What is a Tummy Tuck?
Sagging skin and pockets of fat surrounding the abdomen can be a frustrating challenge for both men and women. Losing weight, having children, and the natural aging process are common reasons why you may not be able to achieve a slimmer stomach. A tummy tuck is a cosmetic enhancement procedure that tightens and reshapes the abdominal area, offering youthful outcomes for patients in Los Angeles, CA. This procedure performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias can be customized according to your unique needs. To hear more about tummy tuck surgery for getting a tighter, more defined stomach, contact Southern California Center for Surgical Arts today.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
Prior to tummy tuck surgery, you will have a consultation with Dr. Elias to form a personalized treatment plan based on your goals. It's important to keep in mind that a tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure, but is a technique to remove excess skin. This procedure is performed using general anesthesia. To begin, an incision will be made according to the amount of loose skin. Some individuals with severe lax skin may require a full tummy tuck. This method places the incision from one hip to another, just above the pubic area. Other patients with minimal skin wrinkling may be better suited for a less invasive method. After your tummy tuck procedure, you will be monitored and sent home wearing a compression garment to reduce swelling. Walking upright will be challenging at first, so be sure to rest for a few days. Resuming normal movement becomes easier as you heal. Most patients can resume their regular routines within approximately two weeks.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.
I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
