Enhancing Your Abdominal Contours
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the abdomen’s appearance by removing excess skin and fat while tightening the underlying muscles if needed. Additionally liposuction can be added to further highlight your tummy tuck result. Dr. Christopher Hamamdjian believes in developing a custom surgical plan to fit your needs to highlight your Radiance.

Why is a Tummy Tuck Done?
There are various reasons why people choose to undergo a tummy tuck. The most common motivations include:
- Excess Skin and Fat: Significant weight loss, pregnancy, or the natural aging process can lead to loose skin and pockets of fat in the abdominal area. Despite diet and exercise, these concerns may persist, making a tummy tuck a viable option.
- Damaged Abdominal Tissues: The separation of the abdominal muscles often occurs after pregnancy or significant weight fluctuations. A tummy tuck can correct the damaged tissues (diastasis recti) by suturing the muscles, resulting in a tighter and more toned midsection.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck with Liposuction?
If you are close to your ideal weight but still experiencing skin laxity and stubborn fat in your abdomen, a tummy tuck with liposuction may be the appropriate surgery for you.

Tummy Tuck Surgery: What to Expect
Understanding what to expect before and after a tummy tuck can help you physically and mentally prepare.
- Anesthesia: we will administer general anesthesia or intravenous sedation to ensure your comfort during the surgery.
- Incision Placement: Dr. Hamamdjian will make an incision, typically from hip to hip, that is strategically positioned to be concealed beneath clothing and swimwear.
- Tummy Tuck Techniques: Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Hamamdjian may perform a traditional tummy tuck or a modified technique, such as a mini tummy tuck or extended tummy tuck.
- Recovery: After the surgery, you will be taken to a recovery area where you will be closely monitored by medical staff. Depending on the extent of the procedure, you may need to stay overnight in the surgical facility.
- Postoperative Care: Following the surgery, you must follow Dr. Hamamdjian’s instructions regarding wound care, medication, and activity restrictions. It is crucial to have a support system in place to assist you during the initial recovery period.
- Swelling and Discomfort: Swelling and discomfort are common after a tummy tuck. Dr. Hamamdjian may prescribe pain medication and recommend compression garments to minimize swelling and support the treated area.
- Scar Management: While scarring is an inevitable part of any surgical procedure, Dr. Hamamdjian can provide you with scar management techniques, such as topical treatments or silicone sheets, to help minimize their appearance over time.
