Tummy Tuck Q & A

What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that refines the contours of your abdomen by removing excess fat and skin. A tummy tuck also restores abdominal muscles that have separated or weakened.

Some women and men choose to have a tummy tuck after losing a significant amount of weight. Others have maintained a healthy lifestyle for many years, but can’t reach their fitness goals no matter how aggressively they diet and exercise.   

A tummy tuck is a significant surgical procedure and not a decision that you should undertake without adequate consideration. This procedure is not a weight loss solution or a replacement for a healthy diet or an active lifestyle.

What are the benefits of abdominoplasty?

While a tummy tuck and liposuction both remove fat cells and create aesthetically appealing abdominal contouring, a tummy tuck provides the additional benefit of tightening your muscles and removing excess skin. If your stomach area is loose, sagging, or protrudes, a tummy tuck may be a great way to achieve a flatter and more toned abdomen.

Common causes of lost abdominal tone include:

  • Weight fluctuations
  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Genetic factors
  • Previous surgeries

Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck creates impressive and lasting results, but even the best outcomes can be negatively affected by future weight fluctuations. For this reason, it’s essential to maintain a consistent healthy weight before pursuing a tummy tuck.

You’re likely to be an ideal candidate if you’re in good health and have taken the time to research this procedure in depth. Knowing what to expect makes the recovery process easier and helps you feel great about your result.

If you’re planning to lose more than a few pounds, it’s advisable to wait until you’ve achieved your ideal weight to schedule your tummy tuck. Women planning future pregnancies should wait until after they’ve had their last child to get a tummy tuck.

When you’re ready to achieve a more flattering abdominal profile, schedule a consultation with Dr. Brauman to discuss the tummy tuck procedure in more detail.
