If you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck, there are many aesthetic benefits. In general, the benefit of a tummy tuck is that it removes sagging, excess skin and fat. Other benefits include:

  • Flatter abdominal area
  • More defined lower body contours
  • Defined waistline
  • Long-term results
  • May reduce stretch marks in certain areas
  • Repairs separated abdominal muscles

If you have only minimal sagging skin isolated to the area below your navel, you may get the most benefit from a mini tummy tuck.

A tummy tuck can last many years, especially if you pursue a healthy lifestyle and do not gain a significant amount of weight.

Tummy tuck surgery can be especially beneficial to people who have lost a lot of weight, such as may occur after bariatric surgery. After losing weight, you may feel dissatisfied with the sagging skin left behind. A tummy tuck can remove this inelastic skin.

The only way to know whether a tummy tuck can benefit you is to discuss your goals for your body with our experienced plastic surgeon.
