Exercise and careful dietary habits often may not be enough to achieve a flat stomach. But an abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess fat and skin from the stomach. A tummy tuck can be the ideal cosmetic surgery procedure for:

  • Weight gain (beer belly or spare tire) from a sedentary lifestyle.
  • Excess abdominal skin following weight loss or pregnancy.
  • Abdominal fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
  • Separated stomach muscles from pregnancy.
  • Desire for a thinner profile and fit better into clothes.
  • Aging or hormonal weight gain.

Abdomens are toned differently. The doctor will carefully analyze the tone of the different regions of the abdomen, flanks, waist and hips, which are all influencing aspects of the abdominoplasty technique. The surgical approach will be different for a person whose main concern is a loss of tone in the lower central abdomen then for the person who has loose skin that extends around the waist and even into the back area.

While the tummy tuck will help the tone of the core muscles, there is much that patients can do to maintain the long-term benefits of the surgery. A balanced exercise program will help to maintain optimum results. The doctor will provide each patient who is considering a tummy tuck a detailed assessment of the factors that will contribute to a beautiful contour. These factors include the distribution of tone in the procedure, the distribution of fat in the classic compartments of the abdomen, flanks, and hips, the effects of deep structural tone on waist definition, and the patient’s own patterns of nutrition and exercise.

The doctor will control any discomfort you may feel with the use of pain pumps, delivering numbing medication to the surgical site for up to four days post-op for a more comfortable recovery.
