a tummy tuck makes your belly beautiful

The 100-dollar word for this procedure is an “abdominoplasty.” We prefer a tummy tuck in Los Angeles, because it really can tighten your tummy for a perfect aesthetic midriff.

A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. We offer several types of tummy tuck procedures, including:

  • Full tummy tuck
  • Inverted-T tummy tuck
  • Mini tummy tuck
  • Extended tummy tuck

This procedure is ideal if you have excess skin and fat in the abdomen caused by pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. A tummy tuck can help to restore a flatter, more toned, and youthful appearance to the abdominal area.


What a tummy tuck Treats

  • Loose skin
  • Excess skin and fat
  • Weakened tummy muscles
  • Stretch marks

Benefits of Paranasal Augmentation in Los Angeles

Younger Face

A mid-face augmentation provides a younger appearance by filling in hollows around the nose and reducing lines and wrinkles.

Long Lasting

Because we use implants, the positive lifting and filling results are permanent.

Complementary Ability

We often perform a mid-face augmentation in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures, such as rhinoplasty.

The TUMMY TUCK Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines that a tummy tuck in Los Angeles is the best option, your surgery can be scheduled, and you’ll be filled in on the pre-surgery preparation details.



Depending on the results of your consultation, 1 of our 5 tummy tuck procedures will be chosen:

  • Full Tummy Tuck
  • Mini Tummy Tuck
  • Circumferential Abdominoplasty
  • Lipoabdominoplasty
  • Inverted-T

You’ll receive general anesthesia, and the surgery will take between 2 to 5 hours, depending on the extent of the procedure. The incisions will be closed with sutures, and a compression garment will be applied to aid in healing.



You can expect to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the days following the procedure. We will provide you with pain medication and instructions for care, and we will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

Most patients are able to return to work within 2 to 4 weeks following the procedure, depending on the extent of the surgery and the nature of your job. It is important to avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for at least 6 weeks after the procedure to allow your body to heal properly.
