What Is a Tummy Up/Upper Abdominal Lift?

Dr. Perlman and the staff of Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre proudly offer the Tummy Up/upper abdominal lift to our patients. Dr. Perlman developed and perfected this technique over the course of ten years to offer his patients an alternative to traditional tummy tucks. Tummy tucks are typically recommended to patients who have fat above and below their bellybuttons or only below their bellybuttons. Many of our patients, however, have fat only above their bellybuttons, an area that is not addressed by traditional tummy tuck procedures.

Am I a Good Candidate for Tummy Up/Upper Abdominal Lift?

During your consultation appointment, Dr. Perlman determines the best treatment plan to give you the flat, toned stomach that you want. You may be a good candidate for the Tummy Up/upper abdominal lift procedure if you

  • Have localized areas of fat on your upper abdomen
  • Have excess or loose skin on your upper abdominal area
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle, including maintaining a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise, as well as being a non-smoker

The Tummy Up/upper abdominal lift is not intended to be a weight loss solution.

What Is the Process for a Tummy Up/Upper Abdominal Lift?

As the innovative mind behind the Tummy Up/upper abdominal lift, Dr. Perlman has perfected the procedure to help his patients feel more confident about their midsections. General anesthesia or intravenous sedation is administered to help you remain comfortable. For your Tummy Up/upper abdominal lift, a small incision is made in the crease just under your breast. The placement of the incision helps to hide the scar when you fully heal. Excess skin is removed, and Dr. Perlman tightens the skin, muscles, and other tissues. Dissolvable sutures may be used to hold the tissues in place. The primary incision is closed, and a bandage is placed over the incision. You may be required to wear a special compression garment during your recovery period.

How Much Does a Tummy Up/Upper Abdominal Lift Cost?

The cost of your Tummy Up/upper abdominal lift is based upon your individual cosmetic needs. Dr. Perlman works with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your cosmetic and financial goals. You receive a detailed cost estimate after your consultation appointment. Please visit our finance page if you would like to know more about payment options.
