Tummy Tuck

Individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. These changes result from aging, pregnancy, changes in weight or prior surgery.

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles. This recreates an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)


As a nurse, I work with physicians and have friends who work for plastic surgeons, so I probably have greater insight as to which plastic surgeons have the qualities that the public seeks when looking for the right surgeon- experience/ skill, credentials/certifications, understanding MY needs, compassion, availability, and the cost factor. Hands down, Dr. Canoun got my vote on all accounts.

I was pleased with the results of some liposuction and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), and went back for my Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). I cannot tell you how many compliments I have gotten on my new figure, and the two friends I have that work for other plastic surgeons commented “this has to be the best incision (scar) I have ever seen.” Thanks to Dr. Canoun’s technique, my incision line is barely noticeable, and my belly button has a natural look without any scar, unlike others where you can see a scar which is the telltale sign of plastic surgery. I chuckle as I recall how both friends looked over their shoulder to make sure the surgeon they worked for wasn’t walking in to possibly overhear them say another surgeon’s work was the best they had seen.

One thing I appreciate is Canoun’s candor- unlike other surgeons I consulted with, when I sought his opinion he didn’t try to sell me a service if he didn’t feel it would enhance my appearance. He always got back to me if I had any questions, and really took the time to explain things to my satisfaction. Also, if your opinion is all other things being equal to Dr. Canoun (skill, credentials, experience, etc.), you’ll find his fees are more reasonable than others, so why wouldn’t you consider him above all others?

The more I see and the more I hear in my line of work, coupled with my experience and satisfaction, I can say with utmost confidence you won’t be disappointed if you take your surgical wants and needs to Dr. Canoun. I’m so confident in Dr. Canoun’s skills and service, that if anyone reading this has any additional questions, please message me through Yelp and I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

D.S.L. Review from Yelp

Since my surgery (tummy tuck , breast lift / and reduction) with Dr. Cary Canoun,  the results are continually improving daily.  I cannot say enough about Dr. Canoun and his skilled hands.  I am more confident and look better than ever.  I am so pleased with my results and Dr. Canoun assures me they will only get better and better.

I am only 6 weeks out and my tummy tuck scar is so thin,  in six months it will barely be visible.  That is all due to his technique , and knowledge of the human body.  I cannot thank Dr. Canoun and his wonderful staff, I’d highly suggest anyone considering any procedures should certainly see Dr. Canoun
