Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Candidates for a tummy tuck are those who:

  • Have excess skin following weight loss or pregnancy.
  • Possess a stable weight.
  • Are in good overall health.
  • Have realistic expectations and understand the procedure’s outcomes.

What results can I realistically expect with a Tummy Tuck?

After undergoing a tummy tuck procedure, patients can look forward to a range of transformative outcomes. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the expected results:
5

Flatter, firmer abdominal profile:

One of the primary benefits of a tummy tuck is the achievement of a toned and tightened abdomen. This is especially beneficial for those who have experienced muscle separation or diastasis recti, commonly resulting from pregnancy or significant weight fluctuations.
5

Reduction or elimination of stretch marks:

A tummy tuck can significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks, especially those located on the lower abdomen. While not all stretch marks can be removed, those situated on the excess skin that is excised during the procedure will be eliminated, leading to a smoother skin texture.
5

Enhanced body image and boosted self-confidence:

Beyond the physical improvements, a tummy tuck often leads to a renewed sense of self. With a contoured silhouette, many patients report feeling more confident in their clothing choices and more comfortable in social situations.
5

Improved posture:

With the tightening of abdominal muscles, some patients notice an improvement in their posture, which can also alleviate certain types of back pain.
5

Long-lasting results:

While the outcomes of a tummy tuck are designed to last, it is essential to note that significant weight gain or future pregnancies can impact the surgery’s benefits. Therefore, maintaining a stable weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle are crucial for preserving the results.
5

Scar Management:

It’s important to understand that a tummy tuck will leave a scar, typically located low on the abdomen where it can be concealed by underwear or swimwear. Over time, with proper care, this scar can fade and become less noticeable.
