What Is a Tummy Tuck?

  • This popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, is designed to remove excess fat and skin from your midsection.
  • A tummy tuck also tightens loose abdominal muscles, giving your stomach a toned, rejuvenated appearance.

What Is Abdominoplasty?

In this video, Dr. Ramon Robles explains what a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is and who a tummy tuck is for. Most of his tummy tuck patients are women who have had multiple children and whose skin has stretched from pregnancy. Dr. Robles uses techniques that involve minimal trauma to the area so that patients have an easy and quick recovery.

An Amazing Tummy Tuck Transformation

Omyra's Story

In this tummy tuck testimonial, Omyra discusses her experience at Robles Plastic Surgery. Omyra lost a lot of weight on her own and needed a tummy tuck for her excess skin. Dr. Robles gave her the confidence to move forward with the procedure.

Did You Know Tummy Tucks Have Medical Benefits?

Improved Posture

Loose abdominal muscles that are tightened by Dr. Robles can better support your spine, helping you stand straighter and taller. This can make you look more confident and energetic.

Reduced Back Pain

Slouching caused by excess stomach fat and weakened abdominal muscles can cause your back to ache. An improved posture due to a tummy tuck can straighten your spine, reducing back pain. 

Makes Exercising Easier

Many of Dr. Robles' Scottsdale- and Phoenix-area patients find that exercising is easier after excess midsection fat and skin have been removed with a tummy tuck.

Take a Look at the Tummy Tuck Process

Kinds of Tummy Tucks Performed by Dr. Robles

  • Standard (Full) Abdominoplasty
  • This procedure removes excess skin and fat tissue in the belly area from the navel to the pubic bone. Dr. Robles will make an incision from hip to hip to tighten the abdominal muscles and perform liposuction on the belly and the hips to create a beautifully contoured shape.
  • Mini Abdominoplasty
  • This procedure is performed for patients with a mild to moderate amount of stubborn fat tissue and excess skin in the lower abdomen below the navel. Dr. Robles will make a small incision below the navel to tighten the abdominal muscles. Liposuction can also be used in the abdomen, hips, and back to create a flatter, tighter, and more youthful appearance.

Is a Tummy Tuck the Solution I Need? Contact Dr. Robles for More Information

Your abdominoplasty should not be considered a way to lose weight. Dr. Robles will suggest you think of it more as the final step in reshaping and enhancing the contours of your body when stretched skin will not conform to your contours and stubborn fat tissue doesn't respond to diet and exercise.

Dr. Robles can explain more about the difference between weight loss and tummy tucks during your free consultation. Contact us today using our online form or call us to schedule an honest, informative discussion about your cosmetic goals with our top-rated plastic surgeon.

I had a great experience with Dr. Robles. He is very honest with his feedback and compassionate about his patients. From the start he was respectful with what I wanted done and reasonable. He also uses a precise technique that allows the recovery process to be much quicker than average! It has been almost a year now and I’m very happy with the results. Very grateful I chose him & would definitely (& do!) recommend to others.

Is Abdominoplasty a Popular Procedure?

Tummy Tuck Surgery and Recovery

Dr. Robles and our warm, knowledgeable staff strive to provide every patient with five-star care from your initial consultation through all of your post-surgery follow up visits. 


During your abdominoplasty consultation at our Phoenix practice, Dr. Robles will review your medical history and cosmetic goals, and will decide if a full or mini abdominoplasty is better for you. He will also address any questions or concerns you may have and give you a list of pre- and post-surgery instructions to follow. 

Surgery Day

After you arrive at our accredited surgery facility, our highly experienced anesthesiologist (30 years) will administer anesthesia. Dr. Robles will then make the necessary incisions, the number and length of which will depend on the complexity of your procedure.

The Procedure

Dr. Robles will expertly remove excess skin and tissue, tighten loose ab muscles, and perform liposuction. Before closing the incisions, he will insert small tubes to drain away fluid buildup and aid recovery. A special compression garment will be placed over the bandage to help control swelling and inflammation.


Dr. Robles' use of the latest tummy tuck techniques allows for a faster, more comfortable recovery period. You may experience some mild soreness and swelling for the first few days, but you can expect a full recovery in about six weeks. Depending on your line of work, you may be able to go back to work after about two weeks. You'll be given prescriptions to ease discomfort. Dr. Robles will also provide guidance regarding a healthy diet and exercise routine to improve your recovery and overall results.

Tummy Tuck Cost and Payment Options


The cost of your procedure will depend on its complexity. Our Phoenix practice will provide you with a free quote during your consultation.


Medical insurance usually doesn't cover tummy tucks unless it serves a practical purpose. Patients can use a credit card, but interest rates are high.


Our practice offers CareCredit® financing, to make out-of-pocket costs affordable to our patients.

Am I a Good Tummy Tuck Candidate?

Generally, good candidates for an abdominoplasty include patients who are:


Smoking can inhibit healing. If you are a smoker who wants to undergo a tummy tuck, you should quit several months in advance and plan to drop the habit permanently.

Done Having Children

Pregnancy can stretch your skin, reversing the results of your procedure.

Close to Target Weight

A tummy tuck isn't a weight loss treatment - instead, it is intended to put the finishing touches on a weight loss achievement or restore your figure after childbirth. You should be within 30 pounds of your goal weight and plan to maintain a healthy weight after surgery since fluctuation can reverse the effects.

In Good Health

Suffering from medical conditions like heart disease or uncontrolled diabetes may make tummy tuck surgery unsafe.
