We offer Tummy Tucks and Mini Tummy Tucks
Are you tired of your tummy being loose, and sagging, or protruding? Has your stomach not responded well to weight loss from exercise? Thinking about Abdominoplasty, more commonly know as a tummy tuck?
La Nouvelle Center for Medical Aesthetics, Breast Augmentation, Liposuction and Vaginal Rejuvenation specializes in Full and Mini Tummy Tuck procedures.
Mini Abdominoplasty is a procedure that immediately follows the liposuction to tighten the excess of skin after fat removal. The procedure is performed on a lower section of abdomen and is done under a local anesthesia. This is when Dr. Hanna cuts out the loose skin so that your belly looks flatter after the surgery and you wouldn't have loose skin hanging.
With the Tummy Tuck (full tummy tuck) Dr. Hanna removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. The goal is to create an abdominal profile that is younger, smoother and firmer. With the mini tummy tuck, the belly button stays in place and with the full tummy tuck the belly button is repositioned. You will notice more prominent results after the Tummy Tuck surgery.

After having 2 children I did not know what to do with the excess fat on my belly. After 6 years of thinking, I finally made the decision to go ahead with the tummy tuck operation. Everybody at La Nouvelle Spa helped me so much and took such good care of me both before and after the operation. Now, I have a new look, more self-confident. I can't express how satisfied I am with the results. I would like to thank Dr. Hanna and his staff for changing my life. I'm so happy that I made the right choice! "
Debbie L., Santa Monica
" I did my mini tummy tuck at La Nouvelle and I could not be more contented. My experience at La Nouvelle has been extremely professional, compassionate and outstanding from consultation until follow ups. The procedure wasn't like a pushover, but it was worth the results that can be achieved. I am so overjoyed because the results I received were beyond my expectations. Thank you! "
Robert H., Thousand Oaks, CA
" I had so much flap of saggy skin hanging on my stomach. In fact, I thought I looked worse than when I had all the fat! I wanted to look better, be able to wear clothes in a single digit size and enjoy different activities with my family. I struggled to lose the weight and seemed to be losing the battle. Not because I wasn't dropping pounds, but because the flab and sagging skin wasn't going away. I finally got enough courage looking into a tummy tuck procedure. After speaking to a few Dr's I knew I had found the right one when I stumble upon La Nouvelle Spa's website. Dr. Hanna was full of integrity and professionalism. I was so pleased with my tummy tuck!! I feel like I am given a whole new life and won my battle! I have no regrets, only that I should have done it sooner! Thank you so much."
" After giving birth to my child, I gained over 80 pounds and developed many hideous stretch marks. I decided to look for an option which is a plastic surgery, because I realized the bulge was not all fat. The bulge was sagging skin. I consulted with Dr. Hanna and was very impressed with his realistic approach to my tummy-tuck. Dr. Hanna delivered the results that I expected. Thank you for such an impressive tummy tuck procedure. I can now enjoy each day with great confidence!"

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in more details..
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that is performed when aging, pregnancies, weight fluctuations, heredity, and other surgeries have caused problems in the abdomen that are not or haven't been that easy to remove or reduce. A mini tummy tuck procedure removes excess skin so that you can restore weak and separated muscles in the stomach area. If you are a woman wanting to get pregnant in the near future, than we would suggest that you wait until after you have had your children before you have an Abdominoplasty procedure. Also keep in mind and know that a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is not a substitute for a weight loss exercise program.
Even though you are in good health, you may still be a good candidate for a tummy tuck. If your skin is hanging over your belt line and your tummy is protruding, not to mention, you have pockets of loose skin and fat, all the while maintaining a stable weight with good health, than you are indeed a candidate for a liposuction and a tummy tuck. After a pregnancy, some women will end up with stretch marks and have stretched abdominal muscles that can easily be taken care of with a tummy tuck procedure.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy Tucks, better known in the medical field as abdominoplasty, is when a specialist tightens up weakened abdominal wall muscles by removing the loose hanging abdominal skin. Over 80,000 men and women in America every year go through a tummy tuck procedure because regular diet and exercise don't help them like they would like, and they go around with a protruding belly that has loose hanging abdominal skin and muscles that does not look good causing them to be self conscious.
Mini-Abdominoplasty, or mini-tummy tuck, is performed only on patients that have a small amount of lower abdomen issues of loose skin and stretch marks and does not have to have their abdominal muscles tightened. At times this procedure might be done in tandem with liposuction on a patient when the patient has excessive fat but minimal or limited looseness of the abdomen.
Women should not consider additional pregnancies after tummy tuck procedures because they may have to have a second procedure to re-tighten the belly.
Along the lower pubic area, Dr. Hanna will make an incision that will go from the left hip to the right hip in an area that can be hidden underneath a bathing suit or underwear when healed so that the scar will not be seen. The loose skin from the abdominal wall will then be lifted and the muscles that give the abdomen its strength are repaired and tightened and provides an old-fashioned girdle effect.
Mini-Abdominoplasty has smaller incisions spanning only the width of the pubic area. In order to help contouring, liposuction sometimes is used on patients whose hips and flanks do have large amounts of fat in both of your abdominoplasty procedures, standard and mini-tummy tucks. Furthermore, stretched abdominal areas do not get liposuctioned because this will prevent or damage blood circulation causing scarring or skin necrosis.
Tummy Tucks give you an abdominal result that is tight as well as flat with a waist that is curvy and narrow with thighs and a butt that is firmer.
