For women and men alike, sagging skin and pockets of fat surrounding the abdomen can be frustrating and challenging despite efforts to get rid of it. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are the typical reasons why someone may not be able to attain a tighter and slimmer tummy. Skin tightening of the abdomen is a cosmetic enhancement that reshapes the abdominal region, creating great outcomes for patients. Pasadena, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias performs abdominoplasty that is based on the patient's needs. This popular surgery at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery allows men and women the chance to have a toned, smaller abdomen.

If you have sagging skin, as well as unwanted fat in the stomach, this cosmetic surgery can help reclaim a slimming and more toned look. Dr. Elias suggests you be at a stable weight prior to surgery. Tummy tuck surgery is not a weight loss procedure — it removes loose skin. Liposuction is generally implemented during the procedure to remove fat. If your tummy section has good skin tautness, but you are still unhappy with how your tummy looks and feels even on a healthy diet, you may be more suited for liposuction. Women considering this treatment should be past pregnancy to ensure the results are not affected.

This procedure is performed using general anesthesia. There are numerous surgical options to consider when this surgery is performed by Dr. Elias, which is applied toward the patient's specific goals. To start, the incision length is chosen based on the quantity of excess skin. Some patients with an abundance of sagging and loose skin might benefit best from a full tummy tuck. This abdominoplasty technique makes the incision along the lower abdomen from hip to hip, just above the pubic area. Some individuals who have minimal skin looseness may be better candidates for a less invasive technique. These individuals still benefit from an abdominoplasty but will simply have a smaller scar. Regardless of the nature of the surgery, all abdominoplasty procedures at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery involve the removal of sagging skin and fat removal.

After your tummy tuck surgery, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression garment to reduce swelling. Walking upright will be difficult at first so you should rest for several days. Moving about becomes easier once the tightness subsides and the incision begins to heal. Most patients can generally resume normal activities in about two weeks.

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:

Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
