Tummy Tuck

Regular exercise, a wholesome diet, and a healthy body weight can only go so far when it comes to achieving a firm, attractive midsection. While you may take good care of yourself, you might still be frustrated by a belly bulge and sagging skin. At Weiler Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Jonathan Weiler, Dr. Robyn Daugherty, and Dr. M’liss Hogan perform abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, to help patients from Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Covington, Metairie, New Orleans, and beyond attain the contoured look they envision for themselves. It may be the most effective solution when abdominal skin and muscles don’t bounce back after pregnancy or other major weight loss.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure that improves the appearance of the abdominal area. Our surgeons personalize this procedure for each patient’s unique anatomy and cosmetic goals to provide the following benefits:

  • Tightening lax, wrinkled abdominal skin
  • Flattening a belly bulge by repairing stretched, separated abdominal muscles
  • Contouring the waist and hips
  • Reshaping the belly button
  • Reducing stretch marks

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost in Baton Rouge?

At Weiler Plastic Surgery, tummy tuck surgery ranges from $10,600 to $18,000 depending on the specifics of the surgery and individual patient factors. During your personal consultation, you will receive a customized price quote for your procedure. It is worth noting that tummy tuck surgery has a 97% “worth it” rating on the RealSelf website. Our practice offers several financing options designed for plastic surgery patients who want to spread their payments over several months.

Are You a Tummy Tuck Candidate?

Women and men visit Dr. Weiler, Dr. Daugherty, and Dr. Hogan for tummy tuck surgery to renew their midsections after pregnancy, significant weight loss, and aging. Good candidates for this body contouring procedure are:

  • In good physical and emotional health
  • At or near their target weight
  • Not planning future pregnancies

Can I Combine Tummy Tuck Surgery With Other Procedures?

Multiple concerns can be addressed in one surgery by combining a tummy tuck with other procedures. After pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding, women may choose Mommy Makeover surgery to rejuvenate the tummy, breasts, and other areas. After bariatric surgery, a tummy tuck may be combined with an arm lift and thigh lift for an even greater improvement.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

Dr. Weiler, Dr. Daugherty, and Dr. Hogan perform abdominoplasty as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. They typically place an incision that spans between the hip bones just above the pubic area, and a second incision that traces the inner navel. After separating the skin from the inner tissues, your surgeon repairs the abdominal muscles if necessary. Your surgeon also performs aggressive liposuction of the belly, hips, and waist to contour the midsection. Your surgeon completes the procedure by smoothing the outer skin down, inserting the navel through its new location in the tightened skin, trimming excess lax skin, and closing the incisions.

During the surgery, two thin tubes called surgical drains are inserted through the incision to aid in removing excess fluid from treated areas to accelerate healing and reduce swelling.

A Talented Trio

Our 3 board-certified plastic surgeons are proud to offer their unique talents to women and men in their home state of Louisiana. Dr. Jonathan Weiler’s vision of delivering state-of-the-art techniques is shared by Dr. Robyn Daugherty and Dr. M’liss Hogan, who each bring skill, experience, and a woman’s touch to Weiler Plastic Surgery. As mothers themselves, Dr. Daugherty and Dr. Hogan both understand the effects pregnancy and breastfeeding can have on a woman’s body and self-image.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From A Tummy Tuck?

While recovery rates vary, most patients are ready to return to work and daily activities within 2 weeks. You will need an adult friend or family member to drive you home after surgery and help you out for the first few days. Because a non-opioid medication called EXPAREL® is applied to the surgical area during surgery, pain is typically well controlled for the first 72 hours.

Help the Healing Process

While you may not be able to stand fully upright initially, it is important to get up and walk slowly as soon as the evening of your surgery or the next morning. Light walking promotes circulation and facilitates the healing process.

You will need to wear a surgical body-shaping garment at all times for the first 2 weeks, and then as much as possible for a total of 4 to 6 weeks. The constant gentle pressure minimizes swelling and encourages smooth contours as your body heals.

Check in With Your Doctor

You will return for your first post-op check a day or 2 after surgery so we can remove your dressings and examine the incisions. Drains are usually removed at the 1-week post-op visit.

Return to Your Workout Routine

You will need to hold off on strenuous exercise for about 6 weeks or as directed by your doctor.

Enjoy a Few Perks

For one full year following your surgery, we invite you to enjoy special discounts and rewards through our Post-Op Perks program.

Will I Have a Scar After a Tummy Tuck?

While scars are unavoidable, our plastic surgeons take special care to place the tummy tuck incision where it can be concealed by underwear and swimsuits. The vast majority of patients say that the scar is worth it in exchange for the impressive improvements they gain.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much weight can I lose with a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck will likely make you look like you’ve lost weight with a slimmer waist and flatter belly but it is not a weight loss procedure. Patients typically do not lose a substantial amount of weight.

Will I lose a dress size with a tummy tuck?

Despite a minimal loss of pounds, tummy tuck patients typically lose 2 to 3 dress/pants sizes after their surgery depending on the amount of extra skin and fat that is removed.

Can insurance cover a tummy tuck?

Medical insurance typically does not cover the cost of a tummy tuck because it is considered elective, cosmetic surgery. More extensive skin removal surgery following massive weight loss may be partly or fully covered if a physician says the procedure is medically necessary.

Are tummy tuck results permanent?

Results can be maintained indefinitely if you keep your weight stable and don’t become pregnant.

Is tummy tuck surgery safe?

Tummy tuck surgery is considered safer than ever today, thanks to advanced surgical techniques such as longer-lasting numbing agents, and improved pre-op measures that significantly minimize the risk of complications. Weiler Plastic Surgery enjoys an excellent safety record for tummy tuck surgery and all other procedures.
