Tummy tucks are an increasingly popular procedure in which excess fat and skin are removed from the area around the abdomen and the abdominal muscles are tightened. The result is a flattened, youthful, firm, and healthy appearance. It is most commonly performed on patients who have had significant weight fluctuations, after a pregnancy, or in the aftermath of weight loss surgery. Known clinically as “abdominoplasty,” the procedure has been performed with great frequency and success by Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, MD, FICS, FACS.
One of the most admired surgeons in greater Los Angeles, “Dr. J.,” as patients and coworkers more familiarly know him, is a master of tummy tucks. Having performed hundreds of these procedures, usually combined with another body contouring procedure, the doctor is highly experienced, and familiar with different body types, contours, and conditions. The doctor knows that every patient’s body is different and he will gladly discuss your particular options for achieving the best possible results.
An active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. J. is known both for his precision and skill as a surgeon and for having the touch of an artist. Not everyone can safely re-sculpt the human stomach in order to maximize its attractiveness while keeping scaring to an absolute minimum. (The scars that do exist are generally lower on the body than those from a Caesarian section.) A double-board certified plastic surgeon and a busy Beverly Hills practitioner for several years, Dr. J. has been the subject of effusive praise from a host of grateful patients in the wake of tummy tuck surgery.
Of course, as with any procedure, there are a number of issues to be considered prior to deciding on surgery. Recovery times may vary a great deal depending on the nature of the surgery. Moreover, since it is very rarely covered by medical insurance, the issue of tummy tuck cost may be a factor with many people. In cases of weight loss and panniculectomy, the procedure may sometimes be covered by medical insurance if it is deemed medically necessary. Even when not covered, costs are lower than you may expect. Aided by the volume of surgeries Dr.J. performs and the efficiency of his highly experienced staff, costs are kept highly affordable, especially considering that the doctor is among the very best practitioners in the competitive plastic surgery climate of Beverly Hills.
