Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – Boston South Shore

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as the “tummy tuck,” is most helpful for:

  • people who have lost a lot of weight
  • women who have had several children
  • anyone who has loose fat and skin of the abdomen.

This is a surgical procedure to remove the excess fat and skin (that lower abdominal bulge, that we all hate) giving you a youthful, shapely abdomen.

“The recovery was much easier than I had anticipated. Your attention to keeping me pain free was great. I was able to recuperate comfortably. I want to thank you and your staff for a wonderful experience. I would recommend you to anyone!”

Drainless tummy tuck surgery

Dr. Hamori performs a “drainless” and near painless tummy tuck. This advanced surgery technique offers patients a tighter abdomen with less pain due to NO DRAINS and a long-lasting local anesthetic. In a drainless tummy tuck, Dr. Hamori uses small quilting sutures placed between the abdominal skin and the fascial layer. The sutures are placed with progressive tension allowing more skin to be removed without the need for drainage tubes.

Dr. Hamori describes the drainless tummy tuck for The Plastic Surgery Channel.

Non-narcotic pain control

When used in combination with the long-lasting (3 days) numbing solution Exparel, there is very little, if any, need for narcotic pain medication postoperatively. Drainless tummy tuck patients can return to work sooner and will experience a smoother and more shapely abdomen than those undergoing the more traditional abdominal surgery that uses drains.

    Abdominoplasty testimonials:

    “Thank you Dr. Hamori, You're really a special person. Once again I appreciate all of your great work and care of me. I will heal and save up time for my thighs! You are my angel—I trust you 150%. The journey continues.

    Warm regards, C.”

    “Our thanks to all of you for your professionalism, kindness, and GREAT care during my recent surgery. All of you were fantastic in making it a worthwhile experience.

    Thanks! Mr. and Mrs. S.”

    “Dr Hamori,

    Thank you!! I was sitting at my desk and looked down thinking that my tummy would be sticking out again and I would need to adjust my suit jacket to cover it up. I looked down to find a flat stomach under my tucked in top!!

    I had so much extra skin and a stomach that I could not lose no matter how much I exercised and dieted. I have so much more confidence due to my tummy tuck and the liposuction on my hips. I went down a size and fit into all of my clothes that were previously very snug on me. I have been trying on clothes that I would never have thought of trying on and end up walking out with a purchase of those clothes.

    Working out is so much easier now as I am not carrying all of the weight in my mid-section. I am running an hour a day with ease. My back pain is almost gone and I finally don't have to sleep with a pillow under my legs to alleviate the pain in my lower back.

    I can’t tell you how happy I am that I moved forward with this procedure. You and your staff were wonderful. I was there in the morning for the surgery and was in the Operating room within 30 minutes of getting there. I loved the one on one attention before the surgery and in the recovery room. The focus was on keeping me comfortable as the staff was not also caring for 5 other patients.

    The recovery was much easier than I had anticipated. Your attention to keeping me pain free was great. I was able to recuperate comfortably. I want to thank you and your staff for a wonderful experience. I would recommend you to anyone!

    Sincerely, SA”
