Choosing a Tummy Tuck Surgeon

Choosing a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Surgeon

Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica

There are many plastic surgeons in the Los Angeles and Santa Monica, California area competing for your business, making it overwhelming to choose the right tummy tuck surgeon. However, this might be the single most important choice you make during the entire tummy tuck process. The right tummy tuck surgeon will be able to listen carefully to your concerns and aesthetic goals, and he will have the skills necessary to help you achieve the exceptional outcome you desire.

It is important to evaluate the following criteria when choosing your tummy tuck surgeon to ensure you work with the best doctor to address your unique individual needs.

Education and Training

The skill level and experience of your plastic surgeon is crucial to achieving your desired outcome on your tummy tuck. Look for a doctor who took the time to undergo specialized training in the field of plastic surgery. Your surgeon should also regularly participate in continuing education courses to ensure he is familiar with the most advanced techniques being used today.


Ultimately, your goal is to achieve the best outcome possible. In order to be confident that your tummy tuck surgeon can deliver the beautiful results you desire, you should ask to see a variety of before and after photos of former patients. This will give you a good idea as to the quality of work the surgeon achieves, and what you can expect from your tummy tuck procedure. However, it is important to remember that everyone has a different body type, a different level of overall health, and a different commitment to following the surgeon’s tummy tuck recovery instructions. These factors will all have an impact on the results of your procedure.

It is often helpful to ask friends and family members for referrals. If you know someone who had a good experience with a particular tummy tuck surgeon and achieved good results, it is likely you may have a similar experience.

Comfort Level

Most importantly, you must feel very comfortable with your tummy tuck surgeon. He should make you feel relaxed throughout the entire process and be willing to spend as much time as needed to answer all of your questions before moving forward with the procedure.

Your tummy tuck surgeon should also spend a significant amount of time explaining every aspect of the procedure to you in great detail, including the risks, benefits, potential complications, surgical procedure, and recovery process. This detailed explanation will ensure you are prepared to make a fully informed decision regarding your procedure, and it will help increase your comfort level with your tummy tuck surgeon.
