What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that flattens your tummy by removing excess or loose skin and fat. It also tightens the abdominal muscles and reshapes your tummy to make it flat and firm.

Tummy tucks come in two forms depending on the amount of skin and fat involved, known as mini tummy tucks and full tummy tucks. A mini tummy tuck removes excess fat and loose skin from the belly button downwards, while a full tummy tuck is ideal for loose skin and excess above and below the belly button.

While it is a popular procedure for women, both men and women can get a tummy tuck to improve and enhance their appearance. The surgery is typically combined with some liposuction to achieve your desired shape and effect.

Who Qualifies for a Tummy Tuck?

Getting a tummy tuck for cosmetic purposes is a personal decision if you are unhappy with your belly's appearance. Common reasons for tummy tucks include stretched or sagging belly after weight loss or pregnancy, a protruding belly, or to enhance your appearance after losing weight through diet and exercise.

However, you need to meet a few requirements to improve your chances of success and attain optimal results. To gauge whether you are an effective candidate for a tummy tuck, it's important for you to:

  • Be at or around your ideal weight
  • Have realistic expectations about what the surgery can do for your body
  • Be in good health and do not smoke
  • Be willing to commit to a healthy lifestyle after the procedure to maintain the results

You may not qualify for a tummy tuck if you have a BMI above 60, have a history of complications after surgery, or have health conditions like heart disease. When you visit our practice, our team will listen to you and assess your situation, including checking your medical history, to ensure a tummy tuck is a safe and appropriate solution for you.

What Is the Recovery Time After a Tummy Tuck?

Recovery time after a tummy tuck varies from one person to another. Usually, you'll need to wear an abdominal binding for at least six weeks after your surgery to support your tummy and prevent fluid build-up. During the healing period, we'll schedule visits for you to see the doctor as needed to avoid complications and ensure you are healing as expected.
