4 reasons why you should consider a tummy tuck


Even with the best diet and exercise program, that extra pooch and stretched skin in the tummy area won’t go away. Now is the time to consider tummy tuck surgery, which creates a smoother, firmer abdominal profile by removing excess fat and skin and repositioning stretched and separated muscles in the abdominal wall. Here are four reasons why you should consider a tummy tuck.

You are done with childbearing. Often, pregnancy can wreak havoc on a woman’s body, and the stretched skin in the abdominal area doesn’t bounce back as you would’ve hoped. If you’re planning future pregnancies, you will want to hold off on a tummy tuck because it could negate your surgical results.

You have lost weight. For men and women alike who have lost a significant amount of weight, removing the excess skin has both aesthetic and functional appeal, as they want to show off their new contours and get rid of skin that’s getting in their way.

A tummy tuck can be done simultaneously with other procedures. Often a tummy tuck is accompanied by liposuction to get rid of excess fat in the abdominal area. A tummy tuck is also an integral part of what’s called a “Mommy Makeover,” and combined with a breast augmentation with or without a breast lift, and liposuction. This all-encompassing surgery is an increasingly popular choice among women who want one recovery period instead of separate ones spread out over several months or years.

You’ll see immediate results. After surgery, you will notice initial results that improve even more as swelling subsides. After several months, you’ll see full results once the swelling has ended.

A tummy tuck can provide long-lasting results if you continue to follow a healthy lifestyle after surgery. To learn more about a tummy tuck and to see if you’re a candidate, call our office today at (908) 879-2222 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein.
