Are you considering a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck is a great option for removing excess fat and skin. The procedure can also restore weakened or separated muscles creating a more appealing abdominal profile.

Although the tummy tuck can achieve desired results, it’s important to note that it is not ideal for everyone:

A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or a regular exercise regimen.

The results of the surgery are permanent, but will not withstand significant fluctuations in weight. Therefore, if individuals are considering future pregnancies or weight loss, they should not undergo the surgery until a later date.

A tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks. However, if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be removed—generally those treated areas below the belly button—they may disappear.
