What is a Tummy Tuck?
Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure designed to correct multiple aesthetic concerns in the abdominal area, such as:
- Loose or sagging abdominal skin
- A protruding, disproportionate abdomen
- Excess fat underneath the abdominal skin
- Abdominal muscles that have been weakened by pregnancy or the aging process
How is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
The technique used for your tummy tuck may depend on the amount of skin or fat that needs to be removed. Dr. Wigoda typically creates incisions within concealable areas, such as those that can be covered with a swimsuit to ensure the best possible aesthetic results. Once the incisions are made, excess skin and fat are removed and, if necessary, underlying abdominal muscles are tightened.
During your consultation with Dr. Wigoda and our medical team, we will create a customized surgical plan for you that outlines what you can expect during and after your procedure.
While the price may be higher than office-based procedures, we will not sacrifice your safety and risk of a poorer outcome by cutting corners.
A wonderful place to trust and make yourself more beautiful. Everyone is so knowledgeable and friendly. Totally recommend Forever Young Med Spa.

Am I a Good Candidate for Tummy Tuck Surgery?
Men and women who want to achieve a flatter, more toned abdomen and who are at a healthy body weight without any medical contraindications may be candidates for this procedure. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment options and help you determine whether surgery is right for you.
It is important to note that major changes in weight due to weight gain or pregnancy can jeopardize your results. Good candidates for a tummy tuck should plan on no longer having children and commit to a healthy lifestyle to maintain their weight.
What Results Can I Expect?
After tummy tuck surgery, patients can expect some degree of bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort as the area heals. Dr. Wigoda will inform you on how long you should take off from work and normal activities to allow your body to heal. Your results will be monitored through follow-up appointments.
Once the initial healing process is complete, patients can enjoy a flatter, tighter stomach and increased self-confidence. Dr. Wigoda and our medical team will discuss what changes you can make to your lifestyle to help maintain your results.

The Importance of Finding a Board-certified Surgeon
Many centers advertise cosmetic surgeons as being board certified. Did you know there are only two recognized certification bodies. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
The ABPS is one of 24 medical specialty boards that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). These officially recognized boards establish common standards for physicians to achieve and maintain board certification.
So while many physicians pose as having board certification only membership in the ASPS or the ABPS and the symbols below are your assurances that your Plastic Surgeon has passed the rigorous requirements for board certification.
If you would like to see if your doctor is board-certified, please click the links below and type in the doctor’s name.
http://www.plasticsurgery.org/find_a_surgeon/ or the ABPS site is https://www.abplasticsurgery.org/ModDefault?section=SurgeonSearch
Either of these two symbols are your assurance that your doctor is officially a board-certified plastic surgeon and has passed the rigorous testing standards for this recognition. Dr. Wigoda is recognized by both boards.
