Many patients approach Deigni Plastic Surgery because they struggle with unwanted and persistent weight gain in the midsection. Because this weight gain cannot be solved with diet and exercise alone, we understand your frustration. You are not alone if you are disappointed with weight gain or loose skin and tissue in your midsection.
These issues can be corrected with a tummy tuck in Sugar Land from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Olivier Deigni. We offer several kinds of body contouring procedures and could help you choose the one that will deliver the results you want.

Stubborn abdominal weight gain can be a medical issue if left unaddressed. Excess abdominal weight gain can be dangerous and lead to several chronic health conditions and issues, including heart disease, diabetes, liver issues, certain cancers.
Medically known as an abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck in Sugar Land is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the cosmetic appearance of the abdomen.

The tummy tuck takes approximately three hours, and it is performed at our private surgical facility by Dr. Deigni.
The tummy tuck is performed with a careful incision from one hip to the other. In all cases, an additional incision is performed around the belly button. Through these incisions, excess skin and fat are removed. The abdominal muscles are brought together, then the remaining skin is tightened and stitched together.
Deigni Plastic Surgery offers a drainless tummy tuck, which is a surgical technique that eliminates the need for drains post-procedure. This dramatically enhances your comfort and quality of life after the surgery.
A partial or mini tummy tuck is another option for patients who simply wish to target the lower portion of their midsection. The mini tummy tuck requires fewer incisions, and the incisions are generally shorter and less invasive. It also takes less time to perform and requires a shorter recovery time. This treatment is often combined with liposuction depending on the patient’s needs.
The results from the mini tummy tuck will not be as dramatic, full, or complete as the results from the full tummy tuck procedure, but it could be the best choice for Sugar Land patients who want to change a smaller, more specific section of their abdomen.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Deigni will provide a full medical consultation, which will include exactly what to expect during recovery. Patients also receive a personalized list of guidelines to help them optimally recover from your tummy tuck procedure; these guidelines will depend on individual factors such as age and general health condition.
Here are a few general tips that we offer to our patients. Recovery guidelines may include the following:
Patients who undergo a tummy tuck in Sugar Land will also benefit from preparing their homes for maximum comfort during recovery.
