As a highly experienced plastic surgeon, I feel strongly that my patients should be as well-informed as possible before undergoing any kind of plastic surgery procedure. In addition, they should be realistic about the results they are expecting to see after surgery.
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is an effective, highly successful way to reduce excess fat and loose skin, and tighten and tone weakened or separated stomach muscles. The result? A smoother, firmer, more shapely midsection. To learn more about the range of body sculpting procedures I offer, click here.
A tummy tuck will improve, not completely transform, your life
As I tell my patients who are considering this surgery, it’s important to understand that a tummy tuck will not give you an entirely new life or suddenly make you look like a supermodel or movie star. Your age, muscle tone, body type, amount of fat and the elasticity of your skin will ultimately determine the end result.
For some people, having a tummy tuck motivates them to live a healthier lifestyle and finally give up some bad habits, such as binge eating. For others, a tummy tuck is a permanent solution to the loose, sagging skin that resulted from losing a significant amount of weight.
Whatever your reason for having this procedure, a tummy tuck can be a wonderful turning point in your life, boosting your self-esteem and enabling you to feel confident about your body and yourself.
