Did you know that you can use your tummy tuck incision to address other issues and achieve your dream body?
Through a tummy tuck incision, you can get a flatter and more sculpted abdomen while also increasing your breast size, shaping your pubic area, lifting your thighs, or repairing your abdominal hernia in one fell swoop.
Getting a tummy tuck with Dr. Siamak Agha, SoCal’s premier tummy tuck plastic surgeon, allows you to add the following procedures to your abdominoplasty without the need for additional incisions. You’re essentially getting the second procedure scar-free!
Check out these 2-in-1 procedures below.
Tummy Tuck with Trans-Abdominal Breast Augmentation
Want a flatter tummy and fuller boobs at the same time?
Getting a trans-abdominal breast augmentation with your tummy tuck is an effective way of inserting implants through your tummy tuck incision without the need for any unsightly breast incisions.
Since it’s essentially a scarless breast procedure, your boobs won’t appear surgically altered, resulting in an appealing and natural-looking bust. No one else would even know that you enhanced your breasts!
Dr. Agha uses your tummy tuck incision to place the implants either over the muscle (subglandular) or under the muscle (submuscular), depending on your needs and preferences.
You can get the trans-abdominal breast augmentation whether you’re getting silicone or saline implants. Dr. Agha will help determine which implant best suits you during your initial consultation.
Is It for You?
Get the tummy tuck and trans-abdominal breast augmentation combo if you’re already planning on getting a tummy tuck and want to add volume to your breasts.
However, this should only be done if only an implant is necessary to restore your breasts’ youthful appearance.
Tummy Tuck with Monsplasty
Just like other parts of your body, your mons pubis — that area of fatty tissue right below your lower abdomen and connected to your pubic bone — can gain weight, sag, and stretch over time.
A monsplasty, also known as a pubic lift, can remove sagging skin and tissue in your mons pubis area. It is often combined with Dr. Agha’s tummy tuck to eliminate the need for extra incisions.
As Dr. Agha believes that both the tummy and mons have to be corrected at the time of a tummy tuck, he uses the low-cut high-definition tummy tuck to perform both the monsplasty and tummy tuck at the same time. It results in the creation of a flat mons on the same plane as the abdomen.
During this procedure, Dr. Agha removes the mons skin and fat using your low-cut tummy tuck incision. He then lifts the mons pubis area as he closes the incision. If there’s excess mons fat, liposuction may be needed.
After the operation, you need to follow our tummy tuck recovery instructions. You’ll be able to resume normal activities within 2-3 weeks, though you can only engage in strenuous activities after six weeks.
A monsplasty requires a well-placed incision and an understanding of mons pubis beauty to effectively shape and contour the area into a more aesthetically pleasing shape.
Lifting the mons pubis results in a more desirable mons position and shape that’s both natural-looking and comfortable, giving you a more confident sense of self.
Is It for You?
A monsplasty is specially made for women who find their mons pubis starting to sag with excess skin, causing them discomfort and self-consciousness, and possibly affecting urination or intercourse.
If you have a large mons pubis but no excess skin, you may want to consider mons pubis liposuction or CoolSculpting instead.
It can also be combined with other popular genital plastic surgeries, like labiaplasty and mons reduction if you want to work on your entire genitalia.
Tummy Tuck with Anterior Thigh Lift or Thigh Front Lift
Another procedure that you can pair with a tummy tuck is the anterior thigh lift — an approach that solves excess tissue and skin problems at the front of your thighs. It’s an exclusive surgery pioneered by Dr. Agha himself.
In this type of thigh lift, Dr. Agha creates a super low tummy tuck incision over the upper thigh front. Through this incision, he first completes his high-definition tummy tuck procedure.
He then uses a specialized instrument to loosen up the thigh skin and fat in the area. The thigh front is then lifted up to its normal anatomical level and anchored at a higher position using multiple anchoring sutures.
Dr. Agha then closes the tummy tuck incision in three layers.
With this process, your thigh front can be lifted by 1-2 inches, making your thigh contour a lot smoother.
Is It for You?
You can get a tummy tuck with an anterior thigh lift if you want to have a more aesthetically pleasing flat belly that flows into your firm frontal thighs.
Aside from a tummy tuck, you can partner the thigh front lift with an outer thigh lift or circumferential thigh lift.
Tummy Tuck with Abdominal Hernia Repair
A hernia happens when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. It can be very painful and uncomfortable for people struggling with it.
Abdominal hernias are common among obese people and pregnant women, as well as those who strain during bowel movements. They come in different types, such as the following:
- Para-umbilical hernia – hernia around the navel
- Umbilical hernia – hernia under the navel
- Incisional hernia – hernia related to a previous abdominal surgery
- Ventral hernia – any abdominal hernia
Hernias are typically referred to general surgeons who repair them using an incision placed directly over the hernia.
But for mothers with an abdominal or umbilical hernia after pregnancy, instead of having an incision on the central abdomen, Dr. Agha uses the tummy tuck incision to expose the abdominal wall, abdominal hernia, and defect location.
He then repairs the hernia through this incision, thus completing the tummy tuck and hernia repair through one incision.
Is It for You?
Tummy tuck with abdominal hernia repair is recommended for people who have an abdominal hernia and wish to have a tummy tuck.
Combining these two procedures makes sense in terms of cost and insurance coverage (with hernia repair often covered by insurance) and cutting down one’s recovery time.
