In many cases, even a rigorous diet and exercise plan is simply not enough to eliminate excess fat, loose skin and a protruding abdomen. When this occurs, Dr. Farzaneh will commonly perform one of our tummy tuck procedures to expertly remove any unwanted volume and sculpt a stomach that is firm, flat and beautiful.
What is a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery designed to eliminate excess skin, remove unwanted fat, reposition the muscles and tighten the underlying support structures to create a flatter abdomen. Tummy tucks are commonly performed when diet and exercise alone can’t address the cosmetic issues on the stomach, as is often the case following pregnancy or substantial weight loss.
It is important to note that a tummy tuck is not a weight loss surgery – it is a body contouring procedure. It is used to sculpt and define the abdomen on a patient who is already close to their ideal weight, not to assist in dramatic weight loss. As such, a deep commitment to an ongoing healthy lifestyle before and after the procedure is required to ensure an optimal, long-lasting outcome.
Dr. Farzaneh has many Inland Empire tummy tuck patients who are post-childbirth women who wish to reduce excess fat, stretch marks and sagging skin, as well as tighten weakened stomach muscles. He also performs this on men who want to eliminate a protruding abdomen, tummy tuck surgery may be a viable, practical option.
Although the incision required for tummy tuck surgery is longer than other cosmetic surgery procedures, the resultant scar typically starts very, very low across the lower abdomen just above or into the pubic hair area. It usually can be easily hidden by a modest bikini or undergarment.
The tummy tuck procedure can also eliminate the previous scars from a hysterectomy, laparoscopy or even appendix removal surgery.
Working closely with OB/GYN surgeons, procedures such as hysterectomy, tubal ligation etc. may be combined with an abdominoplasty to reduce the recovery time and the needed time off work.
Dr. Farzaneh wants to make sure you understand what to expect from your surgery and when it is best used. He is arguably one of the best providers of tummy tuck in the Inland Empire, because of his attention to detail and making sure his patients are tracking with the whole procedure.

What is a mini tummy tuck?
Dr. Farzaneh is proud to offer his patients the very popular mini tummy tuck – a less invasive cosmetic procedure that is ideal for men and women who only need to eliminate extra volume and loose skin on the lower abdomen.
Exclusively performed to address the stubborn “pooch” below the navel, the mini tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the underlying muscles in this region only. Because the incisions are shorter and the procedure does not require repositioning the belly button, the mini tummy tuck is a quick surgery associated with a very minimal scar and a swift recovery period.
"Just let me say 5 stars might not be enough... Dr. Farzaneh goes beyond the call of duty to care for his patients. He put me at ease at my initial consultation with his straightforward style, recommending the best procedure for me. He performed a full tummy tuck on me and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results! He came to my home to check on me after surgery... He cares about his patients healing properly! If you are considering any type of plastic surgery I highly recommend Dr. Farzaneh!"
Following a tummy tuck with Dr. Farzaneh, you can expect to see a flat and toned stomach when you look in the mirror. The protruding appearance, loose skin and stubborn pockets of fat will have been eliminated, and you’ll be left with a beautiful new figure and restored self-confidence.

Are you a candidate for a tummy tuck?
As with all of his cosmetic procedures, Dr. Farzaneh determines tummy tuck candidacy on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of the patient’s cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. With that said, ideal candidates for this surgery are generally:
- In good overall health.
- Without any medical conditions that may impair healing or increase surgery risk.
- Realistic in their expectations of surgery.
- Committed to maintaining the results of their procedure with a proper diet and regular exercise.
In addition, candidates for a tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck should carry excess weight in the midsection and possess loose skin around the abdomen that they’d like to remove. Candidates should not plan to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight after the procedure.
If you are interested, please note that the only way to know for sure if you are a candidate for the procedure is to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Farzaneh today.
