WHO WE ARE
About Tummy Tuck Albuquerque NM
It’s important to understand that sometimes exercise regimens and weight loss, while a great idea and highly beneficial to a healthy lifestyle, will not always deliver the desired results you’re working for. Especially if those results are around your midsection, which is one the most difficult areas to target.
Albuquerque Tummy Tuck is experienced in the evolution of the waistline and we know why people sometimes need an extra boost to achieve the desired results of a slim, smooth abdomen. Due to aging, genetics, significant weight fluctuations or multiple pregnancies, the abdominal skin can become stretched and lax and unable to shrink back to normal proportions.
Abdominal muscles can become weakened or even separated and cannot heal by themselves, but rather, need to be repaired. So sometimes your best intentions are simply not enough. Skip the frustration, put away the embarrassment, let Albuquerque Abdominoplasty walk you through the process to a slimmer, trimmer abdomen that you can feel great about.
Don’t settle for some cheap tummy tuck Albuquerque. Seeking the best tummy tuck doctor in Albuquerque will bring you the safest, most satisfying results. Accredited, board-certified plastic surgeons with both experience and expertise have been serving Albuquerque and her surrounding areas for many years and are why Tummy Tuck Albuquerque knows we can improve your appearance and give you a whole new outlook.

What To Expect?
Some things to consider when you’re wondering if you’re a good candidate are:
These things and many more will be discussed and decided at your consultation. Your surgeon will help you determine what is realistically achievable and which procedure(s) would be best suited to your desired outcome.
A detailed outline will be drawn up so you know exactly what to expect and how long it will take and have an idea of the tummy tuck recovery time. Abdominoplasty cost and other fees will be outlined and payment or financing options will be given so that you can work within the limits of your budgetary constraints. We encourage you to ask questions, the more you know and understand, the more satisfying your results will be.
Most generally, this is an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. The length of the surgery will depend on which procedure(s) you and your surgeon determined will deliver the desired results, but it will take approximately 2-5 hours.
A number of things happen during the surgery, but generally speaking, incisions are made and excess fat and skin are removed, abdominal muscles are tightened or repaired and the belly button may be repositioned to a more natural looking state. The incisions are made low in the abdomen so the scars can usually be hidden under a swimsuit or underwear.
Recovery times vary, but it is usually recommended that gentle walking is started within a day, even though you’re swollen and sore and you are unable to stand up straight, because it’s important to get the blood flowing to aid in healing and reduce risks of blood clots. Most people are able to return to light duty or perhaps a desk job in approximately 2 weeks. Strenuous or manual labor jobs, any heavy lifting or vigorous exercise should be avoided for as much as 6 weeks giving the abdominal muscles time to heal.
WHAT WE OFFER
Albuquerque Abdominoplasty can be life-changing for some patients. The improvements can be so satisfying on their own and when coupled with other procedures can be even more dramatic. When a healthy, active lifestyle is continued, the effects of the tummy tuck procedure can be very long lasting and only decline due to the natural aging process.
The tummy tuck procedures we offer include:
Mini Tummy Tuck
Mini Tummy Tuck Albuquerque is specifically for patients who are in great physical shape with the exception of the lower abdominal area that has a pooch or loose, hanging skin. A mini abdominoplasty focuses exclusively on the area below the navel and requires a smaller incision, leaving a smaller scar.
Full Tummy Tuck
The full tummy tuck is probably the most common and focuses on both the upper and lower abdomen. It consists of an incision just above the pubic bone along the lower abdomen and stretches from hip to hip and around the navel (belly button). Excess, loose skin and stubborn fat deposits are removed, which may include stretch marks, and weakened abdominal muscles are tightened and restored. The navel is repositioned over the abdominal area in a natural looking way.
Extended Tummy Tuck
Obviously, the name implies that a more extensive area will be covered in the extended tummy tuck. This procedure extends to the hips and flanks as well as the abdominals and requires a longer incision and perhaps a little longer recovery, but it does deliver more dramatic improvements.
Male Tummy Tuck
Men may not suffer from the after effects of multiple pregnancies, but if you have a protruding stomach bulge or are dissatisfied with your saggy midsection, a stomach tuck is an appropriate option to look into for you! Give us a call and let’s talk!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is abdominoplasty?
What is a tummy tuck? Yep, it’s one in the same. Abdominoplasty is the medical term for the very popular tummy tuck procedure. Simply put, this is a body contouring surgery to remove sagging, excess skin and stubborn fat deposits from the abdomen and restoring stretched or separated abdominal muscles delivering a slimmer, firmer, more flattering profile.
How much is a tummy tuck in Albuquerque?
Depending on the extent of the surgery needed to restore and repair your midsection to the desired result, tummy tuck prices will vary. An accurate quote for tummy tuck cost Albuquerque can be given after a consultation to help determine your goals and what will achieve them. Albuquerque Tummy Tuck offers financing or payment options to help keep the tummy tuck costs affordable.
What kind of scarring can I expect from a tummy tuck procedure?
Incisions vary based on which surgical technique is employed, but we use the smallest incisions possible to limit the visibility of your scarring. Generally the incision is made very low on the abdomen, just above the pubic bone and can be easily hidden with a swimsuit or undergarments. Another incision may be made through the belly button and is rarely noticeable. Adhering to your scar management instructions after the surgery will be important in reducing the appearance of scars and helping them to heal properly.
Can I still get pregnant after my tummy tuck?
It is highly recommended that women finish having children before opting for abdominoplasty. While it would certainly be possible to have another baby, the effects of the pregnancy will most likely reverse the effects of the tummy tuck and it would need to be done again.
Tummy Tuck Reviews
I can’t lie, the recovery was more painful than I expected, but really that is my only complaint. The surgeon and his staff were awesome, so caring and kind. And the results are amazing! I would definitely go through the 2-3 weeks of discomfort following the surgery and then still needing to take things slow for another 2-3 weeks to have the satisfying feeling of liking what I see when I look in the mirror now. Thanks so much!
This was a big decision that I went back and forth on for quite awhile before I finally just decided to go for it. Getting things arranged at work so that I would be sure I had plenty of recovery time, because I didn’t want to mess it up after going through it, was a little tricky, but once I got my ducks in a row and had the surgery, I’m never going to regret it. Best money I ever spent.
I’m just giddy...like a kid at Christmas! I love the results and I love the people who helped me through this process! Such a great surgical team and such a great office staff...and my surgeon was amazing! I so recommend this procedure and the whole team! Thanks guys!
