  • Pregnancy

  • Abdominal surgery, such as a C-section

  • Aging

  • Your natural body type

A tummy tuck is a popular procedure for men and women, particularly those whose bodies have undergone dramatic changes from weight loss. 

Many patients undergo an abdominoplasty after pregnancy or bariatric surgery.

A tummy tuck should be the last resort for people who have exhausted all other measures, and the procedure should not be used as an alternative to weight loss.

In summary, a tummy tuck helps to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing, slimmer overall appearance.


Having a flatter, firmer midsection can dramatically improve the way clothing fits and looks, helping you feel more confident and comfortable in your body.
