Morpheus8 For the Abdomen in Apple Valley and San Diego

Keeping Up with the Abdomens

Morpheus8 for the abdomen is a minimally invasive procedure that can help improve the appearance of the skin on your midsection. The Morpheus8 device uses radiofrequency energy to heat deep tissue, which stimulates collagen production, leading to a firmer, more sculpted appearance. Used by Kim Kardashian, the queen of body aesthetics, patients who want to see similar results can achieve them with Morpheus8. The machine’s handpiece emits high-frequency energy that penetrates the skin and induces mild, controlled injuries to its upper layers at a customized depth for each patient. Collagen and elastin—two important skin-building components—are generated as the body repairs these wounds.

Dr. Ali Tehrani offers Morpheus8 treatments to patients in Apple Valley and San Diego. Tehrani Plastic Surgery‘s state-of-the-art facility gives patients deluxe treatment, so you won’t just look like a Kardashian; you’ll be pampered like one.

How Does Morpheus8 for the Abdomen Work?

Morpheus8 uses microneedling to deliver radiofrequency energy below the surface of the skin. The Morpheus8 process uses subdermal adipose remodeling devices (SARDs) to precisely target and delivers radiofrequency energy deep into the skin and fat layers. The result is fractional coagulation of the cells, which triggers your body’s natural healing process to boost collagen production, strengthen tissue connections, and tighten skin. The skin cells are also remodeled, resulting in a more even and corrected appearance of the skin. [1]

Morpheus8 for the abdomen can be used to treat several concerns, including:

  • Loose skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars


Subdermal adipose remodeling devices address many cosmetic concerns. These tiny devices deliver radiofrequency energy deep into the layers of skin and fat. Morpheus8 Body is the first and only FDA-cleared technology that provides profound subdermal tissue remodeling, which means a higher level of body contouring.

What is Radiofrequency Energy?

Radiofrequency (RF) technology continues to gain popularity, with the use of these treatments increasing by about 10% or more every year. [1] So it’s no surprise that patients are flocking to Morpheus8.

Radiofrequency energy is a form of electromagnetic radiation that can heat tissue; this energy has been used for medical purposes for over 75 years. It is commonly used in physical therapy to treat pain and, in cosmetic fields, to tighten skin. [2]

Morpheus8 uses a specific frequency of radiofrequency energy that has been shown to break down fat cells and increase collagen production. The device is designed not to burn the skin because it has a patented cooling system that protects the skin while delivering energy. [1]

While there are many surgical ways to address loose skin and small pockets of abdominal fat, only one in ten women opt for surgery over a non-invasive treatment like Morpheus8 [3]; this means the demand for this treatment is enormous, and Dr. Tehrani is happy to answer the call!

Benefits of Morpheus8 for the Abdomen

Morpheus8 can be used on any body area, but it is most commonly used on the face, neck, and abdomen. For patients who are not ready for surgery or need minimal skin tightening to achieve taut skin, Morpheus8 is an excellent option.

Kim’s Endorsement

Kim Kardashian sings the praises of the Morpheus8 system on her Instagram. She used it to tighten her stomach after giving birth and again recently to tighten things further. Kim Kardashian calls Morpheus8 a “game changer,” and we agree!

Push your abdomen over the edge from just okay to no way! As in, “No way you get to look that good… where do I sign up?” Just like Kim’s followers flocked to the treatment after she posted about it, you will inspire your friends when they see your gorgeous results.

Candidates for Morpheus8

Morpheus8 for the abdomen is a great option for candidates who do not have a lot of weight to lose, as this is not a weight loss treatment. Think of it in terms of Kim Kardashian: she looks incredible, and this treatment pushes her to the next level of greatness. The ideal candidate is someone who wants to improve the appearance of their abdomen, whether they have a little bit of excess skin or just want to sculpt stubborn pockets of fat further.

Morpheus8 can also be used for people who have had previous abdominal surgeries, such as a tummy tuck, and want to improve the results of their surgery; this is an excellent option for people who may not be able to have another surgery or don’t want to go through the recovery process again.

Morpheus8 can even be used on people who have scars from previous abdominal surgeries, such as a c-section scar, as this can help improve the appearance of the scar.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your abdomen, then Morpheus8 may be a great option. Call our office today to get one step closer to the silhouette of your dreams. Call (949) 706-7776 or fill out our contact form so we can be in touch with you shortly.

Your Consultation

During your personal consultation, we will determine if you are a candidate for this treatment. We will do this by evaluating your medical history and doing a physical examination. We will also take photographs of your abdomen. These photos will be used to compare your results after treatment.

After Dr. Tehrani has determined that you are a candidate for Morpheus8, he will develop a tailored treatment plan for you. This treatment plan will take into account your goals, medical history, and the condition of your skin.

You will also be given a chance to ask any questions that you may have about the treatment during your consultation. We want you to feel comfortable and confident with your decision to use Morpheus8 on your abdomen.

Preparing for Morpheus8 Treatment

There is little to do to prepare for treatment! Arrive on the day of your appointment in loose clothing that you can easily adjust to expose your mid-section. Avoid lotions, oils, and makeup in the treatment area. It is always a good idea to stay hydrated and get a good night of sleep before your session. Additionally, patients can conveniently fill out their patient forms online to expedite check-in.

The Morpheus8 Procedure

Morpheus8 is unique in penetrating different depths beneath the skin’s surface. Therefore, depending on your desired results, your practitioner will adjust the depth of treatment.

Morpheus8 uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to achieve its effects. Microneedling resurfaces the outer layer of skin by creating microscopic wounds; this triggers the body’s natural healing response, which increases collagen production.

Radiofrequency energy penetrates deeper into the skin to target stubborn fat cells. The heat from the radiofrequency energy breaks down these cells, which are then naturally flushed out by the body.

Here are the different depths the Morheus8 can achieve and the effects of each depth:

  • Superficial: This is the ideal depth for the basic contouring of loose skin.
  • Middle: This is the ideal depth for treating moderate skin laxity.
  • Deep: This is the ideal depth for more intense skin tightening.

You may feel a prickling sensation as the microneedles enter your skin, but this should not be painful; Kim Kardashian said the feeling of Morpheus8 treatment is “actually not that bad.[4] Additionally, the radiofrequency component may cause your skin to feel warm, but the patented cooling technology makes the sensation very tolerable.

Recovery from Morpheus8

Recovery from Morpheus8 for the abdomen is typically quick, with most patients resuming their normal activities immediately following treatment. The majority of patients report minimal pain and redness. The Morpheus8 should not burn the skin; if you have previously received treatment that burned your skin, it was due to operator error. Dr. Tehrani understands the treatments he offers his patients and trains his staff to the highest standards.
