Benefits of Tummy Tuck

  • A more aesthetically appealing appearance. By removing excess skin, our doctors can give patients a more flattering body contour.
  • A stronger midsection. A tummy tuck can tighten the abdominal muscles, repairing areas weakened by pregnancy or major weight loss.
  • Greater comfort and confidence. People who have avoided revealing clothing, bathing suits, exercise, or sports can have more freedom in what they wear and the activities they enjoy.

Pregnancy and significant weight loss can create excess skin around the belly and cause the abdominal muscles to separate. Diet and exercise alone may not be enough to firm up these features. Through tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales give patients a flatter, tighter body contour.

Tummy Tuck Recovery in San Francisco

Because of the experience and expertise of our doctors, tummy tuck surgery usually does not take very long, and patients can expect to return home on the same day as their procedure. We see many out-of-town patients, and we encourage them to spend at least one night resting in San Francisco. We are happy to provide hotel recommendations.

The drainless tummy tuck techniques our doctors use help patients return to their jobs within two weeks, sometimes sooner.

  • People with more physically demanding jobs or lifestyles will require more time away.
  • We will see patients again about a week after their procedure, at which time we will remove sutures and provide instructions on scar care.
  • By following this advice, patients can significantly reduce long-term signs of surgery.

Cost & Monthly Financing Options

The price for a tummy tuck can range from $10,000 to $15,000 depending on the complexity and time involved. Other factors can affect the cost; for example, some patients will benefit from liposuction at the same time as their tummy tuck, or they may have less skin that requires excision. In case you’re not ready to pay in full, our affordable monthly financing options can help you split the cost into monthly payments. Call & ask us about how easy it is to apply for monthly financing through Care Credit or Prosper Healthcare Lending.

Our doctors help you decide about treatment by preparing a detailed surgical plan during their initial consultation. They will take the time to talk about what patients can expect before, during, and after their procedure; explain pricing, and answer any other questions. Beyond giving patients an attractively tightened midsection, it is our goal to provide supportive & informative care throughout their experience.

Real patients. Real results.

Real Patient Reviews

I have known Dr. Furnas for many years and just had my second surgery with her. The first was an upper eyelid surgery when I was 51 and now, at age 68, I had a facelift, CO2 laser, and fat injections. I was out and about one-week post-surgery and back at the gym after 2 weeks. The results are amazing (and subtle) and my friends are impressed….those that know that is. For such a lot of surgery, it was a non-event. At week 3, other than a bit of residual redness from the laser, I am fully back in my life. Thank you Heather, you continue to amaze.
