10 Best Tummy Tuck Surgeons in Los Angeles

When all the efforts of following the proper diet and exercising to get rid of the excess fat fail, tummy tuck procedures help to get the desired results with the proper body contouring process. Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedures are some of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures that produce drastic results within a short period. The underlying abdominal muscles either get stretched or damaged due to several reasons like pregnancy, obesity, etc. A tummy tuck is the best option to correct this condition of muscles since it helps to remove the excess skin from the body and tighten the muscles. Not only this, but such a procedure also helps to remove the excess fat from the area if combined with the liposuction process. According to the sources, more than 130,000 tummy tuck procedures were performed in the US in 2018. In this article, we have concluded the list of topmost tummy tuck surgeons in Los Angeles. Let’s read further to know the details of each surgeon.

Dr. Garth Fisher

Dr. Garth Fisher

I have come to appreciate the fact that artistic perfection seems to be a separately developed skill. It consists of a myriad of components: ability, dexterity, proficiency, aptitude, and competence, yet not all surgeons possess this innate confluence of skill sets. Early in my training, I encountered brilliant surgeons from pedigreed institutions of high academic renown. Not all were gifted surgeons. Some were phenomenal teachers and others produced innovative research results. Artistic perfection does not seem to be based upon intellect or intelligence or perhaps even where one trained. Specialty certification measures certain training competency levels—however, it is not the hallmark of artistic perfection. Maybe it’s simply having the “right stuff,” a phrase that garnered the country’s attention during the heady days of space exploration. A superb athlete has it; a Pulitzer prize-winning author may have it. “It” doesn’t seem connected to any collection of specific traits. Clearly, artistic perfection alone will not make the grade, as there’s more to performing surgery than merely having “great hands.” The awesome responsibility to creatively and impeccably alter the appearance of another human is a privilege that I humbly respect.”

Dr. Garth Fisher is a world-famous board-certified celebrity plastic surgeon who is regarded as one of the best plastic surgeons in the US. With more than 20 years of experience in the medical field, his clientele mostly includes A-List celebrities, major business icons, supermodels, Fortune 500 business executives, licensed professionals, entertainment icons, fashion icons, royalty, other medical professionals, etc. from all over the world. Not only this, he became the first doctor to be selected for the ABC television show, “Extreme Makeover.”

Specialization

Dr. Garth Fisher is specialized in aesthetic plastic surgeries of the face, breast, and body and is regarded as one of the topmost plastic surgeons in the entire world. The two major elements of Dr. Fisher’s surgical philosophy are selection and perfection. He believes that his surgical plans should meet the desired aesthetic goals and requirements of his patients. To achieve this, he focuses on communicating well with his patients before beginning the surgical process. According to several sources, the Los Angeles Magazine has named him as “one of the best surgeons in Los Angeles.”At his medical center, he performs several types of tummy tuck procedures like standard tummy tuck process, mini tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck, and many more. He is known to perform the tummy tuck methods with the thin scar that disappears over time. One of the most unique features of Dr. Garth Fisher is that he takes pride in performing all surgical procedures and doesn’t allow any Residents, Fellows, or other doctors to perform the surgeries. Only in certain cases, his ‘Assistant Surgeon’ will be allowed to perform the surgeries and that too will be discussed and informed to the patients well in advance.

I initially review a woman’s aesthetic “facial frame.” The facial frame is comprised of many subtle, but also very important aspects of beauty, such as skin quality, hair color, and style, as well as eyebrow color and density. I utilize a comprehensive facial analysis to map out effective treatment plans, which may include appropriate skincare products, injectables, and laser treatments. During this initial consultation, the patient is given the opportunity to get to know my staff and me. They can also use this consultation to learn about effective and reliable ways to optimize their diet and exercise regimens to promote a healthier lifestyle. My second step is cosmetic surgical planning. Similar to an architect who first “conceptualizes” a structure, I prepare a detailed and customized plan based on the unique needs, tissue quality, and anatomical features of the patient. I evaluate the many curves, angles, and contours of facial features which include size, relationships, and proportions. Only after this detailed planning, do I use my creative design, and my eyes and hands to sculpt a more youthful, beautiful, and very natural face. We are all trained as technically competent specialists; however, I have been fortunate to have mastered the gift of creative artistry from world-renowned plastic surgeons: Dr. Steven Hoefflin, Dr. Bruce Connell, and Dr. John Williams. These surgeons are universally regarded as the pre-eminent plastic surgeons in the field and have trained me to expand my capabilities beyond mere technical aspects so that I can incorporate aesthetic artistry into my procedures. During 20 years of surgical experience, I have taken care of some of the most recognized faces in the world, and I take pride in providing the highest quality of care with excellent results. My first priority has always been patient safety. Together with my anesthesiologist and operating room staff, I have created a consistently safe, pain-free, and comfortable environment for our patients before, during, and after surgery.”

His hospital affiliations include Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and Eisenhower Health Center in California.

If you are considering plastic surgery, planning ahead can help make your recovery and the healing process more comfortable.

Prepare a recovery area at home.
Make sure that you have all the necessary things at hand including prescribed medicine, incision care supplies, comfy clothes, water, and easy-to-cook meals. Don’t forget about the things that will keep you entertained, such as books, music or movies.

Plan enough time for your recovery and get support from your loved ones.
After the surgery, your body will require several weeks to heal. Don’t rush into resuming daily activities, however, don’t turn into a couch potato either. Remember that moderation is the key.

Most importantly, prepare yourself mentally for the upcoming changes.
Any type of surgery can be stressful, so taking some time to prepare mentally is always a smart move. Eat well and take care of yourself physically during your recovery. Avoid alcohol, and try to drink plenty of water, and eat healthy foods.”

