body contour. Our goal at PERK plastic surgery is to help you feel proud of your natural-appearing results and newly improved body.

Following massive weight loss or pregnancy, there is often excess abdominal skin and the six-pack muscles can be separated in the middle. This is known as rectus diastasis. Unfortunately, the excess skin or the separation of the six-pack muscles will not respond to diet or exercise. Surgical intervention is usually the ideal option.

What are the advantages of abdominoplasty?

  • Improved self-image and quality of life
  • Better abdominal contour
  • Streamlined silhouette
  • Long-lasting outcome
  • Life changing results
  • Improved confidence

Who makes a good candidate for a Beverly Hills tummy tuck?

The best way to determine if a tummy tuck is right for you is to schedule your private consultation with Dr. Lee in the privacy of her Beverly Hills or Santa Monica office.

She will spend the time to understand your unique needs and concerns, and discuss all of the best treatment options for you. At PERK, we believe a good decision is a fully-informed decision. In general, good candidates for a tummy tuck are:

  • Suffering from loose, sagging skin in the stomach area
  • Suffering from weakened or separated abdominal muscles
  • Finding that diet and exercise is not an effective solution for their concerns
  • At or close to their ideal body weight
  • Not planning on getting pregnant in the future
  • In good mental and physical health
  • With a positive, realistic expectation of outcomes

How does Dr. Lee achieve natural tummy tuck results?

Dr. Lee strives to create a result that looks organic regardless of what clothes you wear and what activity you perform. Instead of merely pulling the stomach skin flat, Dr. Lee delivers natural definition and sculpting of the lower body that appears innate and unforced. The transitions in your abdomen are smooth and seamless, and the skin stays firm yet supple. The stomach muscles are tightened and the scar is beautifully hidden within the bikini line where it is unnoticeable. Combining scientific acumen with consummate artistry, Dr. Lee is able to make you look more youthful and energized without sacrificing nuance.

One of the components that will impact your tummy tuck results and whether they appear natural or not is the belly button. Since the navel is prominently placed on the stomach, it’s easy to see if something doesn’t look quite right there. Properly reshaping the belly button after abdominoplasty is imperative and it is an aspect of your surgery that Dr. Lee takes seriously. The most obvious signs that a tummy tuck has been performed is a belly button that is too large or stretched-out, or is too high or too low on the stomach. A skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Lee will tailor your belly button contouring to your body instead of simply assuming one belly button shape or size fits all.
