Plus-Sized Tummy Tuck in Atlanta, GA

Many women and men encounter denials for tummy tucks due to their weight. This perspective is considered outdated and biased regarding an individual's health. Our board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeons refrain from implementing arbitrary weight restrictions or BMI to determine eligibility for a plus-size tummy tuck. We're here to tell you that overweight, healthy individuals can be eligible for an abdominoplasty, and the results are often completely life-changing.

As a body-positive plastic surgery practice, we welcome all and are here to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Because at Panacea, we genuinely believe that "Every BODY deserves respect™."

What Are the Benefits of a Plus-Sized Tummy Tuck?

Some medical practices put a weight restriction on who can and cannot receive a tummy tuck. Not at Panacea Plastic Surgery. Here, we utilize advanced technology and techniques in order to ensure almost anyone in Atlanta, GA — regardless of their weight — can receive this helpful procedure. A plus-sized tummy tuck offers numerous benefits, such as:

  • Eliminates skin from the stomach
  • Strengthens muscles in the core
  • Improves spinal support, balance, and mobility
  • May relieve back discomfort
  • Can make it easier to exercise
  • Might treat hernia results and incontinence

Who Is a Candidate for Plus-Sized Tummy Tuck?

A candidate for a plus-sized tummy tuck is typically someone with a higher body mass index (BMI) who has excess abdominal skin and fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and are committed to maintaining a stable weight post-surgery. It is also beneficial if the individual has no significant medical conditions that could impair healing or increase surgical risks. Candidates should be non-smokers or willing to quit smoking to improve healing outcomes. This procedure is suitable for those looking to enhance their body contour and improve mobility and comfort.

A plus-size tummy tuck generally costs about $14,000, including all pre- and post-surgical care, hospital fees, and follow-up appointments. However, high BMI abdominoplasty and hourglass tummy tuck pricing greatly depend on patients' needs and goals. For instance, some patients may require an extended or circumferential (360) tummy tuck to achieve the best results.

Many patients who come to us for plus-size tummy tucks also opt to undergo high-BMI liposuction (also known as high-volume lipo or "aggressive," "mega," and "extreme" liposuction), which removes five or more liters of fat or combine their procedure with a monsplasty or removal of the fatty area around the upper pubis or fupa. Therefore, a consultation with our doctors is the only way to know what any procedure will ultimately cost. Many plastic surgery financing options are available for patients, including those from CareCredit, Alphaeon, and United Medical Credit.

After a plus-sized tummy tuck surgery, patients can expect a recovery process that involves initial rest and limited mobility, pain management with prescribed medications, and proper wound care to prevent infection. Surgical drains may be used to remove excess fluid and are typically removed within a week. Swelling and bruising are common in the first few weeks, with most patients able to return to normal activities within 2-4 weeks, avoiding strenuous activities for about 6-8 weeks. Wearing a compression garment helps with swelling and proper contouring. Full recovery and the final results can take several months, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential to preserve the results. Regular follow-up appointments are crucial to monitor healing and address any concerns.

Your initial plus-sized tummy tuck plastic surgery consultation can be scheduled as an in-person visit or via video conference. Whichever option you choose, our goal is to ensure that you feel at home at Panacea the first time you contact us and every moment that you are under the care of our doctors and staff. We have created an atmosphere that is simply unmatched, and you'll feel it the minute you walk through the door at our beautiful Inman Park office.

Dr. Singh and her team of professionals were amazing throughout the entire process. They communicate very well and so far I’m very happy with the results. Edit update: a post op photo update 11 weeks post op from plus-size tummy tuck and lipo ✨ feeling and looking amazing

We scheduled a consultation (during COVID-19) and the energy Dr. Kim Singh and her Assistant was able to provide through a video consultation was top tier; it made me feel very comfortable. It was professional, yet relaxed and inviting. I knew I was making the correct choice to have Dr. Kim & her practice perform my surgery. You can tell it was genuine as the energy was maintained throughout every office visit, surgery and follow up visit with  everyone from her PA (who has phenom style!!), to the office staff (Iman Park),  her business partner and hospital of choice (Emory). That was the other thing that made their office stand out from the rest,  her surgery assistant is her business partner - another plastic surgeon, so technically your surgery is being performed by TWO highly skilled plastic surgeons. It’s like Atlanta’s very own Nip Tuck without the drama.I would definitely recommend their practice and have to several who have asked. Thelma & Louise have never looked and felt better!! Thanks Dr. Kim!

I have been a nurse for many years and went to many consultations looking for the best surgeon for my TT. When I had my first consultation I knew Dr. Aboushi is who I wanted doing my procedure. His kind beside manner and wealth of knowledge calmed my nerves through the entire process. I would give him 10 stars if I could. I highly recommend Dr. Aboushi and Panacea Plastic Surgery.

Went in for a consultation in July and got a tummy tuck September, performed by Dr. Abboushi. I'll start by saying Dr. Abboushi is very conservative and practices with your overall health as his number one concern! As a 44 year old diabetic I truly appreciated his approach. At 3 months post op I am extremely pleased with my results thus far, and the ENTIRE staff (special shout out to Brooke and Amber) were absolutely perfect. I'd recommend Panacea to my own family and friends-

I went to Panacea in May for a tummy tuck and when I say Dr. A is the absolute best, it would be an understatement. My results are way more than I could expect. His bedside manner is phenomenal and no matter what the question or concern was Dr A. answered with such love and compassion. I'm so happy to have met the entire Panacea family from Kristin to Siri to Dr. A and Dr. Singh. I will be returning for part two of my journey and I can't wait to see my results.