Specialization

Dr. Andrew Ordon is a board-certified plastic surgeon who is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Double Board Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the California Society of Plastic Surgeons.

For the tummy tuck procedures, Dr. Andrew believes in considering all your medical history to determine how much fat can be extracted from the abdominal area to meet your desired aesthetic goals. A detailed discussion is being held with the patients and only after taking their respective consents, he proceeds with the further procedures.

Dr Jaime S Schwartz

Seeing our patients’ joy when they see their results and feel better in their bodies is why we love what we do. Our goal is for all of our patients to be comfortable and have great experiences from the moment they walk into our office.”

Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz is a well-known board-certified plastic surgeon whose main aim is to provide the best results to his patients while considering their safety and health care. He is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery. At his medical center in Beverly Hills, he has formed a team of experienced and specialized experts and registered nurses who all work together to create a comfortable and friendly environment for the patients. Not only this, they all are 24/7 available for their patients during their recovery processes.

Seeing the inner transformation of my patients is the best part about being a plastic surgeon.”

Specialization

Every year, Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz and his expert team perform hundreds of tummy tucks procedures (signature tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck, fleur de lis tummy tuck), arm lifts, thigh lifts, back lifts, breast lifts with and without implants, and body contouring liposuction. He is an expert in performing the tummy tuck methods to remove the excess fat from the upper and lower abdomen, tighten the muscles in the abdominal area, reduce the size, and contour the waistline. His signature tummy tuck procedure includes creating a contoured waistline with defined natural curves and a belly button.

A tummy tuck is a popular procedure that removes excess abdominal skin and tightens the abdominal wall (diastasis recti) after pregnancy or weight loss for both men and women. A mini tummy tuck primarily focuses on the area below the belly button.”

Creator of “Internal Waist Trainer” Technique

Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz is the creator of a tummy tuck procedure called “Internal Waist Trainer” in which the focus is to correct the underlying muscles. Under this technique, Dr. Jaime uses Scarpa’s Fascia (a strong connective tissue) to create the internal waist trainer to give his patients a well-defined contoured waistline. Along with this method, he uses the techniques of lifting the lower region of the abdomen for public and thigh lift resulting in the complete re-shape of the midsection.

Dr. John Anastasatos

I treat all my patients with dignity, respect, humanity, humility, and open-mindedness. There is no judgment ever in my plastic surgery practice. Instead, I create a safe and sacred space for understanding, compassion, and revitalization. I understand that the consideration of a plastic surgery procedure can be a fearful thought. It is hard to trust someone with your body, appearance, image, likeness, and vision of yourself. Therefore, I shall be patient with you until you feel comfortable proceeding, and I will make the process hassle-free. I treat my profession with accountability. It represents honor and privilege for me to take care of you, and be the catalyst of your transformation and renewal. I will not “sell” you any operation or procedure. Instead, I will offer you insightful and educational consultations. I shall present you the state-of-the-art scientific information that will serve as the framework within which you can make educated and well-informed choices for yourself. I shall help you make those mature choices. I practice with integrity and accountability and I shall treat you just like I treat my family. My love and passion for the practice of plastic surgery are constant, limitless, and expansive. The work that I perform goes far beyond any remarkable physical results that I may offer my patients. It extends deeper because I get to change my self-image. Self-image is the core of a person’s mental and spiritual concept of oneself and represents their basic framework of personality and behavior. Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment. It defines a person’s abilities. Expand the self, and you expand the spectrum of what is possible and available. If I change your face I shall change your future. If I change your body I can change your personality, behavior, and even your basic talents and abilities. The development of an adequate self-image empowers an individual with new capabilities, and can even turn failure into success. Imagine that. When I improve someone’s self-image I change what is possible and available in that person’s life and future. That is a better life. That is the ultimate promise of plastic surgery. As a complete plastic surgeon, I do not only rely on superior technical skills, but I also combine psychological analysis with high aesthetic prowess. I have been practicing plastic surgery for 20 years. I have recognized that the successful outcome in aesthetic plastic surgery is not what the plastic surgeon perceives. The successful outcome in cosmetic plastic surgery is achieved when the plastic surgeon sincerely and deeply understands your vision for yourself and then delivers that vision to you. Therefore, the successful outcome in aesthetic plastic surgery can actually be subjective and pertains to your own individual pursuit of happiness. You have the right to that happiness, and the lifestyle you deserve and imagine. I will not perform on you an operation that I prefer or like. Instead, I will perform what you like, what is right for you, and what we agree on together. I am motivated by a strong innate personal need to offer superior and extraordinary results to my patients. My work is my passion and life. I am happy with myself only when my work stands out and is exceptional. My profession is my calling and I dedicate many hours daily to advance my skills and continuously innovate, evolve and perfect what I offer. This is my service and pledge to you. My approach to your care is always balanced and patient-centered. It is a privilege to serve you.”

Specialization

Dr. John Anastasatos is an expert in performing several surgical procedures like abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, facelift, breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, vaginal rejuvenation, and many more. Not only this, but he performs non-surgical treatments also like botox, Dysport, sculpture, voluma, kybella, and many more.

I have two major goals when I perform plastic surgery. The first one is to give each and every patient what she/he wants. Therefore I listen a lot to my patients during the pre-operative consultations in order to understand what they seek. Often I will see my patients 2 or 3 times pre-operatively to make sure we have proper communication, understanding of expectations, and rapport. Successful cosmetic surgery after all is about happiness. When I listen, I understand better and can deliver effectively and accordingly. The second goal has to do with me being happy with my work and my results. With every single operation, I have the personal challenge to offer an impressive result with the least possible downtime. Furthermore, I consider it a privilege to be selected by each and every one of my patients.”

In plastic surgery, and in life, there are no short cuts to success. To achieve optimal results the hard and painstaking work must be done with consistency and love.”
