I’ve had surgery with Dr. Sorokin a few times and have never been disappointed. He and his entire team made me feel like one of the family!
Tight, taut and trim results.
The Tummy Tuck (also called abdominoplasty) is such a marvelous procedure! Like many people, you’ve probably worked hard to eat right and exercise, but your stubborn belly fat just won’t go away. A Tummy Tuck addresses so many concerns that just are not fixable with diet and exercise.
Board-certified plastic surgeon and body contouring specialist, Dr. Evan Sorokin performs tummy tuck surgery to give Philadelphia residents the firm, fit midsection they can’t get on their own. This is one of Dr. Sorokin’s favorite procedures to perform, right after breast augmentation! Request a consultation today.

A tummy tuck gives New Jersey and Philadelphia residents a variety of improvements, including:
- Eliminating abdominal fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise
- Removing excess skin that remains after weight loss and pregnancy
- Tightening loose and separated abdominal muscles caused by pregnancy
- Aligning abdominal muscles for a more flattering appearance
For a more sculpted body contour, Dr. Sorokin can combine a tummy tuck with liposuction. Many women choose a Mommy Makeover, which combines a tummy tuck and liposuction with breast enhancement surgery to restore their pre-pregnancy shape.
A tummy tuck involves surgical removal of excess skin or fatty deposits from the abdomen, along with the repositioning of abdominal muscles into a tighter formation. This procedure is designed for those who wish to have a flatter and tighter stomach, and is also helpful in remedying the separation of abdominal muscles known as diastasis, which can occur following pregnancy. Many patients suffer from lax skin and muscles after massive weight loss and pregnancies and this is a very common procedure.
Our tummy tuck patients can expect the surgery to last anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, depending on their desired look and unique physiology. To begin the procedure, Dr. Sorokin makes an incision just above the pubic bone area and extends the incision horizontally across the lower abdomen and sometimes around to the back. The skin is then lifted away from the muscle tissue, and excess fat and skin are removed. Abdominal muscle tissue is tightened to provide a firmly-contoured stomach and well-defined waistline. Finally, Dr. Sorokin closes the incision by stitching the skin back into place. Often the procedure requires an additional incision around the navel in order to rejuvenate the belly button and to provide the best results.
For the first few days after the procedure, your abdominal area may be swollen and you may feel some discomfort, which can be controlled by medication. You will have a drain, which we’ll teach you how to use, for about a week. Dr. Sorokin uses “Exparel” which is a long-lasting 72-hour anesthetic on all of his tummy tucks to minimize the pain involved in the procedure. Dr. Sorokin will provide you with detailed instructions for showering and changing your bandages. In addition, Dr. Sorokin encourages you to start walking as soon as possible, and normal activities generally can be resumed in 3 weeks, though heavy exercise should be avoided until at least 6 weeks. The stitches will be removed shortly after your surgery.
It may take a month or two before you can engage in all your usual activities, and your body may need up to a year to completely adapt to the new abdominal configuration. Your scars may actually look worse during the first 3 to 6 months as they heal, but this is normal. After about 9 months, your scars should begin to flatten out and lighten in color. Thankfully, abdominal scars will not show under most clothing, including bathing suits. With proper diet and exercise you will be able to enjoy the results of your surgery for many years.
