Tummy Tuck

Combining a Tummy Tuck with Liposuction

Abdominoplasty, which is more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, can be a powerful way to slim the waistline and rid the abdominal area of loose, excess skin. After pregnancy or significant weight loss, many individuals find that a tummy tuck addresses inelastic skin and stretched musculature in ways that dieting and exercise cannot, offering a highly effective treatment to smooth and tighten the midsection. While the main goals of a tummy tuck are to remove excess skin while tightening abdominal musculature, most patients also struggle with fat pockets and stubborn bulges near the stomach region. “Love handles” and other exercise-resistant areas of localized fat often persist in spite of healthy habits, creating frustration for men and women who would like a figure that...

Am I a Candidate for Tummy Tuck?

The primary cosmetic concern shared by most individuals considering a tummy tuck is excess skin or skin sagging from the lower abdomen. A tummy tuck is designed to remove this loose skin for a more fit appearance and a sleeker silhouette. Oftentimes, tummy tuck candidates are men or women who have lost a significant amount of weight, either from rigorous diet and exercise or bariatric surgery. Mothers who want to regain a flatter stomach after pregnancy also often choose a tummy tuck to achieve their goals. A tummy tuck is not intended as a weight loss procedure, and candidates should be at or near their target body weight for the best results. Although the reasons for choosing a tummy tuck may vary from patient to... Continue Reading
