About Your Tummy Tuck Consultation
Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica
The best way to get more information on abdominoplasty is to talk directly to a skilled Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. To meet with Dr. Eugene Kim, simply schedule an in-person consultation for a time that is convenient. When you come in to our office, our team will walk you through every step of the process and make it easy for you to get the answers you are looking for.
Determining Your Candidacy
The tummy tuck procedure is an effective way to enhance the appearance of your abdominal area. However, there are guidelines for who should have this surgery. At E. Kim Plastic Surgery, we want to make sure you meet the physical requirements for tummy tuck, along with the emotional ones. Abdominoplasty is not for seriously overweight individuals; it is recommended for people who are in good health with a normal to near-normal weight range, and who would like to tone and firm their abdominal area.
Dr. Kim will perform a comprehensive examination and ask you for your health history. He will make sure you have the right characteristics for success with this procedure and evaluate your abdominal skin and muscle condition. Also, Dr. Kim will ask you a series of questions about your reasons for surgery and your expectations. We feel it is important that every tummy tuck patient have a realistic view of the surgery and what it can accomplish before we approve them for the procedure.
Making an Informed Decision
Remember that the initial consultation is your opportunity to ask questions and learn all you can about the risks and benefits of a tummy tuck. You can review before and after photos, talk about fees and financing, and ask the surgeon about his qualifications. If there is anything you are concerned about, such as healing time or anesthesia type, do not be afraid to ask. Once you have had time to think about all the details, you can go ahead and schedule your surgical procedure.
Dr. Eugene Kim and his team would be delighted to spend some time with you and discuss your candidacy for the tummy tuck procedure. We pride ourselves on taking enough time with each patient to give him or her a thorough understanding of the steps involved, as well as the anticipated results.
