Ideally, Who Should Get a Tummy Tuck?

Many of our patients interested in a tummy tuck would like a tighter, toned abdomen. In addition to removing excess fat from the stomach and abdomen, the abdomen muscles are aligned into tighter formation(unlike during a liposuction procedure). Many mothers, post-partum and post-delivery after just one or multiple children may benefit from a tummy tuck.

The tummy tuck procedure is increasingly popular because it can also correct a post-partum condition of pregnancy and delivery that many mothers experience which is called diastasis recti. This condition can be observed as a bulge in the belly. It can occur with a high-weight pregnancy, older age above 35, or with a difficult labor. Adult men can also suffer from diastasis recti if they have abdominal obesity.
