Ready To Say Goodbye To Your Flabby Tummy and Sagging Skin?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jul 29, 2020 6:00:00 AM

For a lot of women, after multiple pregnancies or extreme weight loss, their stomach muscles become soft, flabby and distended. In many cases, even a healthy diet and exercise do not fix the problem. One solution that I often suggest that is effective and has long-lasting results is a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty.

A tummy tuck surgically tightens weak, separated abdominal muscles and removes excess skin and fat. The result? A flatter, tighter, more toned midsection. In addition, many of my patients experience improved posture and decreased back pain after having this procedure, due to the tightened muscles supporting their spine. To learn more about the range of body sculpting  procedures I offer, click here.

How does a tummy tuck “fix” sagging skin?

Requiring 1-2 hours in the operating room under general anesthesia, a typical tummy tuck removes several pounds of stomach fat and excess skin, and tightens weakened and/or separated abdominal muscles. It can also decrease stretch marks caused by pregnancy, and dramatically improve scars from previous surgeries, such as a Caesarean section, stomach stapling or an appendectomy.

Thinking About a Tummy Tuck? Make Sure It's For The Right Reasons

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jul 8, 2020 6:00:00 AM


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.

What Is A Tummy Tuck And Should I Get One?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Mar 18, 2020 6:00:00 AM

“I exercise and eat healthy. Why do I still have loose skin around my tummy?” This is a question I hear from many of my patients. They try really hard to work out and live a healthy lifestyle, but they still have stubborn areas of fat deposits and loose, flabby skin around their midsection.

For these patients, I often recommend a tummy tuck. In addition to tummy tucks, I also offer a wide range of other body sculpting procedures to help you achieve a more shapely body, which you can learn about here.

You Lost The Weight. With A Tummy Tuck, You Can Also Lose The Excess Skin.

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Feb 5, 2020 6:00:00 AM

You’ve lost weight – what an accomplishment! You have a new body, better health, more energy, increased self-confidence and a renewed outlook on life. All’s good, right? Well…not in all cases.

What many people don’t realize about losing a significant amount of weight (50 pounds or more) is that loose, sagging skin is often a result, along with their new shape. After working so hard to change their body and improve their health, these folds of hanging skin can be very discouraging for both men and women, like their old clothes that are now too big. For some, they can also act as a reminder of their old life and the emotional issues they were struggling with when they were at a higher weight.

As well as being unsightly and embarrassing, excess skin can cause rashes, chafing, infections and back pain. It can also keep people from being as active as they want to be, which can negate the health gains they made and make it easier for the weight to come back. All in all, it can be very frustrating.

There is a solution! A tummy tuck

Loose Skin From Weight Loss? Consider a Tummy Tuck.

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Apr 11, 2018 7:00:00 AM

Losing a significant amount of weight is a great accomplishment, giving you a new body, better health, more energy, increased self-image and a renewed outlook on life. However, what many people don’t realize is that there’s also a downside to extreme weight loss.

In many cases, people who lose 50 pounds or more are left with loose, sagging skin, which can be very frustrating. After working hard to get a “new body,” it’s discouraging for both men and women to have folds of skin hanging on them, much like their old large-size clothes did. Also, excess skin is a reminder for many of their old life and the emotional issues they were struggling with when they were at a higher weight.

In addition, as well as being unsightly and embarrassing, saggy skin has negative health consequences. It can cause rashes, chafing, infections and back pain. It can also keep people from being as active as they want to be, which not only affects their health but might make it easier for the weight to come back.

My recommendation in these instances? A tummy tuck.
