About Abdominoplasty Surgery
For adult individuals, sagging skin and unwanted fat surrounding the abdominal region can be a source of frustration despite efforts to reduce it. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are the main reasons an individual may not succeed at trying to reclaim a slim and tight tummy. An abdominoplasty is a body contouring procedure that reshapes the abdominal region, producing youthful-looking outcomes for patients. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia performs tummy tuck surgery that is tailored based on the amount of excess skin and fat present. This cosmetic treatment at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery allows individuals the opportunity to have a slimmer, tighter tummy and restored confidence.
Tummy Tuck Ideal Candidates
Tummy tuck surgery can be successful for both women as well as men. If you are frustrated with sagging skin in addition to unwanted fat in the lower abdomen, this cosmetic surgery can help reclaim a slimming and more toned silhouette. Dr. Movagharnia suggests you be at a stable weight before undergoing this treatment. Tummy tuck surgery is not a procedure to help you lose weight — it reduces loose skin. A form of liposuction is usually incorporated during the procedure to eliminate fat. If your lower stomach has good skin tautness, but you still are not satisfied with the appearance of your midsection even though you have worked to lose weight, we may recommend liposuction. Women interested in abdominoplasty should be past childbearing to ensure the results are not affected.
Tummy Tuck Reviews
"Going in for a consult for my breasts, liposuction, tummy tuck and labiaplasty I have to say I was extremely nervous and embarrassed. Dr. Fara and his office staff were so amazing at making me feel comfortable and welcome. I drove an hour and a half to see Dr. Fara for consult, surgery and follow up visits and it was 100% worth the drive. My husband and I absolutely LOVE my new body and I am still only 5 weeks post op. I never in a million years thought I could feel so sexy and confident. My labia is no longer droopy, my belly is flat and my breasts are full and look and feel real. I could text Dr. Fara any day, anytime and he would respond immediately which was very comforting in times of pain or concern. I was also surprised at how quickly I was up doing my normal activities. I would definitely return to CCRS for any further surgeries and would recommend Dr. Fara to anyone, in fact I have 2 family members already wanting to go to him for surgery because they are so amazed with the new me!!! I cannot wait to wear a regular bathing suit next summer instead of hiding under a granny one!!Again I love you Dr. Movagharnia and staff, you have changed my life :)"- C.M. / Google / Mar 18, 2014

"My surgery was performed on August 26th by Dr. Movagharnia. He completed a hernia repair, tummy tuck, and lipo suction of my stomach and back. He educated me prior to my surgery and was very detailed about his procedure. He did an excellent job in preparing me for everything I needed prior to surgery and after. After surgery he is very personable and followed up with me once I was at home to see how things were going. In one week I can see my results and they are awesome! He did a beautiful job and I am very pleased with his work! I highly recommend him!"- M.C. / Google / Mar 18, 2016
"Dr. Movagharnia is a fantastic surgeon. His bedside manner is incredible and I could appreciate his humor. I had a consultation with him back in 2005 and I finally had my surgery 12/2013. I did research of other surgeons in the metro Atlanta area but my first and only choice was Dr. Movagharnia. When I had my consult in 2013 I could feel the same caring manner from him that I felt back in 2005. I was going in to consult for a tummy tuck and liposuction. I remember asking about lipo of my upper arms. He said “I am not going to lipo your arms…just use some arm weights”. It was refreshing to see a physician not trying to make extra money. He was more concerned about my health than the extra dollars from the lipo of my arms.The fact is he values his patient’s health over dollars and for that I was truly impressed. I definitely cannot forget to mention the professionalism of the front office Judy and Zahra. These women are so kind and courteous. Whenever you call the office their greeting is always warm and pleasant. At each office visit I always felt like they were truly concerned with my well being. They are very knowledgeable about many things. I remember calling to ask a question and Zahra was quite capable of answering my question. Also Judy took care of all my paperwork needs for my job. They are both amazing and their presence complements the office. I have wanted this surgery for many years and I am so ecstatic with the outcome. I am 12 weeks post-op. I still have some swelling but I can definitely see the definition of my shape. I have referred many people to his practice. A male friend asked me about my surgery and said his wife wanted to have it done. I suggested that for a Mother’s Day gift he take her in for a consultation. He seemed excited about the idea…we will see what happens. I would recommend Dr. Movagharnia for anyone considering cosmetic surgery."- V.G. / Google / Mar 18, 2014

If you are looking for a surgeon, look no further he is the best."- C. / RealSelf / Jul 16, 2014
Tummy Tuck Surgical Technique
Body contouring of the abdomen is performed with general anesthesia. There are various techniques to consider when this surgery is performed by Dr. Movagharnia, which is unique to the individual's specific goals. To start, the incision size is chosen based on the quantity of skin that should be excised. Some individuals with extensive lax skin might benefit best from an extended tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck makes the incision from hipbone to hipbone just on top of the pubic line. Some individuals with minimal skin looseness but still feel upset by their appearance may be better candidates for a mini tummy tuck. These individuals still benefit from skin tightening but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of the type, all abdominoplasty procedures at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery involve the excision of sagging skin and liposuction.
What to Expect with Tummy Tuck
Following this procedure, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression device to reduce swelling. Walking upright will be a bit painful in the first few hours, so you should take it easy for a few days. Moving about becomes less painful once the tightness subsides and the incision heals. You can resume everyday functions in about two weeks. Workouts can begin around six weeks or earlier if you are given permission by Dr. Movagharnia. The abdominal area will feel tight and uncomfortable, but once healed you will look and feel normal again.
