Know Someone Who Needs a Tummy Tuck?

Please note: This study is closed, but if another opens up, we will post a new alert. Thank you!

We are looking for candidates for a new study here at Marina Plastic Surgery. We’ve been selected by Cohera Medical, lnc. as one of five plastic surgery centers in the U.S. to participate in a national clinical research trial to test an experimental product – a tissue glue – that may aid in wound closure following abdominoplasty surgery

The “tummy tuck” surgery as it is commonly called will be performed by either by me or Dr. Michelle Spring at our fully accredited surgical center.  Financial consideration will be made for qualified participants.

Typical tummy tuck patients are frustrated that they cannot lose that last hanging flabby skin.  No creams will lift lax tummy skin, no amount of crunches will tighten loose stomach muscles, and even the healthiest diet will not be able to reduce certain fat deposits along the abdominal wall. Only a tummy tuck can help address this problem area sufficiently.

We are looking for specific types of patients who fit the study qualifications. These qualifications include:

• 18 years of age or older

• Non-smoker

• General good health

• Not pregnant or nursing

• No previous abdominoplasty

• Agree to not schedule any additional elective surgeries involving an incision to the abdomen until your study participation is complete

• Are available for follow up evaluations for three months following surgery

During the initial qualifying consultation, we will review your medical history. Photos will be taken and you should bring a list of medications, vitamins and herbal supplements that you take.

For more information, call 877-298-9915.


  1. This is such a great opportunity for someone seeking a tummy tuck. Two world class surgeons in one of the best practices in the nation. I look forward to seeing the results!

    1. Yrs I lost some weight floppy stomach can’t get my tummy flat. Am 46 yrs old and feeling depress about my saggy skin.. not sexy

  2. I’ve just made my appt fr tomorrow with Dr. Stevens. I almost reach my weight goal and am contemplating for this. I’m not saggy but I have bulge from 4 pregnancies. It says “financial consideration” is a term of cut price for being in trial study if you are approved. I’m going to find out what dr. Stevens going to say about my tummy and I might post it later.

    1. what phone number did you call i get no options for the trial when i call and ive emailed with no answer whAT price are you looking at paying for a tummy tuck

  3. Are you all still looking for candidates… I’ve recently had two kids and dropped some weight therefore I have a lot of excess skin, I’d love to have a tummy tuck but cannot afford one at this time.

  4. Does this offer still stand? I’m really interested! I lost 100lb after a twin pregnancy, and was left with saggy skin.

      1. Are you still accepting patients I emailed web and Facebook one was yes one said no, I’m really interested so is it still going on

  5. I am a perfect candidate for dramatic results. I have had six children, I am thin and in great shape for 44. My stomach has stretch marks and baggy skin. My breast are sagging and lost volume. Since I simply need help with breast and my tummy, my after photo would be amazing difference. Since I am the proper weight and thin it would be a great attraction for other candidates. I am a school teacher and mother, so I cannot afford the procedures. I have a twin sister who had a tummy tuck and it looks great. She is my mirror image, so I know it will look great on me also.

    1. I’m a healthy weight, and meet all the requirements. I have loose skin that I’ve been living with for 10 years.Very interested in getting tummy tuck.

  6. This trial is closed, and we are waiting to see if the FDA will approve the tissue glue. Anyone interested in a tummy tuck should call the office (310) 827-2653 and book a complimentary appointment to see if you are a good candidate. Thanks, WGS.

    1. Hi there. This trial has been over for quite awhile, but we will be announcing new ones as they become available. That said, they do not happen frequently but keep an eye on this blog where we would let you know about them. WGS

  9. I’m nearly 60 years of age. I’ve lost 100 lbs. And can’t lose anymore and exercise because my tummy hangs very very low and causes severe rashes and pain between my shoulder blades.

    1. This is very typical after losing a lot of weight. Good for you though for taking your health so seriously. Perhaps you should schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon to see what can be done. Grant Stevens

  10. I am 42 years old and I’ve lost weight. I work out but cant get rid of my stomach. I would very much like to be considered for your clinical trial.
