This is the TUMMY TUCK
(aka: ABDOMINOPLASTY) where skin is removed from the front of the abdomen, the muscles tightened underneath, and the belly-button repositioned. Dr. Mehta is known for creating beautiful "innie" belly buttons which are small and virtually undetectable that surgery was performed. He also keeps a low lying incision that is easily hidden under a bikini.
COST- $8300 Package (starting price). Includes Consultation, Hospital fee, Anesthesia fee, Surgical fee, blood tests, EKG, and Chest X-ray (if needed), medications, abdominal garment, and office follow-ups. 1 overnight stay in the hospital, if needed, is $1316. May be covered by insurance.
REVISION TUMMY TUCK: If you had a Tummy Tuck elsewhere, and didn't have the outcome desired, you can still be helped. Often, minor revisional work can be done under local anesthesia making it safer and more cost effective for patients.
-Extra skin can be removed making the abdomen tighter.
-'Dog-Ears' or folds at the ends of the incision can be easily fixed.
-Liposuction can be performed to create a smaller abdomen and waist.
