Men and women undergo a tummy tuck procedure for many reasons. Maybe diet and exercise aren’t precise enough to target your specific belly bulge. Perhaps pregnancy has affected your abdominal muscles. Or weight loss has left your skin lax and no amount of crunches can tighten it. Whatever the reason, Rodeo Surgical Art is excited to help you regain your flat stomach for a profile you can’t wait to show off.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that repairs stretched, weakened, or separated abdominal wall muscles and removes excess fat and loose skin for a firmer, smoother abdominal profile. Dr. David Mashhadian can help you customize the procedure for your specific body structure and concerns, from a full abdominoplasty, a mini tummy tuck, a dermolipectomy, or post bariatric body contouring.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you’re tired of hiding a belly paunch behind loose clothing or a hunched posture, or you simply dislike your reflection and wish to be slimmer with a flatter stomach, you may be an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck. Get started with a consultation at Rodeo Surgical Art.

What is the Procedure Like?
The day of your tummy tuck, you’ll be given the anesthesia recommended by Dr. Mashhadian, either IV sedation or general anesthesia. The incision is made between your navel and pubic hairline, and its length is determined by the extent of correction you require. A second incision may be necessary at your bellybutton to access loose skin of the upper abdomen. Your abdominal muscles are restructured and sutured into place, and excess fat and skin is removed. Once Dr. Mashhadian is pleased with your new contour, your incisions are closed and you’re ready for recovery.
Recovery and Results
While you’ll experience some bruising and swelling, Dr. Mashhadian’s Recovery EXL™ techniques will minimize the trauma to your tissues, which are reflected in a quicker, safer recovery where you may not even require prescription pain medication. You’ll immediately have a flatter, slimmer tummy with better contours to your torso. Most patients return to work within 1-2 weeks, and are often moving around comfortably just hours after the procedure. With a healthy diet and active lifestyle, your tummy tuck results can last a lifetime.
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
One of the biggest considerations for electing to have a tummy tuck is cost. The American Society of Plastic Surgery lists the average price of abdominoplasty at $6,253, though that number will fluctuate based on geographic location, extent of procedure performed, and the skill of the surgeon. Procedures are performed in an accredited surgery center. Dr. Mashhadian has also carefully positioned Rodeo Surgical Art so as to offer extremely competitive pricing to patients, so you don’t have to choose between your self-esteem and your bank account. Financing options are also available for your convenience.
