Why won’t diet and exercise improve the look of my abdomen?

Although a healthy diet and regular exercise routine can go a long way toward improving the look of your body, these healthy habits can’t always give you the firm, toned look you want — especially when excess skin is involved. For many people, pregnancy or a rapid, substantial weight loss (such as that which occurs after bariatric surgery) can leave behind a layer of sagging skin that’s impossible to reduce without surgery. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Olson removes this skin and often tightens loose or weakened abdominal muscles for a deep, balanced improvement.

Can I combine a tummy tuck with another procedure?

Yes! In recent years, a combination operation called a mommy makeover has steadily increased in popularity. This procedure typically combines a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and liposuction into a single surgery for a significant improvement of the areas most affected by pregnancy and childbirth. A mommy makeover is completely customizable and may also include facial procedures or another type of body contouring for personalized results. Dr. Olson has performed many mommy makeovers and is excited about the possibilities this procedure can offer his patients.

Complete the Look

Enhancing a single aspect of your appearance can inspire you to address other areas you wish to improve. Ask Dr. Olson about combining your treatment for a more complete and stunning transformation.

Can tummy tuck surgery help me lose weight?

Tummy tuck surgery is not a weight loss procedure, and it’s not appropriate for people who are significantly overweight. For patients who are overweight, Dr. Olson typically recommends attempting diet and exercise adjustments before plastic surgery. However, the results of tummy tuck surgery can often help people keep their weights low by motivating them to maintain healthy lifestyles, a great ancillary benefit. If you’re unsure of your candidacy, Dr. Olson can help you determine whether the surgery is a good match for you during an in-person consultation.

How do I know which type of tummy tuck is right for me?

Dr. Olson offers 3 distinct versions of tummy tuck surgery to meet the diverse needs of his patients. A full tummy tuck is the standard procedure that improves the look of the entire abdomen, from the sternum to the pubic area. It typically requires a horizontal incision that extends from hip to hip and an incision around the navel. Dr. Olson performs the mini tummy tuck in Gilbert, AZ, using a smaller incision. This version focuses on the area below the navel for a more targeted improvement. Finally, an extended tummy tuck, also known as a body lift, is a more invasive procedure that lifts and tones the entire midsection, including the back, buttocks, and thighs. During your consultation, Dr. Olson performs a thorough physical evaluation and makes a recommendation based on your specific concerns.

How much does a tummy tuck cost in the Scottsdale area?

The cost of a tummy tuck with Dr. Olson can range from $4,500 to $10,000. The actual price of the procedure increases if Dr. Olson combines liposuction for numerous areas of the body during the surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Olson offers you a precise estimate based on his assessment after your consultation. You can read more about our surgical fees and your financing options on our Patient Resources page.

I have an abdominal tattoo. Will a tummy tuck ruin it?

Because tummy tuck surgery typically involves removing excess skin to create a tighter contour, it is possible that some tattoos can be altered or removed completely by the surgery. Similarly, tummy tuck surgery can also remove abdominal stretch marks and C-section scars. If you’d rather not alter the look of your tattoo, talk to Dr. Olson during your consultation. He may be able to adjust his surgical technique to suit your needs.

How long will my tummy tuck results last?

One of the most appealing things about tummy tuck surgery is that its results are likely to last as long as you want them to. In order to preserve their results, Dr. Olson advises his tummy tuck patients to avoid significant weight fluctuations after surgery, including additional pregnancies. By sticking to a healthy lifestyle and maintaining your weight, excess skin and fat won’t reappear, and your abdominal muscles will stay strong and toned. Although tummy tuck surgery doesn’t stop the aging process, it can significantly improve the condition of your abdomen when diet and exercise fall short.

I had liposuction done on my abdomen about 3.5 weeks ago and so far I am very happy with the results. If you had asked me 6 months ago if I would even entertain the idea of any form of plastic surgery my answer would have been a definitive "no way!" However, my fiance had a mommy makeover and watching how well it went from the very first interview with the staff to months after her surgery my opinion began to change. Dr Olson is an amazing surgeon that has assembled an absolutely wonderful supporting staff! My fiance was a nervous wreck and called Patty and Brittany multiple times with many questions and they very accommodating and sensitive to her situation. I felt she was in goods hands and figured why not get rid if this spare tire I've been hanging on to since my late 20's! Couldn't be happier I made the choice on the procedure and couldn't imagine allowing any other surgeon performing it.

