Tummy Tuck Candidates in Los Angeles

What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, more properly known as an abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is used to remove excess fat and loose skin in the abdominal area and repair weakened abdominal muscles.  Dr. David Stoker, a tummy tuck surgeon in Los Angeles, states, “The tummy tuck is one of my favorite procedures to perform because of the dramatic, immediate results I can achieve for my patients.” The impressive results that can be obtained from a tummy tuck have made it a longtime patient favorite as well.

How does a tummy tuck work?
A tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure that is performed under general anesthesia.  Through an incision in the lower abdomen, a large amount of excess skin (and with it, any associated stretch marks) can be removed. Then, Dr. Stoker will go to work on removing large quantities of abdominal fat and tightening the weakened abdominal muscles. The remaining skin is then re-draped across the abdomen and a brand new belly button is created. Finally, because the pubic area is adjacent to the lower abdomen, Dr. Stoker finishes the tummy tuck by tightening and lifting the pubic region.

Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck?
You are a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you suffer from sagging, loose skin and excess lower abdominal fat. These are the main therapeutic indications for a tummy tuck. Other conditions that make you a good candidate for a tummy tuck are weakened abdominal muscles, laxity (weakness) of the pubic region, and stretch marks on the lower abdomen.

Other criteria that you should meet in order to be considered a good candidate for tummy tuck include:

  • being a non-smoker
  • otherwise in good health
  •  not classified as “morbidly obese”

Why consider Dr. Stoker for your tummy tuck?
Dr. Stoker has developed a reputation as a leading authority on tummy tuck surgery.  He has:

  • Written a textbook chapter on abdominoplasty and body contouring
  • Conducted large-scale clinical studies on abdominoplasty safety
  • Taught courses on abdominoplasty and body contouring for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) for over five years
