Weight loss and healthier eating seem to be on the minds of nearly everyone in 2014, and if you are determined to stick to your New Year’s resolution we encourage you to work hard everyday towards your goal. However, successful weight loss is more than a resolution, for some people it is a committed lifestyle. There are still very many who feel that no matter what they do their figure cannot fully achieve what they are aiming for. If you have put the hard work in and are still unsatisfied with your midsection, then a tummy tuck may be the procedure that fine-tunes your New Year’s resolution.
There are many factors leading up to a person’s dissatisfaction with their abdominal section. The effects of dramatic weight loss, pregnancy, genetics and even aging can leave the stomach looking worn out and separate the abdominal muscles. Exercise and diet are a great to slim down, but the muscles need to be repaired to get rid of the distorted appearance. Most patients considering tummy tuck at this time of year want to get the best results that complement their weight loss achievements, a tummy tuck can restore the body by:
- Redefining body contour
- Eliminating excess and sagging skin
- Reducing fatty areas that exercise cannot remove
- Repairing and tightening abdominal muscles
A weight loss resolution is not an easy feat to accomplish for most people, but those who are successful have turned to tummy tuck and achieved a high rate of sustained weight loss. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, overweight or obese patients who underwent tummy tuck reported long-term weight loss was sustained in 70 percent of the patients studied. Most patients declared that the reason for their successful long-term weight loss was due to the increase of satiety after surgery.
This study reveals that people who were once overweight have the ability to reshape their body without having to worry about putting the weight back. As long as they continue to follow a healthy lifestyle of eating right and exercising, long-term weight loss is sustained well after tummy tuck.
To get a better understanding of how to accomplish the best look for your body, schedule a consultation with Dr. Grigoryants in Los Angeles. Enhancing your New Year’s resolution results with a tummy tuck is the perfect solution to give you the tighter and slimmer abdominal section you deserve.

With all the talk about weight these days it’s no wonder that both men and women are looking down and trying to figure out how to fight the battle of the bulge. You would be hard pressed to find someone that is NOT concerned about their bodies in today’s society. They continuously promise themselves that they are going to lose the excessive body fat by eating right and getting in shape. Spending time at the gym every month and eating smaller meals throughout the day are all great for everyone’s health overall, and you will definitely see results when you look in the mirror, but you might also still see the stubborn stomach fat that just won’t budge or the excess skin where the fat used to be. The pace at which a man or woman loses weight often makes a snail look fast. Fortunately, people struggling with excess abdominal body fat and loose skin can turn to tummy tuck as the solution to get the beautiful body they have been working so hard for.
Tummy tuck, medically termed abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fat from a man or woman’s midsection. A protruding abdomen stretches the abdominal wall and over time the skin sags and abdominal definition is hidden. Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants evaluates his patients during consultation and offers his years of training and experience to help you get the results you want.
During the procedure, a well hidden incision will be made to access the underlying abdominal structures. Dr. Grigoryants elevates and pulls the skin down to create a tight, flat contour. Excess skin is removed and the abdominal muscles and fascia are tightened.
Why Is It Smarter to Get a Tummy Tuck?
Men and women everywhere resort to extreme diet plans and exercise videos to help trim their bodies, but often times the results they seek simply can’t be accomplished by diet and exercise due to their genetic limitations. Unfortunately many people end up becoming frustrated after months and years of working out and dieting that don’t yield the results they want. This often leads to people “giving up” and “letting go of themselves” simply out of frustration.
Instead of eliminating food or eating unordinary meals that do not provide enough nourishment, people can opt for abdominoplasty for a slimmer and toned abdomen. Several studies have shown that a tummy tuck can really increase the quality of life of the patient. An improvement in mood and self confidence following the procedure leads to a boost in desire to maintain the new body they see in the mirror everyday, leading to a happier, healthier life.
Why Do People Turn to Tummy Tucks?
There are multiple reasons for men and women to go under the knife and achieve what they have been working for. Common reasons for people to get a tummy tuck include:
- Loose skin does not have the ability to shrink with diet and exercise
- Postpartum women want to get their slim shape back
- People feel self-conscious about their excessive flab in the abdomen
- Improve quality of life
- Boost self-confidence and image with a flatter stomach
Will Pregnancy Be Possible After Procedure?
Women are still capable of having children after the procedure. However, the results of the procedure will be affected and the mother’s abdominal section will once again suffer from excessive weight added during pregnancy. Dr. Grigoryants recommends that patients hold off on surgery until the they are certain that they will no longer have anymore children, otherwise the results will be compromised.
Are Results Long Lasting?
After surgery, the patient will initially feel sore, swollen and experience some bruising. These effects will subside and patients will notice that their abdomen is firmer and flatter as they expected. They will feel more comfortable in clothing and the results can be long lasting by implementing a healthy lifestyle. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, unless the patient gains or loses a significant amount of weight or becomes pregnant, the abdomen should remain firmer and flatter for many years. Should the patient see more effects due to aging and gravity, their body contour can be restored again.
Dr. Grigoryants wants his patients to make the smart choice and visit his office in Los Angeles to get the answers they seek in regards to body contouring. Men and women no longer have to struggle to in the battle of the bulge. Trim the fat with a tummy tuck and get that sexy shape you deserve!

