Tummy Tuck

Sometimes a healthy diet and regular exercise just aren’t enough. Whether it’s through pregnancy and childbirth, weight fluctuations, or other life changes, some people develop and can’t seem to lose excess fat and skin around their midsection. If this sounds like you, you may want to consider a tummy tuck in Portland, Oregon, performed by one of our board-certified and board-eligible plastic surgeons.

To learn more about a tummy tuck or one of our other body contouring options, you can request a consultation online or call our office at (503) 292-9200.

Your Tummy Tuck

In Portland, a tummy tuck performed by Dr. O’Brien, or Dr. Zegzula can help you achieve a slimmer and more toned abdomen by reducing excess fat and skin, as well as tightening weak or separated abdominal muscles. After their tummy tuck, many patients report that they have achieved improved self-confidence and that their clothes even fit better.

If you are planning to lose a significant amount of weight, or are considering future pregnancies, you should mention this during your consultation. Your surgeon will probably suggest postponing your tummy tuck under those circumstances. It’s also important to know that a tummy tuck cannot necessarily fix stretch marks. Patients who are finished having children sometimes choose to combine liposuction or breast augmentation with a tummy tuck, a procedure often called a Mommy Makeover. Or, if loose skin is not a concern and your primary concern is excess fat, your surgeon may suggest that liposuction alone be performed, instead of a tummy tuck.

Mini Tummy Tuck

Our doctors recognize that each patient is different. They choose to offer a less invasive “mini tummy tuck” for people who are primarily concerned by excess fat in the lower abdomen (the area below the belly button). Because a smaller area is treated and the incision is smaller, many patients find that recovery from a mini tummy tuck is more comfortable than recovery would be after a full tummy tuck.

Procedure & Recovery

Each of our surgeons perform abdominoplasty under general anesthesia at an outpatient surgery center. During the procedure, your doctor will make an incision just above the pubic bone area and, perhaps, another around the navel. He or she will adjust the location and length of these incisions based on your specific needs. He or she will then reduce excess fat, tighten stretched skin, and repair weakened abdominal muscles.

As with most abdominal surgery, there will be downtime associated with a tummy tuck. After surgery, there will be some discomfort, and you’ll need to avoid positions that would place strain on the treated area. Enjoy some rest and relaxation for a week or two. After recovery is complete, you can resume your normal activities, but with a slimmer, firmer shape.
