Benefits of Tummy Tuck
What exactly is Tummy Tuck surgery?
Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
Who is a good candidate for Tummy Tuck surgery?
Anyone with stretched abdominal skin or muscles who hasn’t had success with diet and exercise may be a good candidate.
Can’t I just exercise to tone my abdomen?
Weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and age lead to permanently stretched abdominal skin and muscles. Exercise may help, but it might not sufficiently correct skin laxity and separated abdominal muscles. Our medical team will help you determine whether surgical options are a good choice for you.
Can I choose to have Abdominal Liposuction instead of a Tummy Tuck?
Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery treat different conditions. The fat reduction of liposuction will not correct loose skin. Conversely, abdominoplasty alone may not adequately address excess fat, especially if outside the abdomen. Often they are done together for best results. Our Doctors will advise you on the best treatment options for you.
Can I combine a Tummy Tuck with other procedures?
