It is important for our patients to know beforehand that this procedure is not a substitute for weight loss or a regular exercise program and while the effects of abdominoplasty are technically permanent, the results can be eliminated by significant fluctuations in body weight.
Therefore, individuals considering substantial weight loss and women who are considering future pregnancies should postpone a tummy tuck. Additionally, a tummy tuck cannot eliminate stretch marks but their appearance may be improved if they are located on the areas of skin that will be excised.
A tummy-tuck surgery is a customized cosmetic procedure tailored to meet the individual needs of our patients. If you are considering surgery and have questions, schedule a consultation with our team and let us help find a treatment plan that is right for you.
