MAsterTuck℠ Tummy Tuck

MAsterTuck is a truncal liposuction procedure patented and solely performed by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi. MAsterTuck uses the VASER® LipoSelection system to sculpt the body and achieve natural-looking results for patients. The difference between MAsterTuck with the VASER® Lipo System and other liposuction methods is that MAsterTuck can deliver significant skin retraction without the need for skin excision, resulting in a smooth final contour and shape. MAsterTuck is primarily used to target the truncal part of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, and lower back. The presence of excess fatty deposits around these areas is very common in both men and women. Patients who are struggling with exercise or diet-resistant fat around the midsection can undergo MAsterTuck to remove small pockets of unwanted fat cells for a firmer-looking physique. MAsterTuck can also be combined with other body contouring techniques, including abdominoplasty or body lift surgery, for substantial results.

What Is MAsterTuck?

During your MAsterTuck procedure, tiny incisions are made around the treatment areas and the VASER® Lipo cannula is inserted beneath the skin. This probe delivers ultrasound energy to surrounding fat cells, effectively liquefying them. Unwanted fat cells are then gently removed from the body while leaving the surrounding fibrous tissues unharmed. Unlike traditional liposuction, which can leave behind sagging skin after fat removal, MAsterTuck does not result in skin laxity at the treatment site. Instead, the VASER® energy delivered during the MAsterTuck procedure encourages skin retraction, leading to a firming effect.

MAsterTuck Traditional Liposuction
Can remove excess fat deposits around the midsection, flanks, and back Targets stubborn fat pockets around the body
Encourages skin tightening, leading to a firmer, more contoured appearance Does not achieve significant skin retraction
Does not require the excision of loose or excess skin left behind after fat removal May leave behind drooping skin after the removal of unwanted fat

What Can I Expect Before My MAsterTuck Procedure?

Your current health and medical history will be evaluated by Dr. Asaadi to determine if you are a candidate for MAsterTuck. Ideal candidates are not obese, and despite dietary restrictions and vigorous exercise, they are unable to eliminate localized fatty deposits. Patients struggling with weakened or stretched abdominal muscles will not benefit from this procedure, however.

On average, MAsterTuck is conducted as a same-day surgery procedure in an outpatient center and usually lasts less than 3.5 hours, where 5000 cc of fat or less is removed. In the event that the MAsterTuck procedure requires more than 3.5 hours of time and / or more than 5000 cc of fat to be removed, the patient will be admitted to the hospital for proper monitoring. General anesthesia is administered during your treatment.

MAsterTuck patients are given pre-procedure instructions in preparation for MAsterTuck surgery. Certain medications, supplements, foods, or beverages may need to be avoided in the weeks preceding treatment. It is recommended to arrange for a friend or family member to drive you to and from your MAsterTuck surgery. Additionally, it is strongly suggested that you plan for a few days to fully rest after treatment. Dr. Asaadi and our staff will discuss more pre-surgery guidelines during your in-office consultation.

What Can I Expect After My MAsterTuck Procedure?

Slight swelling, bruising, or discomfort is common following your MAsterTuck procedure. These side effects should improve within a few days. Dr. Asaadi will prescribe the proper medication to help alleviate these symptoms. Stitches are usually removed after a few weeks.

You should avoid any rigorous exercise or housework for the following weeks to allow for adequate rest and recovery. Patients can usually return to work within 1-2 weeks, though recovery ultimately varies from patient to patient. Dr. Asaadi, as well as our staff, are available to assist with any post-treatment questions you may have.

MAsterTuck is a safe procedure that can achieve predictable and significant skin contraction, while also addressing unwanted fat pockets around the midsection, flanks, or lower back. This innovative liposuction treatment can achieve long-lasting improvements to the truncal part of the body. MAsterTuck patients usually experience skin contraction continuing for a few months after surgery. Dr. Asaadi places all incisions to ensure that post-procedure scars remain inconspicuous.

The Importance Of Choosing A Highly Experienced Plastic Surgeon

It is important that you choose a skilled plastic surgeon who understands your individual anatomy, as every patient’s body is different. When the right plastic surgeon performs body contouring, there is usually no need for a revision. Dr. Asaadi stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon when considering body sculpting. Dr. Asaadi pioneered the MAsterTuck technique and can explain this innovative procedure in more detail during your consultation.
