Tummy Tuck in New Orleans

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

At the Modern Plastic Surgery & Medspa, New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters uses abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, to help both women and men tighten the skin of the abdominal area with dramatic outcomes for a leaner, slimmer look. For both men and women, loose, wrinkly skin and pockets of fat in the abdominal area can be frustrating because they seem to defy all efforts to get rid of them. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are typical reasons why a person may not be able to achieve a slim and tight stomach through diet and exercise alone. If you want to tighten sagging skin in your stomach area and reduce unwanted fat for a renewed, trim look, a tummy tuck may be right for you.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for A Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a great option for individuals who have lax skin on the abdomen due to any of the following:

  • Weight fluctuations
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Previous Pregnancies
  • Surgery

Tummy tuck surgery can typically address:

  • Loose abdominal skin
  • Excess weight in the midsection
  • Cellulite
  • Stretch marks

If you’re considering a tummy tuck to address excess abdominal skin after having children, you may want to combine it with breast enhancement surgery and liposuction as part of a mommy makeover.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. There are several surgical options that come into consideration for this surgery. To start, the incision shape and size are determined based on the quantity of excess skin. Some individuals with an abundance of hanging skin might benefit best from an extended tummy tuck, which makes the incision along the lower abdomen from hip to hip, just on top of the pubic bone. People who have minimal excess skin and wrinkling may be better candidates for a less invasive technique. Men and women who receive this treatment can still benefit from an abdominoplasty, but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of how it is performed, all abdominoplasty procedures at Dr. Jules Walters involve the removal of loose, hanging skin and liposuction for a tighter, leaner stomach.

How Long Is Recovery After a Tummy Tuck?

When your tummy tuck is completed, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression garment to decrease swelling. You may have discomfort and soreness and standing upright and walking may be difficult for a while, so you should take it easy for several days. Resuming normal movement will become less painful once the abdominal muscles adjust and the incision heals. You can generally resume a normal routine around two weeks after your surgery. In 4 – 6 weeks you can typically resume your workout routine if you are given permission by Dr. Walters.

Selected Reviews of Dr. Walters

On 08/11/2015, I got a tummy tuck and liposuction in 3 areas. I love my results and that it was affordable enough that I didn’t have to take out a loan or travel far to get an affordable tummy tuck. I love my hour glass figure. I love how confident my doctor was with his work! Thanks Dr. Jules Walters!


I am very satisfied with the results. Dr. Walter is very professional and well informed me of all information needed. I truly love my results and wouldn’t change it for anything. The before and after care from the office was wonderful. The procedure was exactly what I was told and the hospital was great also.


Had a lot of references for Dr. Walters in New Orleans LA he was professional n kind n did beautiful work on my body. He made sure I had very little pain as much as possible and also took my calls for outside of office for any other concerns. His staff was the best in comforting you and making my experience great.

Dr. Walters is a perfectionist! I have received so many compliments since my surgery. He did my tummy tuck, bbl, lipo, and my lips. My results are amazing. I would recommend anyone looking to get any work done in the New Orleans area to come see Dr. Jules Walters at Khoobehi & Associates. He is one who cares for his patients and watches you closely with follow-up after follow-up to make sure your healing well and the results are perfect.


I cannot say enough for the warmth and kindness that Dr. Walters and his staff have giving me. Dr. Walters and his staff have been so wonderful and accommodating. My schedule has been hectic and they were able to squeeze me in between other appointments. He didn’t try and force any one procedure on me and he listened to all of my suggestions regarding procedures. Dr. Walters thoroughly explained what to expect but gave me plenty of opportunities to voice my concerns, questions and desires. Dr. Walters has been patient, professional, available and very knowledgeable throughout the entire process – from the surgery and check-ups. He never treated me like I was less because he was the surgeon.


I am completely happy with Dr Walters and his staff. I had a Tummy tuck, Lipo and fat injected into the lateral buttocks. I’ve got plenty of compliments since my surgery and I can’t recommend Dr Walter enough.