This post will describes what steps we take to ensure safety for our patients. When these guidelines are followed, plastic surgery can be performed with a very high degree of safety.
1. Patient selection: Prior to surgery, patients are screened for any medical conditions and their ability to withstand surgery and anesthesia. For young and healthy patients, surgery is very safe. Older patients and patients with medical problems will need to undergo medical clearance by their primary care doctors or cardiologists. In certain cases, even stress tests will be ordered to evaluate the patients cardiac function. From time to time, we will turn down patients based on their age and/or medical condition.
2. Type of surgery performed: Certain procedures like (rhinoplasty, facelift, breast augmentation etc.) are associated with relatively little bleeding and little stress on the body. On the other hand large volume liposuction (over 5 liters) or tummy tuck with a large volume liposuction is more stressful for the body. When patients undergo combined surgeries or large volume liposuction, we recommend the patients stay in the hospital for at least 1 day for observation and intravenous hydration. During surgery surgery the patients vitals signs and fluid maintenance is very important. Dr. Grigoryants’ training and experience in Critical Care Medicine in addition to plastic surgery, allows him to take extra steps in ensuring intraoperative safety for his patients.
3. Duration of surgery: Most procedures in plastic surgery when performed by an experienced surgeon are relatively short. For example, Dr. Grigoryants’ rhinoplasty takes about 2-2.5 hours, breast augmentation 1.5 hours, and tummy tuck with liposuction 3-3.5 hours. Certain procedures can be combined safely. Although the relationship between the risk of complications and duration of surgery is not very clear, Dr. Grigoryants limits the duration of surgery to less than 6-7 hours when procedures are combined. When more extensive procedures are required, it is best to do them separately at different times.
4. Surgical Enviroment: Surgical procedures with anesthesia have to be performed in the hospital or an accredited surgical center. These facilities will have the necessary equipment and medications to allow for safer surgery. For example, patients vital signs are carefully monitored before, during, and after surgery; warming blanket are used to keep patients warm; and sequential compression devices (SCD’s) are placed on all patients to minimize the risk of deep vein thrombosis.

When many people
think about cosmetic surgery, they only think about the physical improvements
that it has on someone. However, there is actually a great improvement to the
person’s self-esteem and overall quality of life. A recent study published by Market Watch has
confirmed through a scientific study that a tummy tuck or, abdominoplasty,
truly does better someone’s quality of life. During this scientific survey,
over 360 tummy tuck patients were interviews. So, if you have been skeptical of
a tummy tuck actually making you feel better as a person, you can now have
proof that it does have an impact. However, in order to be completely happy and
have this outcome from your surgery you need to have your tummy tuck in Beverly Hills
performed by an expert plastic surgeon.
With all of the
resources that the internet has to offer, finding a great plastic surgeon is
easier than ever. One of the best places to start when trying to decide on a
plastic surgeon is to view the immense number of before and after photos that
they have. By viewing the photos, you can get an idea of the results that

artistic skill that they either have or do not have. Whether you are having a

So, for all
people that had done their research and picked an experienced board-certified
plastic surgeon they can have better assurance that they can say their
self-esteem was improved by the procedure. Of the 360 that were interviewed for
the study, 86% claimed that they had felt a boost in their self-esteem. Also,
70% of all interviewed patients said that they had an overall better quality of
life. In the study there was no explanation to why the other 30% did not report
a better quality of life. If I were to guess it could either be because they
did not set realistic expectations for the procedure or, they did not do the
research required to choose the best available plastic surgeon.
The study also
reviewed that 98% of patients would undergo the procedure again while 99% of
people said that they would recommend the procedure to a friend or family
member that was inquiring about the procedure. Tummy tuck surgery is life
changing because of the dramatic results that it is able to achieve. Finally,

Too much flab or excess skin in your abdomen may be worrisome and for some patients will not diminish with diet or exercise. This may make you consider a tummy tuck that removes extra fat and skin to flatten your abdomen and tightens your abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck should be performed only when you have reached your goal weight and is not be used as an alternative to weight loss. It may be suitable for both men and women who are in good overall health. However, you should not confuse a tummy tuck with liposuction as the surgeon may elect to perform liposuction as part of a tummy tuck to achieve maximum body contouring results.
The procedure may be useful for women who have muscles and skin stretched by multiple pregnancies. A tummy tuck Los Angeles is also an alternative for men or women who have lost a massive amount of weight and still have excessive fat deposits or loose skin in the abdominal area. Patients should be at their goal weight already as major fluctuations in weight may compromise the results achieved from a tummy tuck.
The surgery can take anywhere from 1 – 5 hours and is performed as an in-patient or outpatient procedure. You may be administered general anesthesia for the procedure and need to prepare accordingly as instructed by your doctor. All patients must arrange to have someone drive them home after the surgery as they will not be able to drive themselves. If you live alone, you will need someone to stay with for at least the first night after the surgery to care for you and ensure that you get your medications and adequate food and water. Tummy tuck Beverly Hills
may be performed using:
· Complete abdominoplasty: Your abdomen is cut from hipbone to hipbone and the incision is made low, at about the same level as your pubic hair. The surgeon may then manipulate and contour the skin, tissue and muscle as required. Drainage tubes may be placed under skin that may be removed in a few days.
· Partial or mini abdominoplasty: Mini abdominoplasty is suitable for patients having fat deposits located below the navel and requiring shorter incisions. During the procedure, the skin between the line of incision and belly button may be separated. The complete procedure may be performed in 2 hours.
You may experience pain and swelling in the days following surgery as you recover. The surgeon may prescribe a painkiller and instruct you on how to adequately handle the pain. Soreness may last for several weeks. There may also be numbness, bruising and tiredness. It is important that you coordinate with your doctor to come up with an individual plan for recovery as everyone is different.
