Top 3 Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Dr. Ashish K. Jain is a leader in the field who mentors other surgeons. He is uniquely qualified to help you experience:

Comprehensive Enhancement

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, allows Dr. Jain to remove both excess fat and loose skin, giving you a slimmer, tighter midsection and dramatic results.

Immediately Noticeable Outcomes

Although it can take several weeks for swelling and bruising to subside, the difference between your pre-surgery body and your new figure will be immediately apparent.

A Lasting Transformation

As long as you maintain a good diet and regular exercise routine, the results of your tummy tuck can provide long-lasting satisfaction.

Why Get a Tummy Tuck?

Age, weight loss, and pregnancy are the most common reasons that our patients have excess skin and fat in their abdomen. This excess tissue can make it difficult to wear the clothes you want or engage in some activities. You may also feel self-conscious about your appearance.

Fortunately, abdominoplasty performed by our skilled surgeon in Columbus, GA, can help you achieve the lean, trim figure you want. The procedure can smooth and tighten your contours to provide results that are often unattainable through diet and exercise alone. 

A Personalized Procedure: Abdominoplasty Designed Just for You

A tummy tuck is a highly customizable plastic surgery procedure. During an in-depth consultation with Dr. Jain, you will discuss the specific parts of your midsection and the surrounding areas that bother you so that your treatment can be designed accordingly

Our plastic surgeon in Columbus, GA, can help you decide the extent of surgery to be performed and which areas to address. If you are bothered by additional areas, you can discuss incorporating treatments like a thigh lift or breast surgery into your plan. We are dedicated to providing highly individualized procedures and will listen to your concerns to design the most precise and beneficial plan for your needs.

Tummy Tuck Techniques

There are several types of tummy tuck techniques to consider when planning your procedure. Dr. Jain will make a careful assessment of your body, concerns, and goals to determine the technique that will best suit your needs.

Mini Tummy Tuck

Patients who have minor concerns about their stomachs are good candidates for a mini tummy tuck, which has the smallest tummy tuck incision. This technique usually includes the removal of a small portion of skin, skin tightening, and some fat removal. The procedure only involves changes to the abdomen below the belly button. Ideal candidates are usually within 10 percent of their ideal weight.

Traditional Tummy Tuck

This is the most common tummy tuck that is performed and is ideal for patients with a sizable amount of loose skin. Candidates have usually lost a large amount of weight or have excess flab and weakened abdominal muscles after pregnancy. The incision typically runs from hip bone to hip bone, but will be discreetly placed in the bikini line. Since a greater volume of skin is removed, the belly button may be moved to achieve a natural-looking result. Many people also choose liposuction along with their tummy tuck.

Extended tummy tuck diagram on woman's stomach

Extended Tummy Tuck

If you have excess skin that extends from the abdomen to your flanks, you may be a candidate for an extended tummy tuck to erase signs of a “muffin top.” While an extended tummy tuck is nearly identical to a standard one, the incision extends beyond the hip bones and slightly toward the back so that excess tissue on the flanks can be removed and your contours smoothed out.

Look Like?

Candidacy Factors

Good Overall Health

Patients who wish to undergo a tummy tuck should be in good overall health and able to receive general anesthesia.

Committed to Maintaining Results

Candidates should note that any future weight gain or pregnancy can reverse the results of a tummy tuck. 

Live a Smoke-Free Lifestyle

Patients who smoke should be willing to quit before surgery and during recovery, since this habit can affect your ability to heal after tummy tuck surgery. Ideally, you should plan to break the habit permanently.

Close to Goal Weight

Abdominoplasty is not a replacement for traditional methods of weight loss. The surgical procedure is only designed to enhance your figure. If you need to achieve significant weight loss, our plastic surgeons can discuss other options with you.

What Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?

The cost of this treatment varies from case to case depending on the extent of the work required and whether liposuction is involved. At our practice in Columbus, GA, we offer multiple financing options to help our patients afford plastic surgery. The only way to know for sure what a tummy tuck will cost you is to schedule a consultation with our surgeon, who can provide an estimate following your discussion.

A Surgical Timeline of Tummy Tuck Surgery

We perform all of our cosmetic surgeries in our advanced ambulatory surgical center in Columbus, GA, serving La Grange and Auburn. It is the first accredited facility of its kind in Georgia that is dedicated to plastic surgery.

Our practice in Columbus, GA, works with board-certified anesthetists. We will make sure you feel relaxed and comfortable before beginning the surgery.
1 icon


Dr. Jain will begin the surgery by making incisions between the pubic area and the belly button. Some patients may require additional incisions around the belly button if they have a large amount of excess tissue. Our doctor is skilled at making incisions strategically so that scarring is minimal and easily obscured.
2 icon

Abdominal Wall Exposed

Your surgeon will access the abdominal wall through the incisions.
3 icon

Fat Removal

If you choose to combine your plastic surgery with a form of liposuction, the surgeon will remove excess fat from your abdominal area.
4 icon

Muscle Tightening

Next, your plastic surgeon will tighten your abdominal muscles to give you a leaner, more toned appearance.
5 icon

Skin Trimming

Now, the doctor repositions the skin over the muscles and pulls it tight. Loose skin that now hangs below your pelvic area will be removed, giving your midsection a tight, fit appearance. 
6 icon


Finally, the procedure will conclude when our surgeon closes all of the incisions with sutures. You can now begin healing.

I am totally excited about my Mommy Makeover that was over due at 52! Dr. Jain & his staff are amazing! Once you become their patient, you feel like one of the family! After loosing that last stubborn 20 pounds, I had lose skin I could not tighten no matter what. He replaced my 12 yr old breast implants, & did a tummy tuck along w/ lipo on the back of my hips. 5 weeks later, I am blown away at the results! No more Mommy Swimsuits for me! Can't wait to show off my new bikini body!

Abdominoplasty Recovery

Returning Home

Depending on the extent of your plastic surgery, you may be able to return home the same day. Some patients will require an overnight stay in the surgical center for observation.


Some mild discomfort can be expected for a few days, but we will provide you with pain medications to help you manage it.


After your surgery, you may have drains placed to help remove excess fluid, and you will need to clean and empty your drains every day. Patients who do not combine abdominoplasty with liposuction may not require drains.

Compression Garment

You will also be required to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling and help your body conform to its new contours.

Down Time

Most patients will require a minimum of two weeks off from work. Exercise and physical activity can typically be resumed in six to eight weeks, or when cleared by Dr. Jain
