Tummy tuck candidates and process

The ideal candidates for tummy tucks are men and women in relatively good shape, but who have areas of fat or skin that won’t respond to proper diet and exercise. Moms, in particular, can see great benefits from tummy tucks, which can help to restore the stomach and hip areas to pre-baby form.

You may benefit from a tummy tuck if you:

  • Had a child
  • Have recently lost or gained a significant amount of weight
  • Are experiencing loose or sagging skin due to aging

In your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck options. Usually, the surgery elected depends on your desired outcome and recovery time, as well as the laxity of your skin.

Our doctors are trained to perform this surgery, and they will tailor your procedure to meet your specific needs and wants, ensuring that any concerns about your tummy are addressed. After your tummy tuck, you will be comforted in our recovery area, where your surgeon will discuss post-operative instructions with you.

Tummy tucks are designed to be permanent; however, any significant weight gain could lessen the effectiveness of the procedure. If you are planning to lose substantial weight or plan to get pregnant, this surgery may not be for you.
