Woman body part is being measured

What You Need to Know About the Tummy Tuck

What’s your least favorite body part? Is it your middle? Many moms struggle with the appearance of their mid-section. Men and women are often disappointed by their saggy belly after weight loss. If you’re not loving your tummy, come see us. A tummy tuck can turn a saggy tummy into a tighter, flatter one. Here’s everything you need to know about this important body contouring procedure.

Sometimes the Gym Isn’t Enough for a Flat Tummy

Do you hit the ab machines every time you go to the gym? For many men and women exercise and diet alone aren’t enough to tighten up the tummy. After pregnancy or weight loss you may be left with stretched out skin or separated abdominal muscles, two things the gym won’t fix. A tummy tuck does more than just shed fat and build muscle; it can remove this excess skin and repair separated muscles for a tighter, flatter tummy. If you’re not seeing the results you’d like at the gym, ask us about a tummy tuck.

Sometimes It’s Best to Wait

You’re going to love how you look after a tummy tuck, but for some men and women, waiting is better. If you’re planning future pregnancies or are not yet at a stable weight, you may want to wait before scheduling your tummy tuck. Your results can be reversed by subsequent pregnancies or weight gain.

Not All Tummy Tucks Are the Same

We want you to love your tummy tuck results. Classic tummy tuck techniques only address the lower abdomen and frequently neglect abdominal muscle tightening, often leading to less than satisfactory results. Dr. Tehrani uses a specialized technique known as lateral tension abdominoplasty which treats the entire abdominal area, from chest to the upper thigh, for a tighter, more youthful appearance. He was trained in this technique by the late Dr. Ted E. Lockwood, pioneer of the technique. Dr. Tehrani also offers a revision tummy tuck to patients that have unsatisfactory results from a previous surgery.

A Tummy Tuck Can Pair with Other Surgeries

Improve your tummy and other areas too by combining your tummy tuck with additional procedures. A tummy tuck pairs well with many other procedures including breast augmentation and/or a breast lift. If you’re coming in for a different procedure, ask us if you can add a tummy tuck. Spend less time in recovery!