Dr. Olson is amazing! Words really can't describe the feeling and confidence that I know have because of him! I lost 130lbs so you can imagine my loose skin :/ I felt ugly all the time. Dr. Olson talked about my goals and that I don't want a super model body, I want a flat tummy and curves. He gave me so much more than that! Not only do I have a beautiful flat tummy with a VERY low incision but i have the confidence I've always longed for. Thank you so very much Dr. Olson for giving me a new start!

I moved to Arizona from California and for years had done research and gone to consultations but never committed till I met Dr Olson. Being a very meticulous person his website and staff made it easy when I chose him for my cosmetic surgery. They are all very knowledgeable and genuine and that is what customer experience is about. The entire process from start to finish was easy and between Patty, Brittney, Dr Olson and the rest of the staff I'd do it again in a heart beat. Without having completed my surgery I had already referred a friend and have continued to do so. I am more than please with my results and have full confidence that I will be back if any other procedure/service catches my eye. Thank you for my amazing experience!

From my very first visit, I knew Dr. Josh Olson was the surgeon for me!! I was so confident that I had made my breast augmentation appointment before leaving his office that day! I'm now 3 weeks post-op and I could not be happier with my results. I'm 5'10" and 130 lbs. He helped me decide that 475cc, high profile, round silicone was what would get me the look I was going for. He is an amazing doctor who is a perfectionist. Not to mention, all the ladies in his office are the sweetest and make you feel comfortable! Dr. Olson also took the time to call me the evening of the surgery to check in on me, which of course reassured me that I chose the best surgeon out there! I would definitely recommend going to see him for your next appointment to achieve your visions. Thank you Dr. Olson and the entire staff at Advanced Plastic Surgery Institute for being so outstanding!

I never would have thought I would find myself so pleased. During my consultation visit I was first impressed by the non high pressure to commit to $$ and procedure decisions, how comfortable I felt with the friendly staff and pleasant Dr Olson. He took the time to explain and discuss the options for my areas I wished to improve without judgment or dismissing my concerns or questions. If I described this practice in one word it would be "Dedicated". When someone is dedicated they do their best, their attitude is pleasant, they are knowledgeable and they treat you with respect and appreciation. I found this still true and I'm at 16 days post surgery, having had multiple interactions and contacts, follow ups and check ins....Advance Plastic Surgery Institute will continue to be my go to expert when I want/need a Certified Plastic Surgeon and his team. Thank you from one of your newest loyal patients.

After researching for months and several consults, I decided to go with Dr. Olson for my lower body lift and brachioplasty. The office staff is helpful, friendly and caring and Dr. Olson is genuine, to the point and realistic. At no point did he try to sell me procedures I didn't need (as others did). He actually talked me out of a few things I mentioned possibly needing, which helped me have more confidence in him as a surgeon. My surgery was incredibly successful and I am ecstatic with the results thus far. His technique is much nicer than other surgeons I've researched and where he chose to make his incisions made all the difference. I've never seen cleaner lines. Another thing that was incredibly important to me was my belly button. I obsessed over having a fake looking belly button, but Dr. Olson's look absolutely and shockingly natural. I am so happy with that. I could not recommend Dr. Olson enough. To say I had more confidence in him than I did with Scottsdale, AZ surgeons that had a FAR larger price tag says something. I believe my results speak volumes as well when you compare. I got more for my money and walked out looking better than expected and I am a very picky person.

I was scheduled for breast implants and during my pre op I realized I wouldn't be able to lift anything over 20lbs for up to 6 weeks; which clashes with my job duties. It was completely my fault for misunderstanding the information about recovery but the staff and Dr. Olson were great about postponing the surgery until a time I can't take more time off work. I'm excited to come back and have the procedure done through their company. 100 out of 100 🙂

Dr. Olson is the BEST! I was referred to him for a partial tummy tuck after having the gastric sleeve operation. The entire staff was awesome, but Dr. Olson really made this experience amazing. I'm 63 years old. As I went in for appointments, I talked to him about other procedures. He never pushed any on me, in fact, he told me I didnt need some of them! I decided on a full tummy tuck, lipo, breast lift and implants. I feel and look awesome. Dr. Olson is so skilled in his field. I've known others who have had these procedures done & I must admit I look better...even at my age. I also had a little botox, Juvederm & Kybella for my neck. Again, he did a great job. He answered all my questions, has a good sense of humor and has integrity. I just wish I had this a long time ago so I would have been more self confident. I highly recommend Dr. Olson for any procedure you might be thinking of doing. You will not be sorry. He created a masterpiece with me!

