Are you curious about the benefits of a tummy tuck? It might seem that no matter how much diet and exercise you may do, that extra pocket of stomach fat just won’t go away.
Tummy tucks, also known as abdominoplasty, address problem areas by removing unwanted fat or tissue around the waistline and/or stomach.

You can schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons, Dr. Bruno or Dr. Brown, where you may discuss your waistline contouring goals, incision type, amount of excess skin/fat to remove, and lifestyle/activity levels.
Am I A Candidate For A DC Tummy Tuck Surgery?
A good candidate for a tummy tuck procedure may include:
- Patients that are in good general health
- Patients near their ideal weight or figure
- Women who would like to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies
- Patients that have recently lost a significant amount of weight
- Patients who have realistic expectations for their results
- Patients who have excess skin or fat in the stomach region
Which Technique Should I Get For My Tummy Tuck?
Your doctor will need to work with you to determine which tummy tuck procedure you should get. Some of the options can include a full tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, or an extended tummy tuck.
- A full tummy tuck involves an incision across the hip line and around the belly button.
- A mini DC tummy tuck involves smaller incisions and is often complemented with liposuction.
- An extended tummy tuck is best suited for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, involving extending the incision around the sides and possibly the lower back.
Our surgeons will make sure to tailor your tummy tuck procedure to best suit your needs and goals, resulting in a beautiful, natural look.
DC Tummy Tuck Reviews
We interviewed a patient about their recent tummy tuck procedure. They let us know how they felt about the procedure and their experience with our practice.
We asked the patient how long she had wanted to have a tummy tuck procedure done?
“I had been seriously thinking about it for about 3 years. I had thought about it longer than that, but I started seriously considering it about 3 years ago, started doing research, looking at doctors. I didn’t know anyone who had a tummy tuck, people don’t really talk about it.”
We also asked how the patient’s overall experience was, and they let us know:
“I can’t stop saying good things about the doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery. You never know with these kinds of things and you hear so many horror stories.
I watch that show ‘Botched,’ but it was just such a great experience. If I ever need anything else done, I’d definitely go to their office, for sure.
Even afterward, the nurses and the recovery nurses and staff were great. Dr. Brown went the extra mile. And he made sure he called; he took the time to make me feel like a VIP.
I wasn’t just another patient, another number. I said to him ‘just treat me as if it was your wife.’ And he did, I felt like part of the family.
It was a great experience before, during and after, just impeccable.”
