The abdominal area can be difficult to tone even with a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Also, childbirth, weight loss, and the aging process can lead to loose skin that no amount of exercise can compensate for. A Tummy Tuck could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
You’ve been working hard at the gym, focusing on your diet to lose weight and improve your body and health, you should be proud. But, if your desired weight is in hand, but your desired shape still seems a long way off, it may be time to consider a tummy tuck.

At Tummy Tuck Chicago, our board certified plastic surgeons are here to help you clear the final hurdle to a smooth, sleek contoured waistline and abdomen.
You have come to the right place if you’ve been scanning your phone for “tummy tuck near me” or “best tummy tuck doctor in Chicago.” Don’t hesitate, contact us immediately to get the ball rolling!

Certain things to consider right now include:
What To Expect?
Preparation for surgery:
The first step is to schedule a consultation. At your consultation, you’ll meet with your surgeon and together you’ll determine your suitability as a candidate based on a medical evaluation, review of your medical history and a discussion of your personal goals. The procedure will also be explained in detail, covering options, what to expect on the day of the surgery, costs and potential risks. Your surgery will be scheduled and further instructions will be given, such as things to avoid, like taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications which may increase bleeding; to stop smoking for a certain period prior to surgery; and any lab work that may need to be done.
Chicago Tummy Tuck is generally an outpatient surgery and can take several hours depending on the extent of surgery needed. You will be visited by an anesthesiologist and be made comfortable before the surgery. The surgeon starts with a horizontal incision right above the pubic hairline. Through the incision, the muscles will be tightened and repaired with sutures. The belly button may be repositioned. And, of course, excess fat and skin are removed and skin is stretched tight and sutured together.
If this is the typical outpatient procedure, you will be in recovery for a few hours before being released to a loved one who should accompany you home for rest.
Tummy Tuck Recovery Time:
You will be sore and swollen, but this will go away over time. Generally recovery takes several weeks. Most patients who have low impact jobs, can return to work after a couple of weeks. Manual labor and/or vigorous exercise is restricted for approximately 6-8 weeks to give muscles time to heal.
WHAT WE OFFER
If you are a good candidate for Chicago Abdominoplasty or mini Abdominoplasty, additional combination surgeries like liposuction may be appropriate as well. Your individual profile combined with your desired shape dictates which procedure is right for you.
Our physician has the skill, knowledge and experience to provide you with the perfect, individualized procedure to safely meet your aesthetic goals.
We have a number of services including:
Mini Tummy Tuck
Mini Tummy Tuck Chicago (mini abdominoplasty) is ideal for individuals who have a minimal amount of abdominal skin and excess soft tissue or stretch marks below the navel (belly button). Because the area that needs help is smaller, the incision is smaller than the full tummy tuck. The navel is left intact with no incision scar present. Muscle tightening and liposuction can still be done as needed.
Full Tummy Tuck
The full tummy tuck is the most common abdominoplasty Chicago procedure and most patients requesting help with waistline issues are best served with this procedure. The surgery removes the excess skin and soft tissue laxity, tightens or repairs the abdominal muscles which flattens and tones the abdominal wall, repositions the navel and improves the overall contour and profile. Liposuction is frequently performed at the same time.
Extended Tummy Tuck
The extended procedure addresses excess skin and soft tissue on the tummy, hips and flanks. Requiring a longer incision to accommodate the larger area, the incision will be somewhat longer than the full tummy tuck and covers a wider area of repair. This procedure repairs and tightens the abdominal muscles, removes more extensive amounts of loose, sagging skin in the abdomen, hips and flanks, and repositions the navel.
Male Tummy Tuck
Tummy tucks are becoming as popular for men as they have been for women! We offer all of the same procedures for our male clientele and our surgeons deal with your individual issues and suggest the procedure necessary for acquiring those slim abs you remember from your younger days.
Located on Lake Michigan, Chicago, Illinois is the largest city in the state. Known for its architecture and amazing skyline, Chicago wasn’t always a desirable American city. Historically, immigrants moving west to settle tagged the area as little more than a swampland unfit to build on. Not until national trade emerged was Chicago seen as an important transport hub between the eastern and western United States.
Centrally located, it is perfectly situated for quick flights around the country, making it an ideal location to live and work for those needing and/or wanting to travel for work or just leisure.
Lake Michigan and Lakeshore drive, so close to the city makes for awesome summers with bike paths and a variety of water sports. Taking a stroll down Navy Pier or through the city along the Chicago River is sure to make for a romantic evening. Nothing better than a cold one at Castaways after a fun day of beach volleyball at North Beach for the sports and brew enthusiast.
There’s plenty to do and see around the windy city. Great for tourists and residents alike.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a tummy tuck?
What is abdominoplasty or a stomach tuck? We’re glad you asked. Abdominoplasty is the medical term for tummy or stomach tuck. It is a popular procedure used to improve the appearance of the abdominal area by removing excess skin and stubborn fat deposits and repairing weakened abdominal muscles following significant weight loss or pregnancy. A tummy tuck for women is common when they are finished having children, although the procedures are becoming more popular with men who are looking to regain a more youthful-looking midsection.
What makes a tummy tuck procedure right for me?
Generally, a good candidate is someone who, despite exercising and diet, is unable to tone and flatten their abdominal area due to sagging, excess skin or a protruding paunch that won’t go despite their best efforts. Also, it’s important to understand that this is not a weight loss procedure. This is something you do when you have lost most of the weight (within about 15 lbs.) that you are planning to and are able to sustain that current weight.
Are there any health risks to this procedure?
Tummy tuck costs vary depending on the tummy tuck procedure you and your surgeon deem appropriate. At Chicago Tummy Tuck, we strive to keep tummy tuck prices affordable and will give you an accurate assessment of the abdominoplasty cost after we examine you and determine what will work best for your situation and your desired results. We offer payment options and financing because we don’t want the tummy tuck prices to deter you from reaching your goal.
Are there any health risks to this procedure?
All surgeries come with risks and Chicago Abdominoplasty is no exception. However, your risks can decrease when under the care of an experienced plastic surgeon and you carefully follow the recommendations given for recovery and healing. Slight risks include, Hematoma (pooling of blood below the skin), infection, scarring, changes in skin sensation/numbness, anesthesia-related complications, nerve damage, and blood clots.
Tummy Tuck Reviews
I cannot get over how much I love my new, improved waistline and flat abs. I love getting dressed in the morning and knowing that my shirt is going to sit nicely against my stomach with no unsightly bulges or bunching. Truly, the best investment ever!!!
I’m writing a thank you for my husband because this really isn’t “his thing”. I can’t believe the difference in his mood and his energy. His confidence is so much better and there’s an overall difference in the way he walks. I’m so happy for him, he deserves to feel this good and he looks amazing to me also!
An outstanding experience all the way around. The staff, the assistants, the doc!!! Everyone was so kind and helpful. I felt completely at ease and knew this was the right place for me almost as soon as I walked in. I’d been searching around for a month before I looked here and this was exactly where I needed to be. My tummy tuck looks amazing...which is probably what I should have started with, but I had to brag about the people first!