I was referred to Dr. Olson after having gastric sleeve operation. I was only going to have a partial tummy tuck. Dr. Olson said he could make it look good. After thinking about it I inquired into full tummy tuck, lipo, breast lift and implants & decided on the latter. I'm SO glad I did because I look like a different 63 year old. I also had botox, Juvederm & Kybella. All procedures were 100% successful. Dr. Olson reminds me of a painter & then creates a masterpiece. What impressed me most was his integrity, honestly, cool sense of humor, professionalism & skilled hands. I only wish I had done this 30 years ago. I also want to thank the awesome staff he has!

After having a few consultations with different doctors around the valley my choice was Dr. Olsen. He was professional and gave his honest opinion on what he thought would make me happy. I was already a full D, however I needed a lift. I decided to go with a lift with a small silicone implant. I am so happy with his work and follow up care. My incisions after only 6 weeks are barley visible. I would highly recommend Dr Olsen, he is very skilled surgeon.

A year ago I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Olson. I could not have had a better experience than with Dr. Olson and the office staff. I had been to three consultations for coming to his office, and within minutes of being there I knew that he was the right doctor for me. My husband was with me at every consultation and he knew right away as well that they would be the perfect Dr. for us. It has been a year today that I had my surgery done and you can't even tell where my scars are. They were barely visible, even four months ago you could hardly see them. I am going to have future work (chin work) done and I will definitely be going back to him, as well as recommend anyone else to go to him. He called the night of surgery after I went home to see how I was doing. And I felt comfortable if I had any questions to call and ask him or the staff.

I'm going on 19 years and I was looking into getting a breast augmentation! My grandmother recommend Josh Olson because he did her knee surgery. And I must say I have never met anyone who cared for his patients as much as he does. My surgery is coming up in 6 months and I feel ready and excited for it. Dr. Olson will give you all the information you need to help you better understand what your getting your self into. ????

Dr. Olson, and his staff, made my experience great all around. I immediately felt comfortable with him. He really listened to me when I told him what I wanted and his suggested changes were right on point - I ended up looking exactly the way I wanted to! His staff is so friendly and informative. I felt extremely prepared as to what to expect before and after the surgery. I would recommend him to any one looking to have a procedure done!

When I went in for my consultation, I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable, thanks to Dr. Olson's staff. They are all so friendly and informative, they really add to the entire experience. I went in to my consultation with a fair idea of what I wanted. Dr. Olson really listened to me and then gave a few suggestions that I'm so glad I went with! I would definitely recommend him to any one looking to have a procedure done, and will be coming back here if I chose to have something done in the future.

I would highly recommend Dr. Olson! He made me feel completely comfortable right away at our consultation. I know they say you're suppose to have several consultations before deciding on a surgeon but Dr. Olson was my first surgeon i met with. Right away i knew he was the surgeon i wanted to perform my breast augmentation! Coming from someone who was skeptical about getting the procedure done, I am extremely satisfied with my results! I finally feel more confident & I would 100% recommend him!

Right away i knew he was the surgeon i wanted to perform my breast augmentation! Coming from someone who was skeptical about getting the procedure done, I am extremely satisfied with my results! I finally feel more confident & I would 100% recommend Dr. Olson. originally i was a small b cup, i wanted a fuller look. Dr. Olson recommended i get 350ccs&425ccs smooth silicone implants ( obviously one breast was originally smaller than the other) He knew exactly what he was talking about! I just had my 2 month follow up yesterday & my breasts are perfectly even! I truly am so happy with my results. The day of surgery I of course was anxious & nervous but the staff did an amazing job prepping me & making me feel so comfortable. Even in the surgery room the staff had country music playing while i was getting ready for my anesthesia. My recovery was very easy. If i had any questions from home it was very easy to get a hold of him, i would be in contact with him within minutes. Again i was extremely satisfied with my procedure, & i will be recommending Dr. Olson to anyone who asks me where i got my surgery done 🙂

