Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) plastic surgery procedure is to remove excess fat and skin from the abdominal area. It can also help to restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles. There are many causes for loose or sagging skin in the abdominal area, including:

  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Weight Gain/Loss
  • Hereditary Predisposition
  • Prior Surgery

The results of a Tummy Tuck procedure are permanent. The abdominal muscles will remain firm and tight following the procedure, and excess skin removed won't come back. It is possible for events such as future pregnancies or weight fluctuations to affect the results of a Tummy Tuck. During your appointment, we will discuss the likelihood of these situations and how best to minimize their effect on the results of your procedure.

Who is a Tummy Tuck Procedure For?

Generally speaking, the best candidates for a Tummy Tuck should:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Be maintaining a stable weight
  • Have realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Be a nonsmoker
  • Have statable goals for the appearance of their abdomen
