With more time at home during the pandemic, many people are looking to improve their physical appearance. Many people often zero in on their abdomens as the part of their body that’s in need of fine-tuning. The stomach can be a work in progress for the many men and women who turn to tummy tuck surgery to enhance their appearance.

  1. Diet and Exercise Won’t Remove a Pooch

    If you have tried diet and exercise and still have a stomach pooch, a tummy tuck may be just what the plastic surgeon ordered. Tummy tucks remove and tighten loose skin, eliminate extra fat and repair muscles in the abdominal wall that may be causing a bulge.

    A drain-free tummy tuck that includes liposuction can help remove a pooch while smoothing and contouring your abdomen. This combination of procedures can help accentuate the hard work you’ve put in on your own for a more refined overall outcome.

  2. Excess Skin Lingering After Weight Loss

    A tummy tuck can put the finishing touch on your weight loss journey.

    After significant weight loss, the skin may not spring back to its earlier shape. With the weight shed, you may be stuck with extra skin that sags and distracts from the work you’ve done to achieve a leaner abdomen.

    During a tummy tuck, Dr. Martin makes an incision in your lower abdomen and pulls the skin tight, removing any excess skin and ensuring a better fit over your muscles. A tummy tuck can help you more fully celebrate your post-weight loss figure.

  3. You’re Ready to Invest in Yourself

    A tummy tuck can be a great option for women who want to address post-pregnancy concerns. You should feel comfortable with your body and confident about your look. A tummy tuck is an investment in yourself that can offer long-lasting, beautiful results.
