To learn more about tummy tucks and related medical procedures performed at the Crown Valley Outpatient Surgical Center or to find one of the best plastic surgeons in Orange County, feel free to call us directly to set up an appointment today.
Tummy tucks, along with other types of popular cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, facelifts, body contouring, eyelid surgery, and breast augmentation, make up a considerable amount of the plastic surgery performed here at the Crown Valley Outpatient Surgical Center. As a result, you can trust that your surgeon and the entirety of our staff are both experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to your specific procedure.
At our Orange County center, tummy tucks begin with an initial evaluation. Throughout the process, you will be able to talk with one of our board-certified surgeons about your needs and desired and expected results. The actual procedure, called an abdominoplasty, involves the removal of excess skin and fat in your abdominal area. It can also restore weak muscles for a flatter and tighter tummy result that you might not be able to achieve by yourself through exercise and diet changes alone.
Tummy tucks in Orange County are much more comfortable and accessible with our minimally-invasive techniques that allow you recover faster and see quicker results. Our techniques also allow us to perform your tummy tuck procedure right here in the center rather than requiring you to stay in a large or impersonal hospital.
During the time leading up to your procedure, be sure to follow any of the instructions given to you by your surgeon. Your Orange County tummy tuck surgeon may have specific directions regarding what you can eat or drink in the days leading up to your surgery, as well as any medications you should take or avoid.
When you arrive at our outpatient center on the day of your surgery, you will check in with one of our administrators and will fill out forms regarding your insurance information and health history. If you have already filled out these forms, please be sure to bring them with you on the day of your surgery.
Once you have finished the check in process, one of our trained nurses will take you to a pre-operation area to take your vital statistics and prepare you for the surgery. An anesthesiologist will meet with you to go over any necessary steps for anesthesia and pain relief during your procedure.
Your surgeon will then perform your tummy tuck procedure alongside a trained medical team. After your procedure, you will be taken to a comfortable recovery room until you are ready to leave the same day to continue recovering in your own home. You may want to have someone to help you around the house for at least a few weeks following the tummy tuck procedure. The area where the surgery was performed will be bandaged and contain some stitches, so it is important to avoid strenuous activity for about six weeks. Your surgeon will talk to you about when you can return to work and other normal activities, depending on your career and lifestyle. Finally, your doctor will discuss with you ahead of time which type of medication you should take to minimize pain during recovery. Following up with your surgeon during the recovery process is important and helps your surgeon give you personalized advice for your tummy tuck in Orange County.

I agree the care and people are great. However, their management tricked me into an out of network surgery. After repeatedly making it clear that I wanted all aspects of the surgery to be in network with UHC, they booked my surgery on a day when the facility switches to a different business entity called Minimally Invasive Surgical Center. So, a simple hemorrhoid procedure that normally bills for under 3K within network was billexto my insurance for 62.5k. Of course they had me pay $1,400 out of pocket just before performing yhe surgery and also had me sign numerous documents right before the procedure. If I would have received these forms, particularly the one that stated that I knew it was an out of network provider, I would have never signed it. The owner of Minimally Invasive called me on the phone when I was still plannibg the surgery to try to talk me into accepting performing out of network in exchange for some cash discount. I tefused but he still set it up as out of network without my consent. I am extremely dissapointed in these people who now refuse to re-pricess the claim. Beware of what day your surgery takes place and make sure to get all forms well ahead of your procedure date. Soecially those related to payment and claim type, or you might end up with a very expensive surprise. This is the stuff of crooks.
5 stars is not good enough for how amazing these people are! Had my producer done here on 4/23/2021 with Dr. Syn. The whole process from beginning to end was pretty great (yes... the surgery process that everyone hates). The surgery center was clean and everyone had their stuff together from the moment I parked in the check-in spot, till check-out. I can never say enough about the nurses, they are the kindest people and I am so thankful to have had them there. Even though I’ve never met them before, they made me feel at ease and we’re just kind humans ❤️Definitely recommend 🤙🏼
Definitely recommend, fast easy process. They make sure your well informed on whats happening, and if your nervous they’ll talk to you about stuff that makes you happy, especially helped when i was getting my IV.
A couple of weeks ago my mother had a bad experience at this center. She overheard the nurses making rude comments about a patient.I felt very uncomfortable going threw my procedure after what I herd.Very unprofessional attitude, please avoid this place I made the mistake of coming here.
I saw Dr. Shad after my aunt recommended me to him for back pain. I had pretty bad back pain for a young adult. Upon the first appointment he felt my injury and immediately identified the area in pain and explained everything to me. My back is doing great now and I am able to go back for tissue work when needed. Never had more confidence in a doctor then I do with Dr. Shad, definitely recommend!
I just had a procedure done here this morning. The center is very clean and orderly. The nurses were so friendly and kind, it was like talking to a friend. The anesthesiologist had great bedside manner and was honestly the nicest one I’ve ever met. Dr. Jenkins is very sweet and made sure I felt comfortable and informed. She is always very bubbly and makes you feel at ease. Really great people at this place! Highly recommend if you are needing a procedure done.
I have had a number of procedures done. The staff are amazing they took such good care of me. Dr. Ding communicates on a real level.Highly recommend this crew if you ever need surgery they are equipped for
My wife had surgery at your Facility. Dr Tony Mork was the surgeon. We were very impressed with your neat little surgery center. We got very personal care.. Thinking back 10 months when she had surgery we still remember well 😊
The morning admittance gal who was friendly , knowledgeable and put my nervousness about surgery at ease helped me fill out the necessary forms for surgery. The next nurse prepped me for surgery and explained what would be happening. Again,very personable, organized, and knowledgeableAnother nurse came over and told me she would be helping the doctor in surgery and again explained what was going on. Friendly The orthopedic surgeon came in and spine to me about the surgery also kind and caring. Then surgery was over and I was again met with a kind nurse to help me adjust to waking up. This may all sound very routine to who ever reads this but surgery is Not, routine and it is damm scary to the patient and their families. To be taken care of by friendly, kind caring and knowledgeable staff is so important. My husband And I are grateful for the entire team here at Crown Valley Surgical. Thank you, Barbara and Jeff tatro
