Tummy Tuck  surgical treatments Dennis Dass, MD in Beverly Hills
When diet and exercise fail to address excess fat or skin in the abdominal area, many patients turn to board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Dennis Dass, to discuss the possibility of having a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is one of the most popular surgical treatments offered in his practice. He sees both men and women seeking this treatment to enhance their body contours and give them more self-confidence to wear swimsuits and other fitted clothing.

Dr. Dennis Dass performs tummy tuck surgeries and provides a tummy tuck recovery timeline and aftercare instructions for patients to follow. Post-procedure, patients may need to take oral medications for pain or to reduce the likelihood of infection in the treatment area. Patients may need to drain and care for the surgical site, and know what to look for in terms of issues that may need further attention. The doctor also suggests one or two follow-up appointments to check progress and ensure all is healing as expected.

Patients ask: "What is the average recovery time for a tummy tuck?"

Recovery time from surgery varies greatly from patient to patient. Social downtime may be needed as well as time off of work, especially if patients have jobs that require strenuous lifting or long days on their feet. Exercise should be slowed and gradually added into one's daily routine weeks after the procedure. Patients should also take great care in changing bandages and taking it easy to reduce the chance of issues arising. Dr. Dennis Dass, MD suggests patients consider a week or two of downtime to allow the body the chance to heal before integrating regular activities into their schedule. Patients with high-intensity jobs may require longer time for returning to work than patients who have desk jobs or low-impact positions.

If you reside in or around the area of Beverly Hills and want to speak with a quality surgeon about the process of recovery after the tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Dennis Dass, MD can walk you through treatment from start to finish.

    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.*
