Mini Tummy Tuck in Beverly Hills

Fast recovery abdominoplasty with laser liposuction under local anesthesia

Dr. Dass has a customized procedure to help patients who've found their skin isn't bouncing back after significant weight loss or the birth of a child. The tummy tuck, a plastic surgery procedure known scientifically as "abdominoplasty," restores curves or helps patients who've never been confident about their physique.

Best way to reduce belly fat with tummy tuck surgery

You may be among those plagued by a paunch, despite rigorous exercise and excellent nutrition. A variation on the "traditional" tummy tuck may be recommended. The "mini tuck" targets the lower abdominal region between the tissues covering your pubic bones and your belly button. The procedure involves making a small incision between the hipbones, which allows Dr. Dass, to tighten the underlying muscles and remove excess skin. Liposuction techniques may remove fat for optimal results before the incision is closed.

A full tummy tuck involves making incisions to remove tissues between your belly button and pubic area, and tightening the fascia over the abdominal muscles with sutures. Unlike the mini alternative in which the belly button remains untouched, full abdominoplasty also repositions the skin around the belly button and brings it through a tiny incision that is then sutured back in its normal position. The hip-to-hip incision is closed, and the remaining scar is well-concealed along the natural crease in the bikini line. As with its mini counterpart, liposuction can be used to get desirable contours and remove excess.

Recovery from tummy tuck surgery

  • Since the mini procedure is smaller in scope, patients enjoy a quicker recovery and can get back to normal activities in about a week.
  • Dr. Dass encourages early walking with most procedures to prevent complications, but you may not return strenuous physical activity for around four to six weeks after the full procedure.
  • If patients have any concerns about their recovery, they are encouraged to contact their doctor for an evaluation or for further information.
All surgeries are performed at an accredited facility and only after a thorough consultation. Call (855) 496-4646 to schedule yours.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
