Tummy Tuck

Curvier & more daring with a life-changing abdominoplasty

Bring back sexy.


Remove excess skin.

If you had a magic wand, who wouldn't want to go back in time and undo some of life's changes. Whether you got it from having those darn cute kids, or because weight loss or weight gain, a tummy tuck will remove that extra loose skin.


Tighten abdominal muscles.

You may have tried working out but can't seem to tighten the muscles in your abdominal area. That may because the muscles have come apart and need to be brought back together. While you are able to strengthen them by exercise, only surgery can undo the separation in the abdominal wall. 


Curvier, hourglass shape.

A tummy tuck surgery improves the contour of abdomen through a combination of skin tightening and muscle repair to achieve more enhanced shapes & curves.

Types of Tummy Tucks

The technique that's best for you depends on the degree of correction necessary.

Full Tummy Tuck

A full tummy tuck is needed when there is excess skin or fat throughout the abdomen or when muscle tightening is required. This is most commonly the case in women who have had children.

Mini Tummy Tuck

When there is only moderate skin overhang without excess fat above the belly button, a mini-tuck (mini-abdominoplasty, partial tuck, partial abdominoplasty) can be performed.

Liposuction Only

Liposuction can be considered instead of a tummy tuck when there is minor skin excess.

Temecula, CA

I was highly satisfied with my experience because of Dr. Kim attention to detail. She’s a perfectionist and I trusted her. I’m more confident and do not mind looking at myself in the mirror!!! I am still a bit swollen 6 weeks out after a tummy tuck and lipo to the flanks and my chin. However, I’m looking forward to my final result.

I’m very happy I made this decision!!! I feel much better about how my body looks. I don’t have to look at that excess fat anymore. It’s haunted me for years. Thank you Dr. Kim and everyone at AI! Her Staff was AMAZING and I received nothing but the best care I could ever imagine. Everything from the beginning to the end was a great experience. I would definitely recommend AI Surgery Center to anyone.

I will definitely be going back and telling all my friends and family how professional and personal they ALL were.

I cannot say enough about how freaking AMAZING is Doctor Andy Wongworawat (Dr. W)!

The man is a perfectionist, his mannerism and politeness is just refreshing.  I had a tummy tuck and lipo done with him and my husband and I could not be happier with the result!

It was an amazing experience from the beginning up until now.  This is my second tummy tuck, my first experience was a nightmare, I hated it.  Doctor W fixed everything and now I'm over moon, my confidence is back. 

The recovery process was great, he explained everything so It was easily understood and I was never worried one bit.  I cannot thank him enough and anything else I need done he's my guy. 

I whole heartedly recommend his services to anyone who's looking to feel better about themselves.  It was just an awesome experience! 

Thank you Dr. W.

Dr. Filip is extremely thorough with his assessment of your needs.

He takes time to listen to his patients and explains how he will achieve the desired outcome. His calm demeanor, skill and experience help put you at ease.

I am really happy with the outcome of my surgery and would highly recommend Dr. Filip and his staff. He is a true artist.

I met with other surgeons before deciding on Dr. Filip and know l made the correct decision.
