Most patients come to us seeking a tummy tuck because they want to improve the appearance of sagging skin in the area. The unattractive effect can be the result of extreme weight loss, pregnancy, simply growing older – or a combination of any or all three. By removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscle, we can give you back a stomach with normal contour. And it can be a life-altering treatment.
Tummy tuck to the rescue
You might be looking for that flat, shapely silhouette you’ve never had before, or you might want to go back to a time when you did. Either way, a tummy tuck might provide the visually aesthetic solution you want. But that’s not all.
A tummy tuck can come with added benefits
In addition to improving your appearance, there are some additional bonuses that a tummy tuck can provide. The procedure can offer some real health benefits you may not have considered, even as you’ve considered having the procedure.
Your tummy tuck could help enhance weight loss surgery
Research has shown that stomach reduction weight loss surgery patients do better at keeping the weight off over time if they also have a tummy tuck.
Your tummy tuck could encourage you to exercise
Excess skin and weak abdominal muscles can make it difficult to exercise for lots of reasons. A tummy tuck can remove physical and psychological obstacles to taking up aerobic exercise, such as running and brisk walking, and make you less self-conscious about going to a gym.
Your tummy tuck could help your posture improve
After extreme weight loss, you are likely to have a lot of excess skin around your middle and weakened abdominal muscles. This can lead to a sway back and pain. By tightening your stomach muscles, a tummy tuck procedure can give your spine the additional support it needs to help you stand up straighter and reduce pain.
