After childbirth, you may notice unwelcome changes in your body that you wish you could resolve. Fortunately, a mommy makeover can help. A mommy makeover combines multiple surgeries to reduce, tighten, and contour unwanted fat and loose skin. One of these surgeries is commonly a tummy tuck. So, what exactly is a tummy tuck, and are you a good candidate for one? Keep reading to find out.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
Also known as abdominoplasty surgery, a tummy tuck can resolve loose skin and/or stretched abdominal wall muscles. During tummy tuck surgery, I’ll make an incision at your bikini line, between your hip bones. Then, I’ll lift the skin and fat away from your abdominal wall. I will more than likely need to create a new, very natural looking belly button.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, I may suggest liposuction with your tummy tuck. The tummy tuck will remove excess skin and tighten your muscles, while liposuction will contour your body and leave you with more defined results. I can also perform liposuction on other areas of your body such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, arms and under the chin.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
After tummy tuck surgery, most patients report smooth, taut skin, and tight abdominal muscles. Some even notice an improvement in their stretch marks. If you move forward with this procedure, you’ll likely find shopping for tighter fitting shirts and dresses easier and more enjoyable. A tummy tuck can also restore your youthfulness and allow you to feel more confident in your own skin.
Good Candidates for a Tummy Tuck
I recommend a tummy tuck if you’re bothered by excess skin and fatty tissue in your abdominal area – particularly after having after having a child. It can help you achieve the pre-baby torso you may be longing for. You should be in good health and have realistic expectations. I always tell patients that we’ll achieve the best results if you’re fit and close to your goal weight. If you’re planning to have more children, you should wait to have a tummy tuck – or any mommy makeover procedure.
