As much as we hate to admit, our external appearance is directly tied to our inner self-confidence. Whether you are navigating post-pregnancy weight loss or simply losing extra pounds, it often feels like you cannot achieve desired results. That is when the realization comes that you cannot diet or exercise away excess skin.
“People find they lose subcutaneous fat more easily in the upper body, while belly fat and skin remains,” says Dr. Davila, “a problem that only worsens through your 30’s, 40’s and beyond despite maintaining the same level of physical activity and dietary habits.”
If you are struggling with a similar issue, the silver lining is that ESANA has assisted numerous people in this situation. We understand you want to feel fantastic in whatever clothing you wish to wear, from normal every day outfits, athletic gear to swimwear.
Feeling good in your body again is possible! For many ESANA patients, a tummy tuck / abdominoplasty is a solution that has helped them regain that confidence and achieve their personal goals.
Abdominoplasty: The Details
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and can repair any muscle weakness. It works by contouring your mid-section to re-shape your abdominal wall. It is a procedure that requires general anesthesia and takes anywhere from one to three hours. Our surgeons will carefully remove excess skin and fat and repair any separated muscles, leaving you with a flatter stomach. Post-surgery, you will need to heed your surgeon’s instructions to ensure that the area heals appropriately. While it is a procedure that requires some downtime, the transformational results will make it worthwhile.
Many question whether they need a tummy tuck or if other treatment options like CoolSculpting or Evolve can help them reach their physique goals.
Every person is different and depending on a physical exam, our physicians can determine which treatments would be best. CoolSculpting or Evolve are skin toning and fat reduction treatments that require little to no downtime. While they are effective and incredible treatment options for some looking to improve targeted areas, those looking to shed excess skin may experience superior results from surgical removal performed during a tummy tuck.

You diet, you walk, you run – you may even do nightly crunches, but stubborn belly fat often seems impossible to reduce. “People find they lose subcutaneous fat more easily in the upper body, while belly fat remains,” says Dr. Davila, “a problem that only worsens through your 30’s, 40’s and beyond despite maintaining the same level of physical activity and dietary habits.”
“It hurt when I ran,” says Heather, age 37, a recent patient of ESANA’s Dr. Pan. “After having my twins, I found my stomach had stretched, and the muscles weren’t the same. My husband was sick of my complaining about it.” Heather found she needed layers of tight clothing around her abdomen so that the skin would not bounce up and down. By the time her twins were two, she started thinking about tummy tuck surgery.
You’ve had bariatric surgery and are thrilled with the weight you’ve lost. However, significant loss of weight often results in excess skin that may mar the effect of a slimmer body. As a result, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) report the fastest rate of growth in procedures specifically associated with massive weight loss in four years. This growth follows a similar increase in weight loss surgeries.Continue Reading The Rise of Tummy Tucks in the U.S. and its Benefits

Liposuction has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures because it can handle those tough spots that even your exercise routine and diet can’t manage. You know, the hips and buttocks that strain our favorite pairs of pants, thighs that chafe, and the “muffin top” bulges that are difficult to hide. Other common areas for liposuction include excess fat under the chin, the back and even around the knees sometimes.Continue Reading Liposuction—Slimming and Reshaping the Tough Spots!
One of the hottest trending search terms in plastic surgery these days is the “mommy makeover.” Although probably a misleading term (we prefer pre-pregnancy restoration), this refers to one or more plastic surgery procedures that restore women’s post-pregnancy bodies, usually of the breast and/or abdomen. These procedures include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, as well as liposuction, mini-tummy tuck, or a full tummy tuck (otherwise known as abdominoplasty).Continue Reading Searching for a ‘Mommy Makeover?’
