This is a 45-year-old woman resident of Marin County who is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 135 pounds. She is a mother of two children. She underwent a full tummy tuck and tumescent liposuction of her flanks.


San Francisco, California – One of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for San Francisco Bay Area patients is the tummy tuck. For some patients who have lost a lot of weight, men and women alike, a tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat for a smoother and flatter stomach.

For women who are finished having children, the abdominoplasty is a remarkable procedure to help them achieve their pre-pregnancy figure. In addition to the tummy tuck, a waist enhancement procedure can be added to give more definition to the waist. An extremely popular procedure adds breast surgery to the tummy tuck. This is known as the mommy makeover. The breast surgery could be a breast lift with or without implants and in some cases a breast reduction.

A standard tummy tuck usually takes 4 hours and the fee for Dr. Delgado would be about $6800. The fee for Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center would be $2800. The anesthesiologist fee is $1200. The supplies run about $1050, including a pain pump, surgical garments, VitaMedica vitamins and various other supplies. These fees are just to give an estimate of costs involved; at the time of the initial consultation each patient will be given a personalized quote.

For many it seems no matter how much dieting and exercising are done, it is not possible to get a flat, smooth abdomen that the tummy tuck procedure can provide, thereby making it one of the most patient pleasing procedures available.
