12 Questions to Ask Your Plastic Surgeon Before Getting a Tummy Tuck

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on May 16, 2018 6:00:00 AM

 

Are you unhappy with how you look in bathing suits or lingerie? Are you ready to lose your tummy rolls and love handles? Would you really like to have a sexy, toned, flat stomach and trim midsection? A tummy tuck may very well be the beautiful solution you’ve been looking for.

A tummy tuck, 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, flatter midsection.

Tummy tuck surgery also strengthens weakened stomach muscles, improves the look and shape of the belly button, takes away fat and loose skin, defines the waist, creates a tighter abdomen and enables clothes to fit more comfortably and attractively. To learn more about the range of body sculpting  procedures I offer, click here.

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.

How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Sep 20, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Do you wish you had a flatter, tighter, more toned tummy? Would you like to feel more confident in bathing suits and lingerie? Would you like to get your pre-pregnancy body back? If so, a tummy tuck might be the right solution for you.

What exactly is a tummy tuck?

It is very common for people, especially women, to develop a loose, sagging, protruding abdomen that no matter how much they exercise and watch what they eat, doesn’t go away. Typical causes include:

  • Aging
  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Prior surgery
  • Significant fluctuations in weight

Using liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes this excess fat and skin from the abdomen and restores weakened or separated torso muscles. The result? A smoother, firmer, more attractive midsection. For more information on liposuction, download our free fact sheet.

Ready For A Flatter, Smoother, Sexier Tummy?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Aug 16, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Over the years, has your tummy become soft and flabby? Instead, do you wish it was firm and toned and sexy? Would you like to look better in bathing suits and lingerie? A tummy tuck might be an excellent option for you.

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen and restores weakened or separated torso muscles. The result? A smoother, firmer, more toned midsection. Often performed as part of a “mommy makeover” (a combination of procedures that helps restore a woman’s figure after having a baby), a tummy tuck is also very effective at removing excess skin from women and men who have experienced extreme weight loss in a short period of time.

Can I Get Pregnant After A Tummy Tuck?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Apr 26, 2017 11:00:00 AM

For many of my patients, a tummy tuck is a wonderful turning point in their lives, boosting their self-esteem and enabling them to have a positive body image, sometimes for the first time. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, reduces excess fat and skin and helps restore weakened or separated muscles. The result? A smoother, firmer, more attractive midsection.

However, it’s not unusual for a woman to want to get pregnant after having a tummy tuck, and often patients come to me asking of this is safe, or even possible. While it is perfectly safe to get pregnant after a tummy tuck without injuring yourself or the baby, the pregnancy will stretch the abdominal wall muscles and overlying skin, potentially reversing some of the improvements gained by the tummy tuck.

Win The Battle Of The Bulge With A Tummy Tuck

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Dec 7, 2016 10:00:00 AM

For many of us as we age, our stomach becomes loose and flabby, then starts to sag and protrude. There are many reasons for this, the most common being: heredity, pregnancy, surgery and losing a significant amount of weight. When this happens, both men and women come to me seeking ways to help reverse the “middle age bulge” that has crept up on them. My recommendation? A tummy tuck.

What is a tummy tuck?
