Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
*No two procedures are the same and results will vary from patient to patient.
An Abdominoplasty, or as it’s more commonly referred to as a Tummy Tuck, is a surgical solution for managing excess amounts of fat and skin. It can also tighten the abdominal muscles. Since diet and exercise alone cannot rid of loose skin or a protruding belly, a Tummy Tuck may be the right solution for both men and women, especially those who may have experienced a dramatic weight loss. A Tummy Tuck can also be useful for those who have made serious efforts to lose weight without success.*
Look as Great as You Feel
Losing weight is an amazing achievement! The last thing you want to deal with after dramatic weight loss is a soft, flabby stomach from extra skin. A tummy tuck is designed to remove this skin and excess fat to give your abdominal muscles a firmer, more toned appearance. In some cases, the procedure may even help to rid of stretch marks on your stomach or hips.*
Take a look at some of our before and after photos to get an idea of the type of transformation a Tummy Tuck will provide.* The best candidates for this type of procedure are those who are at a stable weight or slightly above a desired weight and are bothered by the look of their stomach. Following the procedure, it will take between one and two weeks to fully recover – and then you will be ready to show off all the shed pounds with a flatter, more solid tummy! These results can be lifelong if you continue to exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet.