Dr. Olson is the best. I went in for a consultation with him in May for a breast augmentation. He took his time explaining to me the surgery and what my options were. I was concerned with having to have a lift done because I knew this would be an extra cost. Dr. Olson explained to me the benefits of doing a lift given my breast tissue and how the implant would lay if I did not do the lift. This was extremely important as I wanted to look as perfect as possible. Ultimately, I decided on a lift with 500cc silicone implants. I am amazed with the results!!! Dr. Olson did a phenomenal job during surgery and I recovered quickly. The incisions were done so well that the scarring is barely noticeable. In fact, I talked to another woman who had the exact same procedure done at the same time by a different doctor and her scars were much bigger and darker. I definitely made the right choice with Dr. Olson! Dr. Olson and his staff were so professional and friendly through the entire process. They answered all of my questions and explained to me what I should expect step by step. Anytime I had a question, I could call the office and someone there would take the time to answer. Their follow up care was great. In fact, Dr. Olson called the night following my surgery to see how I was doing. I would suggest anyone that is considering Dr. Olson as their surgeon to make that choice. He is a highly qualified and skilled surgeon! I know you will be as happy as I am!

I had previously called around to find out about different techniques and prices for breast augmentation. Most of the places I called they wanted to make an appointment to answer any questions or tell me anything. When I called Dr. Olson's office everything was wonderful. I talked with Candace and she was very helpful and super friendly. I set up my appointment with Dr. Olson and he was just phenomenal, he was not in a rush, he listen and he was extremely helpful. In the beginning I was not sure about the recommended size, but I am so glad that I follow his advice. I am extremely happy with my results and would recommend Dr. Olson to anyone. I will return to him for any future surgeries. He is simply the BEST!!!!!

I personally get to work with Dr. Olson as his assistant on many of his cases. With the 15+ years of experience I have in the OR, I've worked with many different doctors (good and bad!) By far his skills and concern for his patients are first class! I highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Olson and his staff are absolutely amazing! They are all so helpful and made me feel comfortable from the beginning. I had a mommy makeover done and couldn't be happier with the results. Not only did Dr. Olson do an amazing job on the surgery, his follow up care has gone way beyond my expectations. He always answered any concerns I had, called and checked on me a few times, and even came to my house to check on me the day after surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Olson and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

I am 68yr. Old female who had significant issues with belly roll as a result of weight loss. I sought out several opinions and felt that Dr. Olson made me feel the most comfortable explaining my options and the procedures involved. My surgery was Jan. 9th and my recovery was easier than I expected. For two days after it was rather thingy and I did use a walker but after that I have been doing great, even have been dancing(slow dancing, of course). Love my new look and thinking about what else to do. Highly recommend Dr. Olson and his wonderful staff.

After having an excellent consultation from another surgeon in North Scottsdale, my husband encouraged me to get a second opinion. A full tummy tuck and thigh lift is a big surgery for me, so feeling comfortable with my surgeon was very important. To appease my husband, I did a quick internet search to find the closest plastic surgeon to my home. Dr. Olson came up. I did a quick search on him to make sure he was legit and found he was. I requested a consultation on-line and was contacted the next business day to set up an appointment. Upon arriving at Dr. Olson's office, I was told I was 5 hrs early for my appt and they would fit me in. After waiting an hour to see the doctor, I was fully convinced this was a waste of time. But once I met with Dr. Olson and Jenae, I quickly changed my mind! Dr. Olson and staff are very professional and personable. Once I received my quote, I was 100% committed to having Dr. Olson as my surgeon. I compared my two quotes and scheduled surgery. We had a few last minute issues (extra blood work and EKG) and change in pain medication; however, surgery day came and all went well! Dr. Olson personally called my husband as soon as I was in recovery to reassure him everything went well. That evening, Dr. Olson called me to make sure I was doing okay. I had a few questions the following day (Saturday) so I texted him and received a prompt response. I am currently four weeks post surgery and doing well. I am very happy with results so far and looking forward to my full recovery.
