  • Remove excess belly skin and fat
  • Tighten lax abdominal muscles
  • Sculpt a firm and toned midsection

The possibilities are endless. Our tummy tuck results are second to none. Please take a moment to view our beautiful before and after gallery to discover what’s possible with this procedure.



Sculpt the entire abdomen

The traditional tummy tuck is the most common form of this procedure. It requires an incision that extends from hip-to-hip, along with a cut around the navel. This comprehensive approach allows our surgeon to remove skin and fat throughout the entire abdomen and reposition your belly button.


Remove lower belly flab

Mini tummy tucks are ideal for patients who need to address excess fat and skin below the navel only. It’s a partial abdominoplasty that creates a limited transformation, but is associated with just one small incision beneath the belly button and a much quicker recovery period when compared to the alternatives.


Slim the stomach + love handles

This option is the best tummy tuck Chicago North Shore clients who need to remove excess abdominal flab and love handles can get! The incision extends behind the hips, and through that extensive opening our skilled surgeon is able to lift and contour the entire lower body.



At PryorHealth in North Shore tummy tuck surgery will be done under general anesthesia and can take up to several hours, depending on the extent of the procedure. While a mini tummy tuck can take just 90 minutes, an extended abdominoplasty can take up to five hours to complete.

To begin, the surgeon will create the incisions. Although some of the cuts can be quite extensive, our skilled surgeon will carefully place them to ensure that they are easily hidden with clothing and swimwear once you have healed.

Through those openings, the surgeon will tighten lax muscles, remove excess skin and smooth stretch marks. He may also perform liposuction to remove unwanted deposits of fat. Once your stomach has been successfully shaped and contoured, the surgeon will close the incision with sutures and place a surgical drain to prevent fluids from accumulating in the area. You will then be taken to the recovery room where we will monitor your progress as you awaken from the anesthesia.

How to handle the recovery

For the majority of our Chicago North Shore tummy tuck patients, the recovery period is about two weeks. During this time, you should stay home from work and rest as much as possible. A friend or family member will need to drive you home from surgery and stay with you for a few days – especially if you have young children.

Here’s a quick look at what to expect as you heal:

  • Pain and discomfort are normal and can be managed with prescription medication.
  • Lightly walk around the house as soon as possible to promote healing.
  • Avoid strenuous activity until you’re cleared by our medical staff.
  • Empty your drainage tubes two or three times a day.
  • Sleep with your head elevated for two weeks.

You will need to return to the office a few days after your procedure so that we can monitor your progress and provide further instructions on when you can return to your normal routine and have your drains removed.
