Tummy Tuck Reviews
"I had my extended tummy tuck with Dr. Corbin about 7.5 weeks ago. I was a bit heavier, not like most tt patients. I am completely satisfied with my results, I never thought my stomach would look as good. My scar is healing nicely, and for almost 8 weeks out, it looks better than other people's scars that are a year out. His staff is very friendly and I feel very comfortable, that I am even contemplating more work done! I am truly happy with my results."- E.G. / Yelp / Aug 05, 2018
"Amazing results!!! - I have met with several Doctors over the past few years regarding hernia repair and a tummy tuck and none have really put me at ease like Dr. Corbin. Some were hesitant and said I may end up without a belly button but Dr. Corbin said no worries if that is the case I will make you a new one. His staff are exceptional and kind and they helped me with all my needs and if they did not have the answer they had the Doctor call me. Again, he put me at ease with all my concerns. Dr. Corbin did an amazing job and I am so happy!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 04, 2018

Ideal Candidates for Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck surgery can be offered to both men and women. If you battle loose or wrinkly skin as well as unwanted fat in the tummy section, this body contouring procedure can help reclaim a tighter and slimmer figure. Dr. Corbin recommends you to be at a stable weight prior to surgery. Tummy tuck surgery is not a substitute for weight loss, as it treats loose skin. Liposuction is usually incorporated during the procedure to reduce fat. If your abdominal area has good skin tightness and you've worked to lose weight but still aren't satisfied with the appearance of your midsection, then liposuction may better address your concerns. Women considering this treatment should be past childbearing so that the surgical outcomes are not impacted.
How Is Abdominoplasty Performed?
There are several tummy tuck methods to consider depending on your individual needs. The incision type is chosen based on the quantity of excess skin. Some patients with an abundance of hanging skin might benefit most from an extended tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck places the incision from hipbone to hipbone, just above the pubic region. Patients with minimal skin looseness may be better candidates for a mini tummy tuck. These patients still benefit from skin tightening but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of the type, all tummy tuck procedures at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery are performed under general anesthesia and involve the removal sagging skin and fat.
After your Tummy Tuck
Following this procedure, we'll carefully examine you and send you home wearing a compression garment to minimize swelling. Walking upright will be difficult for a while, so you should rest for a couple days. Standing should get easier as your muscles relax and the incision heals. Most patients are able to resume everyday functions in about two weeks. Exercise can resume after about 6 – 8 weeks or whenever Dr. Corbin gives you permission. Your abdominal area will feel tight and uncomfortable at first, but you should feel healthy and stable again after recovering.
Tone Your Tummy
Many factors can lead to a sagging abdomen that creates hanging folds of skin. We understand that it can be almost impossible to correct — tummy tuck surgery is usually the only way to overcome this. If you're tired of having stretched-out skin in your abdomen, regardless of the severity, Dr. Corbin can help you attain the body you've dreamed of. We invite you to contact our office in Brea or Beverly Hills, CA to schedule a consultation and learn more about low-interest financing options to help make your surgery easy to afford.
